Gregory Dairyko, MD

Philosophy of Care

I strive to provide excellent patient care with a focus in sports and activity related injuries. I believe each patient and associated injury is unique and requires an individualized treatment plan. My goal is to return patients to their pre-injury activity level by using current treatment methods including operative and non-operative techniques.

    Dr. Darikyko does a good job with explaining whats going on with you without using medical jargon, and he also give options instead of just one solution to solving the issue.

    Care provider themselves I would definitely recommend. The bad part about the care provider is the system they are in.

    "Good" rating only because one visit is hard to judge on confidence level or referring to others. However, the first visit was good enough to say I'm comfortable in continuing my care with him.

    I found him dismissive of my concerns & in a hurry to get to his next appointment. I did not get the reassurance or discussion I was hoping to have with my health professional.

    I cannot say enough about Dr. Dairyko--he saw how much pain I was and admitted me to a hospital right away.
