Very helpful.

SBO Patient 4/16

The doctor and nurses were nice. I didn't really get any direction to what I should do after I left the office.

SBO Patient 2/16

Very helpful in arranging surgery to fit my timeline. Appreciated that immensely.

 

SBO Patient 1/16

I came with lump on my collarbone area. He was unable to give me a diagnosis except that he didn't think it was bone related. I was referred by a vascular surgeon. I feel that I am not getting any answers as to the cause of this lump. Dr. S did spend time with me answering all my questions so I was grateful for that.

 

SBO Patient 12/15

All good.

 

SBO Patient 12/15

Switched to Sieradzki, because the previous Dr I was seeing at that office was always rushed, and didn't seem genuinely concerned with my problems.

SBO Patient 9/15
Doctor was great!

SBO Patient 9/15
All very good.

SBO Patient 9/15
I believe more time should be allotted per patient.

SBO Patient 9/15
Dr Sieradzki was extremely caring and never gave me the feeling that he was rushed in any way. He gave me the options and allowed me to make my own decisions concerning my care. I appreciate that he took the time to make me feel comfortable throughout the process and genuinely seemed to care about my overall health and recovery

SBO Patient 8/15
Your entire staff at SBO is the very best !

SBO Patient 7/15
highly competent

SBO Patient 7/15
It felt like he was in a rush, but I do have confidence in his ability as a physician.

SBO Patient 7/15
Even though we were visiting in the area from Florida I would highly recommend SBO to family and friends from the South Bend area.

SBO Patient 6/15
Very pleased with Dr Sieradzki.

SBO Patient 6/15
I already have recommended him to friends!

SBO Patient 5/15

I have been very impressed with the knowledge Glen Lofy has with my condition and reason for therapy!  He is a true asset to your organization!

SBO Patient 4/15

Again, would wish a doctor could all about you. But getting right down to the problem is so important when you are in pain. He took care of my needs right away.

SBO Patient 4/15

My wife and I were in the room at the same time being examined for our complaints by the doctor.  It was her first time there.  I have been there before with my 95 year old mother and it was my choice to come to you with my injury.

SBO Patient 4/15

The partial shoulder replacement by Dr. Sieradzki was very satisfactory.

SBO Patient 3/15

He appears to be knowledgeable, would have liked the explanation on what appears to be extension capabilities.

SBO Patient 3/15

Good experience from Care provider

SBO Patient 3/15

Dr. Sieradzki is great.

SBO Patient 3/15

Dr. is a good doctor and great human being who cares about patient.

SBO Patient 3/15

Dr. Sieradzki is a very good doctor and I was pleased to meet him and very confident in his skills.

SBO Patient 3/15

Care provider very informative.  Examined shoulder injury, explained procedure he would be doing, answered questions we had.  I have been to this facility before with knee and had arthoscopy surgery.  I had a good experience and wanted to come here for my shoulder.

SBO Patient 3/15

Worth waiting for.

SBO Patient 2/15

Have already recommended to others with similar injury.

SBO Patient 2/15

Dr. Sieradzki has been fantastic.

SBO Patient 1/15

Dr Sieradzki is a very caring and exceptional doctor!

SBO Patient 12/14

Dr. provided me with the information I needed and was very concerned about my injuries and subsequent rehab.  I am very satisfied with my health needs

SBO Patient 12/14

Dr Sieradzki was great.  Need more like him.

SBO Patient 11/14

I have had a good experience even though my fractured hip is still giving me problems.

SBO Patient 11/14

Good experience

 

SBO Patient 9/14
We were very pleased with the amount of time our doctor took with us explaining my daughter’s situation. It was very helpful to see the MRI and x-rays so we knew exactly what we were dealing with.

SBO Patient 9/14
Doctors are always good, but the wait times are often significant.

SBO Patient 9/14
I feel very confident with Dr Sieradzki. He is pleasant, kind, thoughtful, he looked me in the eye, didn't have his back to me when he spoke, showed concern.

SBO Patient 9/14
Good experience.

SBO Patient 8/14
Have recommended Dr Sieradzki to several people already. One or two have seen him.

SBO Patient 8/14
I definitely 100% would recommend your facility to all my family friends and co-workers.

SBO Patient 8/14
Good.

SBO Patient 8/14
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sieradzki. He answered every question and concern I had. Followed through and made sure his surgery fixed my ankle and scheduled follow up appointments between my physical therapy to ensure I was healing well. He is an excellent surgeon and person and I cannot thank him enough that I am able to walk, stand, and sit without the pain I experienced prior to surgery. And I am almost back to my passion of horseback riding, which would never happened without him.

SBO Patient 7/14
I am grateful for the personal concern and genuine interest that Dr. Sieradzki showed me.

SBO Patient 7/14
Already referred friend to Dr Sieradski.

SBO Patient 6/14
It is so nice to have a doctor that doesn't seem in a hurry and takes as much time as I have questions.

SBO Patient 6/14
I think Dr. Sieradzki is a really great doctor. At first I was a little concerned about surgical experience because he's so young and the doctor I had here at home kept emphasizing his 20 years experience but after discussing my case with him, I had no doubts and was totally comfortable with having the surgery.

SBO Patient 5/14
Dr. Sieradzki made a special effort to schedule Bruce's surgery with enough time for aftercare before a scheduled absence.

SBO Patient 5/14
I have already recommended Dr Sieradzki to quite a few people.

SBO Patient 5/14
Had an MRI, wish he could have explained it to me, using the screen he was looking at.

SBO Patient 3/14
Excellence in all phases of my visit.

SBO Patient 3/14
Dr Sieradzki did my shoulder surgery & I trust him to do my hip surgery when the time comes.

SBO Patient 3/14
Dr. Sieradzki explained my shoulder surgery to me, the surgery went very well as is my recovery. He also called me at home to see how I was doing and to answer any questions. I am very happy with total experience.

SBO Patient 3/14
This practice has been a very pleasant experience would recommend to anyone.

SBO Patient 3/14
I kinda felt that the doctor wasn't seeing me as an individual just another routine knee injury. The pain I was/still am having in my knee didn't seem to concern that much.

SBO Patient 2/14
Very professional; I have confidence he is competent to handle my problem.

SBO Patient 1/14
Had never met Dr. Sieradzki and really liked him -- felt that he cared and was impressed that he took the time to answer all of my questions.

SBO Patient 12/13
I think the doctor could have been slightly more technical with his descriptions. I had some issues with pain management the first 2 days post surgery. It was hard to get in touch with someone to address options. The end result was good though as the doctor was able to add a second medication that caused the pain medication to be metabolized slower and last until the next dose. I would have liked more detailed instructions to give to the physical therapist. The PT script was fairly vague and standard.

SBO Patient 11/13
He was recommended to me and I would recommend him to family and friends.

SBO Patient 11/13
Great.

SBO Patient 9/13
Just OK.

SBO Patient 8/13
Dr. showed compassion and took the time to answer all of my questions.

SBO Patient 8/13
Dr. S. did not seem to know that I was only seeing him because Dr. Y. was on vacation, and that I came in because of acute pain & not wanting to wait until next week.

SBO Patient 8/13
Many people have limited vocabulary in terms of anatomy, however, my wife and I are quite knowledgeable in this area as she is a Dr. and I taught anatomy and physiology. I prefer a slightly more technical description of my condition.

SBO Patient 8/13
Neither the 'Nurse' nor the Doctor seemed to have much of a personality. I definitely didn’t get a 'warm and fuzzy' feeling from either of them. However, they got the job done.

SBO Patient 5/13
Would be helpful to have medicine and exercise instructions in writing as easy to forget or confuse new routines.

SBO Patient 3/13
It was good, would prefer just one doctor for overall care as opposed to getting handed off to another.

SBO Patient 2/13
Everyone was great. Lots of smiles, lots of laughs.
