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.
