Patient Video Reviews

“After several months of living with pain. After seeing a chiropractor, having physical therapy, and trying acupuncture, nothing was helping. I sought care from Dr. Cohen. I couldn't look up, down, or to the side. After MRI, Dr. Cohen determined I had three herniated discs, and I could try epidural shots, but that would only be a temporary band-aid. He recommended that I needed surgery to repair three discs in my neck. He would insert a plate and screws. He took the time along with Adrienne his nurse (which seems to be his right-hand person) to explain in detail what I would experience before, during, and after surgery. Dr. Cohen explained to my husband after surgery that he couldn't believe how much pain I was tolerating. I was bone on bone. After surgery, it was a rough week; each day got better. I'm here one year later, pain-free, complete range of motion, working out five times a week and feel great. I owe all of it to Dr. Cohen. I feel like he saved me.”

“Dr. Gesell replaced my right hip in August; surgery went as he described it, and I've had no complications thus far. I experienced minimal pain, it was more a feeling of discomfort as I learned how to move around during the first few days after the surgery. My mobility has improved significantly each day since surgery. I would recommend Dr Gesell to anyone who is considering joint replacement.”
– John C.
“Dr. Gesell is amazing. So competent and professional. He did a total knee replacement for me, and it went flawlessly. And he was very patient and explained everything thoroughly in our follow up visits. His expertise transformed my life from being almost crippled to walking 4 miles a day again only six weeks after surgery.”

“I want to thank you for the services you gave me for my shoulder. It is with your help that I can do almost anything and don't have much pain at all. I will recommend you if ever my friends or family needs an orthopedist. Thank you again. Forever grateful.”

“Dr. Gesell was great. He thoroughly explained the problem I had with my broken hip and covered the options for my recovery. The surgery went well, and I was up and about in no time. I was back on my bicycle within three weeks of feeling beautiful.”
– Carl H.
“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Cohen, Adrienne, and the whole staff. I walked in there the first time terrified and in a lot of pain. Dr. Cohen diagnosed my problem and explained why I needed neck surgery. He and Adrienne answered all my questions. The results after the operation were excellent and the follow-up care was great as well. I have been pain-free ever since.”
– Michele C.
“My right shoulder was becoming a problem because of arthritis. Pain, loss of mobility and I couldn't sleep on it at night. We tried several shots, but they didn't last. Dr. Saleh showed me my X-Rays and the MRI. I even had a hole in the bone. We discussed a replacement, both regular and reverse and I took out a piece of paper and made two columns and wrote down the pluses and minuses of both. Dr. Saleh made a recommendation, but let me make the final decision which way I wanted to go. The staff, nurses, etc. at Monmouth Medical were terrific. I was a little apprehensive about going there, but they gave me the best care. This summer marked my one-year anniversary, and I am out of pain and can do 98% of everything before I had the reverse replacement. Thank you, Dr. Saleh, for giving me back the normal use of my shoulder.”

“Dr. Gentile was very accommodating by listening and fully explaining everything concerning my issue. On the day of surgery, he took the time to tell again and came back after surgery to let me know how it went. He was very reassuring, and I felt very calm throughout.”
– Jacqueline F.
