"I can't say enough great things about the care my daughter received from Dr. Gentile, and the entire staff at POA!  From the early morning call I made to their service on April 1st, the morning after my daughter was thrown from a horse and released from an emergency room near her college campus over 3 hours away, to seeing us the very same day, if to only make sure her sling fit properly and calm her crazed mom.  My daughter had a bad break and the emergency room doctor had been talking about emergency surgery.  Dr Gentile truly cares.  I can honestly say  he treated my daughter as he would treat his own family member.  Our 1st scheduled appointment was Monday April 4, 2016.  I had spoken with his scheduling secretary a few times by then, at length.  Upon our arrival she came downstairs from her office to say hello and meet us in person and see how my daughter was feeling.  Above and beyond is the only way to describe the actions of everyone involved in her care.  The attention paid to her injury, as well as our family's well being, as a whole, helped to comfort us. What was initially a very scary, traumatic situation, became manageable. I felt sure everything would be ok.  It's been over 10 weeks and my daughter is doing fantastic, thanks to the expert care she received." – Tracy D. 
"Hi Jason, I extend my thanks and appreciation to you for reaching out and discussing my shoulder problem with me. I know you are a busy guy and only know of me through Chris, but nevertheless you took the time to talk to me on three occasions without reservation. It is comforting to me that your interpretation of my shoulder situation is the same as the surgeon down here in Vero Beach. I have pretty much decided to go ahead with the reverse replacement. I know it's a big deal and I have anxiety about it but the thought of living the rest of my life as compromised as I am directs me on only one path. Again, thank you for your input. I look forward to meeting you next time I am in NJ."  - Fred S.

"I think Dr. Gesell is very professional, knowledgeable, and a caring physician. He takes time to explain options available and does not make you feel like he is in a hurry to move on to his next patient. The staff is very pleasant and efficient. My overall experience has been very good, and I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for an orthopaedic group." - Barbara E.
"Always treated well by staff and physicians. Not a place you want to go, however, if you need to go, there's no other orthopaedic group for our family." - Kathi E.
"I met Dr. Bade over15 years ago when he operated on my knee. I had previously gone for a first opinion to another orthopaedic doctor. When I explained that the other doctor wanted to realign my knee, Dr.  Bade strongly disagreed and said that I should not allow anyone to do that. He explained that the knee is like a traverse rod that runs smoothly. When you realign it, it will not run as smoothly as it should. I felt comfortable with the advise he gave me and he did my surgery soon after. Well, Dr. Bade was correct. It's been at least 15 or more years since then and I haven't had any problems since then. In recent years, I have gone to him for a hip problem and more recently, a shoulder problem. His careful examinations and correct diagnosis of my problems have been the key to my successful health outcome in each case. I have recommended Dr. Bade to many of my friends and coworkers in the Manalapan school system over the years and everyone has come back to thank me for recommending him. They all feel lucky to have found such a good and honest man as well as the best orthopaedic surgeon in our area. I might add that he never rushes you during his office visits. He takes as long as necessary to complete his diagnosis and he also takes the time to chat about life in general. I like that in a doctor. Most doctors today barely give you a chance to speak and rush you out the door. Dr. Bade is not that type of doctor. He is so respectful." - Annabella S.
"2 1/2 months after a multi-level, 4 vertebrae spinal fusion, I was swinging a golf club at 50% and playing golf. 5 months after surgery I was swinging 100% and playing two times a week. It has been 7 months since surgery and I am doing everything that a healthy 49 year old can do and then some. Thanks to Dr. Cohen. Life is good once again!" - Jaime C.  
"I have been a patient of Dr. Bade since 1985 when I suffered an injury to my scapula after being hit by a motor vehicle while riding my bicycle. Since that day, I have never looked to anyone but him for all my orthopaedic needs, and there have been many. Multiple knee injuries that he surgically repaired that have allowed me to continue with the type of physical work and sports that I engage in. I am currently under his care for a major shoulder injury, and I have to say that I always have and always will have trust and faith in what he recommends. I am confident that once again, he will put me back together again so I can get back to a normal, pain free life. His surgical skills are second to none and he truly cares about his patients – always taking the time to listen and addressing any and all concerns. He surrounded himself with an unbelievable staff that also makes you feel that someone really does care, and they always will go out of their way to help you with anything that you may need. Dr. Bade & Professional Orthopaedic Associates is and always will be my only choice for any orthopaedic needs." - George D.
"I have also treated with Dr. Gentile and Dr. Gesell. Not only are these doctors knowledgable they are all very caring doctors. If there was ever a question you always were able to discuss it with them. They were always available to discuss an issue or resolve a problem or just to give you a hug. They are not only doctors but all are very caring people which now a days is very rare. Thank you, Dr. Gentile, Dr. Cohen and Dr. Gesell for your help in treating me with my problems but also being there at some of my darkest times. Also I like to say thank you to the staff who are also professional caring and compassionate people but always returned your call or followed up with any questions. They are truly an asset to this facility. Thank you all for always making your patients feel kind they are human beings." – Mary F.
