Have you seen Dr. Michael Chmell?
ALL WENT WELL WITH DR. CHMELL
Posted on November 12th, 2017
I HAD A LEFT KNEE SURGERY WITH DR. CHMELL AND I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE OUTCOME AND HIS SURGICIAL SKILLS. I HAD ALMOST NO PAIN AFTER THE SURGERY.
Arrogant, in-compassionate and flat out rude.

Showed complete arrogance at all pre-op appointments which I hoped meant he was just so good he was arrogant. No! He is just arrogant as I had to have my replacement redone by another surgeon. Does not respect his patients nor have any concern for pain. After waking from surgery, he asked me how I was feeling. I replied, "In a lot of pain, knee hurts really bad." He responded something to the effect of you'll be fine, dont be a such a baby!!! Avoid this scalpel jockey.

Dr. Chmell did surgery on my knee and will be doing the same surgery on my other knee. He is an excellent surgeon who takes every possible percussion to make sure his patient will remain infection free and get the physical therapy they must have for complete success. I would and do recommend him to any one who asks!
Worst Experience in my Life!!!!!

Was referred this this "doctor" for lack of better term. Although the nurse had confirmed my meds, he was aware of them. He did not introduce himself. He barely reviewed my Xrays that he had requested nor the MRIs that I had brought. He did not look at my knees and left me crying in the room. I will never return to him - a great disappointment!!!!!!!

This was the second knee replacement I've had with Dr. Chmell. First one was successful and the second one even better. They now use a pain injection prior to closing which greatly reduces post op pain. That was greatly appreciated.

I had osteoarthritis in my hips at a fairly young age. Dr. Chmell replaced first the right then the left. I got back to normal daily activities quickly!

This doctor came into the room where I was and looked at my knee ex rays and gave me a card to see another doctor. Never said a word to me. I dont know why he didnt accept me. The doctors assistant told me I had a torn meniscus I already knew that. I thought Dr. Chmell was a knee specialist, that is reason I choose him. I will never recommend him to anyone. The visit was a waste of my time.
