Dr. Protomastro: He did a terrific job

I would love to have this Doctor in Germany where I live.

Dr. Protomastro operated my son’s shoulder. I’m amazed by his Skills. He did a terrific job and I would recommend him highly to everyone. And I do like his Sense of Humor.

I Felt Confident in the Care that My Daughter Received

My daughter broke her arm last week at school. We were told to bring her to OrthoConnecticut in Norwalk by our pediatrician.

I want to thank everyone there for the for the tremendous care my daughter received. From the person that checked us in, to Greg Jenkins, to the x-ray technicians (sorry I don’t remember their names), and finally Dr. Soojian. Everyone was gentle and kind, and did their best to comfort my daughter (and wife) during this stressful time. Most of all I felt confident in the care that my daughter received, and was relieved that a specialist was on sight to lead her care.

Dr. Bast: He cares and he listens

I had a fever and was in a lot of pain when I saw Dr. Bast this past week.

He was very attentive to my needs; he took the time to think over the symptoms I described, and more than once took the time to be personable and friendly, making me feel at ease. He took x-rays, and then invited me to look at them with him while discussing my pain. He involved me in the diagnostic process and took my concerns seriously. He spent a great deal of focused time with me, which is why, I gather, his wait time is longer than average. I’m more than okay with this. He cares and he listens. I will certainly return to his care if need be.

I Will be Forever Grateful

I met the folks at OrthoConnecticut about 15 years ago when I had the misfortune of breaking my ankle in a sledding accident (no kidding).

It was Thanksgiving Day and luckily Dr. Paul Protomastro was on duty and fixed up a pretty complicated multiple fractured ankle—after a couple of months I was good as new.

I am now 59 and started to feel pain in my right knee while skiing. I went to OrthoConnecticut and met Dr. Michael Lynch who quickly diagnosed the issue as a loss of cartilage.

We started off with minimalist solutions like cortisone and synovatic fluid injections, icing and a highly specialized “unloader”kn‎ee brace. This went on for about four years. Later in the year, Dr. Lynch and I decided to give it one last ski season but if things did not improve, we would consider knee replacement.

In May, I had the right knee (replaced) and in September, the left knee.

During that process I had multiple check ins with Dr. Lynch to ask questions about my recovery. Three months after my second surgery I took a trip to Italy and Spain over Christmas and did a lot of walking with no significant issues. By the next January I was ready for the acid test: skiing. I skied for two days about 5 hours a day. No swelling-no pain. Since then, I have skied another six days and I am happy to say that I am back to a skiing form I had when I was in my twenties. While I am still in my first year, these surgeries have made my life a lot happier. For me giving up skiing was unthinkable and I am thrilled I did not have to. Whatever your situation, I can say that once you come out on the other side of TKR, it will be worth it-but you need to put in the time on therapy.

And most important—I have Dr. Michael Lynch to thank for this-I will be forever grateful for his skill and bedside manner. He was a real listener during the several years he was treating me and always was encouraging while being straight to the point. The staff at Norwalk Hospital was top notch as well.”

Everything after that was Fantastic!!

A little trouble finding a parking place, but Everything after that was Fantastic!!

Very busy in the waiting room but wait was not bad…Desk staff were ALL Very Nice!! Had last minute appointment with Dr. Soojian, He was very nice, remembered exactly what the problem with my hand was & gave me a virtually painless injection of cortisone. Ohhhhh hand much better!!!

Dr. Soojian: Excellent doctor

Excellent doctor. Had an issue with my wrist.

Dr. Soojian diagnosed it and took out the fluid, which fixed the problem. I had almost no waiting time. He has a great approach and manner to his work. Took his time to explain what caused the fluid build-up and to explain my options and was very patient with my (many) questions. I would definitely go to him again. He also checked back in with me later to make sure I was okay.


Dr. Lunt: A true professional

Dr. Lunt performed surgery on my left hand 20 years ago, and I never had any reason see him again because the surgery went so well.

But I recently saw Dr. Lunt for a different issue and he immediately remembered me despite a different last name and twenty years' time. He not only helped me with the new issue, he also took the time to examine my left hand to be sure everything was still okay.

The fact that he remembered me— and that I've had no issues with my hand for 20 years— is a testament to Dr Lunt and his true professional care. He has the best bedside manner and takes the time to truly explain everything in full detail. Dr. Lunt is an awesome surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone.



Dr. Brady: Was Tremendously Helpful

I had my spinal fusion done in June of 2008.

I feel extremely lucky to have been under the care of Dr. Brady. He did everything possible to make the surgery go smoothly, and was tremendously helpful during my recovery. Having scoliosis was one of the most stressful experiences of my life (I was diagnosed at 11) and I’m so grateful for the care that Dr. Brady provided to both myself and my parents.

Dr. DiGiovanni: First rate!

My experience was by far the best I have ever had with health care professionals.

From the assistants at the front desk, to the technicians, to the doctors (Dr. DiGiovanni in particular, whose masterful care I have had the privilege to receive), the quality of service is first rate. I almost never take the time to do reviews. The fact that I am writing this shows how strong my endorsement is for you.

Dr. Lynch & Dr. Brady: You Made My Dreams Reality

IMG 1906 1 218x300

Dear Dr. Lynch & Dr. Brady, I’ve been meaning to send you this note and picture.

This past November, I achieved a life-long goal of completing the NYC Marathon. The support from my friends and family got me 80% of the way but the last, crucial 20% were because of the two of you! Without having been in the hands of your expertise, my knees and back would have never survived. I’m beyond grateful everyday for doctors, specifically you both. You’ve made my dreams reality and allowed me to continue living the active life I love. Thank you for all that you do for me and everybody else. You leave a huge impact on all your patient’s lives.
