11/10/13 5 5 5 5 I was scared and put at ease. There is something unique and genuine with Dr. Uscinski. After the initial consult I was found to have been wrongfully diagnosed, Dr. Uscinski made things right. God bless you.  Respond

28/07/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Uscinski saved my life after a huge chronic subdural hermatoma. Never rushed a visit, went out of his way to talk with me and my family throughout my 17 ICU days and four in aGWU dreadful medical unit. Visited on Easter morning (instead of going to church), encouraged me through three surgeries, very respected by colleagues and staff. Dr. U is thorough, thoughtful, insightful, open to ideas, very skilled as a surgeon, puts the patient first. His staff is friendly and competent. He is born to be a surgeon and is a natural healer.

21/07/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Uscinski saved my life. I had been mis-diagnosed twice by other doctors after my arrival at the hospital. They literally did not know what was wrong with me. The final determination was that I had a brain tumor and that I was going to die shortly. Doctor Uscinski came to the hospital the next day and knew almost immediately what was wrong with me and acted quickly and professionally to save my life. I owe everything to him. I could write a book here telling everyone about what an amazing doctor - and most importantly - what a fantastic human being he is. But the best thing I can tell you is that this man is the best. He's perhaps one of the most intellegent, down to earth people I've ever met. If you're not close enough for him to treat you or your loved one - MOVE. Don't take the risk. I love this man and I owe my life to him. Do whatever it takes to make him your doctor. You won't regret it.

07/05/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Uscinski literally saved my life. After considerable testing, two other doctors had come up with two other - incorrect - diagnoses for what eventually ended up being a brain abscess. Dr. Uscinski came in and knew immediately what was wrong. His quick, expert action saved my life. Had he not performed the brain surgery so quickly, I wouldn't be here today enjoying my life with my family. He is truly heaven sent. If you're in need of a doctor with his expertise, I would recommend you doing ANYTHING you can to get him to work with you...change doctors, change hospitals, whatever it takes. He's truly the best. I'm here today because of this man and I owe my life to him.

27/01/08 5 5 5 5 Dr Uscinski is perhaps one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. He spends alot of time with his patients. He educates them and explains things, rather than talk down to them. He is absolutely the best doctor I have ever met!  Respond

05/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Uscinski Performed an Anterior Cervical Fusion on my Neck and throughout the process I never doubted his ability, after the surgery, my feelings were well founded as I was overwhelmed by the success of the Surgery. IF you are lucky enough to live in MD, and need Neuro or Spinal Surgery, there is no one better than Dr. Ronald Uscinski. If you are not lucky enough to live in MD and need this type of Surgery, MOVE THERE.  Respond

28/07/06 5 5 5 Excellent surgeon. Brought me back from a "beached whale with frozen flippers." After less than three months I am walking with some difficulty with a walker and laboriously writing with my left hand. He expects a lot more improvement from me over the next three months.
