“My experience with Dr. GENTILE was the comforting feeling of being safe and in capable hands from October until I was discharged today. It has been a long feeling helpless journey. He prescribed physical therapy right after the injury which felt very hard at first but gradually I could feel myself able to do more. Surgery was performed in December and shortly afterwards I resumed my therapy with the strength that I had maintained before surgery. After 8 months since the injury, hard work and excellent medical support, I am better than I was before. In the beginning, I never thought this was possible. Thank you, Dr. Gentile for all of your time listening and successful challenging surgery.”
“Had a broken bone in my arm for a month. Had seen another doctor who said it was arthritis. Dr. Bade scheduled surgery within two days. His gentle approach and kindness to me was very much appreciated . It was wonderful to have a professional with such sensitivity perform the surgery. His follow-up assured me that my arm and shoulder would return to normal. In my opinion Dr. Bade rates the highest grade.”
“Had a total shoulder replacement in November. Dr. Saleh did an amazing job putting me together without a lot of pain. A FEW WEEKS of therapy and I'm back to work now. Dr. Saleh is not only a great Doctor is a really good man.”
“Outstanding on knee surgery. Thank you Doctor Torpey.”
“I had my hip replaced in September by Dr. Torpey I couldn't be more pleased with the care I have received from he and his entire staff. At 43 years of age you could imagine how scared I was to have this procedure done. Dr. Torpey was absolutely amazing prior, during and postoperatively. I would recommend him for anyone needing hip care at any age!”
“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!”
“This gift comes in appreciation of your skill as a surgeon and attention and kindness to me as your patient.”
“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.”
“Thank you for all that you have done for me while working on my knee. It was a long recovery, but well worth it. I truly would not trust any other person to perform that procedure on such short notice. I will continue to stretch and take good care of it. I am looking forward to a healthy and successful 2017 lacrosse season. I can not thank you enough.”
