Absolutely the worst care I've ever received. I've had knee problems since I was 10 and seen many orthopedics/surgeons as well as worked as a medical assistant and scribe for one for 8 months, so let me tell you this guy is the worst of the worst. His bedside manner is non-existent. Didn't interact with me at all during my physical exam, didn't explain my injury, didn't explain what my physical limitations should be, didn't explain my x-rays, didn't ask about my daily physical activity or history of problems with the knee, only ordered an MRI at my request since every other time I've massively dislocated my knee I typically have some sort of soft tissue damage, did not outline any form of treatment plan to prevent this from happening again, didn't ask if I had any questions, and rushed out of the room so quickly I didn't even have the time to give him a piece of my mind. Seriously, the physician visit from start to end took 6 minutes and he just dictated to his scribe without saying a word to me. I spent more time and had a better conversation with the x-ray technician than I did Dr. Dounchis. Absolutely shameful behavior from a physician. Thankfully I'm used to these type injuries and a medical student so I at least know to advocate for myself and insist on better care but I can only imagine the hundreds of people he has let slip through the cracks. VERY obviously he is in this for the money to see as many patients as possible and not actually invest any time or energy into someone's quality of life. Also based on my previous orthopedic experience his exam was incomplete to say the least. He did a few basic stability tests, didn't ask about any tenderness along the joint line, didn't watch me walk, and did no kind of comparison to my uninjured leg. Having seen multiple other orthopedics in my life as well as assisted in hundreds of physical knee exams to say he cut corners is an understatement.

Very positive experience, all questions were answered by the doctor and his staff, and most important terrific outcome for my knee replacement. Recommended him to others for knees and they were happy. He was always pleasant to me. I was looking for a great doctor and found him in Dr. Dounchis.

No conservative treatment here. Everybody gets a joint replacement. But of course he is a paid employee lackey of NCH and money is all they care about

I found him to be arrogant and inconsiderate insisting on a diagnosis of arthritis in my knee. Second opinion doctor and surgery proved him wrong. Not my kind of doctor.

I cannot comment on Dr. Dounchis's expertise as a surgeon, as I did not get past the first visit. I found him to be extremely arrogant. The office staff did not have the proper paperwork in my file to help Dr D make a 2nd opinion for an an upcoming surgery. Rather than being apologetic or trying to find out what happened after I waited 90 minutes or offering a reasonable explanation when I asked, he immediately became offensive and irritated with me. Will not go back and would never recommend. If you think doctors are like Gods, he is the one for you. If you want someone to treat you with respect and equality, avoid him at all costs.

Both my wife and I had hips replaced by Dr. Dounchis. I was walking without a walker 1 1/2 weeks after surgery, and driving my Miata 3 weeks after surgery. Amazing robot-assisted anterior process (he's the national expert on that!). Now my wife needs the other hip replaced and we'll travel from Minnesota to Naples to have Dr. Dounchis do it. He's the best. While not real talkative, he's totally attentive, sympathetic, and professional. We also have a friend who had a knee replaced by him, and he was equally expert with that--she was in church walking with only a cane 1 1/2 weeks after surgery! Obviously, we trust him completely.
