Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Hrnack was incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He didn’t talk over my dads head. He is awesome and I would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Hrnack is professional, caring and truly shows an interest in his patients as individuals. I highly recommend him. I am in the health care health so I probably expect a little more from my doctors. He spends plenty of time with his patients, I never felt rushed. He treated me for a fractured ankle and the outcome has been great. I am three months post op. Kathy S
Great Dr been trying to get answers for the knee pain and all other dr just said inflammation but this Dr figured it out and was wonderful.
Dr. Hrnack is a very wonderful, attentive and knowledgeable doctor. His staff was very nice and caring, as well. I called on the day of my injury and they recommended I come in now rather than later to meet with Dr. Hrnack to assess my injury. I am glad I went in. Dr Hrnack took his time to explain my knee injury after further testing and gave me recommendations on the healing process, all within a reasonable time period. I definitely would recommend him and his office to my family and friends. Thank TIOS Staff and Dr. Hrnack for making this an easy road to recovery.
Dr Hrnack has a "bedside manner" even though he is in the exam room, not a hospital room. He listens to all you say, makes copious notes, asks pertinent questions, and generally puts the patient at ease! Wouldn't switch doctors even if there was no charge!!
Scott was very pleasant and thorough. Thanks, Scott!
Dr Hrnack answered all my questions. I followed his advice and improved in amazingly short period of time - half a day. I was lucky to have appointment two hours after I made call. I'm very grateful for the service.
Always fast, helpful and staff friendly. I’ve never waited long and he covers everything I need to. I don’t feel rushed. Highly recommend this Dr. very thorough, does not overtreat, concerned with my issues and resolving them

It was a wonderful experience. Dr Hrnack was patient and answered all of my questions. Great bedside manner and communication.
Very informative & right to the point, which I like. Very nice & sincere.
Dr. Hrnack is incredibly patient and kind. He listens to all your concerns and questions, he takes his time explaining and demonstrating how things work. I never felt like I was being rushed through or that he didn’t care about my health. We were able to work together to come to a plan of action with him listening to my needs or issues. I would recommend him to my family, friends or even strangers. He and his staff are all very kind and easy to deal with, be it answering your phone calls, or being in the office.
Dr. Hrnack is great. He listens to what you have to say and how you feel about your healthcare. Very good doctor
He was incredible with my 12 year old son--super engaging and great bedside manner. Highly endorse him!
Dr. Hrnack has a great bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable as a patient. He even recommends you getting a 2nd opinion. I enjoyed my appt with him and researching my options now. I am looking into stem cell treatment due to the fact that surgery is invasive and there is a great amount of nerves that innervate the muscles of the leg and replacement causes disruption in one's personal gait and function of those muscles
Dr. Hrnack is a very kind, knowledgeable provider who truly cares about his patients.
His staff was amazing and Dr. Hrnack is an excellent doctor. Easy to talk to, explains thoroughly and he even remembers his patients even after 4 years.
Very informative and helpful. Always willing to help.
One of the best orthopedic doctors I have ever seen incredibly outgoing and knowledgeable
Very good demeanor. First time every needing to visit a doctor for this type of situation (Follow up recommendation from ER doctor for shoulder separation in vehicle accident) Explained everything well. Didn't have to wait long, although it was 9:15 am appointment on weekday. I have nothing to compare him to as I've never needed to have this kind of visit, but I will credit him to being the kind of doctor as far as personality and being informative that is good to have (across professions of medical fields) if you ever get anxious about having to see a doctor.
Dr. Scott was great with my son and took his time and explained everything. My son loved him.
Dr. Hrnack is an amazing, knowledgeable, and caring provider. For the first time, someone took the time to listen to me and to explain to me what was happening with my knee for the past 15 years. In the world of orthopedics, he is quite a rare find- many are too busy to take the time to listen with empathy and compassion. I recommend him 100% to anyone who needs an orthopedic provider. Thank you, Dr. Hrnack!
Dr Scott was very professional & informative as always. I have recommended him to others. The asst was rude. The Xray tech could have been nicer.
Best Doc I've Ever Been Too.
I absolutely love him he was very wonderful with my mother in law. We had a bit of a wait but he had a emergency so it was ok with us to wait
He took his time and answered all of my sons questions.
Love, love , love Dr. Hrnack and his staff. I will gladly take that hour drive, to get proper care. It's good to have a doctor that realizes that he works for me and not the other way around. Dr. Hrnack gives you his opinion and your options, then lets you decide your course of treatment. HE'S THE MAN! Much Love
All of the staff were friendly and professional. I felt very comfortable with the entire visit.
Dr. Hrnack, takes the time to visit and discuss all your needs and concerns. He is concerned about making sure you have a full understanding . He has a extremely calming personality. Awesome bedside manner, very reassuring..
My wrist had been hurting for 6-8 months and I finally decided to go see someone. Dr. Hrnack gave me treatment options and I'm happy to say my wrist is back in action! I could not do anything without being in extreme pain. Less than a week later, my wrist is functional and 95% of my pain is gone.
Extremely personable , upfront and very concerned about questions and making sure I fully understood.

Very helpful and realistic about recovery time
Professional and courteous while seemingly genuinely concerned with me as a person. Complete faith in him to take care of my orthopaedic needs.

Dr. Hrnack was great. He had to refer me to a different specialist but he was kind and explained what he thought was going on. Very nice guy.
He was very informative and gave me my options with pros and cons of each.
Most everything was great. X Ray technician hurt me trying to get a shot. Should have been more familiar with injury and proper way to arrange leg without causing pain. Dr. Hrnack was professional and reassuring all would be well.
Dr. Hrnack performed surgery on my knee after I had gone to the Baylor Grapevine emergency room with what he discovered was a serious joint infection. Dr. Hrnack's expertise may have literally saved my life and certainly saved the limb. He has determinedly followed up with my progress and now only two months later, I am able to walk almost normally and am looking forward to doing some stairs soon.
Dr. Hrnack had very attentive, he explained my condition very good and he was able to see my on the same day. I give him five starts

Dr. Hrnak is incredible! He spoke to me in terms that I could easily understand and gave me his full attention.
There was hardly any wait at all. We were in the waiting room for 5 minutes max. The medical assistant got me right back for x-rays, and there was hardly any waiting time in the exam room, either. Dr. Hrnack was very personable and made me feel right at ease. He listened to me, and took his time. He did a great job with the steroid injections in my hips - he gives a good shot! Highly recommend.
It was the best decision I made choosing to see Dr. Scott Hrnack. what seem to be an injury that would be dapilitating, I am now back to my active sport lifestyle.
The staff and Dr are very friendly and professional. I was explained everything in detail and was given ample opportunity to ask as many questions as I needed to. I was not rushed at all. He listened and did not talk over me. Good sense of humor too...which is very refreshing!
Great experience, Dr. Hrnack took his time with me and was thorough with his exam and my treatment plan.

Very informative doctor. I was not rushed. Explained to me my options for my condition. I will remain his patient for years to come.
Dr. Hrnack has been a straight shooter on identifying the problems in my shoulder and providing a realistic solution to what I wanted to acccomplish which allowed us to be on the same page for treatment and expectations. The surgery mirrored our pre surgery game plan and throughout the process I have not been surprised by the surgical results. Very good in being direct on what to expect and what he expects of you. I am one week post surgery and very happy with having Dr. Hrnack.
Waiting time for Dr was too long
Outstanding-- Procedure to keep me mobile and put off a knee replacement until I'm ready, has gone very well. The relief is tremendous and working on mobility, right now, with Rehab. Looking forward to the couple weeks and back to work. Thank You!!!
Dr. Hrnack made me feel very comfortable about having my surgery. He was polite and explained everything from my first x ray through the heeling of my broken leg.

I would recommend Dr. Hrnack to anyone with any orthopedic issues.

He takes the time to really explain the way things work & cares about the patient's health. He takes care of the whole person as well. He is a really great Dr.!!! 12-22-15
Great doctor. Straight to the point, but very thorough and knowledgeable.
Dr. Hrnack had several good recommendations and my wife had used him a couple of years ago. I believe that he was a good choice. John P
Will be getting knee operated on by him. Very knowledgable and an excellent choice for a Physician.
The main thing I look for in a physician is one that can help me work through my concerns without necessary jumping to meds or surgery. Dr. Hrnack falls into that category. I went in looking to spot check my concerns and then look for what should be the right results. For now it looks like its adjusting ways I workout, maybe a brace to help. If I do see it is an issue that continues, I'll definitely reach back out for next steps to help with my mobility concerns.
He was very attentive to my questions and took the time to listen and respond thoroughly.
Dr. Hijack was an amazing doctor! I was in severe pain & he was gentle. He took plenty of time to explain what was going on & all the treatment options. I will be seeing him again & I definately recommend him!

Dr. Hrnack thoroughly explained my diagnosis and offered ample time to ask whatever questions I might have. I highly recommend him.

I was very impressed with Dr Hrnack-knee bedside manner. He took his time explaining my diagnosis and options. I felt great about his direction in my course of treatment & his genuine desire to help me as a patient. Great 1st experience using Zocdoc. The reviews I read here is why I chose Dr Hrnack.
Early for appointment and they were ready.
Can't say enough good things about this doctor- always attentive and answers all my questions!
Great Doctor, very professional. Kept it completely real with what's going on with my knee. Informed me of all my options and treatments. Explained in detail the procedures that will take place. I am very happy with this doctor wish I had found him sooner.
Dr. Hrnack was awesome. He listened to everything I had to say about my issue. When he didn't have an exact diagnosis he told me he would not let me go until we had answers, even if it meant sending me to another dr. He treated me like a person.
I got to my appointment 30 minutes early and was in a room within 5 minutes of my arrival. He informed me of things that other doctors did not. I was very satisfied with him and would highly recommend him.
Professional, kind, informative - addressed all my questions and fears.
Great doctor !! Highly knowledgeable in all aspects of knee problems. Great office staff.

I would recommend him and have to my friends and family.
