Ratings for Dr. Jan Splawinski
After falling and badly breaking my back I was taken on a 45-minute ambulance ride to Vernon hospital. Upon arrival at the Vernon hospital, the ER doctors were waiting for me. The ER Doctor messed up badly by missing the burst fracture on an x-ray and I was roughly handled by the ER staff for a CAT scan to try an find the cause of the pain. Once it was determined what was wrong Dr. Splawinski was at the hospital in 20 minutes and the care I received from himself and his staff could not have been better if it came with a winning lottery ticket. If you want your handheld with sympathetic eyes and words this is not the doctor for you. But if your looking for a no-nonsense get to it knowledgeable surgeon who doesn't waste time to get your back repaired Dr. Splawinski is that surgeon. I can not thank him enough for what he did for myself and the total care he gave me while I was under his charge.
Dr splawinski has performed back surgery & knee replacement surgery on me both with excellent results! Bedside manner- he tells it like it is and does'nt do all the fuzzy talk which I appreciated as well! Would not hesitate to recommend him & feel privileged to have had him work on me🤙 Five stars from this guy!
Unfortunately, our son was mistakenly referred to this Dr by his wife who was in ER at the time. Our son has a broken foot and should have been referred to Dr Ball's locum. Dr Splawinski gave us incorrect advice on managing the broken foot and grabbed it so hard and suddenly that our young son now has a fear and distrust of Drs. The two of them also delayed our son's recovery by week's with their inaccurate advice and information.
How about a no star rating! Speaking on behalf of my elderly mother, he did his post-op visit and asked her how she was feeling. She wasn't feeling well or very mobile after the surgery. So she indicated to him that she feels worse. His response " I guess we did the wrong surgery" and walked out of the room. Who says that kind of thing !? Is he looking for the gold star in the worst bed-side manner if the year award? Along practicing medicine, Dr. Jan Splawinsky practices being a total prick.
I came to Dr. Splawinsky with severe sciatic pain caused by spinal stenosis, degenerative disc and arthritis. I simply could not be on my feet for any more than five minutes without experiencing a severe burning pain down my left hip and leg. I had tried message therepy, physio therapy, cortisone shots, acupuncture and cold laser therapy; all to no avail. Dr. Splawinsky performed insturmented spinal fusion on L4, L5 and S1 on me. Now almost four months after surgery I am virtually pain free and basically as flexible as I had been before the surgery. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Likewise, his staff (i.e. Tina) runs a very efficient office and was also very knowledgeable and helpful with a number questions that I had. I was very apprehensive about having this procedure but Dr. Splawinsky gave me an excellent result that was actually beyond my expectations. I highly recommend him!
