Dr. Southern: Thank you for many things

One, for being an amazing doctor and doing everything you could to give me back my life. You never gave up on helping me.

Today, I stand strong and have the rest of my life to look forward to. The spinal cord stimulation by far has improved my life and has gotten me back to doing things I had stopped doing because of my pain.

The second thing I want to thank you for has to do with you taking time to come to court for me. Unfortunately, the jury did not put much value on my injury. It's sad, but the truth is I am stronger now having gone through all this. Thank you for all your support and most of all for being an amazing doctor!

My best to you always,

Lisa Coallik


Dr. Southern: The most capable care

I'm feeling just great this week!

The prescriptions you arrived at are just what I needed, even at the minimum dosages as discussed. Last week was a straight-up misery, and I understand your need for approaching my problem with caution. I'm sleeping great and feeling strong, working up to my best, activity level better than I would have expected — almost pain-free.

You are very patient and thorough, and I feel I'm in the best and most capable care with you and your office of professionals. Thank you for the relief I'm getting. I'm healing up just fine, and I couldn't be happier.

Dr. Ciminiello: From start to-finish, nothing short of perfect

The purpose of my letter is to let you know what a fantastic experience I have had with the office of Dr. Angelo Ciminiello. From start to-finish, the experience has been nothing short of perfect.

I contacted the office in May, regarding my shoulder pain. I was greeted by a friendly receptionist who followed up with me over the subsequent weeks. Dr. Ciminiello was able to examine me in a very reasonable period of time, where he assured me they would do everything they could to get me healthy and avoid surgery. Over the following weeks I participated in physical therapy, where the staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We tried therapy, a cortisone shot, but my shoulder was too far gone without surgery. I was fully prepared for any complications I might experience and scheduled for surgery July 22nd. The surgical staff was so professional, courteous, and reassuring, I was barely able to get nervous before I woke up in the recovery room. I realize that I am extremely lucky, but I have experienced next to no pain since the procedure. I was out of the sling and driving in very little time and the office staff was astounded at my recovery. I would like to tell you it is my superhuman powers, but I cannot believe it did not have something to do with the doctors and staff.

Since the surgery, I have continued to work with Ashley Gabriel in physical therapy, who is absolutely top notch. She knows and explains exactly what we are doing coinciding why and how it affects my rehab.

In closing, I cannot thank your staff enough for the job they have done for me. I have told and will continue to tell people of my experience.

Yours Truly,

Travis P.


Dr. Southern: I am beyond grateful

...I am beyond grateful for all you have done for me as my physician, and the highly dedicated level of care I've received over the last 2 1/2 years as your patient.  Thank you!



Dr. Ciminiello: Thanking you for 12 months of care

It's with great pleasure that I write to you thanking you for all you have done in the past 12 months for me. 

My knee surgery from a year ago was flawless and feels great.  My most recent shoulder surgery was essentially pain free, the rehab you prescribed is going great, and I have a full range of motion and much of my strength back just 10 days later.  I couldn't be more pleased with the totality of your care and your affable and caring demeanor.  Thanks so much.

Dr. Ciminiello: Three-month torn meniscus surgery update

I can't tell you how thankful I am and how happy I am that I was able to recover so quickly and to be honest, I feel like I came back stronger than I was before.

I just wanted to let you know where I am roughly 3 months after surgery on the torn meniscus. So for our lifting testing in late September, I was able to squat 325 for 4 without any pain, dead lifted 315 for 6 without any pain, hang cleaned 215, ran a 6.7 60 yard dash with no pain, played a whole fall season with sliding, diving, changing direction, hitting, and crow hop and throwing without any pain. I have full range of motion and can do the act of sliding, which hurt me in the first place, with minimal effort and pain. And I'm pretty sure I can dunk now too.

Thought you'd appreciate the update and also to know you had another successful surgery.

Many thanks,

Mike D.


Dr. Southern: A note to say "thank you"

Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help in managing my pain. 

The new medicine seems to be working!  I'm so happy that I can now do things I haven't been able to do for ages...

I truly appreciate both your and Jennifer's assistance throughout this process.  I now feel that there is hope and that better days are ahead!  Once again, thanks for all you do to help those of us who suffer with chronic pain.



Dr. Ciminiello: Thank you for a job well

You probably get this a lot but I had to let you know that my sister, niece, and I were most impressed and appreciative of your consideration and patience today.

Since my mother began to have a series of medical issues two years ago, we have had experience with a many physicians in different specialties. Most of them seemed more interested in how fast they could get in and out of the room rather than spending a few minutes to truly care and understand the issues with my mother.

Your bedside manner was like a breath of fresh air. I only regret that we did not get to spend more time together. I would have enjoyed conversing with you on other than medical topics. I wish you well in your career and hope you know I meant no disrespect in referring to you as “Ang” and “Angelo,” in fact it was just the opposite. Your compassion and skill in dealing with our concerns and questions made me feel so comfortable that I felt like I was on a friendly and personal basis with you. It seemed only natural to refer to you as I would a friend.

Again thank you for your service and consideration today. My family and I wish you all of the success in your career that you deserve.
