Dr Dworak is the best top notch surgeon in the twin cities area. I have trusted him with my life. Both of my hip replacements and revisions have turned out with a 100 percent resolution and perfect healing. He does diagnosis correctly he has assisted me with a plan of care for theurapeutic regiment. I will continue to see him for my new knee problem. I am so relieved that I have him as my Orthopod. He has treated me with kindness, dignity and above all he did listen to me. His technigue is proficient and he makes me feel good and not worried about any outcome. He delivers with faithful dedication to achieving the ultimate 100 percent outcome of healing and making your life better. His demeanor is one of humility and respect. He is a man of few words and I thank God that he has taken care of me. He also gives the best cortisone injections and in the right spot.
I had a horrible experience with Dr. Dworack. His beside manner is POOR! He talked down to me during the whole exam, which, by the way felt rushed. He didn't listen to my symptoms and actually scolded me a couple of times. He told me to stop telling him I had burcitis of the knee (although he had just asked me what was wrong with my knee. His own colleague told me that I had bursitis. I explained to him I already had two cortisone shots in that knee and they didn't work. He raised his voice and asked if HE was the one who gave me the shots to which I replied, "No". And then he muttered something about well than it wasn't done right.... His comments are arrogant and pompous! Somehow we got on the topic of my Rottweiler that has had surgery on her torn ACL. All of a sudden he became interested and actually pleasant to talk to. It seemed like he wanted to completely avoid the knee problem that I was having. He became impatient and irritable and asked me if I wanted the cortisone short or not! I was hoping he would have explained the other options that I might have. I made a hasty decision to let him give me the cortisone. A year and a half later I still have the same pain. I went home frustrated and dejected. My family physician suggested that I may want an MRI. After getting one I indeed have bursitis. Also, a partial meniscal tear, petellar tendon enthesopathy, and chondromalacia. Thanks for nothing Dr.! You were a big help!
Dr. Dworak replaced a hip for me about 4 years ago. It was a great success, quick rehab and has been pain free for the last 3 years. Dr. D is very particular about infection, making it part of his routine conversations with you and both his pre and post-op proceedure. His has a relatively brief personality and I witnessed a confrontation between him and a nurse where he scolded her for not being thorough enough in a pre-surgical evaluation. Personally, however, I could care less if he is very sociable or has a big ego - he does. But he's darn good at what he does and that is the only thing that I care about. I would return to him if I had to have it done again- without hesitation.
