Great experience. Dr Pinkowski is a very personable person and easy to talk to. He has a genuine concern for his patients and makes an effort to get to know you as a person and patient. Straight shooter and will tell you like it is. I had my ACL reconstructed in 2017, and couldn't be happier with the decision I made. No issues at all. My recent visit was for follow up on a recent incident with my repaired Knee. All good, as I didn't damage the previous work that was done on my knee. Thanks Dr. for taking great care of me.
