Hear From Our Patients

Excellent communication from doctor to patient. Felt very comfortable with the whole experience.
Dr. Zlotnicki is very good.
I HAD SHOULDER SURGERY AND ERIC JOHNSON DID MY SURGERY. HE IS THE BEST!!! I did great and would never go anywhere else!!!! My arm healed great and have had no problems. Love my doctor and the people that work there! I always tell others about CAROLINA ORTHOPAEDIC AND THE GREAT DOCTORS THERE.
Dr. Parikh is very sympathetic but professional (in telling me what is and is not possible or reasonable) with different treatment options. I have seen several other doctors at Carolina Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center and have always had a good experience and highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Zlotnicki is a caring and friendly doctor. He is a great listener and doesn’t waste a lot of time getting to the root of the problem.
