Dr. Rosneck is straightforward but compassionate. He is also an excellent surgeon that I have had personal experience with a couple of times.I always research about whatever health condition I have to deal with, but when talking with Dr. Rosneck, he's the rare case where I feel completely comfortable & at peace taking his advice. If you see him you can rest assured that he has your best interests at heart & will do a great job if you ever need to have surgery.

Dr. Rosneck is very personable and professional. He did a great job on both of my knees 13 years apart, and I am very grateful. He listens and is respectful and thorough.

Dr. Rosneck took the time needed to examine my injury and make recommendations for next steps. I never felt like he was rushed -- in fact, I felt like he was willing to take time to not only diagnose my injury, but also to care for my fear and anxiousness. He instilled confidence as a physician who has expertise and the ability to engage me in understanding the injury and the next steps for diagnosis, possible findings, and both short-term and long-term treatment expectations.

Dr. Rosneck was fantastic. My issue was not straightforward, I was in a lot of pain and scheduling was challenging. Once I got in front of him I knew I was in excellent hands and he gave me a sense of confidence and security that he would put me on the right path - and he did.

Excellent experience with Dr. Rosneck. I saw him for a second opinion and he was unrushed, kind, and clear. He expressed confidence in my current provider's recommendations and was supportive of me pursuing surgery with my current provider, but also made it clear that he would be glad to do the surgery himself if I preferred that.
