Dr. Brand: I was highly impressed with Dr. Brand's knowledge, communication and professional bedside manner.

Dr. Brand was recommended to me by a medical professional not associated with his practice. She had used him for her own son. My rotator cuff surgery went well. I was highly impressed with Dr. Brand's knowledge, communication and professional bedside manner. I was also impressed by his staff and the surgical center.

Dr. Wolfson is THE best MD I have had in over 30 years!

Dr. Wolfson is THE best MD I have had in over 30 years! He is not only brilliant, but the easiest doctor to talk to and an amazing human being . I have had the trifecta of his specialties (shoulder, hip & knees), and he has been so great with finding solutions to all. He did a great job on the surgery of my fractured hip this past December. I just can’t say enough about him! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



Dr. Paul: thanks so much for your care, concern, and great beside manner.

I hope this letter finds you feeling well just as it leaves me.

First off Doc, I wanted to tell you that I'm feeling great. The back pain from my L-4, L-5 continues to be on a scale from 1-10, a 3! I now find myself realizing that after I get from point A to point B I don't think so much about my back pain. Like you advised me, I'm not pain free, I never expected to be, but I'm a heck of a lot better now than I have been in years. The pain I have now I can live with. Thanks for taking care of me.

Secondly Doc, I wanted to tell you that your staff at both offices are exceptional. Shannon is so pleasant to speak to, she was very accommodating every time I called. I'm sorry that I cannot refer your other staff members by name, they were all so professional, patient and kind. That kind of treatment you don't always find in the medical profession nowadays.

Again Doc, thanks so much for your care, concern, and great beside manner. I'm so happy to have found you and to have been under your care.



Dr. Paul, I want to thank you so much for the care you gave to my mom.

I can't believe we accomplished something so miraculous in the last year. I am not sure if you remember, but when mom fell ill with her back issue, I drove straight from Washington, DC, to advocate for her care, and continued to do so on a weekly basis until she came out of surgery. It was important to do this because I saw how mom's case slipped through the healthcare system. But when we came to your office, we felt respected and cared for. It made me feel like the work I do matters for our country.

I depart for my onward assignment with the US Government next Thursday. I'll be away for three years. I could not have taken on this assignment had mom not had surgery under your care. The work you did impact more than just one woman's life. It saved a whole family.

Thank you so much, Dr. Paul.



Every time I've gone to see Dr. Ciminiello, he showed professionalism and care. 

Both he and the PA, Peter, are the best! I just saw Peter yesterday and couldn't be happier. Like Dr. Ciminiello, Peter listens and cares about my care. I will never go anywhere else but OrthoConnecticut. Thank you!!



From my approach to the receptionist to walking out the door I was courteously and professionally treated.

Though I have a relationship with Dr. Mullen, he is thorough, professional, and concerned. I couldn't ask for better.



Dr. Lunt has been my doctor for hand problems for over a decade.

He is always available to take care of my new issues. I would never go to anyone else. I always recommend him to friends. He is caring, concerned and an excellent surgeon.



Outstanding explanation of my mid foot arthritis.

Dr. Guglielmo took the time to fully explain the treatment options! My husband and I were highly impressed with him.


Dr. Wolfson listened to my shoulder pain complaints, offered possible causes, and suggested non-surgical options first.

When surgery became the only option, he carefully explained the procedure and the recovery process. Post-op he coordinated the recovery with the physical therapist. I made steady progress to complete recovery with very little discomfort.

I am writing to bring to your attention the excellent experience I had recently with Dr. Theodore Wolfson.

My 99-year-old mother fell and badly broke her femur. Dr. Wolfson operated on her and I'm happy to report that, not even six weeks later, my mother is walking significant distances with no pain. Clearly, Dr. Wolfson's surgical expertise is second to none.

However, what truly impressed me about Dr. Wolfson was the way he treated ME. Of course, he called me and laid out all of our options, along with the possible short- and long-term consequences of surgery. But he then gave me his personal cell phone number and encouraged me to call or text with any questions.

My mother decided on surgery. Over the course of the day, Dr. Wolfson called me numerous times to provide updates regarding the receipt of needed surgical instrumentation, and the probable time surgery would be scheduled. During all of these conversations, I never felt rushed by Dr. Wolfson-quite to the contrary.

When I received a call from the hospital about midway through the surgery, I was concerned. However, it was a surgical nurse calling me at Dr. Wolfson's request to let me know that the surgery had started later than expected, everything was going according to plan, and Dr. Wolfson didn't want me to worry.

I was so pleasantly surprised to have a doctor care so deeply about not just his patient, but also the patient's family, that I felt you would want to know. I have had many, many experiences with doctors and hospitals over the years, and I have never been treated with such care and respect as I received from Dr. Wolfson. If he is the type of doctor being graduated from medical schools today, I'm thrilled!

Thank you so much for having such a phenomenal surgeon and individual on your staff!



After finding NO help at the Danbury Hospital (they didn't even take an X-ray of my osteoarthritic knee), I saw Dr. Dunleavy.

He was direct, professional, efficient, and intelligent. He put me at ease and he took an X-ray. I recommend him to all that need such a doctor.



Great facilities. The staff is great, every time I go in or call they give me their 100%.

Dr Dunleavy is very professional and very friendly. Yolanda at the front desk is so helpful.
