He did a great job on my leg/ankle. Because of him I have full range of motion and I was almost at the point where I could have lost my foot from this injury and for that I am grateful.

P.. Witkowski clearly reviewed my MRI before the office visit. He was familiar with the possibilities for treatment/surgery. He explained concisely the options and recommended what was reasonable and best for my situation. I left this visit feeling confident in his recommendations. His professional manner was efficient while still being personable. I would certainly recommend him to anyone needing this type of specialty. I am a retired 32 year hospital employee (not NW) by the way and recognize great skills.

My surgical results are good. Beyond that, his bedside manner is less than friendly and he does not seem patient with questions. A friend seeking a surgeon for similar work asked me about this practice. My response was that my surgery (2 hrs) experience was good, but everything else (follow up, questions, office visits, overall concern & care) is not good there so would not recommend.

He knows everything about his area of practice. My first visit included X-rays of my foot, done adjacent to my exam room. They were available within minutes and the Dr. explained everything possible, with his recommendations for procedure. CT scans were needed for this last pre-op. visit and Dr. Witkowski went over them with me in detail. He then answered all of my questions in depth to help me make my decision regarding surgery.
