Appreciate the team approach & expertise of this department.
Exceptionally great visit and service
My doctor is an excellent surgeon, but he should really spend more time with his patients during pre-and post operation office visits. I felt like I was just a number and that he was jamming in as many patients as possible in the day in order to meet the "UPMC efficiency model" of patient care. This was a big operation for me but somehow the doctor didn't make it feel that way
Dr Rodosky operated on my shoulder several years ago. The other is now going bad so I came from Florida to seek his advise and schedule surgery if he deems it appropriate.
Dr Rogosky is the best.
I wouldn't have anyone other than Dr Rodosky handle my care. He's very professional and goes right to the point. Without him or his staff I would of lost the use of my arm. I could never thank him and his staff enough. I will always pray for them all. Best in the city.
Rodosky is an excellent doctor; excellent demeanor. Brief honest evaluation. I trust him completely.
Dr. Rodosky is an excellent surgeon. This was my third rotator cuff surgery and I would not have gone to anyone else. But he lacks social commnication with me.
great jod, need more health care providers like this. i wish upmc would bring this model to erie, pa.
wait to see MD was over an hour. Sat on table for 40 min.
Dr. Rodosky and staff were great.
Very knowledgeable and professional!!
good experience with Dr. Rodosky and his assistant.
all experiences where good
I greatly appreciate the professionalism and concerns for my well being.
Dr. Rodosky and his staff are the best :)
very impressed with everything
I was so relieved when this doctor actually believed we when i told him my rotator cuff is in extreme pain. The last two did not, and required me to do excruciating and damaging rehab exercises that only made my torn rotator cuff worse, before they would even prescribe an ultrasound or xray. This doctor acknowledged that surgery is the only way to repair this shoulder.
I was very pleased with the knowledge of my previous surgery as it pertained to my visit.
A suburb and caring doctor.
The morning went very well and everyone was kind and considerate. As an out patient instructions for going home were very explicit. The outpatient hospital was very clean and I did comment on that when I was leaving. I did comment on that when I was leaving.
Both my mom and I had an appointment back to back with the same office and provider. The office and provider could not have been more accommodating to my Mom who is 88 and to me. They were great taking care of both of us. So grateful to all of them.
Dr. Rodosky is one of the finest doctors I have ever had. I travel over three hours to see him. I find that he is brilliant at what he does and is very compassionate. He is a credit to your establishment. ( I consider him and Concetta the 'A Team' and highly recommend them.)
Dr. R repaired my rotator cuff in July 2015. It was torn again in April 2016. Both times while golfing. Dr. R repaired it again in May 2016. So I am sure it was a bad experience - lots of pain and I was unable to live my life normally.
I feel very confident in Dr. Rodosky
Physician did not fully explain actual surgical procedures performed; answered only when prompted, even though the actual procedures varied from what was originally planned.
Dr. Rodosky is a great surgeon and I made the right choice for him to do my shoulder surgery. Connie, his PA is wonderful. Great response to email, phone calls and answers any and all questions on site. Great team.
Very pleased with provider
Was taken back to the exam promptly. Once in exam room it took 55 minutes for the doctor to come in and my appointment was at 7:10am.
More than a hour late for appointment!
dr. rodosky is the best this survey reflects a follow up visit concerning my rotator cuff repair in fact over the last two years i have referred over 15 new patients to dr. rodosky for a surgery consult i don't know how many actually followed up with dr. rodosky but he said several of them did anyway dr. rodosky is the greatest IMHO.....
I felt the doctor didn't fully understand the physical therapy exercises I'm going through and I didn't fully articulate the hunch I have about the cause of my pain. The time was too quick and he'd made up his mind.
very professional staff and environment.
excellent doctor and facility
Very prompt attention out in less that 1 hour from arrival at the office
very good experience over all
Dr. Rodosky show great concern with my recent shoulder surgery. He immediately orders x-rays and MRI.
every experience i have had with upmc has always been great!
Dr rodosky is the best
I am very pleased with the care I receive from this office and the doctor, he is an excellent doctor.
this was my 2nd shoulder surgery, I m further ahead in a week then I have been in the past year..I will travel an hour or more for the care of my shoulder.. Dr Rodosky is a quiet man, but he is an excellent Doctor..Connie his PA is great!!
Dr Rodosky is so very wonderful. I can't say enough...he is so kind and understanding, taking all the time I needed to explain the process to me. He put the necessary needles into my shoulder from behind so I didn't see them. I never felt any pain at all. In fact I didn't realize he had started yet, let alone was finished.
This was my first visit with Dr RTodosky and I am very well pleased. I told them I was there for a second opinion and they discussed the possibilities that I needed to know and were very kind and preceptive about my situation.
I am very pleased with Dr. Rodosky and his staff. They have always been exceptionally knowledgeable and very understanding.
Seemed a little rushed. Also would have liked more information on what exactly to expect following procedures. How long recovery, any concerns or possible complications.
Top notch, professional facility. Dr. Rodosky and his staff came highly recommended, and I can see why.
I believe that I received the best care that any Pittsburgh area doctor could provide.
I have had great care from Dr. R and all of his staff. They really care that your surgery and after goes well.
Entire crew extremely diligent, understanding, efficient, professional.
Overall care was at the top of the scale, the UPMC Sports Center Staff was great, Dr Rodosky did a great job of explain what we have to do to fix my shoulder. Very comfortable environment. His PA was great also.
after seeing many Drs I was glad dr rodosky could tell me what was wrong with my shoulder and how he was going to fix it!
I am amazed at the smooth running of all upmc employees as well as the communication over the computer..
I only had a good experience with Dr. Rodosky. He was thorough in checking my shoulder. He also explained options for my care.
Thank you Dr. Rodosky. The BEST!
Dr. Rodosky and his fellow Greg and team were empathic, professional, optimistic and helpful.
needed tests were performed during the same visit and I promptly received results.
everything was amazing. Only want was to have a better recap at end of appt to answer what is wrong with me and next steps for me as individual i.e. what I can do to start healing process
I could not be happier with the service I received from the provider.
Dr. Mark Rodosky is one of the finest doctors I have ever had. He is soft spoken and quick. He has a great balance of intellect and compassion for his patients. I am grateful to have him as my doctor and I would highly recommend him.
every time I go to see Doctor Rodosky I'm always happy with the respect he gives each patient. I never sit in waiting room long, but if he is backed up I understand because he truly listens to the patient so I don't mind waiting ( example this last appt. he was behind an hour) , I know I get the same respect as all the other patients. he's worth waiting for. His assistant Connie, she's just as amazing and as thoughtful, full of knowledge as Doctor Rodosky. very happy with my care I receive there and have referred friends and family there
Dr. Rodosky was fine. The only thing that I observed which might be disconcerting to some is that he listened to me describe my condition and history as he was doing that he was also examining my shoulder. While I'm sure that he can do both at the same time just fine, I bet some people would like to finish telling the whole story/background of the issue before any examination takes place.
Dr. Rodosky did a great job with the surgery. Up until the last visit I was pretty satisfied. Connie the PA and Kathy were very good, patient and attentive. on the last visit however, I was kept waiting in the waiting room for over 50 minutes. I stepped out and asked how much longer iy would be. They never apologized, first silence then one of them said the Dr. would be in soon. 10 minutes later I was seen, Dr. Rodosky spent 1 minute certainly no more than 2 minutes. I can't imagine what that follow up visit will cost. Whatever my insurance pays will have to be enough. That's my final visit, ashamed it ended on such a negative note.
I really appreciated my interactions with Dr. Rodosky. I thought he was very open and professional with me. He listened and answered questions I had. My only minor thing was I felt he could've spent more time in the follow up with me because I had a couple questions with post-op care. However, I understand that everything went well with my surgery and he may have been behind with other patients. This was not a big enough complaint to affect my overall satisfaction with him or my care. Just a comment.
I thought the whole entire collaborative team was amazing! my needs were addressed quickly and with ease
very knowledgeable; calm demeanor.
Dr. Rodowski and Connie are the best and have cared for my (reoccuring) injury for over ten years. I would not trust another Surgen or team with my shoulders. They are one of UPMC's Best.
I am very pleased with Dr. Rodosky's surgical procedure and follow-up care.
As a surgery patient of Dr. Rodosky 2 years ago, I was very impressed and thankful for the advice he gave me at this visit on June 20 regarding my current problem.
A Great experience all the way around. five ***** Care
I was pleasantly surprised with the attention, care, concern for details provided by this provider. He is obviously extremely well educated and experienced in the specific area of concern I have been experiencing. He was patient to respond to each question and help me to understand the problem.
excellent surgeon! very concerned with patients well being. great nurse and secretary!
great provider and staff.
I was referred to Dr. Rodosky by a friend and was so happy I had gone to him. I needed a second opinion in which I was referred to Dr. Rodosky. He is the best surgeon I have ever had the pleasure to complete my surgery.
Everyone was very efficient! Staff was courteous and respectful!
The office visit lasted approx. 8 minutes with exam and consultation for surgery which I thought was minimal time afforded but excellent in recommendation of treatment and surgery to be performed.
they were good
The professionalism,care,and quality of the doctor and his staff is unequaled
Very good and helpful
This was my first visit to the office. I was very impressed with the efficiency of the entire staff as well as Dr. Rodosky.
I have been seeing Dr. Rodosky for many years, through three orthroscopic surgeries and many injections. That should speak for itself. He is an extremely good doctor and a very caring person. I would not even attempt to see another doctor for the problem I see Dr. Rodosky for.
dr rodosky was personable and professional. this was first visit for my diagnosis and an mri was ordered and scheduled.
The staff were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I had an MRI and she squeezed me in so that I wouldnt have to wait too long.
Excellent experience with the care provider.
I am very pleased with this staff. I come from Erie.
It was a good experience. I was sure I would have to have surgery on my shoulder, but he just had to put a shot in my shoulder.
Dr. Rodosky and his office staff and his surgery staff were the best that I have dealt with.
A truly fantastic provider & skilled surgeon!
I thought I had an excellent experience with my care provider.
Dr. Rodosky was extremely efficient. He was able to schedule additional testing with little delay and to make a decision regarding recommended care promptly.
WAS MADE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE AND CARED FOR
Everyone was helpful and proffessional
Dr. Rodosky and Connie are the best. Have recommended Dr. Rodosky to at least a dozen people that I know who have rotator cuff problems.
I would have liked to have had Dr. Rodowsky spend some more time with me to further discuss the options for the future, but, I understand that he was running behind when I was there. He did nothing wrong, he was just hurried. He provided me with any further documentation I needed upon request and even took some extra time to explain it.
the experiences over the past years visiting andc seeing and talking with the doctor and staff have been very upbeat and very favorable and very responsive.
dr. was informative and caring had a good understanding of my problem and how he would address it
The thing that make upmc great is the over team effort, that is what makes your services great.great job by all
He was very good and was very knowlegable. I trust his judgement
Both the doctor and his PA made my wife and I feel very comfortable and took the time to clearly explain my condition and likely corrective actions.
Very knowledgeable about my problem.
My experience with Dr Rodosky and his staff was excellent
Dr. Rodosky has a very good team; Connie (PA) is a delight to work with.
Dr Rodosky's PA Connie and the entire team were wonderful. We got an appointment immediately and I want to emphasize that Dr Rodosky and the entire office waited till I got there so that I could be present for the appt. I was at work and was unable to leave immediately so our appointment was moved by me twice and they waited and accommodated us, something you don't see usually. I am so grateful that we have such wonderful healthcare providers that are not only great at what they do but also understand and accommodate working parents. My son even got his MRI the same day and Dr Rodosky called me at home later to discuss the results and what needed to be done.The entire experience was nothing but awesome. They made a stressful situation so easy. I would highly go back if needed and of course highly recommend Dr Rodosky and the entire facility and staff.
the Dr seemed generally concerned about my shoulder and bicep pain.
Dr. Rodosky is a brilliant doctor whose care I trust completely.
Excellent experience !
Dr Rodowski and Constance for over ten years. I would not trust any other with my shoulder-related issues. They are the best and I am grateful and thankful for their service and dedication.
I have always had excellent care with Dr. Rodosky and his staff.
he fixed my shoulder and i am very grateful
THE CARE FROM THE STAFF AND DOCTOR WERE EXCELLENT
My visit with Dr. Rodosky was surprisingly thorough and efficient. He was compassionate and clearly very good at what he does. His nurse/assistant was friendly and upbeat. I appreciate the positive environment they provided.
I had an excellent experience with Dr Rodosky, Connie & the entire staff. I will recommend Dr Rodosky to anyone who needs shoulder surgery. Great Job!!!!
excellent staff and physician
Wonderful and explained things in terms I could understand
I can only say the very best for my experience with my whole visit from the time entering the building to the time I left. The entire team treated me and my injury in the very best possible way. It is for these reasons that I travel from Erie, Pa to visit this office in Pittsburgh.
Very satisfied with care.
I had an urgent/emergent shoulder injury before a major international multi-day mountain bike race. And Sports Med not only got me in to see Dr. Rodosky, but the appointment could not have gone any better. I am truly thankful for his evaluation and expertise as he put my mind at ease going into this major race. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Amazing at returning phone calls and providing helpful information and advice!
I liked that my care wasn't fragmented. Everyone knew what I was having done and all other pertinent information.
excellent care nice organization very froendly
Always treated very well by Dr. Rodosky and his staff. Excellent team.
Very efficient, knowledgeable and on time with no waiting in exam room.
Excellent visit with the doctor. we had a very good conversation over the symptoms that I am experiencing (follow-up from my January 2015 shoulder surgery). I really appreciated him taking the additional time with me yesterday!
They are awesome
Excellent doctor and his nurse Love them
1st Class with a great attitude and concern!
Great effort was taken to see that I was comfortable. Dr. Rodosky was kind and considerate with me. The X-ray Tech was very friendly and knowledgeable.
I am very happy that I chose Dr. Rodosky for my rotator cuff surgery. He was very thorough in his review of the problem I was facing, and I'm confident that he performed the surgery expertly.
Dr Robosky and his staff are great. Everyone is really nice and they make a patient feel part of the team.
Both staff and Dr are very friendly and helpful they gave me the use of my arm back I'm extremely greatful
This office staff and doctors and the best we have ever experienced.
Excelllant response to my problem. Like a one stop shop. Very impressed with having all tests done on the spot in such a short period of time.
very nice and explained things
I would recommend this dr. To anyone.
I was impressed with the professionalism of this care provider and his knowledge. Our visit was brief but very informative for me. I felt like I was in good care with him and his staff. Great experience all the way around.
A good surgery.
I would not let any other orthopedic surgeon treat me. Dr. Rodosky is honest and upfront about plans of care. Wonderful MD
I wanted to specifically see this doctor because of past positive experience.
I received more assessment and answers in this one visit than three visits combined with a different provider.
Dr. Rodosky was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I have gone to him for all of my shoulder injuries, and have been very impressed and satisfied by his level of care. He is an excellent surgeon (he has performed surgery on my shoulder). I have nothing but great reviews about him to anyone who asks. I will continue to come to him in the future. Great person, great doctor.
Dr rodosky was very quick and had his staff relate all info to me as needed, his nurse Kathy was exceptionally helpful every time I called in for redikls, questions on my progress, and answers to all my questions the same day. I cannot say enough on how great these people are.
Brief and to the point
I saw Dr Rodosky for a painful shoulder. His office scheduled me for an xray and shoulder MRI just before my appointment to see him, because he knew my symptoms and that those imaging studies would be needed. I was then seen promptly after the imaging was completed. He examined me and took time to show me my imaging studies and advised physical therapy. He answered my questions and was kind and professional. Everyone at the sports center was very nice. I was very pleased.
I think that Dr. Rodosky is a very good doctor. I selected him based on referrals from others and I have been pleased to date.
EXCELLENT CARE FROM ALL INVOLVED, FROM DR. RODOSKY, THE X-RAY TECH, MIR TECH,AND THE NURSE.
Dr. Rodosky always provides me with excellent care as well as his PA, Connie, the nurse, Susan is also excellent with me as well. I would not go anywhere else.
I love this guy an his staff,they are great
I could see DR. Mark Rodowsky has an amazing talent and I have confidence and trust in him with the outcome of this surgery. Right rotator cuff.
Dr. Rodosky is a 1st class physician and someone you can rely on!
I waited for 6.5 years to get my bicep and rotator cuff repaired and as smooth as it went I should have had it done when it happened. my shoulder is excellent and no pain. it is like a miracle. also Dr. Connie has a gift for explaining what happened and what was done. Dr. Rodoski is a great surgeon with gifted hands. this experience was perfect.
Dr. Rodosky has been an amazing Dr. he gives nothing but good advice and made sure I understood everything he was about to do or has done. I would definitely recommend him to someone who needed the same services I needed. You don't find to many great physicians like Dr. Rodosky anymore, and I thank him for all he has done with my healing process!
I had an appointment with another doc in the clinic and when I arrived, requested to see Dr. Rodosky, who was kind enough to work me into his schedule.
I had excellent results in September of 2012 when I needed shoulder surgery. Now that I'm having trouble with my other shoulder, there was no question about who I would go to.
I have been treated by doctors in the Erie area for over a year. I did not get releaf. I was recommended by Dr. Lee to see Dr. Rodosky. So blessed. Dr.Rodosky knew what was wrong in my first visit. Treated me and I am so grateful. Thank you for all your help!
Not one bad experience. Everyone I came in contact with was courteous, friendly, and professional
Dr. Rodowsky and his entire staff are not just "very good," they are "exceptional!" I would not trust any other specialist to care for my specific injury or surgery. Connie makes the difference period. UPMC cannot have better representation with this specialist team.
Appreciate the professionalism of this doctor and his associates. UPMC Center for Sports Medicine is a wonderful facility.
excellent as usual at the sports complex
He was great to work with regarding my injury.
I was impressed with the overall service at the front desk of this facility and the dr and his staff, once inside his area.
I found Dr. Rodouky to be very professional and concerned with understanding my condition. He took time to ask me questions to understand my condition and how it is affecting me. He impressed me with his effort to be sure he understood my condition and review tests that were done to evaluate and identify my problem. He then offered treatments that would address ways to treat my condition, then discussed what he believed would be the most effective. Once I made a decision regarding the treatment I most preferred , he took time to explain all that was involved and what the eventual outcome could be. In all, I feel very confident in Dr. Rodosky with regard to his manner, sincere commitment to caring for me and provide the best approach to treatment.
courteous staff , Doctor was very thorough and helpful
dr Rodosky is the surgeon who handled my first shoulder surgery and now I know he will take good care of the other shoulder. he's very good and gives us time to understand his reasoning.
This was my first visit. I would've liked to have had more time to discuss the issues; I'm sure he's addressing the biggest ones, but I certainly don't want to have to have multiple surgeries if there are other tears or issues that should be resolved when I have the scheduled surgery in May. I appreciated him taking the time to explain the injection/aspiration approach for the calcium deposit, and referring me to someone skilled in that procedure.
dr rodosky is awesome
Calm, respectful, courteous and knolwedgable.
Can honestly say this was the best experience I have ever had at a doctors office the entire staff was awesome
I felt this care provider understood my needs immediately.
this is a very professional run office with exceptional staff
I thought the provider was working too quickly. I barely related any part of my recent experience regarding my shoulder. Perhaps the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder problems don't require listening carefully, but that's what I'm used to with the best providers.
I appreciated his care and urgency to get me the medical tests I needed immediately to help with the diagnosis.
Very good and friendly.
I have been to several physicians for my shoulder pain and Dr. Rodosky is the 1st one to take me seriously. He answered my questions and didn't act like I was an annoyance. It was the 1st time that I felt like I had an answer to almost a year of pain.
I was VERY impressed with Dr. Rodosky. He was highly recommended to me...and I now know why. I appreciate how thorough he was during my appointment. I also appreciate the time he took to "educate" me and not rush to surgery. I also appreciate his willingness to re-do images rather than rush into surgery. Even though his offices were a distance from where I live, it was well worth the time to meet with him. I have nothing but positive to report.
You people are the best doctors I have been to by far and I have been to many thank you so much.
I trust this doctor with my health care more than others that I have had in the past.
Mark Rodowsky operated on me in 2001 for a shoulder injury. The operation was a great success. I have had no issues with that shoulder since. I returned to the Doctor because of trouble with the other shoulder.
Dr Rodosky has previously performed two (2) surgeries for me with excellent results.
Dr Rodosky is one of the quietest Drs I have ever met, however he is very direct and does not waste anyoneâ??s times. I truly appreciate a Dr like him and his knowledge with my issues.
The care provided was excellent: very detailed and thorough in terms of evaluating my option and not trying to rush me into surgery for a shoulder problem that has been bothering me for a while. I was impressed by the time the doctor and the doctor doing his fellowship took to make me understand my condition and treatment options. PT advice was available right there, and the exercises recommended were explained in detail, right then. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Dr. Rodosky and the doctor doing his fellowship. I was very happy that I received this second opinion about surgery.
Dr. Rodosky is a man of few words but those words are filled with expertise and cutting edge knowledge. I was seen in a much timelier manner at this recent visit than in past years' visits. I feel like I'm in the best possible hands with him.
I had a great experience with Dr.Rodosky as well as Connie. They where always kind and answered all my questions. I have called the doctors office several times within the last 3 weeks Cathy was great help and polite. she answered all my questions and the doctor always called back in a timely manner. I will recommend this office to anyone needing this type of care.
I had my right rotator cuff done by Dr. Rodosky and was very pleased with his treatment
