Patient Testimonial- ACL injury in young female soccer player.
Dr. Rios is very unique, in that he doesn't rush you off to surgery at the first assessment. He is careful, and conservativily thinks through the diagnosis and treatment plan before he makes a decision. He's doing everything he can to keep me out of surgery for a displaced clavicle fracture... I have total confidence in this doctor. I am an RN with 46 years of experience and feel that I am qualified to say that he is among the best!
Dr. Dugdale performed surgery for a torn meniscus on my left knee about two weeks ago. He did a professional and satisfying job in all ways possible. It was a surprise and a pleasure to find such a caring and down to earth medical professional in this age in which we live. His office staff was also very caring and a pleasure to deal therewith. It was "not all about the money".......it was about the patient first. Thank You to all involved. Sincerely, J. J. B Jr.
Dr. Rios performed my ACL reconstruction. He spends time with me to address any questions or concerns I may have. He is attentive and careing and always puts me at ease. My recovery so far has been execellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Rios to anyone who needs knee surgery.
I am so grateful to Dr. Memmo and his staff. I was looking at disability benefits due to the debilitating pain I was having. I Was not able to work. I had 3 epidural injections for an extruded disc. I am now back to working full time and am happy to have my life back. Thank you. - EFM
Dr. Rios was great at diagnosing the extent of what was wrong with my shoulder, where another doctor had failed. Surgery went well and I have the utmost respect & confidence in him.
My 30 year old son was in a car accident. He went from doctor to doctor and found no relief. Five months after the accident he was in so pain he couldn't walk and had to use a wheel chair. I called Dr. Becker’s office and told the staff (thru tears), the details of my sons condition. She had me bring him in two days later. He tried injections 3 times, physical therapy twice then had surgery. It's almost three years since the accident and because of Dr. Becker and his wonderful caring staff, he is 95% better and is living an active full life. I am an extremely grateful and thankful. There is no other orthopedic doctor I would recommend.
Everything happened exactly as expected. Diagnosis was accurate, surgery went well and followup was available whenever needed. I saw Dr. Rios for a second opinion. The difference was apparent right from the start Dr. Rios is through, skilled, careful and efficient. I'm confident I will be back on the golf course next spring with no ill effects.
I wish I had gone to Dr. Barnett sooner! Shoulder joint replacement and the following physical therapy can really change your life. I went from not being able to lift my arms higher than shoulder height and being in extreme pain before surgery to full 180 degree extension after and that's for both shoulders. Now one year later I can report I rarely even remember having had the surgery. I still do some of the exercises because I feel better for doing them. I have literally been pain free since they rolled me out of surgery. Dr. Barnett and his staff are talented and caring. I recommend using the physical therapy group associated with his office since they are familiar with his surgical style and they have a close working relationship. PT starts within 5 days of surgery. I refer everyone with shoulder issues without hesitation. Don't wait as I did...my surgeries were done 4 months apart. Less than one year after the first shoulder was done I was decorating for my daughter's home wedding on our family farm. Dr. Barnett gave me a whole lot of life back!
Dr. Waskowitz is the best ever! Very personal and gets the job done properly and gives many options . Very up to date with technique.
"I had knee surgery done by Dr. Zimmermann on May , 2015. The doctor & his staff were very good & made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Zimmermann & his great staff. "
Dr. Caputo is one of the best surgeons I've ever had.
Dr. Burns spent plenty of time with me, never felt rushed and was very pleasant, even a sense of humor during visit. Accurate diagnosis and treatment, no more knee pain! Thanks
Dr. Barnett has repaired both of my shoulders for rotator cuff tears and I highly recommend him. Excellent surgeon. It has been 13 months now since my total shoulder replacement surgery, all of the people involved in my care from Dr. Barnett's team...I Thank you, and I would not consider ever going to anyone else for shoulder problems. I'd give you 10 stars but there are only 5!
Dr. Fulkerson and team were wonderful! 1 year after surgery, couldn't ask for better results
Dr. Barnett is one of the beat doctors I have had. He is extremely knowledgeable, proficient, professional and personable. During my recent visit, he was able to diagnose my knee problem quickly, provide me with a complete and thorough explanation and advise me how to care for my knee to limit stress and pain.
Dr. Peter Barnett. In Feb 2013 I tripped and fell and broke my shoulder. Dr. Barnett's office got me in right away and got me through surgery to repair my shoulder, a procedure called ORIF, open reduction internal fixation. The doctor and the clinical staff are highly skilled and respected, along with the physical therapy staff who were always friendly & personable. They always explained everything to me and answered any questions I had. Kudos to Dr. Barnett, Cathy, Lisa, Kim and Loretta. As a team they worked with me to return my range of motion to 100%. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Dr. Codispoti is an outstanding physician.
Doctor Mark Shekhman he did a total hip replacement and I have never receive such great care during surgery and beyond I feel fantastic thanks to him and the treatment he prescribe before and after the surgery the man is the best!
I had a very positive experience with Dr. Lena and his staff. I was in and out within an hour. I was diagnosed and treated. My arthritic knees are feeling better. I highly recommend Dr. Lena and his staff.
I would refer anyone to Dr Nagarkatti. I've had both hips and now a knee replaced by him and would say, he's the best. Would never have gone back if I didn't believe in him and his staff. They are all the best. Thank you Dr Nagarkatti.
My experience with Dr. Benthien and his P.A. Morgan was wonderful. I truly believe that they truly care about there patients. Even now that I'm no longer under their care, I received a call to check on my progress. I would highly recommend Dr. Benthien
Dr. Burton is an absolutely astounding surgeon!!! had a very challenging injury.....given his medical expertise he was able to attempt to fix it.
Visits with and treatment by Dr. Barnett and his staff were refreshing indeed. Service and surgery was prompt, professional and, most importantly, totally successful as predicted. I had a full replacement of my right shoulder. Three months later, I have regained 80% of my full range of motion without pain and expect to regain 100% very soon. I am looking forward to the replacement of my left shoulder this summer. If you need shoulder surgery, I suggest you consider Dr. Barnett. I confidently recommend his services.
Dr. Christopher j. Lena Orthopedic, gave me back I would say, my right arm! I had Rotator Cuff and biceps surgery by him. I'm back enjoying my tennis and golf better than ever! Thank you so much Dr. Lena. Fabiola Bidwell
Awesome. With Dr. Memmo's help, I have my life back. He's thoughtful, And compassionate. Thank you.
Excellent care provided by Dr Memmo. Friendly, very professional and competent. He answered all my questions thoroughly, and explained the diagnosis and treatment plans for my lower back problem very well. i could not be more satisfied with my experience. Thank you Dr Memmo!
OAH has the best orthopedic surgeons in Connecticut very caring I'm glad I have them on my team !!!!
Dr. Burns always spends time with me and never makes me feel rushed. Another ortho told me I needed knee replacement surgery but Dr. Burns found and alternative treatment that has worked very well so far (3 months). I am taking much less pain medication and am not in constant pain for the first time in many years. I trust Dr. Burns completely and am glad I found him.
Dr. Fulkerson excellent surgeon. Very thorough. Takes time to explain everything. Obvious talented at what he does. Excellent for knee and shoulder issues.
Dr. Steven Schutzer is a pleasant doctor and very personable. Did not rush me and gave me very informative information about my surgery which turned out very good
I had knee ligament reconstruction and I could not be any happier with the results. I was recommended to Dr. Fulkerson. Prior to seeing him, at the age of 21, my right patella had dislocated 4 times. Dr. Fulkerson was extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring and took the time to talk to me about all of my options during my visit to him (where we took scans and performed physical activity tests). The end action that I decided upon was to have reconstructive surgery on my knee. Come surgery day, he and his staff were wonderful and even more so following. Dr. Fulkerson came and visited me to check in when I was in the recovery room and to tell me the surgery went very well. I thought that was a very genuine thoughtful gesture and appreciated that very much (was still very loopy at this time, but much appreciated). I was fully prepared for the recovery (Even though it wasn't pretty and I hope I never have to experience anything like that ag ain, I was thankful Dr. Fulkerson and his team informed me of all I would need to know post-surgery. He and his team made themselves available and when I went for my check ups throughout the year after surgery, I was greeted with a smile and genuine concern for how my recovery was going. Wonderful experience, I highly recommend Dr Fulkerson! My knee feels stronger each day and am thankful for Dr. Fulkerson helping me to find a solution to this problem and setting me on a new path that is now full of freedoms and no limitations anymore.
Dr. Linburg is a very good physician, though I have not utilized all his expertise in having a carpal tunnel procedure, I have had injections done to the sight that alleviated a great deal of pain and burn. Dr. Linburg was personable and very quick and good in what he did.
Dr. Waskowitz performed knee surgery after a recent quadriceps rupture. He has an excellent bedside manner and explained the injury and surgical procedure in layman's terms. The surgery was scheduled in an extremely timely manner and I am very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Waskowitz and his very friendly staff!
I had no problem getting a appt to see Dr. Kime and the staff was very helpful and kind.
Everything went exactly as I was told, excellent care and outcome. I have started referring everyone I know to Dr. Burns.
