Dr. Vitale, Tara Friedler, DPT, CHT

I wish there was more I could do or say to express my appreciation for both the doctors and the therapists at ONS. I had a really terrible finger injury over 2 years ago. Over the course of 2 years I have tried two different surgeries with a different popular practice in Stamford and have had no luck. I understand my injury is one that is difficult to fix and takes tremendous patience and attention- so really this is no diss at my previous doctor by any means. Despite my surgeries being with a different practice, my PT/OT was always with ONS and specifically Tara. If you have the opportunity to work with Tara after surgery, rest assured you are in good hands. Tara helped give me confidence in my hand and movement in my finger during a very trying time in my life. I was discouraged and frustrated I wasn’t getting movement after both my surgeries and Tara was always positive and patient- I am forever grateful for that. After not healing right from the second surgery even after tons of OT, I decided to get a second opinion from ONS doctors since I had such a good experience with their physical therapy. Within minutes, Dr. Vitale looked at my hand and knew exactly what had happened and that I had gotten a contracture post op from the trauma to my hand. Without making any medical assumptions, he sent me for an MRI and the results concluded what he assumed to be true. We scheduled treatment and got the ball rolling right away. I can’t describe to you the level of attention and care ONS will provide you. They are a smooth running operation and the communication from doctors to PT is second to none. They truly care about their patients. From coordinating times that will work with my crazy schedule and just sending an email to ask how my splint is holding up. The small details are what matter most when you are medically frustrated. They made me feel like there was more they could do for me and it was at least worth a try for every procedure we did. I always had confidence in their medical advice and fully trusted their decisions. I can’t see how anyone could give this practice or PT office a bad review. They are medically up to date and provide high end care all while keeping the human component alive. I am so grateful I found ONS. In a world and in a city where you have many options for orthopedic care, I know it can be difficult to choose. I knew I had to leave a review to help people like me who felt stuck with their medical treatment and who needed someone different. Give ONS a call, you will not he disappointed.

Bethany Deer, DPT: ACL Surgery Rehabilitation

I had the best post op instructions and follow up care I’ve ever had & ONS Physical Therapy was brilliant. I feel very fortunate to have been under his care and have made a full recovery. My knee feels awesome! I’m very grateful to Dr. Kowalsky, his team and my PT Bethany Deer for all of their help and most of all for truly caring about my recovery. THANK YOU!! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Greene, Alicia Hirscht, DPT

I thought it was important to send a note to someone at ONS about Dr. Greene and Alicia Hirscht, DPT. I have been treating with Dr. Greene for a torn abductor tendon and other hip issues since December. I started PT in Stamford under Alicia Hirscht. I would easily recommend either practitioner to a family member.

Dr. Greene’s communication was clear and concise when weighing treatment options.  PT Hirscht made room in her schedule for me and took the time and effort to get me up and playing tennis again. They are both true professionals and showed an incredible amount of patience working with me to recover from my chronic injuries.

Keep up the excellent work and hiring practices. (note from patient P.Y.)

ONS Physical Therapy: Frozen Shoulder

Alicia Hirscht is an absolutely top-notch physical therapist!  As a physician who cares for patients myself, it was so wonderful to experience the kindhearted, knowledgeable, compassionate, and encouraging approach that Alicia took while treating my shoulder problem.  She guided me through an intensive 12-week program of physical therapy during which time I started out with a frozen shoulder and ended up with virtually full range of motion.  She managed my expectations beautifully, and she gave me terrific guidance with home therapy exercises.  I cannot recommend her highly enough! (Note from patient F.S.)

Physical Therapy: Back Pain

I contacted ONS Stamford over a weekend via their website to have someone call me to make an appointment. At 8:45AM Monday morning, I received a call with an offer for a same day appointment with an orthopedist. The next day appointments were available for me to start physical therapy. The P.T, Bethany, thoroughly evaluated me and always clearly explained at each appointment what she was doing. The patient portal included videos of the exercises I needed to do at home, which was very helpful until I remembered them on my own. The office promptly submitted claims to insurance. Most importantly, my back pain was greatly reduced by the end of my appointment series. I feel like I have a good understanding of what I need to do to stay strong. I would definitely return to ONS in the future. (5 Star  review on Google by N.T.)
