They are great. Excellent communication between staff and doctor. Doctor Favetto is gentle, he explained all my options, and discussed all possible side effects aka problems that might occur with the type of surgery we are considering. They are great.

Dr. Harrod and his staff exceeded my expectations. I always felt like I was in the best hands. Everyone in the office was pleasant and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Harrod for any foot surgery.

Dr. Vasicek explained every procedure and showed me my MRI so I could understand what was wrong and what she could do for me. I was really in pain and I needed someone to help me, she melted all my fears and took action. She checked on me often after surgery and I really felt that she understood. She really listened. Thanks to her, I am happy with my new Christmas Knee.

Had a new problem with my neck and after x-rays I was offered an injection in the problem area. Today I feel much better. Dr Lockstadt is very receptive to his patients.

Dr. Balthrop and his staff were simply outstanding! From my first visit to the time of my OUTPATIENT hip replacement yesterday everything was as professional as a well oiled machine, but also personalized. My assigned nurse called this morning to check on me. Almost no pain at all. It has been a day and a half and my main concern is not overdoing my movement, cause I feel like I could generally do anything I wanted to do. Thanks to Dr. Balthrop and his first rate staff!

I would have to rate Dr. O'Neill as excellent. Not only is he competent, but very knowledgable. He did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand in 2009 and I have had NO residual numbness.

He did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand in 2009 and I have had NO residual numbness. I started having pain in my thumb joints in November, 2015 and the pain remained constant. I saw Dr. O'Neill in May, 2016. He recommended injections and advised they may be painful. I had them in both thumbs and by the next day, I have no pain in my thumbs joints! I am extremely satisfied!
