PT: Tanya K: Tennis Elbow

I would like to take this opportunity to formally compliment one of your employees at ONS Physical Therapy in your Greenwich, CT office. Ms. Tanya Kalyuzhny has been providing physical therapy to my right arm due to tennis strain for more than three months. Since her first evaluation, I feel that my quick recovery is due to Tanya’s individualized physical therapy programs and expertise.

Encouraging, knowledgeable and professional are the words that immediately come to mind to describe Tanya as a physical therapist. She intuitively knows how to push me beyond what I thought I could do without going overboard. Her insightful facts, statistics and knowledge of the human body are remarkable. She is extremely knowledgeable in orthopedic injuries by including both traditional types of exercise along with newer methods that improve functionality and movement while also reducing pain.

I believe Ms. Kalyuzhny is a key asset to ONS and is part of the reason why many others and I will continue to recommend ONS for any physical therapy treatment. (Letter written by Felicity K., Old Greenwich, CT)

Dr. Delos

Overall – very pleased. Great bedside manner and professional. Great surgeon and follow up post-surgery. Always available when needed as well as attention to detail. Listens to concerns and needs. Have recommended to friends and would go back. The staff at ONS was amazing also. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from Sara A.)

Dr. Vitale: Rare Wrist Condition

I’ve been seeing Dr. Vitale for over a year for a rare condition in my wrist. He is extremely kind and informative. It is very easy to get an appointment and the wait times during your visit are minimal. The physical therapy department is great too. I would recommend him and ONS to anyone.(5 Star Review on Healthgrades from a patient in Stamford, CT)

Dr. Kowalsky: Broken Humerus

Dr. Kowalski besides being very caring, professional and friendly did an amazing job putting our son’s broken humerus bone back together. The follow-up xrays revealed an amazing progress and almost seamless recovery. We are very grateful to Dr. Kowalski and his staff for taking such great care of our young athlete and enabling him to get back to skiing, training and competing in record time! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from a patient in Darien, CT)

Dr. Kowalsky: Elbow Injury

Dr. Kowalsky is the absolute best! Following a serious sport related injury (elbow), I was treated with the utmost professionalism and personal care. He talked me through every step of my recovery, checked in with me, was there when I had questions/worries about being able to return to full activities sports, etc. A year later, I needed emergency surgery (meniscus repair) which he did too. He took such amazing care of me! His level of expertise and personal involvement is unparalleled! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from Steven D. in Greenwich, CT)

Dr. Levchenko

Dr. Levchenko is totally new to me, and he was absolutely perfect for my needs. The entire experience was perfect. Thank you. (5 star review on Healthgrades from Emily L.)

Dr. Vitale: Carpal Tunnel Release Surgical Revision

LOVE this doctor!! I’ve seen Dr. Vitale a number of times–primarily to repair problems from “one of the best” surgeons in NYC who did my carpal tunnel release surgery. Dr. Vitale does beautiful work and has an OUTSTANDING way with patients. Dr. Vitale is extremely kind, unhurried and super attentive and patient, extremely informative and exceedingly concerned with the patient’s comfort. He did beautiful work repairing my surgery (he also took care of my trigger finger with cortisone rather than surgery). I  found him through another medical professional who also gave the highest recommendation. He is the only hand surgeon I would see and I cannot recommend him highly enough!!  (5 Star Review on Google.)

Dr. Kavanagh: Total Knee Replacement

Dr. Kavanagh is an excellent surgeon. I interviewed three different orthopedic doctors for my total knee replacement surgery and he was the only doctor who could do the minimally invasive option which means he doesn’t cut muscles and has less tissue and nerve damage. It is a harder surgery to perform and health insurance doesn’t pay him any more. He does it because he genuinely cares about his patients well-being and recovery. He was also the only doctor I met with that was explained the type of knee implants. I got a rotating platform knee which mimics the natural gait of women. The other two orthopedic surgeons only implanted fixed knees. This allows only one movement and will eventually show more wear than a joint with multiple frames of movement. Do your research before a major surgery. Find out about types of implant, size of scar, follow up care, complication rates, how many surgeries the doctor performs per year…etc. I had a long list of questions that were all answered without condescension. Dr. Kavanagh was patient and thorough.  (5 star review on Google from Marylisa S.)

Dr. Kowalsky: Meniscus Repair

Dr. Kowalsky – I had my left meniscus repaired by you in October 2016 and my right meniscus repaired in April 2017. My desire was to get back into marathon running. I completed my 15th marathon on Sunday, January 7th at Walt Disney World thanks to you and your staff’s expertise and assistance. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the ability to be back running. Again, thank you. (Dennis N., Greenwich, CT)

Dr. Berliner: Hip Replacement

At 34, I was young to need a hip replacement, but needed one regardless. I am very grateful to have found Dr. Berliner. He handled a complex case swiftly and adeptly, with a calm confidence unparalleled in other surgeons.

The post-operative pain was negligible compared to the amount of pain I was in pre-op. Within a week, I was walking with a cane, something I hadn’t been able to do during the 5 months prior.  Evident of his people skills, he even handled my post-operative anxiety about complications occurring like a pro, alleviating any concerns.

I sent the post-op images to a relative overseas who is also an orthopedic surgeon. He said Dr. Berliner did “brilliant work.” – I can only agree.  Thank you. (Laura D.)

Dr. Vitale: Broken Wrist

The staff, from the moment you walk in, are professional, courteous and friendly! Dr Mark Vitale is a top notch orthopedic surgeon! I broke my wrist last week and required surgery. I was not the least bit nervous because I knew I was in great hands! He’s an Intelligent, caring, talented and dedicated surgeon. What more can you ask for!? Don’t get me started regarding Greenwich Hospital! Unbelievably professional hospital! (5 star review on Yelp from Amelia C. in Mamaroneck)

Dr. Sethi: Meniscal Repair

Dr Sethi helped saved our son’s chances of getting into college after a very bad meniscus tear. We are forever grateful for the care and his expertise in correcting the problem. He always made my son a priority, giving our son his full attention, and I’m sure he puts the same effort into every patient. Thank you very much for everything, we look forward to seeing our son back on the court this season. We hope we never have to return, but if we do, we know we are in the best hands. ( 5 star review on Yelp from Jessica P. in Easton, CT)

Dr. Wei: Wrist Pain

My 30-minute visit with Dr. Wei relieved three years of intermittent wrist pain. Dr. Wei was professional and helpful. He was also punctual–I was seen about 5 minutes after I arrived at the office. He answered all of my questions and helped me explore different avenues to resolve my wrist pain. After being treated, I left satisfied and in less pain. I found ONS through my insurance provider, and I am so happy I came here. Great staff and facility. (Anonymous 5 star review on Yelp)

Dr. Simon: Back Pain

I went to see Dr. Simon after two back surgeries with another doctor. At first he thought I might need a third surgery, but when he looked at my back, he saw I had a slight rash. He took a picture of the rash, called the hospital to speak with disease control, and sent a doctor the picture. The conclusion, it was Shingles! I was amazed at his level of caring, and can’t recommend him enough. In all my years, I’ve never seen a more diligent doctor. Need room here to add more adjectives! The BEST!   (5 star review on Healthgrades by MT in Pound Ridge NY)

Dr. Kowalsky: Meniscus Repair

So much praise for Dr. K so I hope this will sum up who he is as a physician, surgeon & man. He knew I was pressed for time to get my meniscus repaired so he scheduled me first thing in the morning (also my preference). As I was leaving after recovery, I met him in the parking garage. He came in early to operate on me alone and then went on with the rest of his day! Who does that but a kind, compassionate, considerate human! Also, I came home with pics which he explained later. I’m eternally grateful! (5 star review on Healthgrades from Jessica C. in New York)
