Ratings for Dr. Stephen A. Mikulak
I am 73 years old/young. Knees injuries from soccer, hockey and tennis. Dr. Mikulak performed 1st TKR Left 7 years ago. It was very good. My 2nd TKR Right I had 6 days ago. Surgery 4/5/18 Thursday. Released from hospital the next day, Friday. Saturday came physical therapist, Monica to my house. Started exercising. Sunday-Wednesday exercising. Every day taking only: 1 Tylenol for pain, 1 Feldene for inflammation, and 1 Aspirin 81mg. Today, 4/11/18 Wednesday walked 1/2 mile, with many stairs. Dr Mikulak is an excellent surgeon. Thank you also to his super staff, Micheal Walker and Michelle!!!!!!!!!!
I love Dr Mikulak! He is a highly skilled surgeon who did my joint replacement with great competency. No post op complications & the office staff is super easy to reach through email. I am so happy my insurance company connected me with him! I have recommended him to all my friends & associates. Thanks Dr Mikulak!
Yes the wait is usually long but this is the curse of the large ortho group. Dr. Mikulak is the only ortho interested in actually fixing my knee. Other orthos told me to avoid replacement or that my knee wasn't bad enough! Well, there were way too many things I had to avoid doing and when they went in to replace it, it was much worse then they all thought! My life is so much more active now with much less pain!
Horrible on every level. Receptions are evil. Waited over an hour to see a doctor who rushed me out of the room without even a piece of paper with my diagnosis. They don't answer phones, take long lunches, and are late schedualing MRI's and surgeries. I don't have ONE good thing to say about the guy..
Wait time is a little long at this busy practise, however, the skill and personal attention of Dr Mikulak is well worth the wait. My arthroscopic knee surgery was almost painless and my recovery time was minimal. The OC Orthopidic center was efficient, friendly and I highly recommend both Dr Mikulak and the center.
Had to wait too long to even get an appt and then had to wait nearly an hour to be seen. That's not acceptable! Dr. Mikulak was nice enough, but too rushed and he didn't answer my questions to my satisfaction. He seemed far more interested in just scheduling surgery and offering cortisone before he really knew all the details about my condition. Calif Orthopaedic Specialties and Dr. Mikulak came very highly recommended, but I feel both were grossly over-rated! Plus, the fees there were higher than any other medical practice I've been to. Sorry but I won't be having my surgery here!
