“I have been seeing Dr. Gentile for YEARS and I love him. He takes a measured approach and wants to try everything non-invasive first. My brother needed shoulder surgery this summer, he took my advice and saw Dr. Gentile who confirmed what everyone was telling him (much to his chagrin). Unfortunately, he's a good hour north and he found a doctor closer to home. But hearing it from someone he trusted, was all he needed. Dr. Gentile is never allowed to retire.  ;)”

“Dr. Gentile is an excellent and compassionate surgeon and Orthopaedic Care Professional. For many years now, he has been someone who has enabled me to live a far better quality of life than I ever expected due to the nature of my injuries when I first became a patient. I cannot thank him enough for all that he has done for me. He has also . . . referred me to Dr. Gabisan and Dr. Cohen and Dr. Gesell when it was required. I am extremely grateful for his care and he has also treated both of my sons at various points in time. I recommend Dr. Gentile to many friends and acquaintances and also this office in general. Also, your support staff . . . the nurses, the X-ray technicians, the people who handle appointments, surgical scheduling and billing are all amazing people. They are "Simply the Best" to take a line from Tina Turner.”

“For over a year or so, I was dealing with hands that were waking me up in the middle of the night. They would become numb, tingling and, painful in the middle of the night which would usually always wake me up. I'd have to hang them off the side of the bed and shake them down to attempt to regain the normal feeling back and hope that I could fall back asleep again which didn't always happen. After having had enough of this, I contacted P.O.A. and asked for Dr. Gentile for help with my condition. I had both carpal tunnel surgeries performed by him within a month and a half of each other. The condition was relieved immediately and the recovery was very quick. I am using my computer again, sleeping through the night, and playing my guitar again without any pain or further issues. I'd also have to give thanks to the P.O.A. Physical Therapy Team for all of their help post-op. Thank you all very much!”

“I've been a patient of Dr. Gentile since he opened his first practice in Toms River. Through the years, he's diagnosed & treated various ailments as well as done two surgical procedures on me. He once diagnosed broken bones in my leg that 2 emergency rooms couldn't find after being X-rayed. Dr. Gentile is a rarity in the world of medicine today. He never acts rushed or makes me feel like he's pressed for time. He actually listens with undivided attention! I've recommended Dr. Gentile to others & will continue to do so. Thank you, Dr. Gentile for your compassion & for helping me out of many painful situations!”

“Since 2011, my son had severe pain in his knee for 3 years. I had been to numerous doctors and had MRI's done and was told everything from growing pains to wear different shoes to we cant't see anything wrong. Thank God Dr. Gentile "thought outside the box" and recommended a bone scan on my son's leg. Sure enough, a tumor was found inside his femur and Dr. Gentile recommended a surgeon in Newark who specializes in that type of surgery and it was done last July. My son has been free of pain since. By the way, Dr. Gentile also performed surgery on my hand which feels great. Thank you, Dr. Gentile! You truly are a great doctor!”

“Good and even better that my knee has healed.”

“I'm pleasantly surprised and I say pleasantly because I did not expect the level of satisfaction I got from this office. I'm now retired from the corporate world and I find myself complaining how offices are terribly run and how, nowadays, people just don't care-most of them want to do the minimum required and could care less if client satisfaction is being provided.  A couple of years ago, I needed a shoulder specialist and by pure luck I decided to have Dr. David Gentile look at my shoulder.  Dr. Gentile took his time to explain in details what he was going to do to solve my problem.  He operated on my right shoulder and as he predicted, my shoulder was fixed.  A year later, while teaching soccer in the community, a kid ran into me and because my bad knee did not provide me the right balance, I feel and my other shoulder now needed to be repaired.  Dr. Gentile performed the operation and again he fixed it.  I decided to have a full knee replacement and to my regret, I did not call Dr. Gentile; I let my therapist convince me to see another surgeon- a mistake I regret and I'll never forget.  I found this new office to be rude; not to care about their patients and worse yet, I found the doctor to take the "I could care less attitude."  My knee replacement was a complete failure.  The insurance company gave me the permission to see a different doctor for a second opinion and at the same time they told me a revision was being negated.  I was not going to make the same mistake and this time I called Dr. Gentile for his recommendation - he recommended Dr. Mark Gesell.  On June 24, my revision took place.  While waiting for June 24, a family member got hurt.  I asked, once again, Dr. Gentile for his advice.  He recommended Dr. Glenn Gabisan and with no hesitation we went to him.  She got her procedure done and we are both in the recovery stage.  Dr. Gentile is now a key person for me - any problems I go to him and thanks to Dr. Mark Gesell, for the first time, I feel confident my knee will be fine.   Doctors, thank you very much; thanks to all of you I feel I'll be able to enjoy a normal life.”

“Thank you, times two!  You are more than just an extraordinary doctor, but a gracious human being too. The first thank you is for successfully treating my leg pain over the past two years.  Today I can resume my active lifestyle without stress and physical pain. The second thank you is to express my appreciation for the incredible opportunity to shadow and observe surgery with you.  Changing my role as patient to student in your world, although brief, was an experience that made it definite to pursue a career in the healthcare profession.  I look forward to more observation opportunities with you.  Enjoy the rest of your summer.  ”

“Dr. Gentile, I thank you so very much for your super presentation at Toms River East High School on sports injuries. It was truly an honor and a privilege for me to have you and the other presenters take time out of your very busy schedules to drive down to Toms River High School East. Additionally, I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to have you perform the surgery on my injured leg (ruptured patella tendon). You did a fantastic job and I will always be very grateful to you and Professional Orthopaedic Associates. Thank you again for all you have done.”
– R. Devito
