What our patients are saying…
You are My Hero!
“My name is Marie Latortue. I am a Dentist originally from Haiti. Dr. Mesa – you are my Hero! You saved my life in 2001. I was involved in tragic car accident in Atlanta, GA. This incident almost put a stop to my career, but thank God you offered your time and expertise to treat me. While at the hospital, I was diagnosed with broken ribs, leg and right arm and shoulder. All of my injuries were pertinent to my dream to become a Dentist. The injury to my right arm/shoulder was the one that I was most concerned about.
I endured imaginable pain for several weeks and was not able to have the surgery because I did not have any health insurance and could not afford to pay for the surgery. Living in a foreign country without any immediate family, no health insurance and a language barrier, was very difficult. Without any help, I could either choose to go back to Haiti or be willing to lose my arm. I cannot recall how you learned about my case, but all I know is you reached out to me and gave me the best hope of life. You mentioned that it was not a great idea to go back to Haiti because of the lack of technology to repair my arm.
I will never forget that day when you saw me and looked at me with compassion. You told my cousin that you would be willing to do the surgery for me for free. Today, I still have that right arm to serve others and glorify God. I am now working as a Dentist/Assistant Professor at Baylor University. I am married and I am the proud mother of two boys. I never experienced any pain or discomfort with the pin that you inserted in my arm. You are the best Doctor ever! Most importantly you saved my life. I will always keep you and your family in my prayer.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
You’re the best
“Dr. Patterson – remember as Mark Twain said – “Wrinkles are reminders of where smiles have been” Keep smiling! Thank you for saving my arm! You are the best.”
Kudos and Accolades to Dr. Damian Andrisani
I highly recommend consulting Dr. Damian Andrisani for your orthopedic needs. I have been a patient of his for two separate issues – a frozen shoulder and a recently discovered Chronic ACL tear. Both times, Dr. Andrisani was not only a professional, excellent clinician, he was also a caring and compassionate individual. A combination that is rarely discovered. He takes the time to discuss and explain his diagnosis, giving in-depth consultation that is easily comprehended, thereby allaying any fears or apprehensions on the patient’s part. I cannot highly recommend Dr. Andrisani enough to any and all patients with orthopedic concerns.
Excellent result from Xiaflex injection
I went to Dr. Patterson for my Dupytren’s syndrome. I had a Xiaflex infection and subsequent manipulation. I am very pleased with the results! My finger is fully flexible! The recovery time was not substantial and I had little discomfort post-procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Patterson if you’re considering having this procedure done. I’m glad I finally decided to address this issue! I no longer poke myself in the eye and am not embarrassed to shake hands! Thank you, Dr. Patterson!
First time patient
Hi, I have been a patient of Dr. Andrisani for a few months now. He performed a total shoulder replacement for me this past July. He and his team -Regis, Justin and Elyse have been nothing short of great. I cannot say enough about them. Whenever I had questions they took their time to explain things, and to let me know how the surgery was going to happen in detail. Each follow up appt. has going so smoothly and I thank them for that. All in all, a good bunch of people. Very professional. Thanks Pete
I first met Dr. Andrisani in Jan of 2017 when I had a left shoulder that was causing discomfort. After an MRI he ordered, he indicated the rotator cup was strained but not detached. He gave me a chortisone shot, which alleviated the discomfort. I was also introduced to the Dr,s enthusiasm for baseball. Later that year l reinsured the same shoulder and returned to Dr. Andrisani, where another MRI indicated a torn rotator cup. He recommended surgery. Surgery was performed as scheduled, during which additional shoulder damage was discovered and corrected. My experience with Dr. Andrisani and everyone of the staff I encountered were professional, courteous and efficient. The post operative treatment was informative and closely coordinated with the physical therapy. My experience with DOS , Dr. Andrisani, and staff exceeded all expectations.
Takes His Time
“I am a RN and have been a patient of Dr. Voltz’s for the past two years. He has treated me for several different ailments. His diagnostic skills are top notch. He takes his time and allows you not to feel rushed. I especially like the fact that Dr. Voltz sits down with you and explains the problem and plan of care with you. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Voltz to my co-workers and family.”
I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with Dr. Perscky and the staff at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. Dr. Perscky was knowledgeable, caring and concerned. Her and the entire staff, including her medical assistant Randee were friendly while maintaining professional and efficient standards of care. I am so very thankful for the excellent care I received from Dr. Perscky and Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing foot or ankle care and would recommend DOS to anyone needing orthopedic care as I have had great experiences with other physicians in the practice as well.
Thankful and Grateful
“Dr. Rubano, you certainly have a God given talent in doing what you do. I am so thankful and grateful that I had my hip replacement. You did good!”
Informative and Positive
“After fracturing my ankle in Florida on November 8th and flying home, Dr. Kupcha accommodated me and saw me on the same day of my arrival from Florida. His prognosis was very detailed and accurate. He advised me that of my options, surgery vs. allowing it to heal on its own, pointing out that it would take the same amount of time to heal. I selected natural healing. Follow up visits have been very informative and positive. I hope I never get hurt again, but if I do, I will go back to Dr. Kupcha without hesitation.”
Long term success
It’s going to be four years since my right ACL surgery and I just wanted to thank Dr. Palma and your staff for such a great job. I’m 47 y.o. and my knee doesn’t feel any different than my left knee or from my pre-injury days whatsoever. It’s crazy.
Dr. Solacoff is GREAT
Dr. Solacoff is one of the best doctors I’ve been associated with. He explains in layman’s terms. Additionally, he and his staff are kind and so courteous.
Pain Free for Several Months
“Dr. Bradley Bley is the epitome of a gifted orthopedic specialist, not only because he is attentive to my needs, but also because he brings the gifts of healing. At each visit he reviews sources of pain, inquires about any changes worth noting, and then proceeds to have his capable assistant set me up for treatment. A pillow to cradle my head or support my body can make a difference. They’re a team. When inserting a syringe into my joints for guided injections, he explains each step along the way…letting me know what to expect and what is happening. When he has finished treatment, I know that I will be relatively pain free for several months, supported by prescribed medication. At 88, I have a quality of life, thanks to Dr. Bradley Bley.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you to Dr. Galinat for enabling me to get my shoulder and back strengthened. I’m in the best shape than I’ve ever been. I have been working with a trainer and they follow your exercises on Prevention and Recovering from Shoulder Injuries.”
Goes Above and Beyond
“I met Dr. Eskander 2 years ago when he was first starting at Christiana. My mom had severe spinal stenosis and was in severe debilitating pain. The first time she met him she told him things were so bad she wished she were dead. He spent so much time with us that day and ended up admitting her to the hospital. She had a wagon load of medical issues and he had to get medical clearance for her from 3 other docs. We were a mess to say the least. After surgery he always made sure that he kept me up to date on what was going on. She required more care after surgery and was placed in a facility. Every time she saw him he spent time making sure she was ok and comfortable. He treated her with such care and kindness, something you don’t see in every doctor. I never really had a chance to thank him for how wonderful he treated her. So when I needed surgery he was the only choice. My symptoms were getting worse at a time when my mom just had a heart attack and was dying of heart and kidney failure. Erin worked with my tight schedule to help plan my appointments and surgery. They were very sympathetic to my problems. After surgery my insurance was a problem and Erin spent a great deal of time working with me. Thank goodness last Friday Dr. Eskander called my insurance company and was able to get it resolved. He and his team go over and above and they are wonderful people to deal with.”
Right to the Point
“I became acquainted with Dr. Gelman over 20 years ago. My family doctor needed the services/guidance of an orthopedic physician. Dr. Gelman’s knowledge and assistance during this frightening ordeal came to a healthy conclusion. Again, I have been and still am a patient of Dr. Gelman regarding any problem needing orthopedic expertise. My satisfaction is due to Dr. Gelman’s approach – right-to-the-point and that is what I expect from any physician. His way above-par diagnostic knowledge absolutely gives me the confidence that his advice will be the course to take to become as healthy as age and circumstances allow. I have never been disappointed by any other physician/services he recommends. More importantly, scheduling an appointment is certainly acceptable. One does not have to wait months while trying to deal with pain and/or anxiety. To me, this is most respectful to the patient making such a request. Thank you to Dr. Gelman and his staff.”
DOS – A Community Gem
Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists is an extraordinary practice filled with very talented, compassionate and patient centered physicians. I have experienced care by doctors Galinat, Patterson and Principe. Whether showing up in the emergency room, the office or the surgical suite I knew I would get the very best of care informed through best practice for orthopedic specialists. Follow-up care assured full mobility of whatever body part was injured. Everyone should know that this practice will consistently deliver the very best care and achieve the best outcomes. How lucky are we?
I was having a lot of difficulty with my shoulder, I had been treated a month prior to meeting Dr. Galinat. by a Doctor very well known for treating shoulder problems. I was very disappointed with this Doctor’s interest, I received a shot and then received no directions for a follow up. I happen to talk to Dr Dellose a family friend, I told him of my experience, and he recommended Dr Galinat. My first meeting with him he listened to me, after hearing my problem and understanding my life style, he did an injection that was completely in a different location than the previous shot, I have not had problem since which has been a year, Thanks again Dr, Dellose and especially Dr. Galinat.
Very Manageable and Comfortable
“I recently ran the Tokyo Marathon and although I have the typical physical issues that go along with a race, the major concerns with my knees had absolutely no impact or posed any challenge to the race. I had no pain at all in my knees, not even the more severe left knee. My hips had minimal discomfort at best. As a Masters Distance runner, I believe our HCP’s are partners in our training and an integral part of an athlete’s success and Dr. Rubano is an excellent example of that partner. For this last race in Japan, he helped make a very challenging course very manageable and comfortable. So thank you!”
Superior Orthopedic Surgeon
“I want to thank Dr. Galinat very much for helping me get my shoulder in shape and pretty quickly too. I knew something was wrong because my shoulder didn’t feel right. Now it feels fine, thanks to your method. I started working with a trainer at the Y to build strength in my shoulder and the rest of my body to keep it strong. The Wilmington, Delaware community is fortunate to have a superior orthopedic surgeon of your caliber. I also want to thank your wonderful staff as well.”
Staff is Friendly
“I would like to thank you all and especially Dr. Patterson for his expertise in surgery. I now have the use of my right hand back with no pain. I can’t wait to have the surgery done on my left hand. The staff is friendly and Beth is wonderful to work with to schedule appointments. Thank you all so much!”
Excited about the Future
“It’s been a while since my last surgery, but I just wanted you to know that I started my senior season at Conrad and my arm and knee are feeling strong. I’m excited about the future and appreciate your help in getting me healthy so that I could continue playing competitive baseball. I listened well and have been diligent about arm care. Good advice!”
Very Kind and Sensitive
“I want to thank Dr. Rubano and his team for everything they’ve done for me. I am able to walk properly because of you. You are an excellent doctor and I cannot thank you enough. My experience for both my knee operations have been positive. You are very kind and sensitive. My heartfelt thanks to you and everyone who was on your team. Competent and sensitive physicians like you are the prize and asset to the medical profession.”
“I don’t know how to thank Dr. Galinat enough for all of the wonderful and very successful procedures that he did for me. He repaired my rotator cuff, repaired my torn biceps muscle and did a tendon release. I had the surgery in February and was back playing tennis in June. I had some slight discomfort at first, but now I have none. From Dr. Galinat I learned patience, as I followed the rehab instructions. I feel better now, than I did the past 10 years. It really has been a miracle. I have given an outstanding referral to all I know. Again, all I can say is sincere thanks. You helped me to live again.”
Cornerstone of my Success
Thank you for all your help over the last few weeks. Dr Rubano’s expertise has been a cornerstone of my success so far, but it could not happen without an equal amount of dedication and support from you and his great team. Please pass on my appreciation and thanks to everyone.
“It has been six months since you operated on my shoulder for a torn rotator cuff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the very successful outcome I achieved as a result of your expertise. My whole experience with you and your very professional staff has been wonderful. You are to be commended on the practice that you run. Every single person I encountered did an excellent job. All personnel conducted themselves in a very capable manner, my questions were answered on a timely basis, appointment times were kept, and it appeared to me that your staff truly enjoys their work. I have full range of motion, with no pain, and am cautiously working on strengthening exercises. Again, thank you very much!”
Your Care and Skill
“Dear Dr. Quercetti,
On June 22 I was attacked by a pitbull and suffered severe injuries to my left arm. I want to thank you for your care and the skill in saving my arm. Over the weeks you performed 8 surgeries and I was so grateful to have you as my surgeon. You were always caring and thoughtful which meant a lot. It’s been a long 4 months but I am finally bandage free. The scarring is minimal to which I attribute to your incredible skill. I have very little feeling in parts of my arm but thanks to you, I still have it. Thanks again for being not only a highly skilled surgeon but also a compassionate human being. As I approach my 87thbirthday, I am so happy that you were my doctor.”
New hip works better than old hip !
It’s been almost a year since my hip replacement. I wear heals, run up steps (and down), dance…. you name it, I do it.
Might have to have the other old one done just to keep up with the new one !
Staff is very efficient, never waiting long for anything.
I have degenerative osteoarthritis that has moved into my feet. I can no longer run distances and the pain can be quite severe. Dr. Perscky spent a lot of time with me going over my x-rays and MRI. She explained everything in simple English and gave me quite a few alternatives to managing the pain and mobility. I have never had a doctor take that much time at each visit. She patiently listened and answered all my questions. She even re-laced my sneakers to alleviate the pain. I will continue to see her as needed and am so pleased to have found such a knowledgeable, patient and kind doctor.
Honest, Upfront Approach
“I had the privilege of finding Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists as a result of a broken ankle from slip and fall on ice. Dr. Voltz’s use of an honest, upfront approach when assessing all treatment options was amazing. After ordering an MRI for chronic back problems, was able to return my disability from employment into back to work status through physical therapy and proper home care treatments. Great job!”
I needed to have my arch reconstructed and went on Facebook to get opinions! Several respondents suggested Dr Kupcha and I am glad I followed up with their suggestions! Everything was remarkable from my first call through my discharge! My visits were on time, I was not rushed while discussing my concerns and the checkout procedure was easy!! The entire staff was friendly and my phone calls were returned quickly, the PA’s are extremely competent and very responsive!
Dr Solacoff and the entire staff at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists are consummate, compassionate professionals. Dr Solacoff did my total knee replacement and I found him to be not only a great surgeon (I barely have a scar) but a great listener. He takes the time to explain things, offer all options available and answer any and all of your questions. After years of chronic knee pain, I’m now able to have pain free mobility and I thank the good doctor and all the staff at DOS for making it happen.
Kind, Thorough and Attentive Way
“I just want to thank Dr. Patterson so much for being such a good doctor to me. My hand and elbow have healed fabulously and there is very little numbness left. I really appreciate your kind, thorough and attentive way. I wish that all doctors were as great as you. Keep up the excellent work.”
“A couple of years ago Dr. Galinat performed surgery on my right shoulder after multiple disclocations. A couple of years later he did the same routine on my left shoulder. This past school year I placed third in the conference on my tennis team. Because of Dr. Galinat’s expertise, I was able to continue playing. I look forward to furthering my sports career.”
Expertise with Sports Related Injuries
“Between three children and 8 different high school sports, our family has spent many hours visiting Dr. Bley’s office. We appreciate his expertise in diagnosing sports related injuries. He is thorough with diagnosing issues and attentive to the kids’ desire to return to sports activities. Dr. Bley is candid with his recommendations so my children have known the expectations needed for a quick recovery and the attention needed to an injury to make the return to activities timely. Dr. Bley efficiently informs the proper channels of any diagnosis so the high school’s trainer, coaches and teachers are aware of injuries and the proper restrictions that are suggested for the recovery. Dr. Bley has a great manner with students and parents. I appreciate his care and would highly recommend Dr. Bley and his office for any sports injury or need.”
Recent appointment with Dr. Kupcha
My first appointment with Dr. Kupcha went extremely well. I did not feel that I was just a number. Dr. Kupcha spent time with me explaining the problem with my right foot. He is not one to jump in and say I need surgery right away.
He is going a different approach with a walking brace that will enable me to walk with less pain and hopefully I will not need surgery. I can’t say enough about the office staff how professional they were and most helpful. I was also most appreciative of how soon I was able to see the doctor since I had not been a patient before. I would highly recommend DOS to anyone that was in need of an orthopedic.
Getting Around and Doing Well
“Thank you to Dr. Rubano for my Mom’s first hip surgery in the spring. We drove to the top of the mountain and she made a short walk to the peak with her Rollatur! Thank you for making it possible. She is getting around and doing well. I cannot thank you enough!”
Never Skips a Beat
“From the very first time my family and I met Dr. Quercetti, we knew he was the right guy for the task at hand. He was my trauma surgeon at Christiana Hospital and handled most of my recovery appointments. He was thorough with the details of my surgery and recovery. Dr. Quercetti has excellent bedside manner and never skips a beat when he works with his patients. I’m proud to say I was in great hands with him.”
Professionalism at its best!
I am, firstly, overwhelming happy that I met Dr Rowlands, Dr Eskander and their right hand team members. I have had two surgeries done with this team. One was a disc replacement in my neck that exceeded expectations. The other is a lumbar fuse I’m currently in recovery for. All I can say is, after having many prior surgeries, and being under the care of various other doctors and practices, you really never know what a good practice looks like until you are a patient under DOS. DOS should be the pure definition and model of what a medical practice should be for the rest of the medical field. I will NEVER put my body or life in the hands of any other practice out there. It’s not because their staff is always friendly, not because of the cleanliness of the entire area, not because I never have to wait beyond my appointment time, not because the staff makes sure you as a patient understands what’s going on, but it’s because of their wealth of knowledge and their ability to get the job done right the first time so I can resume the life I was destined to have with my family. I cannot thank DOS & especially Dr Eskander’s team enough.
Marveled at the Amazing Job You Did
“Dr. Patterson, you truly saved my hand and wrist with your magic reconstruction and creative use of metals. After one year, I am still marveled at the amazing job you did! Thank you DOS and Doug, you are the best!”
I wanted to express my gratitude with Dr Andrisani and his exceptional staff. They made me feel like a real person and not just a number. The staff is extremely helpful, with a special shout out to Justin for his prompt attention to my insurance paperwork. My shoulder surgery went extremely well, as well as my recovery.
Thank you to Dr A and his entire staff!
Professional and Compassionate
I was referred to your practice specifically to Dr. Townsend for issues with my wrists and arms. I’ve been treated with nothing but kindness and compassion. Dr. Townsend is wonderful and the office staff and patient assistance’s were also kind and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this practice!
“It’s been a while since my last surgery, but I just wanted you to know that I started my senior season at Conrad and my arm and knee are feeling strong. I’m excited about the future and appreciate your help in getting me healthy so that I could continue playing competitive baseball. I listened well and have been diligent about arm care. Good advice!”
Treated Me Great
“I want to thank Dr. Patterson for getting my throwing hand back in shape so I that I am ready for our biggest tournament of the year! You and your operating staff treated me great both times! I really appreciate your help.”
Mark Wright is great
Can’t say enough about Mark.
Thank you so much for making a painful experience comfortable.
Your hugs made all the difference!
“Thank you Dr. Galinat for taking such good care of my knee. I know that when I get to play tennis and ski again, I will be doing so on a much improved knee. Maybe my tennis play and skiing will improve too!”
A Treasure in Our Community
“For the past year I have had a minor rotator cuff injury that had not responded to exercise, massage or physical therapy. In fact, some of these modalities actually made it feel worse. Being a physician and an active workout enthusiast I needed to find something more effective and yet not totally invasive. I had the excellent fortune to find Dr. Bradley Bley who used his innovative techniques to both diagnose and treat the problem. Prior to working with Dr. Bley I’d only been able to discover surgical remedies, which created disability and potential side effects. Dr. Bradley Bley combines the acumen, skill and compassionate personality of the true physician. He is a treasure in our community and works with a stellar practice. I do not hesitate to highly recommend him to other clients and have already done so.”
Humanity, Humbleness and Excellence
“I would simply assess Dr. Eskander as a top health care physician/provider. Giving him a number will express his humanity, humbleness and excellence for his patients, specifically me. I met him in difficult circumstances, while he was not yet part of this practice. His knowledge, great dedication and patient centric attitude, made me forget, if that is possible, a horrendous experience with another physician. What he represents as a doctor and a caring human being has continued through all my encounters with him. Because of this, I followed him to DOS and I’m highly satisfied and grateful. He is simply a well rounded person and a top physician. My husband and children join me in wishing Dr. Eskander a satisfying, long and successful career.”
Gave Me the Best Gift Ever
“My husband and I want to thank Dr. Galinat for all of his care and support. It has been a long 10 years of pain and discomfort. After many years of different prognosis, physical therapy, etc. we were sent to Dr. Galinat. My previous surgeon in VA was able to diagnose the problem, but he said Dr. Galinat was the best. He told us he “read the book on this type of surgery” but Dr. Galinat “wrote the book.” We then had hope. Immediately after my surgery, the pain was gone, and so far, has not returned. You not only gave my husband back his wife, you gave me back my quality of life. You gave me the best gift ever and I will always be grateful.”
A Long Active Life
“I recently had my right knee replaced by Dr. Steven Dellose. I also had my left knee replaced in 2008 after many years of being in pain. My knee problems stemmed from my athletics when I began contact sports around 10 years of age until I ended my contact sports around 35 years of age. Prior to having either knee replaced, I received a series of shots in my knees to see if that would ease the pain. Unfortunately, the shots were not effective, and I needed to schedule surgery. It was reassuring to know that Dr. Dellose and his staff were there to guide me through that process. I am very grateful for the care I received from Dr. Steven Dellose, Joseph Cassidy and Christine LaFashia of Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. The counseling they provided prior to my surgery along with the treatments, surgery, and finally, rehabilitation, has enhanced my life. I am looking forward to a long active life with my wife, children and grandchildren.”
Care about Patients
“After a very complicated and serious back injury I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon than Dr. Eskander. He recognized troubling symptoms right away and immediately took action to get me admitted to the hospital. During my hospital stay he was extremely attentive to my care. His assistant even came in over the weekend to ensure that my symptoms hadn’t worsened. Dr. Eskander did an exceptional job with my surgery despite it being complicated by other health issues. Prior to surgery I’d had difficulty walking due to the injury. Five months out, I’m back at work. Dr. Eskander made it a priority to get me back to my best possible activity level. He and his staff are excellent at what they do and very clearly care about the patients they treat.”
Skill Level is Excellent
“Dr. Bley performed a needle tenotomy guided by ultrasound in January 2014 for my tennis elbow. He is the consummate professional who listens to his patients’ concerns. His skill level is excellent and most important respects his patients. An excellent healthcare professional.”
“I wanted to thank you for the great work you did on my left humerus. I can’t believe how quickly I have been able to regain movement in my arm and shoulder after 5 physical therapy sessions. You did a fabulous job! I am grateful that you were there to piece my arm back together. I can say there was a blessing and a miracle in my life that day when I ended up as your patient. I am forever grateful.”
Comfortable and Strong
“I just wanted to thank Dr. Galinat for the work he did on my dislocated shoulder. It is comfortable and strong in just about every activity I do. I was able to compete in the Collegiate National Triathlon Championship at which I was 65th out of over 700 undergrads! It’s great to be back to normal. Thanks again.”
Dr. Eichenbaum is the greatest!
My elbow had multiple fractures and dislocation! Dr Eichenbaum performed the complicated repair surgery within 12 hours of the accident! I had to be transported from Sussex County, DE, (where NO other surgeon would touch the needed procedure) to New Castle County, where the challenging procedure to repair my elbow was promptly performed by Dr. Eichenbaum. I use my arm, now, as if nothing had ever happened. The Dr. as well as the staff were all fantastic, professional and caring. I loved going to all my follow up appointments.
Improved My Quality of Life
“I have been to Dr. Bley for several different problems. He has always been very caring while also educating me about my problem and taking care of it. He has done injections under the guidance of ultrasound and I really don’t feel them. He and his staff have improved my quality of life and I highly recommend him to everyone.”
“Dr. Voltz has been a wonderful doctor to me and my two children as we’ve worked through various sports and other orthopedic injuries. For my children, who are very competitive high school athletes, Dr. Voltz works to find the most efficient and effective path to recovery that can get them back into training or competition as quickly as possible. For mine and their injuries, he is very meticulous in gathering all of the information needed (through X-Rays, MRIs, and other tests) to ensure that he is thoroughly understanding our problems and prescribing the best solutions. On top of all of that, Dr. Voltz has an excellent “bedside manner” – explaining our problems in a friendly, clear and understandable way.”
To Give Credit Where Credit Is Due
I have been a patient of Dr. Kupcha’s for many years. He performed excellent surgery on my Achilles tendon and my left arch. He has an excellent group of physician’s assistants and a very helpful office staff. I would recommend Dr. Kupcha to anyone without any reservation whatsoever.
Doctor Galinat treated my bad knees for years Both knees were arthritic and bad. Shots and exercise kept me going so I could continue to play golf 4 times a week . I questioned him about knee replacements. He said I myself would know when it was time. My knees started giving out. When I told him, he said it was time. Doctor Galinat was now specializing in shoulders and not doing knee replacements. He made it a very smooth transition to doctor Dellose. I am now the proud owner of two new knees in the last two years. The good news is that my golf handicap has stabilized at 78 years old. Doctor Galinat also treated my twin daughters who were high level soccer players. To me these people are specialists who to me operate as family doctors.
I cannot thank Dr. Galinat enough! After three surgeries by other surgeons with no relief, I turned to him as a last resort. He took an aggressive approach and was determined to figure out what was wrong. And he did. I am virtually pain-free for the first time in years! His whole team is awesome too — I enjoyed dealing with Robert and Morgan. Never a wait at the office and very timely in returning phone calls. My last post-op visit was a week ago and I felt sad as I was leaving. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends!
“Thanks to Dr. Nicholas Quercetti and his entire team, I am on my way to a full recovery after a successful elbow surgery. My injury and subsequent surgery required two plates and six screws. Like most people who are facing surgery, pain is sometimes replaced with anxiety and the thought of a long recovery. Dr. Quercetti sensed my anxiety and quickly put me at ease. His calming demeanor helped immensely in the days preceding my surgery, and post surgery as well. I’m quite sure that surgeries like mine could be considered as routine for many Surgeons. Dr. Quercetti gave me peace of mind as he explained the procedure and recovery process, which helped me get through my surgery and recovery. The office staff truly shares Dr. Quercetti’s concern for patients, and I can’t say enough on how they too made me feel at ease during every office visit. I would recommend Dr. Quercetti and his staff to anyone requiring surgery. I am forever grateful for all he and his staff did for me during this difficult time.”
Extremely Efficient and Capable
“On October 2, 2016 I completely tore all three of my hamstrings off of the pelvic bone after a slip on a wet floor and I was in extreme pain. I could not walk without crutches and it was very difficult to do basic things like walking up steps or sitting. I needed surgery immediately, this surgical repair is rare and there are not a lot of doctors that have experience with this type of injury. My research led me to Dr. Mesa with Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. My husband and I met with Dr. Mesa, he answered all of our questions, he explained that I would need to wear a brace and not put any weight on the repaired leg for about 6 weeks. He told me that I needed to be patient with this recovery and I have been. I am now 2 months into my recovery and I am walking!!! This is all due to Dr. Mesa’s god given talents…
I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to the entire staff at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists; they assisted me from start to finish with the many details that are associated surgery, FMLA and physical therapy. Each and every associate has a special job and they are extremely efficient and capable.
Thanks for helping me walk and sit again without pain, I think about how grateful I am every day!!”
Very Kind and Caring
I just want to thank you for the care you’ve given me over the last 5 months since I injured my rotator cuff. You both have been very kind and caring the whole time. You always take the time to answer my questions and explain things to me in detail, using words I can understand.
Morgan, you always answered my emailed questions quickly and accurately. You conduct yourself in a very professional manner, but at the same time you are very friendly. Your kindness always came through.
Dr. Galinat, you always took the time to answer my questions thoroughly. You explained very technical things in a way I could understand them. I enjoyed talking golf with you. I felt like you really understood how disappointed I was to not be able to play in our annual Myrtle Beach golf outing. I appreciate how you handled my rehabilitation, taking it very slowly and making me wait 3 months to start PT, in spite of my impatience. I see now that was the best course of action.
The Consummate Professional
I can’t say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Steven Dellose and the entire DOS team. From the first time I met with him, I knew I wanted him to perform my total hip replacement. During my first consultation he asked me what my expected outcome (activities, sports, etc.) was from the surgery and fully explained what the procedure was going to entail. On surgery day he again fully reviewed what the procedure was going involve. When he visited my room later that day, he provided me with a recap of the surgery and genuinely wanted to make sure I was doing ok and was comfortable. Dr. Dellose will definitely be performing my other complete hip replacement in the coming months.
Inspirational, Innovative Surgeon
“Dr. Steve Dellose is a most inspirational, innovative surgeon. He is always confident, comforting and compassionate with a smile. He took that extra moment to share additional insight or calm my anxieties as I approached the next stage of the healing process. I was fortunate and honored to be included in some of his latest creative techniques. In the early stages of my total knee replacement he detailed how I could guarantee my own success with a positive attitude and a dedicated physical therapy conviction. His philosophy permeates throughout the entire office, his surgical team and even his patients. We all sang the same tune…”your rehabilitation is dependent on your own efforts”…”it is very important to get your leg straight”…”0”degrees” the “sooner the better”…..”your recovery will be so much faster”…..How could I not listen and work even harder to achieve great results…..and I did!…Thank you Steve…..you are the epitome of the word “healer”. You have given me my life back.”
Level of Professionalism and Courtesy
“Dr. Paul Kupcha performed my Achilles Tendon surgery in August of 2013. The surgery was a success. As I’m still in therapy, I also have follow up appointments with Dr. Kupcha and his PA. The level of professionalism and courtesy has been outstanding to say the least! Dr. Kupcha for starters has excellent bedside manner along with his staff. Each time I’ve gone for my follow up, Dr. Kupcha has provided outstanding service, given great advice and also asks how my family is doing, which is rare for some physicians. You can’t put a price on that level of service. Additionally, I don’t want to leave out his receptionists as they too have been welcoming during each visit. I pray I don’t have another injury requiring an Orthopedic Surgeon, but if I do, Dr. Kupcha and team will be my choice.”
“I was very pleased with Dr. Voltz. I was experiencing difficulty walking due to inflammation of my knee. He suggested trying several techniques before we decided on a total knee replacement. I liked that it wasn’t just a “you have to have surgery” right from the start. We tried other things first. Office and staff were excellent. Thank you!”
I wanted to thank Dr A and his staff for taking the time to walk me through the procedure prior to surgery and then helping me to understand what to expect after the surgery. I also would like to give a special thanks to Justin for going above and beyond to ensure my medical forms were completed in a timely manor.
Thank you again to everyone who worked with me throughout the process.
