“This was my first visit with Dr. Shatynski. He was friendly yet professional. He explained what he was doing and why it was so uncomfortable when trying to get the fluid off the hip. He put me at ease when I first got there as I was nervous. I felt he did not make you feel rushed but moved the visit right along the way it should go. If I have to have something like that done in the future I certainly would want Dr, Shatynski to do it.”

“Dr. Shatynski was a great listener and listened to my history of 13 years dealing with this annoying pain. I explained that I had never gotten an appropriate diagnosis because there wasn't a structural problem and without a proper diagnosis, physical therapy had not helped. He did some hands-on manipulation tests, sent me for x-rays and explained that it was one or two causes and how to treat them, conservatively at first. I'm trying targeted physical therapy, a standard and additional treatment and Dr. Shatynski said he would stay involved. A much better experience than my appointment previously.”

“I first met with Brady (I didn't catch his last name) who was friendly and thorough with his assessment. When he left, I went for an x-ray and then saw Dr. Shatynski. I've met him a few times in the past for various triathlon or running talks he'd give, and I've seen him once before as a patient as well. I love the guy; he's excellent in figuring out what's going on and explains things in a way everyone can understand. He has a very welcoming demeanor and talks like he's known me forever; even though I barely know him. No one ever really wants to visit the Doc, but if I have to, Dr. Shatynski is my guy!”

“The doctor was very thorough and professional. He took X-rays and explained his findings using both medical terminology and laymen’s terms. He was sought for a second opinion, unbeknownst to him. His conclusions are more reliable as they are corroborated by what he showed to me on the X-rays. I believe he, unlike the first doctor I saw at another practice, provided a solid medical opinion consistent with appropriate medical standards and procedures.”

“I love Dr. Shatynski! He has the perfect bedside manner and always, answers any questions or concerns I may have. When I get my hip injections, they are not always pleasant (most of the time not), but he tries to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I trust his judgment and I wouldn't trade him as my doctor for anything! He is most definitely an asset to The Bone & Joint Center! No issues with the waiting room staff. They are professional, friendly and knowledgeable and try to handle business as quickly as possible. Now as for Sarah, Dr. Shatynski's secretary, she needs and most definitely, deserves to have a different title! She is a very hard worker and does so much more, than just being a secretary! She too, is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, in and with everything she does! Not only does she make appointments, but she interacts with the patients, assists Dr. Shatynski in everything he does and to be honest with you, I think he would be lost without her! I'm not going say it's a pleasure to be there, but it is a pleasure and confident to know, that there are competent health care providers, who do have your health issues and best interest in mind! Dr. Shatynski is one of them!”

“Dr. Shatynski is great! I am a marathoner and had been struggling with with severe patellar tendonosis for over a year. Then my primary referred me to Dr. Shatynski and it's been nothing but improvement since. Other than the obvious which speaks to his medical qualifications, he respected me and my love of running and never once implied running marathons was something I needed to give up. He "gets it" and can relate based upon his own personal experiences. I knew from the first visit he would stick with this as long at it took to get be back out on the road. All I needed was to be patient and follow the rules. I would highly recommend Dr. Shatynski and his team!”

“Dr. Shatynski was very thorough with the examination. I like the fact that he takes the time to explain things to you and you don't feel rushed in the office. Even though my injury wasn't life threatening or anything it was preventing me from doing what I love to do and that was important to me. He took all the time needed to make sure I had the information and help that I needed to get me back to running. I would highly recommend him to anyone!”
