Dr. Brady: I Am Pain Free

I am 53 years old. I was nearly incapacitated with back pain.

Dr. Brady performed a double spinal fusion of my lumbar spine six years ago. I work full time as an emergency physician. I play lacrosse with guys 25 years younger. I coach high school wrestling and wrestle with 18 year old boys who weigh 50 lbs more than me. I am pain free thanks to Dr. Brady.

Dr. Deluca: Always very personable

I have been seeing Dr. Deluca for several years.

He diagnosed my damaged meniscus and performed knee surgery. He has attended to numerous sprains and such that come with my being a ski instructor. Always very personable and interested in how I am.

I am 67 years old and live in New Canaan.

I am thrilled to say that my knee surgery for a torn meniscus was a complete success. I am now pain free and think of Dr. Frank when I bound up stairs. I am skiing again.

Dr. Frank: Did a great job of repairing my elbow

In December I had a bad fall and broke my elbow. I’m so thankful Dr. Frank was my surgeon.

Not only did he do a great job of repairing my elbow but he was very supportive during the entire process. Anytime I had a question or concern he would get back to me right away. He also constantly stressed how important the physical therapy was and he was right.

Dr. Lynch: Knowledgeable

Great “bedside” manner. Knowledgeable.

Uses humor to relax patient very effectively. Dr. Lynch gave me a painless knee injection.

Dr. Fletcher: Has been my “go to” guy

Brianne 200x300

Being a professional athlete and pushing my body to it’s limit everyday, injuries are bound to happen.

Understanding the importance of responding to and addressing these issues and injuries, Dr. Fletcher has been my “go to” guy. He gets me into his office, diagnoses, and performs all tests necessary to get me back on the track as soon as possible. If it wasn’t for his extreme attention to detail and thorough nature, many of my setbacks would’ve had me on the sidelines for a lot longer.

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. 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. Frank: Confident That I Was in The Right Hands

After a fall, I needed shoulder surgery and Dr. Michael Lynch introduced me to Dr. Frank

After Dr. Frank assured me that my injury would not heal on its own, he proceeded to educate me on what I was facing. I felt very informed and confident that I was in the right hands. After surgery, there were many months of PT but I persevered and Dr. Frank kept track of my progress even though I was out of state. My shoulder is completely rehabilitated and I have full use of it due to his expertise and professionalism. Thanks Dr. Frank!

Dr. Soojian: I’d Recommend Dr. Soojian to Anyone Without Hesitation!

It has been twelve weeks since I first visited OrthoConnecticut, and I can confidently say that they did all the right things.

Today, the arm that I fractured feels little to no pain and continues to improve everyday. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, responsive, kind, and excellent at walking through medical specifics with patients. While I’m sure all the doctors onsite are excellent, I’d recommend Dr. Soojian to anyone without hesitation! Thanks so much for everything, OrthoConnecticut!
