"I was having sharp pain in my left shoulder. I had a MRI and x-ray done to indicate tendon/muscle damage. Dr. Foos assures that surgery was unnecessary. He answered every question I had BEFORE I ASKED IT!!! Excelled experience." -- Clem S.

Dear Dr. Foos and Staff, I just wanted to thank you all for being so wonderful to me before, during and after my recent surgery to repair the cartilage in my knee. I was so anxious and you all made it an almost pleasant experience! You must be an awesome boss to have so many truly happy employees. ~ Tracy M. West Allenhurst

Dear Dr. Foos, Here I am with two knees, and I want to thank you for giving me back my life. When I first came to see you, I was in so much pain. Today I feel like a new person and I am finally pain-free.

Through it all, you always explained things so that I knew what would happen as well as how and why. You patiently and thoughtfully answered all my questions, even those some might consider silly (zumba and zip lines).

You have an incredible staff. They have always been so nice to me. Your assistant, Jennifer, is amazing. She has traveled this journey with me, answering every phone call, every question, every fear I had, always so professional and compassionate. Then there's Laurie, the first person I would see at the reception desk; Colleen, Anthony, and John, who would bring me back to one of the exam rooms or take me for x-rays; Clarinda, who I would see on my way out and make my next appointment; Justine, who gave me those reminder calls. And then, physical therapy -- Tracy is the first person I spoke with at POA PT, and she was so kind and caring; Sheela is an incredible physical therapist and did wonders.

And then there is you, Dr. Foos. Thanks to your great surgical skills and knowledge and compassion, you have brought me through this journey. I never thought I would be able to walk and run without pain again, but here I am. THANK YOU! ~ Sincerely, Doris F.

"Dear Dr. Foos, You performed a miracle with my knee  I feel great! Thank you for a successful surgery and for always being willing to answer questions and explain things."
~ Doris F.
PS: Thank you also to your wonderful team, especially Jennifer, who always returns my calls and is patient with me, and to the rest of your professional and wonderful staff. Thank you!

"As an avid racquetball player, I have had many injuries over the years. I just can't say enough about Dr. Foos. Dr. Foos has successfully operated on me four times for bones spurs in my elbow and shoulder and also a knee arthroscopy. The staff was phenomenal and the surgery-center was just fantastic. They combined to make each experience very easy. I look forward to many more years on the racquetball court!"
~ M. DelCollo in Colts Neck NJ

"I used to be active athlete who enjoyed all sports! Basketball, tennis, skiing, snow boarding, & martial arts. I had a full torn acl injury ten years ago and had seen quite few doctors over the years in New York and New Jersey. I never felt comfortable so never committed to the surgery. Most practices felt cold and uncaring (akin to a production line). At the recommendation of a friend I went to see Dr. Foos and from the minute I entered the office my experience was second to none. Dr. Foos provided unrushed quality time educating me on my injury and objective choice of options (the previous surgeons didn't really give any). As I expected the surgery went off without a hitch and his follow up was just as good as the first visit. The same quality time was made post-op which was instrumental in my full recovery. Just want to say thanks to Dr. Foos and the Professional Ortho staff for their commitment to quality care and personal service!!"

Dear Dr. Foos and Jennifer,

Thank you for your kindness, support, and patience (for my multitude of questions) over the past few months.

With appreciation,

Tony Gardella

"I am so very grateful for my two new knees!! Dr. Foos has given me back my life! It had been years since I was able to exercise the way I wanted to. Now I can walk, bike, do Zumba, and enjoy moving to the music the way I used to. Swimming is still great, but I no longer have to rely on the pool for my only form of exercise. My volunteer work at the Bronx Zoo is no longer painful. There's such a lot of ground to cover, but now I'm happy to be there. This doesn't even cover playing with my grandchildren! It's amazing how much we take for granted, and how we can get used to losing it. It's easy to forget what you loved to do, but it's wonderful to rediscover them again. The care I received was wonderful. Physical therapy took several months, but following "orders" and hard work were definitely worth it. I am thankful every day." -- Susan G.

"Dr. Foos has been an absolute caring physician since my knee surgery. He takes his time with explaining the procedure, post-op, and office visits. I am very pleased with his services, and have referred several of my friends to him. They were completely satisfied as I was." -- Lorraine W.

"I suffered with knee pain for quite a long time before being referred to Dr. Foos. He spoke to me, had me have x-rays and a MRI. He found that I had a torn meniscus in my left knee. I had never had surgery before and was nervous to fix my knee. Dr. Foos performed an arthroscopic procedure. Since he helped me, I have not had any pain in my knee at all. He advised me that my right knee also needed the same treatment. The x-rays had shown a slight slanting of both my kneecaps. Two years after my first procedure, he did the same procedure to my right knee. I am grateful for Dr. Foos and all the staff in that office. They were nothing but kind, happy, and reassuring. It was such a great experience that I recommend this practice constantly. I only wish other doctor visits for other reasons were as pleasant. After rehab (with Sheila) within the same practice, I have full range of motion in both my knees. I am one happy and content patient. I work two jobs and I am a single mom, and I thank God for you all for making me better so I can work.  Thank you." -- Maria P.
