Dr. Rosneck is a wonderful Dr. He is very professional and takes the time to listen to all concerns and answer all questions.

I was impressed that Dr. Rosneck actually looked at some of my medical records. I've been to multiple doctors who never even pulled my records up while I was in the room, yet they were giving me their opinion on my issues. AND he actually gave me somewhat of a physical exam, which other doctors never bothered doing. Maybe I'm setting the bar low, but I've had some pretty frustrating experiences over the past 1.5 years with the doctors I've seen. I actually felt like this visit was worth my time and energy and not a total waste like the last few.

Dr. Rosneck is an amazing surgeon who also cares about his patients. He very clearly explained everything to me throughout the whole process, and also listened to my concerns. I would definitely recommend him and his staff to anyone who needs surgery.

Front desk staff act as though they don't want to be there. Once I get past them the Drs are wonderful. I would and have recommended Dr. Rosneck to others. He has been absolutely amazing.
