Dr. Rosneck is the best doctor I ever had. Immediately, he walked I to my room and said, "I have a reason you're having hip pain." He was so confident. He walked me through all my scans, explained things in detail. He Is clear cut and treats you with kindness.One of my favorite things was his bedside manner. He was genuinely frustrated for me, that it took 10 years of hip pain and 2 surgeries to see this. I will never forget when he shook my hand and promised I would be taken care of. He changed my life. All because he is thorough and listened to me.

Dr. Rosneck listened when no other doctor would. Despite being turned away from another surgeon's office because there was "nothing seen on the scan", Dr. Rosneck believed that I did have something going on and was willing to take on my case. It turned out that he was able to find an issue with my labrum and was able to replace it, leaving me in a MUCH better place pain-wise!

I could not be more thankful for the promptness in scheduling this appointment by the staff of Dr. James Rosneck.
