"Dear Dr. Johnson, At this splendid time of year, it is our joy to express gratitude and respect for your medical practice. Gentle, comprehensive care is so characteristic of the healing arts. Thank you." ~ Katherine & John
“I know it has been a long time coming; however I wanted to show my appreciation for everything you have done for me and my family. After my rehab last summer, as you by now I am sure know, Matawan went on to the state championships. Although we lost, I owe my season to you and I want to thank you whole-heartedly. I will be leaving on Thursday to begin football camp at the University of New Hampshire. This is a new chapter of my life that I am looking forward to beginning.” -- Jared A.
“Dr. Bade and Staff, I just wanted to express my thanks for extending such a generous courtesy. Your staff has been extremely helpful, polite, and very efficient. My daughter Alex is very fortunate and is very appreciative of your care for her ankle injury.” --M. Alfano
“Dr. Gentile, Thank you for putting my wrist back together. I know it was done with careful attention to optimal healing. I get better everyday, thanks to your expertise. Thank you." – John K.
“Dear Dr. Bade, Too often in today's world all of us are quick to complain. I would feel remiss if I personally did not say "thank-you" for the two hip replacements that you performed on me over the past three years and most recently in January of this year. To say the least the success of these two total hip replacement operations has improved my quality of life. In addition, I would like to say "thank you" to the entire staff at Professional Orthopaedic Associates for the way they treated me. This includes the front office staff, the X-ray technicians, the business personnel ,and a special "thank-you" to Patty Orlando. All personnel have treated me in the most professional standards and I as one have always appreciated this. Have a good day, keep the faith, and keep smiling.” – Tom M.
“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. Out you were always available to answer my questions and ease my concerns. Thank you again!” – Toni F.  
September 2013 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
January 2014 Dear Dr. Gabison, I would be re-mill if I didnt express my deepest appreciation for all youve done and the very patient and professional way you dealt with me and my frustrations with the healing process. It was far longer than I expected but I am back to tennis 3x/week - no swelling! Yeah! I am also walking with no pain and no swelling. Im back and very grateful. Thank you so much! J. Kulat
January 2014 Dr. Gentile, Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to experience what the field of orthopaedics is really like. I am very grateful that you allowed me to work with you for the past eight weeks. You explained so much and really included me during the appointments. I was able to absorb information and have experiences that I could never get from a classroom. You were truly a great mentor! Thank you of accommodating my schedule. I appreciate the efforts you made to allow me to accompany you into surgery. It was something I really wanted to see! I'm glad my memories of my first surgeries will have been with you. I had a lot of fun, and I will take this experience with me into my future. I believe that there will be a day in my career that I'll be working with a patient and remember something that I learned from you. Thank you again! This really meant so much to me. Sincerely, Alison Kreimer
"I am an Equine Dentist and am 59 years old. In 2007, I fractured my collarbone in a horse related accident. Because of the nature of my occupation, it’s imperative that I have full range of motion of all my extremities. The recovery required a surgery performed by Dr. Johnson. He inserted a plate and 5 screws to repair my collarbone. In about 7 months, he removed the plate. Thanks to Dr. Johnson and therapist Shelia, I made a full recovery. Then about a year ago, I developed a problem in my knee. The pain was excruciating and I could barely walk, let alone work. Again, my job is extremely physical and requires the use of your entire body, from fingers to toes. Again, I visited Dr. Johnson and he repaired my knee surgically. I was back doing moderate work on horses in 10 days. Shelia was supervising my rehab and helping me get back my range of motion. Of course, it took time to recover. My knee got stronger and my range of motion came back as the weeks went by. Now, a year later, my knee is perfect. I have no pain and have complete range of motion. I am on my feet all day long, doing strenuous work, working most days, and my knee never bothers me at all. As a matter of fact, I would say it’s the best part of me. As far as I am concerned, these people are the best in the business. I recommend them all the time to people with orthopaedic issues and would call on them again if I ever have another problem. They are truly healers and take a genuine concern about their patients well being. If it was not for them, I would not have been able to continue my career as an Equine Dentist. Thank you again, Dr. Johnson and Shelia." -- Ed K.
