Dr. Fletcher: I Rate OrthoConnecticut One of the Best

Back in December, Dr. Fletcher repaired my torn meniscus and I was extremely happy with the results and how he explained the procedure and recovery process.

He set me up with physical therapy and I did great. Unfortunately, I tore my right knee meniscus and had surgery yesterday. I went back to OrthoConnecticut because the quality of care including Dr. Fletcher, his nurse and Sarah who scheduled the procedure. All done in a professional manner. I dealt with many doctors because I worked in a law firm who handled personal injury matters and I rate OrthoConnecticut one of the best. Thank you!

 
 

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.

Dr. Soojian: He took his time to explain my problem

Phenomenal Doctor! Dr. Soojian was very knowledgeable, professional and caring.

He took his time to explain what my problem was (turns out I have a trigger finger) what I could do to treat it, ultimately what he suggested, and what I should expect down the road. We went with a cortisone shot, which in my experience is not pleasant, but it was actually quick and near painless! I would definitely recommend seeing Dr. Soojian for any hand issue you may have.

Dr. Frank & Dr. Lynch: Helped Our Family So Much!

The Doctors do the surgery..but it is the people like Donna, Sarah, Michele and the people at the front desk that make OrthoConnecticut work.

I would like to share my story which I hope you will pass on to Dr. Lynch, Dr. Frank and the others in the practice.

Dr. Frank, who happens to be from Philadelphia Eagles fan (I am from Pittsburgh, and a Steelers fan) drained my knee…but suggested that at some point I might need replacement surgery.

Fast forward…I did need knee replacement surgery and as my friend had used Dr. Lynch…it was to Dr. Lynch that I went to see.

Prior to my surgery Sarah was on the desk and I told her I was absolutely petrified about having surgery!..Sarah assured me things would be fine and gave me a card with her name and told me to call her if I needed any help.

Things did go well and I thank Dr. Lynch for his fine care. I recommend OrthoConnecticut to everyone I know and I also tell them about the nice people like Sarah that are the real faces of OrthoConnecticut.

Dr. Frank: I Am Pain Free and Have Full Range of Motion

On December 7, Dr. Frank repaired my rotor cuff, bicep tendon, and torn labrum.

Prior to surgery Dr. Frank walked me thru (in detail) the surgical procedure, what I could expect after surgery, including post surgical pain, and my rehab plan. Surgery went well and pain levels were well managed. Five months after surgery I am pain free and have full range of motion and my strength back. Dr. Frank is a skilled surgeon and a very caring person. Anybody who needs shoulder surgery I would highly recommend Dr.Frank. Thanks Dr. Frank for all you did for me.

Dr. Frank: I Couldn’t Be Happier

I’m 71, and had serious tears in both my rotator cuff and bicep.

Dr. Frank did a thorough, highly professional and successful surgery. Now I’m told that recovery of my mobility and strength are much better than the typical patient, and I’m pretty much 100%. I couldn’t be happier.

Dr. Ciminiello: Changed my life for the better

I just wanted to say thank you for drastically improving my daily life.

As you know, I was a competitive Tennis Player in my early 20’s and after 4 shoulder surgeries I decided to hang up the racket. Over the past 20+ years I have been living in pain and not able to do sports activities that required my shoulder function. Fast forward 23 years and after you performed my Rotator Cuff Surgery, I am back, fully functional and actually playing tennis again! More importantly I am, for the 1st time, able to throw the baseball with my kids. This is the best gift anyone can receive.

The quality of the entire experience with you and your team has truly changed my life for the better. I just wanted to say “Thank You!”

Regards,

Mark Sonders
