Dr Ian and his entire staff are wonderful. He told me when I resisted surgery he’d be my biggest advocate! My experience could not of been better.
Dr Wilkofsky was very sweet and kind. My younger daughter broke her wrist and he was very warm and helpful. He took a lot of time with us and walked us through everything. I would highly recommend him!!!
Dr. Wilkofsky is a superb physician. After seeing him I had a short period of relief. Went back again and he suggested a particular treatment and sent for approval from insurance. When approval was received I began the first of 4 injections over a period of 4 weeks. He knew what would help and took care of my problem in a short time. I will most certainly recommend him to anyone I know that needs an Orthopedic Surgeon.
I had a continued pain in my elbow and Dr. Wilkofsky helped the pain in 1 visit. He was very thorough and explained my condition. Thank you
[Dr. Wilkofsky is] very professional, easy to understand and gets to the point quickly.
