The reviews listed below were collected independently of First State Orthopaedics through rater8. Each review represents an authentic and verified patient experience.

My visit was because of a trigger finger and pain and stiffness in my shoulder. The shoulder issue had gotten better since making the appointment. However; I was concerned about the spasm in my right shoulder and twitching of my right thumb. When I asked Dr. Sowa about it. He said it is "coming from the brain"; which is true but when something wrong is happening the brain receives a message. What I wanted to know if there was any kind of impingement that could have been causing my symptoms; which he never adequately explained. Saying that I was getting signal from the brain did not give me an adequate explanation or clarification of my symptoms; which had abated by the time I saw Dr. Sowa. He injected my finger, but decided not to inject my shoulder because the symptoms had subsided. As he was walking out of the room I asked him what was he going to do about the shoulder. It was at that time he decided to do an x-ray. I had to be my own advocate

I'm very thankful for Dr. Sowa. He performed my hand surgery, and it was a great experience from start to finish. He doesn't mess around, which could seem like your appointments go very "quickly", but he listens to your concerns and addresses your issues without making you spend excessive time in the office. The surgery experience was seamless and extremely professional, as well as the office's assistance with any documents I needed for work. I definitely recommend Dr. Sowa.
