Patient Reviews

This is my second knee replacement and I have nothing but the best to say about Dr. Jay Minorik and the team. You don’t just have a procedure and then get forgotten about they call to check up on you, you get daily text messages with tips for recovery and reminders and where you should be at. It’s been a wonderful experience.

-Mary Chown

This is the third time seeing Dr. Jay Minorik for two different issues over three years/shoulder and knee. I have found him to be experienced and friendly. I appreciate how he shared scans (MRI and X-ray) and took the time to thoroughly explain what was on the scan and what my options were. He has given my knee a couple of steroid injections. He does a good job answering questions I have about treatments and possible interventions. I never feel rushed. I highly recommend him.

-Tom Wilson

Takes time to answer all my questions, and is very approachable. Down to earth and doesn’t make me feel rushed. Rare find these days when so many of these “specialists” make you feel like you’re wasting their time by asking questions…
