Patient Video Reviews

"Could not believe that I broke my foot, nonetheless in three places. Dr. Gabisan took excellent care of me, and I would recommend his services to anyone. It was an absolute positive experience. Well, as good as it could be when one is casted!!!" -- Janet U.
"My story started May 2012, when my muscle on my left knee detached from my bone. I went to the ER first, then to Professional Orthopaedic Associates. I saw Dr. Gentile, who took a MRI. After seeing the results, he set a date to operate. All that I told him was that I did not want to know anything at the time of the operation. True to his word, I did not feel anything. I came out of the operation feeling good. His professionalism, knowledge, and compassion, made me feel safe and confidant at the follow-ups. He gave me confidence to dance and to walk on my leg again I would highly recommend Dr. Gentile and his staff for any orthopaedic needs. Thank you." -- Robert P.
"I had an open dislocation to my left ring finger (MIP joint), suffered during a rugby game. I was reaching for a loose ball when a player from the opposing team came in with her foot. This was the second injury to the same finger treated by Dr. Johnson. Previously, I had a fracture that required two pins to properly set the bone. Both injuries had amazing outcomes, and I couldn't be happier with the care I received from Dr. Johnson and the entire practice!" -- Christine D.
"I had hip replacement surgery with Dr. Gesell a year and a half ago. I can't tell you how much it has meant to me. I am "as good as new," and I can do everything I was always accustomed to do, leading an active life. The surgery took about twenty years off my age! I am so grateful." -- Helen B.
"I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Gesell. He is extremely nice, and a very compassionate doctor. Because I had such positive experiences, I referred my family members to Professional Orthopaedic Associates as well, and they had the same experience I did. I have nothing but high remarks for Dr. Gesell, Dr. Foos, and Kevin Ruscio, P.A.-C." --  Daniel H.
"Excellent care and a very knowledgable physician." -- Barbara F.
"August 2013, my 17 year old daughter had a boxers fracture on her right hand.  I searched for 2 days to find a doctor that would take our insurance. I could have taken her to the emergency room, which would have cost over $3000, just to be looked at WITH insurance. Then we would have been told to go to an orthopaedic doctor to reset the hand and cast it.After being on the internet for 2 days searching for a doctor, I found Professional Orthopaedic Associates at 5:55 in the evening and left a distressing message on the machine. I told them that I needed care for my daughter with this certain insurance, that NO one was taking, or no one was available to see her for 3 weeks! At 6:00, I received a very calming voice on the other end of the phone that they would be able to help us. They had an agreement to take what ever the insurance would give them. The relief was indescribable. We went the next morning at 7:30 am. The office was friendly and very professional. Dr. Johnson was great. He was very professional and very relaxed with my daughter. We laughed about her boxer fracture that is usually a male injury, from hitting a wall. Temper temper. My daughter’s care was outstanding and very professional. I would go back if I needed to any time.I was nervous that the bill was still going to be high, with one child in college and the next one ready to go to college, our money is being handled very carefully. When I received the final statement from the insurance company of what we owed, which was zero. We paid our co-pays and they stood by what they said and took what ever the insurance company paid.  All I could do was thank God first, and thank Professional Orthopaedic Associates for their generosity and their integrity.  I haven't been able to say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, until now. Our experience was a great blessing and a life lesson for my daughter. Never punch a wall when you’re mad." -- Laura S.
"Dr. Foos has been an absolute caring physician since my knee surgery. He takes his time with explaining the procedure, post-op, and office visits. I am very pleased with his services, and have referred several of my friends to him. They were completely satisfied as I was." -- Lorraine W.
"I suffered with knee pain for quite a long time before being referred to Dr. Foos. He spoke to me, had me have x-rays and a MRI. He found that I had a torn meniscus in my left knee. I had never had surgery before and was nervous to fix my knee. Dr. Foos performed an arthroscopic procedure. Since he helped me, I have not had any pain in my knee at all. He advised me that my right knee also needed the same treatment. The x-rays had shown a slight slanting of both my kneecaps. Two years after my first procedure, he did the same procedure to my right knee. I am grateful for Dr. Foos and all the staff in that office. They were nothing but kind, happy, and reassuring. It was such a great experience that I recommend this practice constantly. I only wish other doctor visits for other reasons were as pleasant. After rehab (with Sheila) within the same practice, I have full range of motion in both my knees. I am one happy and content patient. I work two jobs and I am a single mom, and I thank God for you all for making me better so I can work.  Thank you." -- Maria P.
"I was getting ready for work early a.m. on 12/13. While putting my socks on, something happened to my left hip. I literally could not move an inch in any direction without extreme pain (never felt pain that intense in my life 62 years old). I thought I dislocated or broke the hip. My wife called 5 different orthopaedic offices, and no one would see me that day except Dr. Gentile. I had a walker in the house, was able to make it to the car, and my wife drove to the office.  Not only did Dr. Gentile see me that day, but he did not take my insurance. He said he would accept payment from my insurance, whatever it was, without additional charge to us. He took x-rays and his bedside manner was wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Gentile!  It took 2.5 months, but with only the medication Dr. Gentile prescribed, the pain in my left hip totally disappeared!! Now I'm very careful whenever I put my socks on." -- David S.
