Dr. Apostolides

Dr. Paul Apostolides was a very nice doctor and his staff too. He is very professional and he helped me as much as he could and helped me understand my problem. Thanks so much doctor. (5 Star Review on Google from Maridza M.)

Dr. Delos: Partial Knee Replacement

After years of PT, 2 surgeries that did not help, & numerous steroid injections I finally found ONS & Dr Delos. I WISH I had found him earlier! He listened to my story, understood MY situation & MY needs, evaluated MY condition & found a solution. He presented options & explained them all thoroughly. We made the decision together to undergo a partial knee replacement & WOW what a difference. At 7 months I walked a half marathon with NO ill effect, & I am back bike riding and hiking. And did I mention that this was an opioid free surgery – I did not need ANY strong painkillers – even in the hospital, I felt very little pain at all, I was only taking Tylenol!!! And as for the scar on my knee – what scar – you can barely see it! Thank you ONS and Dr Delos. (5 Star Review on Google from Gail W.)

Dr. Clain

I would definitely recommend Dr Clain, he was more than patient with my years of indecision about my surgery and was compassionate and comprehensive with the best of care once I did decide to have the surgery. I always felt like I was in the best hands I could be under his care. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from Maryann R. in Port Chester)

Dr. Berliner: Anterior Hip Replacement

Dr. Berliner is a very nice man who answered all of my many questions prior to and after my surgery. It has been 4 weeks since my anterior full hip replacement and I am doing very well. I was pleased with his bedside manor, he had no arrogance and I never felt rushed at an appointment. Most of all, with Dr. Berliner’s muscle sparing anterior technique, I was able to do a full squat with no pain only 8 days after my surgery and I was twirling my cane like Charlie Chaplin on my daily walk! (5 Star review on Healthgrades from Lisa in New Canaan, CT)

Dr. Delos: Meniscus Repair

Dr. Delos performed ACL repair surgery as well as a meniscus repair after a ski accident in March 2018. Dr. Delos is not only an excellent surgeon, but also a caring and concerned doctor. I highly recommend him to anyone considering any type of knee surgery. I am almost back to my full strength and am forever grateful to Dr. Delos and the Physical Therapy team at ONS. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from Michele R. in Riverside, CT)

The Best Doctor/Patient experience i have ever had. Went to him as a 2nd opinion for a partial ACL tear. He laid out ALL the options and was very knowledgeable with all my questions. I have FULL CONFIDENCE and have recommended him to others. They All love his Work!! (5 Star review on Googles from Don T.)

Dr. Sethi: Rotator Cuff

I went to see Dr. Paul Sethi for a second opinion regarding a small rotator cuff tear on my left shoulder. My sister recommended Dr. Sethi as he repaired her shoulder a few years before. I was so impressed by Dr. Sethi that I decided to have him perform the surgery. During surgery it was discovered that my tear was massive. After seeing the images of the tear, it’s amazing that Dr. Sethi was even able to repair my rotator cuff. I went for my three month follow up today and I am at 100%. My friends at the gym who have had the same injury and surgery as me can’t believe what I am able to do at just three months. Most of my friends are not where I am and it’s been a few years since they had their surgery. I tell everyone that I had the most amazing surgeon. Dr. Sethi originally told me that it would take about nine months to lift my arm straight up and I am able to do that in less than three months. I recently sent my daughter to Dr. Sethi for knee pain she was experiencing. When she came home, she told me that she was also impressed by his bedside manner and the care she received from him. Dr. Sethi has the most amazing bedside manner and truly makes you feel as if you are in good hands. He will take care of you and you don’t need to worry about anything. I also want to say that the staff at ONS is truly professional. The staff does an amazing job in scheduling their appointments. I have never had to wait in the waiting room and usually go right in to see the doctor. I can’t say enough about Dr. Sethi and ONS. (5 Star review on Google from Denise C.)

Dr. Sethi: Biceps, Rotator Cuff

Dr Paul Sethi did a great job on my shoulder. I tore my long head bicep tendon and my rotator cuff was a mess. I work construction, played baseball, coached little league etc. I’m 60 now. DR. Sethi was my 3rd opinion and gave me the most confidence. Operation turned out great! He repaired it all! I have no more pain now that I’m back working, working out and throwing baseballs to my grandkids !!! He’s the best !!! (5 Star review on Google by Ray V.)

Dr. Sethi: Shoulder Surgery

I am a 45-yo female competitive rower. I’d been having trouble with my right shoulder for 18 months. After a year of applying every plausible alternative therapy to avoid surgery, I succumbed to the reality. There was no question in my mind that Dr. Sethi would do my surgery. He’d operated on a few fellow athletes and has a sterling reputation for both outcomes and manner. He delivered beyond my expectations in all respects. As a fellow athlete himself, he really understood the unique considerations of my life and the specifics of my individual sport. He warned me that going from my usual athleticism to no activity would have psychiatric effects. That warning came to mind when I started catching myself randomly crying when my kids didn’t put away their laundry or I saw videos of puppies and babies on my Facebook feed. I realized what was going on and that helped tremendously. He anticipated that I’d be eager to get back to my sport and have a propensity to try to “over-achieve” the process or not rely on others for help. He sternly warned me that some of the character qualities that serve me as an athlete would be liabilities in recovery. That warning changed the way I considered my choices. We had a detailed discussion about the potential repairs that could be made and the trade-offs that would accompany a faster recovery and less extensive repair. After that discussion, I elected for a “one-and-done” approach. He ended up repairing my bicep, labrum and rotator cuff. He also removed a very large bone spur that was sitting on top of my rotator cuff. I did my PT with ONS as well. As always, they were stellar. But here’s the punchline. He said the soonest he would be willing to have any kind of conversation about my return to rowing would be 5 months post-op. I accepted that and adjusted my expectations. At every appointment, he was very pleased with my recovery. I then thought, “Cool. I should be good to go at 5 months.” At my 3 month post-op, he concluded my exam with the following statement. “I can’t think of any reason why you can’t return to rowing.” “What? Are you serious? What restrictions?” “Don’t do anything stupid.” I got back on the erg and haven’t had any problems. Went back to full time training and after about a month also started performance training. When we got back on the water, I found out that I could still even hold the full weight of one end of a quad by myself. No problems with the shoulder. I’ve asked physical therapists and others how the heck I healed so quickly. The main theme of their answer is “surgeon skill.” (5 Star review on Google by Jill S.)

Physical Therapy: Tennis Elbow

I have had a chronic tennis elbow problem for several years. I recently decided to finally fix my problem and had an appointment with an ONS doctor who prescribed PT. My experience at ONS PT in Stamford has been nothing short of outstanding. The environment is beautiful (you look out onto trees as you work out) and the skill of the therapists is a 10. Tara, has done a great job with me. After just 3 weeks, I am already seeing significant improvements. I would highly recommend ONS PT. (5 Star review on Google from Bill F.)

Physical Therapy – Stamford

Great experience here after a poor one elsewhere. The healing process starts with the facility which is airy and spacious with tons of natural light. Therapists and assistants are thorough, attentive, friendly, and professional. They carefully create and implement effective treatment plans and follow through with individualized attention throughout sessions (not leaving you on your own while they look after others). Cleanliness is top notch and the equipment is great too. (5 Star review on Google from S.S.)

Dr. Kavanagh: Total Knee Replacement

Dr. Kavanagh: My total knee replacement went unbelievably well including pre-surgery visits walking unassisted in two weeks, and post-surgery appointments. It was the best medical experience that I have been through. To me, his quadriceps sparing surgery should be required. Physical therapists, other doctors and friends were all amazed at my recovery. My primary care doctor said it took longer for him to recover from his hip replacement, which is known to have a much easier recovery. Office staff is superb. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from Ron in Oxford, CT)

Dr. Simon

I saw Dr. Simon today. He asked all relevant questions and did series of tests (none of which the Neurologist or Physiologist in Stamford had done when I saw each of them separately last year.) He is an excellent listener and provides substantive insights. While my issues appear to be systemic and not directly spine related, I highly recommend him based on his thoroughness, professionalism and taking the time to listen with care. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from  55 year old patient from Ridgefield, CT
