*Dr. Masnyk is a wonderful doctor and person. He speaks to his patients on there. The day I met with him to discuss my back surgery he spent 45 minutes with my husband & I! He showed us aides he made and didn't have until all our questions were answered satisfactorily. Northwestern Med is lucky to have him on there staff. I am luck he did my surgery!

I have full confidence in tha abilities of Dr. Masnyk and if it were not for his surgical skills, I would not be here today! I have recommended others to him and would only want him to perform any additional surgery i might need.
