"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
"Dear Dr. Bade, Each morning as I walk down my long driveway to retrieve my New York Times, I both say a prayer to God for the agility I have in making this trek, and to thank Him further for gifting you with the hands that made it possible. I am sure I am not in your memory, as you are a busy surgeon, but you remain in mine almost daily as I walk with a degree of grace and wear shoes with heels and can maintain my equilibrium. My full recovery did not set in until approximately two years after my operation, but the entire process from surgery to rehabilitation was so well coordinated and efficient that it led to me being pain free and a mobile woman once again. This short message has been running around in my head for a long time, and I am finally able to put my thoughts to paper, and want to once again say Thank You for the hard work you do in your profession, and for making me feel so "whole" again." ~ E. Haines of Brielle NJ
"Dear Dr. Bade, Thanks for a most excellent total right hip replacement one year ago. It works perfectly and you have given me the greatest gift, a pain-free, full nights sleep. I also deeply appreciate your prompt, expert and gracious completion of all the extra paperwork  reports, records, letters- occasioned by the fact that mine was a motor vehicle accident case. Your genial staff, including Patty, Colleen, Dolores, Debbie and both Kevins, is first rate at their work and make your office run like a clock. I recommend your practice at every opportunity." ~ Nancy M. Red Bank, NJ
