"This past February I started to develop pain in the back of my shoulder that just wouldn't go away. well, after several visits to the Chiropractor with no results and now numbness and pain setting in on my arm and fingers it was suggested that I might have a neck problem which was clearly evident in the MRI. I had a severe herniation of the disc between C6 and C7. After meeting with Dr. Cohen it became clear that the surgery was a real possibility to eliminate my chronic symptoms. we tried two epidural injections that unfortunately didn't work so surgery became the solution on July 15th. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. in the past, I've had a few minor orthopedic surgeries and never gave it a thought but when you're dealing with the spinal cord, neck and nerves, you start to think. Dr. Cohen took the time to explain the procedure in great detail with all the options available and after much consideration chose a procedure know as ACDF. I remember waking up in the recovery room after surgery completely pain free in my arm and hand with very little discomfort relating to the surgery. I was home within 24 hours and walking outside within a day, walking 4 miles per day within two weeks. I'm now going on my third week back to doing things I never thought would be possible so soon after surgery. I can thank Dr. Cohen and his staff for providing the best attention, care and treatment. It really made the difference and I will always be grateful to Dr. Cohen for his personal attention and outstanding bedside manner." – Jeffrey S. 
""First time, Dr. Foos. Ten years later, Dr. Foos again. Knee lasted a decade, pretty good I'd say." – Dwight R.
"Dear Dr. Gesell, I have been very pleased to work with Dr. Sheela Iyer during my physical therapy sessions in May and June. She is very knowledgeable and an amazing advocate. Further, she tailored my sessions to optimize my progress. I realize all the above represent her job responsibilities yet I felt she went above and beyond each session. I am so grateful I chose Professional Orthopaedics Physical Therapy during my recovery. Also, thank you very much for my successful hip replacement surgery as well as the at-home after-care associated with the VNA. My hip is pain-free and I am thrilled." - Mary Lee B.

"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.
