  • I highly recommend Brian L Puskas MD to everyone who needs a great orthopedic!! He has preformed extremely successful knee surgeries on my son in law and a grandson in addition to complicated ankle surgery on me. My physical therapist told me I have had amazing care. Brian truly cares about his patients as people and works with them to get the best possible outcome. He is a talented surgeon who takes his time and works hard to provide quality care. Our family has the utmost respect for Brian and his staff at NW Orthopedics.
  • Dr Puskas really listens and takes my desires into consideration when deciding best treatment. He is easy to talk to. The shoulder he repaired is my best joint. He also repaired my husband's knee which has had no issues since surgery. He is truly a joint specialist.
  • I saw Dr. Puskas for rotator cuff surgery. At 9 months post-op I am very pleased with my results and felt I received excellent care. He has an upbeat bedside manner, answers questions clearly and and felt very confident with his plan. My only critique is I wish I was given more info regarding what I could do at home to make life easier during first 2 months post-op
  • I was referred to Dr. Puskas by another surgeon that was not able to perform my surgery due to the complexity of my fracture and after only 1 appointment Dr. Puskas gave me the excellent news that he would be able to complete my surgery. Even though recovery is slow I can tell my arm is healing very well because he is a very knowledgeable and experienced Doctor. My overall treatment has been amazing and his staff is always friendly and willing to help.
  • Dr. Brian Puskas is a very thorough and caring doctor... His office staff and office environment are great and always friendly... I have shared my experience with family and friends ... Thank you all for All You Do ... You are Very Appreciated... I would highly recommend Orthopedics Northwest.
  • I don't recommend breaking a bone.. but if you do Dr Puskas will take care of you in an outstanding level.I had a closed trimalleolar ankle fracture And right now going through PT . He will listen to all your concerns, answer all your silly questions, and clarify anything you read on google with honesty, of course in a language you can understand what's going on,and what you should expect for your future regarding your injury. His supporting team is the perfect complement.Thank you so much!
  • Dr. Puskas and staff are the best. Caring individuals. Take their time during your appointment and listen to everything you say. Always a quick response to messages that are left on voicemail.
  • Very skilled surgeon who cares about his patients. He is supportive, creative, has great follow through and a great bedside manner. I would recommend him unconditionally to family and friends.
  • Dr Puskas did a very thorough exam of my knee and shared knowledge about my type of injury. I would highly recommend him and his clinic.
  • Dr. Puskas saw me short notice on a Monday in his office after hearing of a shoulder injury I sustained on Saturday and sat at home with for two days after being discharged from an ER. After reviewing my case and realizing how serious it was he cleared time to get me into surgery the next morning. While being transparent about my situation he was also very confident he could repair my shoulder. My experience with Dr. Puskas has been excellent so far and likely just beginning as the healing phase starts.
  • Dr. Puskas and his staff are very knowledgeable and kind and additionally, his staff are very compassionate. I’ve always felt safe and I believe Sr. Puskas has always wanted what’s best for me. The only reason I didn’t give five stars, is that sometimes I feel the doctor doesn’t always fully listen to what I’m saying and seems to already have the answer to his question. Being persistent, and after being his patient for many months, he now listens first and asks questions second
  • Very professional and personable. He analyzed x-rays and diagnosed osteoarthritis on my shoulder and administered a shot to relieve pain. I would highly recommend him for any shoulder problems.
  • I recently had a total shoulder replacement surgery with Dr. Puskas which went very well. I found Dr. Puskas to be very personable and I appreciated his perspectives when talking through options. From a patient care perspective I followed his guidance to the letter and things are progressing very well. I would return to Dr. Puskas for future work without hesitation.
  • Dr. Puskas and his staff are super professional and care about the patient. I had surgery, knew exactly what to expect, and am healing well!!
  • I felt listened to, not just rushed through to a treatment.
  • Dr. Puskas, he’s an awesome surgeon. I knew the moment that he looked at the infection that he was going to be able to take care of it. Did an outstanding job cleaning it up and getting me back on the road to recovery. Not something I wanted to do. But he made it easy on me. I cannot say enough about how his confidence in his abilities gave me confidence that I was in good hands.
  • Wonderful care and professionalism from Dr. Puskas and entire staff.
  • Dr. Puskas and his medical staff were very caring and friendly. I was a patient of his for about 6 months, I came to him after a bad experience with another surgeon. My goal was to hopefully avoid yet another surgery by allowing my body to heal itself. He did an excellent job of explaining to me how I could give my body the best chance of healing and coaching and encouraging me along that process. While under Dr. Puskas' care, I successfully quit smoking tobacco AND, I was not required to have another surgery. He is direct and down to earth, I trust and highly recommend him.
  • Love Dr Puskas! Great bedside manner. Actively listens, very thorough, and gives his honest opinion. Office staff are all very nice. Highly recommend him!
  • Dr. PUSKAS IS A KIND AND UNDERSTANDING HUMAN BEING I AM SO SO GLAD HE'S MY DR. I'VE NEVER BEEN TO ANY OTHER DR. THAT IS SO KIND AND LISTEN TO YOU LIKE HE DOES I HAVE BEEN HE'S PATIENT FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE I COME ACROSS.
    I HURT MY ARM BACK IN 2011 I'VE HAD 2 SURGERY WITH DR.PUSKAS AND UNFORTUNATELY NOT DUE TO ANYTHING HE HAS DONE BUT MY ARM IS BEING VERY STUBBORN SO HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO DO A REVERSE SHOULDER REPLACEMENT ON MARCH 12TH BUT I TRULY TRUST AND BELIEVE IN DR. PUSKAS IN MY EYES HE IS THE #1 ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON IN THE NORTHWEST
  • Dr. Puskas made me feel comfortable almost immediately explaining the procedure in a way that it was easily understood instilling a confidence I had come to the right surgeon.
  • I went to Dr Puskas after 2 previous surgeries on my left shoulder didn’t have good results. After consulting with other doctors, Dr Puskas gave me a clear and understandable path. He performed the surgery and after 2 years, my shoulder is strong and I’m back to normal activities. I have an unrelated procedure coming up that I would not trust any other surgeon with. He’s a nice guy that really cares and is able to clearly diagnose and provide an understandable course of action. I am fully satisfied and highly recommend Dr Puskas and Orthopedics NW for any orthopedic issues. Thank you Dr. Puskas!
  • Dr. Puskas has been great. He takes his time and explains everything clearly, which has been really helpful.
  • Dr Puskas and his staff are caring professionals. I would recommend them without reservation
