Patient Testimonials

Weekend Warrior trusts Dr. A!

I play competitive sports, surf and skate like a kid. Over the years, my ice hockey habit has resulted in several "doctor visits". Even though our hockey is no-check, it's certainly not "no-contact". Recently, in my mid fifties, I suffered a torn ACL, bringing me back to Dr. A for the most serious injury I've suffered. I'm writing this to share my delight with DOS and especially with Dr A. He inspires confidence and has never failed to fix me up. If you're a banged-up weekend warrior like me and you refuse to give-up on the athlete inside you, go see him. He's confident, solid and expert at what he does. Consider this full throated endorsement.

Shoulder Surgery

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.
