Dear Dr. Cohen and staff, I had to write and thank you for giving me back my LIFE! I feel excellent and I am doing some of the things I love to do. When I came to you I was quite desperate and worried about my future. It's not just my job (teaching 2nd grade) that was in jeopardy, it was my livelihood. I have a teenager and two young children to care for, as well as an active sporting life that I was not ready to give up. From my first visit you and everyone there (Marilyn and Adrienne especially) were so kind and understanding. The insurance company was making things very difficult for me. Out you were always available to answer my questions and ease my concerns. Thank you again! (And the scars aren't even so bad, by the way :) - Fondly, Toni F.
Dr. Johnson, I just wanted to take a minute to praise your staff! From making my 1st appointment, requesting medical records and asking for billing help, I received top notch customer / patient service. I got what I needed and I got extra help with my billing issue. Not only a call back from Carol, but followup from others on staff on my behalf. Your staff goes above and beyond what you need. They are pleasant, helpful and they deliver on their promises. I just thought you should know, because these days this is EXTREMELY RARE Thanks for a great experience. You guys are top notch!! A. Jones ~ Red Bank, NJ
"Dear Dr. Torpey, Thank you for all that you did for Max. His shoulder is as good as new - even better! Thank you, too, for the information you provided to the Army for the medical waiver process. With that - we wanted to be sure to tell you the good news - Max got his appointment to West Point a few days before Christmas. Needless to say he was (is) thrilled - it was the best gift he could have wished for. Thank you again for everything & Happy New Year!" ~ B, D & M. Betten
Skiing at Whistler after collar bone injury!Dear Dr. Bade, Just a short note to thank you and your staff for taking such good care of my broken collar bone and encouraging me to stick with my plans of skiing after only two months of recovery. I took it easy and had a great time. Next year it is back to the double blacks. ~ Regards, Steven D., Rumson, NJ
"I just want to express my thanks and gratitude to my spinal surgeon, Dr. Jason Cohen, for his professionalism and expertise. Dr. Cohen treated me for my lower back issues and made it possible for me to cycle again...pain-free! ~ Gordon B., Red Bank, NJ
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bade and my experiences at both the Toms River and Tinton Falls offices to everyone who asks about my son's surgery. You and the other employees at POA have been such wonderful people to deal with. I have never seen a more professional or accommodating doctor's office. I really appreciate all that you do. ~ Stacy S., Toms River, NJ
Just a brief note to express my gratitude to you and Carla. The professional manner in which I have been treated has been most impressive and greatly appreciated. ~ Mike S., Point Pleasant, NJ
I wanted to drop you this note to thank you again for putting me back together. All factors considered, it couldn't have gone better and my quality of life has improved drastically. Everybody from your staff, to the hospital, to the rehab hospital, through the out-patient rehab couldn't have been better. I have enclosed a picture of me at work, as well as from a picture from 1981, when I was playing b-ball for Tiffon University, A D-II school in Ohio. The old man is in the athletic hall of fame. I truly appreciate the way I was treated. - Associate SAC Daniel Anderson
The proof is in the video of me skiing- spinal fusion works! Dr. Cohen, thank you so much! In June, I couldn't walk, then I had my surgery. In July I rode my bike 20 miles after spinal surgery. By Labor day, I jogged a half mile. In September I was able to jog to a run at least two miles and I was swimming every other day. I started back skiing in December and I was able to be aggressive right from the get-go, powder skiing most of the winter, then onto being aggressive in the bumps, but slow! The biggest believer out there is me!! Thanks again, ~ Tim H. Sea Girt, NJ
Dear Dr. Johnson, My son has been under Dr. Torpey's care for over five years now for a shoulder injury and we have always been extremely happy when dealing with him and his staff. It is so comforting that he recommended you to treat his hand injury because we see that we are getting the same exceptional care and treatment. ~ Valerie Z., Holmdel, NJ
