Patient Video Reviews

“Dr. Bade is a meticulous surgeon whose skills are hard to duplicate. Prior to my hand surgery his explanation of the process was so thorough and complete that he even pulled out a surgical textbook to show me illustrations of what he was going to do. I have thorough and total confidence in Dr. Bade. When the time comes for knee replacement I do not plan to consult any other surgeon. His widespread experience and calm demeanor helps in large measure to assuage patient fears. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

“Dear Dr. Torpey, I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for taking the time to help me with my chronic condition. I visited five different doctors in the past couple of years to no avail. My pain has been progressively increasing and I was becoming depressed, not very enthusiastic regarding my future. On your recommendation, I visited Dr. Kelly and he confirmed your diagnosis of a torn tendon along with a bone spur on my hip bone. I have a long road ahead of healing, however, I now am very hopeful for my future. I am so grateful I made the decision to come and see you!”

“I am very pleased to be writing you a second letter regarding another amazing experience at Monmouth Medical Center. Previously, in April 2016, Dr. Mark Gesell replaced my arthritic hip using robotic surgery and most recently replaced my arthritic knee similarly. Again, I had a stellar experience beginning with Pre-Admission testing (Beth, Suzanne, Doreen, Herb) leading me to the day of surgery. My first memories of post-op were spent with a caring and thoughtful Recovery Room Nurse, Joyce. She stayed with me beyond her shift and I was so grateful. Finally, my journey to the 6th floor Orthopedic Wing – what a team with an apparent committed effort focusing on me, the patient. I so appreciated the care from Nicole Wilps’ 6th floor team – Ben and Angela, my evening and daytime Nurses and Robin, the Physical Therapist. As I reflect, it appeared all was possible because of the constant articulation between the Medical Center team and Dr. Gesell’s Administrative Assistant, Amanda Aversa. She was the perfect patient advocate! I always knew I had chosen a most highly regarded surgeon, Dr. Mark Gesell, and now I also know I was privileged to spend my first healing days with my new knee at Monmouth Medical Center.”

“I would like to thank you for your special expertise, great kindness and alacrity that you gave to my “two knees” and their replacements!! My entire experience with this seeming debacle was one of trust and appreciative understanding of your prowess and empathy to my situation and I am very grateful. Also, your entire staff, especially Amanda, who was so willing and thoughtful to help in any way, was wonderful.”
