“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.”
“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.”
“My foot surgery went well. Dr. Gabisan had explained the surgical procedure and recovery time to me during the last office visit. Dr. Gabisan was very reassuring. I also found that Rosanne, the scheduler for surgeries, was very helpful. I saw Dr. Gabisan before my surgery on 2/20/17, and he went over the surgical procedure with me. Dr. Gabisan saw both my husband and myself after the surgery and discussed the initial phase of my recovery. Dr. Gabisan was very thorough, and I had a good understanding regarding this surgery.”
“Diagnosed my problem quickly. Told me my options and exactly what to expect. Sent me for a MRI to confirm it.”
“He is professional, but friendly. He provided all the information I needed and answered all my questions. He preformed shoulder surgery with great results (so far).”
“Dr. Torpey is a wonderful doctor and I would recommend him to anyone that has any problems with their knees. He cares a lot for his patience and will do anything to see them recover without pain successfully!”
