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!

Dr. Frank: Best Ortho in Connecticut!

Dr. Frank is hands down the best Ortho in Connecticut!

I am 33 and had to have my left and right shoulders repaired. I had my labrum and rotator cuff repaired on both shoulders. He did such a great job with the first operation that once I moved from the East Coast I flew all the way from the West Coast just to see him. He is very friendly, courteous, and to the point. He is very thorough in explaining your diagnosis, and he listens! Which is very rare in my experience with doctors. Although he is a surgeon… he is not surgery happy which is great. He believes that the physical therapy you receive is just as important as the surgery, and that surgery should be a last resort. I have recovered wonderfully thanks to Dr. Frank and his expertise.

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. Frank: I couldn’t be happier

Dr. Frank has performed surgery on both of my shoulders and I couldn’t be happier.

After chronic dislocations, I’ve been pain-free since surgery. He’s very straight-forward, always remembers your situation and gets my vote of confidence.

Dr. Fletcher: I recommend him fully without reservations

Doc Fletcher is the very best diagnostician I have ever come across in my 50 plus years in the sport of track and field.

I have witnessed this with both my athletes and myself personally (coach’s injuries!!) He was always spot on with the injury and his guidance helped the athlete return to competition without any set backs. I recommend him fully without reservations

Dr. Frank is the best.

He is a very compassionate doctor and very talented surgeon. I would recommend him highly and I have to many people.

Dr. Polifroni: Thank you for the great results


Dear Dr. Polifroni, thank you for the great results on my hip replacement!

My surgery was Monday afternoon and I was released by Thursday morning and back to work in 3 weeks. You have returned me to a life without the horrible, constant pain and I am grateful that I received such excellent care so close to home.

Dr. Kleeman: A fine job during surgery

20151015 091236

On December 17th I fell and broke my femur while playing pickle ball at the Norwalk Senior Center.

At Norwalk Hospital that night, Dr. Jay Kleeman operated on me and inserted a rod in my left leg. As a result of the fine job done during surgery as well as the support and encouragement he offered me during my rehabilitation, I was able to travel to Greece and on October 17th (10 months after surgery) I climbed to the top of the Acropolis. Thank you Dr. Kleeman!

We couldn’t be happier.

I went to several different doctors in Fairfield County before finding Dr. Robert Brady.

I feel SO lucky to have found him and am grateful he performed my recent spinal fusion. I know I was in the best of hands with my surgery. He is professional, compassionate, extremely skilled and smart. Dr Brady really communicates well so I understood my condition, my options, my surgery and my recovery needs. His medical assistant, PA and the rest of the staff at this office are always very kind and accommodating.

Dr. Fletcher: Immensely fortunate to have such an asset

As an elite athlete there are countless questions that I want answered when it comes to my body and how to get it back to 100%.

The husband (and coach) of an elite athlete, and an elite athlete himself, Dr. Fletcher has always handled my many injury scenarios with confidence, care, timeliness, and most importantly, accuracy. If you’re reading this, know that my words are bittersweet; bitter because distance now separates me from Dr. Fletcher’s incredible work, and sweet because I know you are immensely fortunate to have such an asset.
