    I really like the treatment by the nursing staff and Dr. James Jesko. They were and are always pleasant and helpful. If I am admitted to the hospital for an orthopedic injury I want Dr. Jesko to be my physician for this injury.

    I really like and trust Dr. Jesko. I like his down to earth approach with me and he listens to my concerns and objectives. I follow what he tells me and I will always listen to his suggestions for treating my condition. In fact I would like him to be my orthopedic surgeon if I am admitted into the Er.

    Doctor barely touched me or looked at my area of concern. He didn't seem interested  in the rather unusual way I got injured, which concerned me.  I had to hobble around for a month before he saw me again.

    I can't say enough "good" about Dr. Jesko...he remembered who I was...not just another "surgical patient"...he was genuinely interested in hearing why I was there to see him. After a through exam, he assured me that my right shoulder appeared to be normal one year after rotator cuff surgery and that he was pleased with my progress.  He then examined my left shoulder and gave me positive information as to what the minor pain and discomfort are being caused from. He asked that I return in a month to see how the Naproxin therapy is helping. I've always thought Dr. Jesko is friendly, courteous, concerned and through. I've recommended him and Covenant Orthopedic to several friends with shoulder problems.
