Dr. Wowk is awesome and took a lot of time. I trust his medical opinion and it is aligns with what previous doctors have recommended - just that he is not pushing surgery and tries a more balanced approach. But Idon't trust the front desk staff! They are horrible and lied to me in two occasions.

Dr. Wowk doesn't listen. He talks over you. He doesn't pay attention to what you're saying about how you're feeling. He seems to think anyone, no matter the reason, who is on narcotic pain medication, is a pill seeker. Not thathe said it, but his attitude speaks for itself. He did a good job on my leg surgery but other than that, not so good @ bedside manner.

Dr. Wowk is very personable and no BS. He gets to the point, clearly explains the treatment, and clearly explains the next steps. I look forward to my follow-up appointment. I was very surprised that as a new patient that itdid not take several weeks to get an appointment. The staff is friendly, the facility is well maintained and the parking outside and seating inside are ample. I don't like doctors' offices but I enjoyed my visit here.

Dr. Wowk was pleasant enough, but he seemed rushed. I had to wait a long time at each visit. The staff is okay but not very friendly.

The doctor office did not receive the online docs I filled with zocdoc, so I spent time to fill them again. The doctor was very professional and explained every thing very well. I recommend him
