“To the Staff at POA, Professional Orthopaedics is, indeed, professional. All the way. 200% My journey of gratitude must begin with Roz Smith who was the first to listen and act on my agonizing complaints of excruciating pain. Thank you, Roz, for providing me with the immediate appointment that saved me from undergoing an extensive repair surgery. Next to Dr. Gabisan to whom I will forever by indebted. Thank you for your excellent expertise and for being so immediately attentive to the misdiagnosis I received at the hospital. Your compassionate, caring and unbelievable bedside manner is what I so proudly boast about whenever the opportunity arises. I can sing your praises forever and that will not be enough!! You never rush and you treat all of your patients with the utmost respect and dignity. My God Bless you 100 fold. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Christopher Johnson for his excellence in diagnosing two previous hand injuries. Your conservative approach and attentiveness will forever be appreciated. Next, a very special thank you to the physical therapy staff. Stephanie and Maria you are both amazing. Thank you so much for being so accommodating with all the scheduling issues. You are always so compassionate and kind. To Ila Fortuna, thank you for your unending patience in giving me back the use of my hands when I was not even able to tear open a packet of Splenda. Your calming and caring demeanor is what got me through so many difficult and frustrating days when I could barely hold a coffee cup or tear a check out of my checkbook! You are a loving and caring to your patients and I never stop singing your praises as well. God Bless you, Ila. And to physical therapists Cynthia Massagli and Sheela Iyer, what can I say other than I remain forever indebted for your fine expertise, unending patience and compassion. Thank you for teaching me how to walk and be mobile again after two months of being housebound. Thank you for the constant encouragement which has been crucial to my recovery. What a joy to be free finally of the scooter, walker, boo, etc. To the wonderful people at the front desk, the x-ray techs, the billing staff and everyone at POA…my deepest and most sincere thanks! Your office will forever be the choice of my family and friends who all share the same sentiments as I do. With sincere warmest regards.”

“Dear Dr. Torpey, Sept. 21 was my one year anniversary since I had a major shoulder rotator cuff surgery. I just want to thank you for being an amazing doctor! Now, a year later, at age 41, weight 162 pounds, I’m back to crossfit and Jiu Jitsu. I couldn’t be happier with my results and I keep getting stronger and training harder than yesterday!! ”

“Dr. Gentile was very informative regarding the injury. He was genuinely caring and concerned about Mario's injury to his wrist. We did not feel rushed through the appointment, and Dr. Gentile explained in detail the injury, treatment, and recovery time. His staff called several times to make sure all was ok, and we were on the right path to recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Gentile and his team to others. It has been a pleasure and a relief to know we can count on Dr. Gentile in time of need.”
