    How was your appointment with Dr. Tischenko?

    Mar 24, 2020
    My experience with Dr. Tischenko was very positive. I went to see him about a knee injury, and he did an excellent job of using a model to explain how the knee is constructed, and then clearly explained the MRI results to me. I would definitely go to him again.
