|Dr. Michael Hulstyn Comments||Would Recommend|
|I've been a patient of Dr Hulstyn for the last 13 yearson my first visit to see him (for what appeared to be a complicated problem in my rt knee) he immediately diagnosed what 3 other dr's missed/couldn't see on the MRI and "squeezed" me in the next day for surgery. In the aftermath of those first two surgeries to fix my knee (lost 95% or so of my lateral meniscus after a repair failed to take), I received an honest estimate of when my knee would fail and what to do to prolong it for as much time as possible. When my left shoulder stopped working correctly (years after he successfully repaired a SLAP and Bankhart tear), he kept working to find the root cause and got me the best dr's to manage the problem (torn long thoracic nerve). He is the only doctor i will ever let touch my broken down and beat to hell knees and shoulder as his diagnostic and surgical skills are excellent. Great bed side manner, hell of a surgeon (even his students are good) and without hesitation I recommend people to him to anyone with a knee or shoulder problem. My experience with Dr Hulstyn has led me to recommend UniOrtho to people with issues outside his area of expertise. Hasn't gone wrong yet.||100%|

|I've been seeing Dr. H for years. I had to have surgery on my left knee and I was so scared but he did it and did a great job. He talked with me about everything from what he was going to do, to what care I needed and needed to do for my knee after. He's actually working on my right knee now with strength. He's the best!!||100%|

|Dr. Hulstyn is kind, clear, and has a good bedside manner. Unfortunately, I am still having issues with my knee after my arthroscopic surgery. Still inflamed and having a lot of pain/discomfort. I can walk, run, dance...no problem. Walking down the stairs is a bit painful. I still cannot sit on my knees. We are trying the cortisone shot, prednisone, and glucosamine chondroitin. If this does not work with a month, he will bring me back in for another MRI. Fingers crossed!!||100%|
|I'm so thankful I found Dr. Hulstyn. Otherwise, I'd still be out of work with the wrong diagnosis of a sprained knee by two other doctors ﴾from an other practice﴿ who didn't know what they were talking about. Because Dr. Hulstyn listens to his patients, the right treatment was given for a dislocated kneecap and meniscus, as well as a completely torn ACL. That's a big jump from a sprained knee, and needing surgery to correct the problem.. So Thank you Dr. Hulstyn, for being an amazing Dr.. Your the best.||100%|

Dr. Hulstyn spoke to me with consideration and respect as an intelligent woman. He listened to and answered my questions, looking at me in the eye while we spoke, his full attention on me. Equally impressive was his assistant, Michaela.
I had an 8:30 am xray appointment and waited 30 minutes to have the xrays taken at 9am. I had a 9am appointment with the doctor but didn't see him until 9:45am. I was very disappointed in the wait time especially being an early morning appointment.
|Dr Hulstyn is a wonderful doctor. Really is concerned about his patients health. One other point, his support staff is extraordinary. Everyone is so pleasant and nice. That is what makes University Orthopedics so good!Definitely recommend your practice!||100%|
|Having already met with two other Orthopaedic Surgeons Dr. Hulstyn stands apart in a positive light above and beyond the others. We even went to Boston Children’s Hospital for our second opinion. Dr. Hulstyn was our third opinion and by far the most knowledgeable, patient and truly kind and caring. My son actually said that Dr. Hulstyn seemed like he cared the most while some of the other Physicans seemed either preoccupied or not as compassionate.||100%|
