Joseph Dotson – Shoulder Surgery

Dr. Martin ColemanDr. Martin Coleman is very knowledgeable, has a lot of experience, and made me feel there was no doubt the surgery on my shoulder would be successful.

It has been almost two months since my surgery and I’m already feeling better than before. Thank you, Dr. Coleman!

Diana J. Rondinelli – Shoulder Surgery, Spine Surgeries, Knee Replacements & Pain Management

 

I have seen several doctors at OSC over the years; most recently Dr. Martin Coleman. I was referred to him by Dr. Mark McFarland for shoulder surgery which was successfully completed. Dr. McFarland helped me with back surgeries and knee replacements.  In the past, my mother saw Dr. Raj Sureja and we both felt the same about his services and knowledge.

Each experience with the Doctors at OSC has always worked out well. And any interaction with the staff there has only shown me very caring, informative and knowledgeable people.

I would highly recommend the Doctors at OSC – and in addition their support staff.

Thanks for making my surgeries a whole lot easier and with better results than they might have been.

Jane Stone – Shoulder Surgery

 

Dr. Martin ColemanI have been going to OSC for about four and a half years now and and have been seen by Drs. Mcfarland, Burrow, Carlson, and Sureja. It is because I have significant damage to my joints, my muscles, my shoulders, and my back.

Dr. Martin Coleman by far has been, no holds barred, hands down, blunt, to the point of what I needed to have done, and expedited getting it done for me, so I can be out of this this pain that I’m in. There was no mollycoddle, there was no dragging it out. He just said point blank “you need to have a shoulder surgery. Now don’t do this, but do that, and don’t do this, but do that, and don’t mess up my work!” Basically or he’s going to be pissed off at me, LOL.

All in all, my overall rating for Orthopedic and Spine Center is like a 4.5 out of 5 because they put up with all my idiosyncrasies that I come along with my pain and my problems and never once did I feel uncomfortable expressing my opinion or emotions concerning all my visits. They’re a good group of guys for sure!

Cathy Everett – Rotator Cuff Surgery

 

Dr. Martin ColemanIf you need to have rotator cuff surgery I highly recommend Dr. Martin Coleman. I had surgery on Nov. 2, 2020. I had done my research and discovered that Dr. Coleman was the best shoulder surgeon on the Peninsula. After discussing the surgery with several of my friends that had already had rotator cuff surgery and researching the doctor they used, I knew I needed the best because “I don’t do pain” very well.

I made the right choice. I have had very little pain. The first month my shoulder/arm was a little sore, but very tolerable. I was amazed after hearing the horror stories of many of my friends’ experiences with other doctors. Trust me, if you do exactly what Dr. Coleman tells you to do, you will not have any problems. He’s very knowledgeable and cares about his patients. He’s a no nonsense type of doctor. But don’t let him fool you, he’s very kind, caring and will “break character” with a genuine smile once he sees your progress. He’s an amazing surgeon and I am forever grateful for his extraordinary care.

Fred Berger – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

Dr. Boyd Haynes, IIII found it harder and harder to lift my right arm and use it as I needed to. After much thought as to the trade off between a poorly functioning arm and major surgery, I decided to consult with Dr. Boyd Haynes.

He and his team of professionals did a thorough examination and laid out the rotator cuff surgery I would need and fully explained the recuperation processes.

The surgery went well and I followed Dr. Haynes instructions for my physical therapy to the letter. I can say that following the PT regimen has accounted for my rapid recovery and 100% use of my arm — without pain.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Haynes and his team and can wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone.

Jackie Smith – Rotator Cuff Surgeries and Shoulder Manipulation

Dr. Boyd Haynes, IIII tripped at work in August 2018 and was diagnosed with a massive rotator cuff tear. I wound up having two surgeries and a shoulder manipulation performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes and finished my Physical Therapy a couple weeks ago.

I was so fortunate to have Dr. Haynes as my surgeon and highly recommend him. His professionalism and patient follow-up is outstanding.

Jackie Smith – Physical Therapy for Rotator Cuff Surgeries & a Shoulder Manipulation

Jamie Swale, PT, DPTThank you doesn’t begin to express how grateful I am for having the absolute BEST Physical Therapy Team in the area. Having had two rotator cuff surgeries, a shoulder manipulation, and almost 17 months of PT, I know I could not have made it through without this dedicated team. There were days I was ready to give up, but Dr. Jamie Swale and the entire team were supportive, encouraging, and I always left PT with my attitude adjusted and ready to tackle another day.

I highly recommend OSC PT – you cannot ask for anyone better!

Sunnie Dringenberg – Physical Therapy after Knee Replacement

This was my second knee replacement that Dr. Jeffrey Carlson at OSC did and the second time with these Physical Therapists. Joshua Hancock, LPTA, worked diligently with me and I completed my therapy in six weeks.

The place is very clean and the tables are cleaned and prepped after each patient. The whole staff was so pleasant and attentive the entire time I was there.

I truly appreciate all the work they did with me and in a way, I was sad to leave them. I’m glad I healed as I did, but they were like a second family in my life. I seriously hope I never have to

Tom Toothaker, PT, DPT                     Josh Hancock, LPTA

return for surgery or PT again, but if I should, I will definitely return to OSC and have Dr. Carlson do the surgery and Dr. Tom Toothaker be my therapist with Josh Hancock working with me. Thanks, guys!
