Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Jelinek.

“I am very thankful for Dr. Jelinek. For sime time I have struggled with pain in both hips, but the pain has escalated over the last year. After tests and consultations it was determined the best course of action was total hip replacement for both hips. I have just completed the last surgery and looking forward to when I can get back to do the things I did before, but most of all I'm looking forward to being out of pain. Dr. Jelinek took time to address all my concerns and questions putting me at ease with the decision to move forward with the surgeries. In addition, I was able to have the surgeries in their outpatient surgery center which was amazing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jelinek and Lewiston Orthopaedics.”

“Dr. Jelinek gave me a cortisone shot. He listened to me about my scary injection with another doctor, and he carefully gave me the shot slowly instead of a big hard shot. He is wonderful! Everyone I know says so!”

“I am very fortunate to have had Dr. Jelinek perform surgery on both my shoulders. Dr. Jelinek, who is a very talented surgeon and compassionate person, takes the time to listen to my concerns and frustrations regarding my injury and lifestyle. He patiently explains the MRI, x-rays and all the options of treatment. He also has the natural ability to make a person feel like "Part of the Team." I now have full range in both shoulders!”

“Dr. Jelinek did a wonderful with my surgery and followed up care. Before surgery, during office visits, he "listened" to me and what I had to say about my symptoms, my history, and my pain. He offered suggestions, different options for treatments, and his opinion when asked for it. Many providers won't share their opinion. I very much appreciated that. I loved the process of surgery at the Ambulatory Surgical Center versus a hospital stay. That was superband I strongly recommend this process for anyone that meets criteria! Follow up care was great. I highly recommend Dr. Jelinek - he is awesome!”

“My Son broke his arm while playing hockey and yes it took pins to straighten the arm out, Dr. Jelinek and his staff did a great Job with him. They helped me through a knee that had 2 meniscus tears, a bone spur sticking in my ACL tendon, scare tissue, and arthritis. Adam went through my options and recommended what should be done and made going to the Doctor; which I don't care for; a good experience. I walked in using a cane and my knee crunching every step and walked out after surgery with no help from a cane or anyone helping me. They made it easy, friendly and a relaxed atmosphere to get issues like this fixed. They helped with my appointments and my schedule and reminded me when I need to be there and what I needed to do. They worked with my insurance which can be a challenge in this day and age and went above and beyond when insurance needed to be more timely in the decision making process. I get asked often who I would recommend when knees and other issues come up and I always recommend DR. Jelinek and always will.”
