Miller: Shoulder Repair

I slipped and fell on the ice two years ago and tore my subscapularis tendon.  I saw four different surgeons who all said the damage was too massive to repair.  Then a friend of mine recommended his surgeon, Dr. Miller.  Dr. Miller thought he could do a series smaller repairs and during surgery, was  in fact was able to salvage some of the subscapularis tendon as well.  He was the only doctor who took the time to fully explain what he saw on my MRI and how he thought he could fix it.  I was impressed with his analysis of my injury and what he thought was possible.  There was one other doctor from a large New York City hospital who thought he could fix it, but I felt like I would just be a number at that place.  I felt like I would get personalized attention from the people at ONS and I did. Everything is healing well and for the first time in a long time I feel optimistic.  BH (Manhattan)

Miller: Shoulder surgery

I am very, very pleased with my experience at ONS.  Everyone was terrific —  Dr. Miller, the nurses and the entire staff.  Everything was positive and went smoothly.  I had surgery two weeks ago and I’ve already recommended Dr. Miller to someone.  MR (Repair of rotator cuff and labral tears, bone spur removal).


Dr. Simon is compassionate and attentive. His medical expertise is only surpassed by his humble demeanor. (SR)


I met with neurosurgeon Dr. Scott L. Simon last week. I found him very knowledgeable, kind, concerned and passionate about his field. I came in with multiple symptoms of pain in my hips, leg, lower back and buttocks. He performed an exam thoroughly and ordered x-rays. Upon my request, Dr. Simon gave me a copy of the x-ray without hesitation and a print out of his diagnosis. He also ordered blood labs to rule out any underlying problems. I felt confident with Dr. Simon, in fact, I’ve already recommended him. Now I await the results. (Comment from Rate MDs)


Dr. Mark Vitale is a highly knowledgeable, courteous, and professional hand and wrist surgeon who has cared for me over the last three years. I am fortunate to have him as my ONS physician. If you’re in need of an orthopedic surgeon, I highly recommend Dr Vitale. (Comment from Rate MDs)

Delos: Knee Replacement

Dr. Delos is an awesome surgeon. He performed a knee replacement for my husband. Could not have had a better surgeon. Dr. Delos also helped our daughter who was injured in Canada with a fractured hip. His approach to her was so positive, and he was extremely honest with her prognosis as long as she followed his direction. She is now doing full marathons and an Ironman. All of this was because of Dr. Delos. He is the best surgeon I have ever met. His people skills are beyond reproach as well as his office staff. (Comment from Rate MDs)


Dr. Simon is a rockstar. I needed emergency surgery from a car accident and will thank God every day that I got Dr. Simon as my surgeon. He is an amazing doctor that has a kind heart, and I am alive because of him. He inspires me to be great at what I do in my own field of work. Thank you! (Comment from Health Grades)

Fiore: Spinal Fusion Surgery

I recently underwent a 5 level spinal fusion surgery with Dr. Fiore. Surgery took 10 1/2 hours, and 5 nights in the hospital. I was walking with the hospital therapists the day after surgery and doing stairs the next day. Dr. Fiore motivated me to walk often, so I did, and I didn’t have to go to a rehab hospital. Dr. Fiore’s skills as a surgeon, manner with me, and overall ability to communicate effectively all contributed to a superb recovery and magnificent result. I’d love to give him 100 stars.

Fiore, Apostolides: Spinal Fusion Surgery

Dr. Apostolides assisted my neurosurgeon, Dr. Amory Fiore, in a recent 5 level spinal fusion surgery. Surgery lasted 10 1/2 hours. Before surgery, Dr. Apostolides was kind enough to come in to wish me well. He has a lovely bedside manner and I knew that  from former spine surgeries he assisted Dr. Fiore with,  the results would be superb, and they were. Having inherited two spine diseases from my father, I feel blessed to have found these gifted neurosurgeons and lovely human beings. 1000 stars are not enough. (Comment from Health Grades)

Sethi: Rotator Cuff Surgery

I had rotator cuff surgery in October 2016. Dr. Sethi was not only professional and knowledgeable, he was the most caring doctor I’ve ever met. Post surgery pain was minimal… 3 months later I am 99% better. I cannot say enough about him and his staff. (Comment from Health Grades)


Dr. Peden and ONS were fabulous in all respects–caring, professional, highly skilled and totally responsive! (Comment from Health Grades)

Kavanagh: Total Knee Replacement

I am a 62 yo male. My minimally invasive TKR was done at Greenwich Hospital in Oct 2016. Within 10 days I had full range of motion (0 – 140), and walking w/o a walker in less than 2 weeks. Four weeks post surgery I was walking w/o a cane. Here I am at just under 4 months and my knee feels great, with only a little stiffness from sitting for long periods of time. Dr. Kavanagh is a highly competent surgeon, and his minimally invasive approach makes a huge difference with recovery time. Highly Recommended! (Comment from Health Grades)

Wei: Wrist Surgery

Dr. Wei scores all tens in my book.  Throughout my entire experience, he was caring, sensitive, and very thorough. He gave me all the time I needed to have all my questions answered. I never felt rushed. After the surgery, his follow up was outstanding.  Even the stafff — each person was lovelier than the next.  I’ve never been cared for like that.  If I ever need another operation I would go to him in a minute.  Dr. Wei is above and beyond.

Dear Dr. Apostolides, you gave me hope. Then, you repaired my broken body and gave me new life (I’m walking 1/2 hour, 3 times per day!). Thanks again. (DMT)

Miller: Rotator Cuff Surgery

A fully functioning shoulder joint rotates 360 degrees. When I arrived at ONS, my range of motion was only a fraction of that. With the skilled hands and intelligent mind of Dr. Seth Miller, my significant rotator cuff tear has been successfully repaired and I can fly again! (comment from RateMD)


Dr. Kessel is great. She takes the time to explain the procedure and overall, took sufficient time with me. Great bedside manner. (comment from Health Grades)
