Dr. Jacqueline Mlsna is a board-certified orthopedic surgeons specializing on sports medicine, fracture care and joint replacement.
“Patients deserve the personal attention of their physician who should partner with them in forming a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan. Many orthopedic surgeons in this community have abandoned the traditional doctor/patient relationship, choosing to provide only the most technical aspects of their patients’ care. Most of the evaluation, examination and consultation is provided by an assistant with considerably less training and experience. In this model of care, surgeons do not see their patients in the hospital after surgery, nor do they provide personal aftercare in the office. I believe, on the other hand, that the doctor/patient relationship is crucial to a patient’s care. In my view, personal interaction between a physician and patient provides the best opportunity for proper diagnosis and treatment, along with the best opportunity for a good outcome.
Every patient deserves and should expect nothing less.”
