Five Stars

I was referred to Dr. Pankratz by my primary physician, Dr. kompar Parmar. I liked Dr. Pankratz as soon as I spoke to him. He's a no nonsense doctor. He scheduled my knee replacement asap as I had been in severe pain for a long time, and I knew that I needed the surgery. He prayed with me before the surgery, something I didn't expect; but it almost brought me to tears. I choked when I told the nurse and I, actually, cried when I told my daughter. Six months later I needed another procedure. He prayed with me again. This time, my daughter was present and she witnessed it. I may be a weird kind of believer. I respect and love my God. I grew up catholic and received first communion, and would feel guilt when I didn't attend Sunday mass; but in my adult life I don't believe in the church nor the priest, pastor or nun. I just believe in God and I try to be the best human possible. But the prayers from Dr. Pankratz were so very sincere and I was immensely touched. I highly recommend Dr. Pankratz to anyone in need of orthopedic surgery.

Amazing, Caring & Knowledgeable Christian

Dr. Pankratz had been wonderful, he's treated my husband for years and I recently started seeing him. He did my husband's carpal tunnel surgery and trigger thumb surgery, he prayed with us before surgery and truly feel he is an amazing person. He's knowledgeable about what he does and if something is outside of his specialization he's not afraid to tell you that up front. He's a caring, happy person! He's not a typical Dr who is ready to move on to the next patient until he knows you are satisfied with his responses! It's very refreshing to know their are still genuinely good Drs and he's one of them! Thank you Dr. Pankratz for all you do!

Three Stars

Dr. Pankratz seems like a great doctor, however we have not been able to obtain needed surgery for my granddaughter because high insurance deductabe is required prior to surgery. Apparently they do not work with you to make any type of financial arrangements.
