"Highly recommend them! They were fantastic! When his body rejected the material, they were wonderful the second time around. For a non-pleasant experience, they made it as pleasant as it could be!

-Jeannette L.

"I called and after a very complicated phone directory (must listen and get right division of this huge practice) I saw
A. Krafczyk, M.D." and he was great! He put me through several movements and then reviewed the MRI and x/
they took (MRI was done through local hospital)---He told me I had a "slight" tear in my rotator cuff. (not torn completely) and suggested a cortisone shot and therapy. I asked him if the shot would help it heal or was only for pain. He said it would not affect the healing of the tear. I told him I didn't want the cortisone shot and he said, "That's fine" and told me that he wanted to go by my feelings on the recovery. They have their own physical therapy place in this building but I said I wanted to go to GOOD
after seeing all the lines for their areas and we have a location of Good
close to my home. HE said he was fine with that and no reason I had to go to their own facility. (This was a relief after the experience my husband had with an other surgeon years ago). After going to Good
for 6 weeks of training and rehabbing the muscle I returned to Dr Krafxqyk . He put me through several movements again measured me and read the report from Good
and said he was very satisfied with my healing and wanted me to continue to do some exercises for the near future to make sure the muscles around the tear would take over the work of that torn muscle. The doctor was friendly, made me feel comfortable and showed great respect for my wishes and opinions. I would go back to them in a heart-beat and recommend them to family!

Orthopedic doctors treat patients of all ages for injuries and conditions affecting the skeletal system, and associated muscles, joints and ligaments.

flat on his back on an icy sidewalk, motionless and unable to move his limbs. The life of the Angie’s List member in Mundelein, Ill., changed with a single, fateful slip during

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better? 

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.


It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.


Thanks again!

Orthopedic reviews in Anniston


I was able to get an appointment quickly with Dr. Spezia to deal with a recurring problem. The check-in at the main lobby was quick, using a touchscreen system, and they called me to the desk soon after to deal with insurance. I waited less than 15 minutes to see the doctor and he and his assistant were quick to answer questions.

Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
prescribed pain medication for my back pain. I explained that I am very concerned about whether the medication is habit forming. He said don't worry, it's not. He prescribed 40 pills and 2 refills. I looked up the medication, Tramadol, and one of the warnings is that it can be habit forming! He also did not seem very caring and did not treat me like my pain was important. I'm looking for a new orthopedic specialist now.
- Kathleen C.

This is a horribly run facility that is more like a cattle
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
house than a professional services provider. Dr.
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
kept me waiting for over 2 hours. I understand delays but I asked if there is a delay I can reschedule but was assured I was next. The facility is dated and absolutely not suited to people with mobility problems.
If you want to be treated like a cow in a

house this is the place to go. Pack them in and dispose of them as quickly as possible while maintaining maximum cash flow.
No other professional; lawyer, banker, CEO, would allow a customer to sit for 2 hours with no explanation. The only answer I got was they were sorry but it is always this way here.
- Phil T.

The injection was done with a fluoroscope which also produces significant amounts of radiation, but in the wrong area with no positive result. Waited for several painful months and got the injection while back in Minnesota with positive results and without the need for the use of a fluoroscope. I was also told that all tests and procedures used by these doctors were unnecessary. I will never go back to either of these doctors and will soon need another cortisone injection as the pain is beginning to return. Am now looking for another orthopedic doctor who can administer a

cortisone injection without all the hassle.
- Connie B.

If you are seeking a closed-minded, know-it-all and condescending doctor that won't spend his time listening and understanding then you have found the perfect doctor. This is a doctor that says yoga is pointless and harmful.
1 star for having in-house x-rays.
- Marc M.

I was a patient of
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
's, after I fractured my femur on 2/15/15. I wasn't happy with the fact that he wanted X-rays each time I went, even though I already had some that I brought from previously falling in the same month. X-rays aren't good for your DNA, and he got visibly frustrated with me when I brought it up.
- Kathleen K.

Since the provider made the appointment for me, I felt I had a good idea of where the office was located. Unfortunately though I pulled into 212 Asheville - a different Ortho clinic in the area- rather than 222 Asheville Ave. I was already running a few minutes late but this pushed me to arrive at
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Ortho approximately 10 minutes late. As soon as I walked in the door at
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Ortho, the receptionist loudly asked my name (anyone heard of HIPPA and privacy laws?) I got closer and told her my name. In the same booming voice asked "Mrs
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
, you do realize that your appointment was at 10:00 am this morning?". She continued "You will have to be worked back in but I have to consult the doctor first." She walked away from me, leaving me to feel the stares of the others in the waiting room who are now aware that I had committed a major offense... being 10 minutes late. The receptionist came back and said the doctor agreed and she would now have to 'work to fit me back in'. The
Anniston Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
of voice, and body language clearly communicated to me that this would mean lots of time, hours possibly, sitting in their waiting room until the chose to 'fit me in'. I replied to the receptionist not to bother that I was sure the clinic on the other side of the complex would be more than happy to take my money and hobbled back out to my car.
Being on time is important to me as it is a matter of respect in my mind. In situations like this though, I would expect much better customer service. If their policy is this strict on punctuality, it should be written on their website, on their door - everywhere. It is not okay to used public humiliation and passive-aggressive practices like making you wait extra time in the waiting room to punish offenders.
- Elizabeth H.

I wasn't interested with him either. When I went to him, I was under the impression that he would do the knee replacement. After he had me do everything that I did like the MRI, then he told me he didn't do this. The office people were great. They were always there. I didn't have to wait very long to see him. He didn't do anything for me.
