“Dr. Gentile diagnosed me with compartment syndrome. He performed bilateral compartment release surgery to release the pressure in both of my legs. He gave thorough explanations about the process for the surgery as well as the recuperation period. Dr. Gentile is my hero. After 7 months of not being able to play softball, I look forward to getting back on the field in a few weeks thanks to Dr. Gentile's help. Special thanks to everyone at Professional Orthopedics for making this ordeal more tolerable.”

“Dr. Gentile first saw me a few days after my fall and explained through your what XRAYs and testing showed. He explained fully the option of the surgery to reattach the quad to the knee. After the surgery he was very patient and understanding throughout the recovery period to date. WILL CONTINUE THERAPY AND BE BACK IN 6 WEEKS .”

“I am one hundred percent cent satisfied with my surgery and all prior and post services. Dr. Gentile spent more time than any other doctor has, answering all of my questions and concerns. He even spent time looking at x rays and my mri from another injury. Then he gave me options and the names of five other doctors that could assist me with this problem. I have now had three surgeries at Professional Orthopedics. Each was a success and a great experience.”

“Dr. Gentile was very informative about my surgery. He was very pleasant. I was given adequate pain relief post surgery. I started physical therapy and made progress faster than I thought I would. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gentile to anyone who needs an orthopedic surgeon. I also would recommend the physical therapy associated with the practice.”

“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. Dave, Just a quick note to thank you for assisting with my knee replacement.  After your wonderful care for the past 12 years, I was just so appreciative to see your smiling face prior to going to the O.R. that morning.  Tom and I knew from the beginning that you didn’t do the replacements, but you kept your word when you told me you’d do your best to help the surgeon.  Dr. Gesell was a great recommendation…thank you for that as well.  I feel like I’ve gotten the best of both worlds…two great surgeons and functional results!  Now I have two surgeons to walk me into the future (one I consider a dear friend). Thank you again.”

“Dear Dr. Gentile, I'd like to thank you for performing surgery on my thumb carpal tunnel and l relieving my pain. The time you took to explain the procedure to me, your warm personality and the fact that you were able to fit me in so quick put me at ease. This chicken was nervous but was worry-free as I could be! Your office staff and physical therapy group are always upbeat and I felt well cared for. Thank you for your expertise and for making my hand better!”

“I've been a patient of Dr. Gentile for a few different issues over the years and feel that I've always received the best care available anywhere. Dr. Gentile is an excellent doctor and has always been very personable (as are the rest of the staff there). There were times where I required surgery and I'm better than I was even prior to my injuries. Friends that have had the same or similar surgeries have not done as well as I have and I attribute that to Dr. Gentile. I can't imagine ever going anywhere else if the need arises again in the future. The convenience of having X-rays and MRI's done on site is also a bonus. Many thanks to Dr. Gentile and Professional Orthopaedic Associates for the care you've provided.”

“I have been seeing Dr. Gentile for a few years most recently to treat my hand when I fell and sprained it while walking my dog. He is one of the most caring and gentle physicians I have met. When there was little improvement he tried something different which worked. Excellent care by the staff as well!”

“I have had two surgeries on my foot to repair damage from a vase that fell and severed nerves and tendons making it impossible for me to walk any distance without pain or discomfort. The first surgery was actually to repair what had been done by a previous surgery and the second was to remove numerous neuromas and provide pain relief. I can't say enough about the expert care and kindness shown by Dr. Gabisan I have referred friends to his practice as well.”

“I can't say enough great things about the care my daughter received from Dr. Gentile, and the entire staff at POA!  From the early morning call I made to their service on April 1st, the morning after my daughter was thrown from a horse and released from an emergency room near her college campus over 3 hours away, to seeing us the very same day, if to only make sure her sling fit properly and calm her crazed mom.  My daughter had a bad break and the emergency room doctor had been talking about emergency surgery.  Dr Gentile truly cares.  I can honestly say  he treated my daughter as he would treat his own family member.  Our 1st scheduled appointment was Monday April 4, 2016.  I had spoken with his scheduling secretary a few times by then, at length.  Upon our arrival she came downstairs from her office to say hello and meet us in person and see how my daughter was feeling.  Above and beyond is the only way to describe the actions of everyone involved in her care.  The attention paid to her injury, as well as our family's well being, as a whole, helped to comfort us. What was initially a very scary, traumatic situation, became manageable. I felt sure everything would be ok.  It's been over 10 weeks and my daughter is doing fantastic, thanks to the expert care she received.”

“Wow ... Well, I blew out my right knee and went to Dr. Gentile and he gave me the option of Surgery and pushed for PT. I really liked that he didn't want to rush to surgery. After PT it still wasn't up to 100% so surgery was required. When it came to my left knee ... Well .. It was my fault cuz I couldn't sit still. So after surgery on both knees I am up to 8 miles biking and 6 miles walking on the board walk in Belmar & Spring Lake. If you go to Doctor Gentile you will get an honest medical option for rehab or surgery. He will push rehab for you!! I know cuz both my shoulders were a mess (hereditary ) and he helped me to rehab them without surgery. So my advise .... Go to a doctor who is NOT out for $$$$ BUT for you !!!!! Thanks Doctor Gentile!”
