After seeing several doctors and being told there was nothing wrong, I was referred to Dr. Woska. At my very first appointment, he knew immediately there was in fact a serious problem. Dr. Woska refused to look at results forwarded by any other doctors claiming that there were no abnormalities. While treating my severe pain, he sent me to several specialists, relentlessly searching for the cause of the previously unexplained swelling in my leg. He would not give up until we got to the bottom of the issue and thanks to his sharp instincts and dedication to both his craft and his patients, my quality of life was restored.
The end result was undergoing another surgery to correct a dangerous blockage. My iliac vein was 99% blocked for several inches, which could have resulted in the loss of my leg or worse. I am forever grateful to him for being such a caring and thorough doctor. Dr. Woska not only listened to my concerns and made me feel heard, he never gave up on me and I am grateful for that. I highly recommend him to all.
In 2014, I had thoracic spinal surgery. Though it was successful with respect to attending to my compromised spinal cord, I was left with Thoracic Discogenic Pain Syndrome. My pain was consistently 8/10 and it impacted on every dimension of my life and work. I researched and consulted physicians to help me manage my pain, but I was unable to find one that really listened to me or offered much more hope than what narcotic medications would offer.
A friend who also suffered from chronic pain referred me to Dr. Scott Woska. I immediately found him to be both professional and caring. He reviewed my MRI’s, reports, and complex medical history. He also inquired about my very personal perception of my pain and how it affected me. Ironically, I am a psychotherapist who frequently treats people with chronic pain, and I am very aware that pain is perceived by people in vastly different ways.
There is a mutual trust between me and Dr. Woska that feels like a partnership in healing. He approached my treatment like a well-orchestrated concert of procedures, medications and eventually with a recommendation to implant a spinal stimulator. My pain has been reduced significantly. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Woska for his tireless efforts to help me and for giving me back my quality of life.
Hi my name is Jessica and I have been a patient of Dr Rathi’s since 2016. He is an amazing
doctor, very caring and understanding. He has great bedside manor and listens to his patients. I
have had many procedures due to my injury and he explains exactly what he is going to be
doing and what is to be expected. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs an
orthopedic/ pain management doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr. Woska’s for nearly ten years. If it wasn’t for Dr. Woska suggesting that I try the RFA treatment I would probably still be walking around with severe pain in my hips. It is my personal opinion that Dr. Woska is one of the best pain management doctors in the area.
Thank you so very much Dr. Woska for keeping me pain free!
I’ve been a patient of Dr Woska for 15 years. I’ve had four prior back fusions and Without Dr Woska’s care I would not have any quality of life. Dr Woska and his staff are always willing to help in anyway they can. His care and practice goes above and beyond!
Dr. Rathi is caring and professional. He is always up to date on pain management procedures and advice to help me. Dr. Rathi ‘s assistant Sam is very helpful and quickly responds to me. I highly recommend Dr. Rathi.
I would like to thank you and your staff for the excellent care that you provided to me during a very difficult time in my life. When I came under your care, I was in tremendous pain and at risk of permanent nerve damage and losing function in my leg as a result of the severe acute fragmented disc herniation in my lower back. Your prompt diagnosis and superb surgical skills resulted in a complete resolution of my pain and restored complete function within weeks of the same-day procedure. Other doctors wanted to do a multi-level fusion that would have required hospitalization and a lengthy rehabilitation of at least a year to recover.
Within months of your procedure, I was back playing tennis, golf, and bike riding. I also sincerely appreciate the caring and compassionate treatment that you and your staff provided to me and my family. Your patients are lucky to have such a talented physician and patient advocate in their corner. All the best to you and your staff.
I would like everyone to know how talented you are and the services you provide are like no others. I have been a loyal patient for a number of years and highly regarded you and your talents as a physician.
Five stars across the board for yourself Linda and Donna.
