On July 4, 2017, I fell off a ladder and hurt my shoulder. I guess a 60 year old should have been a little more careful. As a veteran, I was driven to the Hampton VA Medical Center by my wife. When they confirmed there were no breaks, they scheduled me to see their orthopedic doctor in the first week in August and have an MRI conducted. It was here that the VA doctor said the damage was so severe that they did not have the expertise to repair my shoulder and did I have any civilian doctors I would like to see. I had heard many great things about Dr. Martin Coleman at OSC, so I gave the VA his name. They told me that he would have to agree to take a VA patient. Within two hours, I received a call back that not only would Doctor Coleman agree to take me on as a patient, but I was scheduled to see him the next day.
After meeting Dr. Coleman and reviewing my MRI, I was scheduled for surgery to repair a completely torn rotator cuff, dislodged bicep/tricep muscles, and tendons that had completely rolled back.
After the surgery, Dr. Coleman told me the damage to my shoulder was so extensive and the repair so intricate, that he did not want me to even attempt any physical therapy for at least 90 days. He gave me a mobility exercise program that he wanted me to implement diligently. Perhaps the greatest post-surgery factor is that I had absolutely zero pain after the surgery. I did not even have the need for aspirin.
I am happy to say that today has been 90 days since the surgery and Dr. Coleman has given me a completely clean bill of health and to go back to my normal routines with a sense of care not to overdo anything.
I am so happy with Dr Coleman and the entire OSC staff. I can feel myself getting stronger and more mobile every day.
I have never been disappointed with OSC. Dr. Bob Snyder is very punctual and thorough. I always know that the appointment will run smoothly. The overall experience is perfect. Can you please move to Gloucester? 😀
Dr. Sureja went the “extra mile” with me, answering questions and addressing and treating a problem that wasn’t even the principal reason for my visit. He struck a wonderful balance of professionalism and personal caring. His medical assistant was wonderful as well.
I started seeing Doctor McFarland in 2005. He and the staff at OSC have always been wonderful!
I’ve had 2 surgeries, with success, and know my Degenerative Joint Disease and Arthritis will always be treated correctly at OSC!
I love Dr. Burrow! The OSC office is extremely efficient and I wouldn’t change anything. My problems are now solved!
Knowing that I was able to locate, schedule an appointment, and be seen by a great doctor is most important to me and Dr. Martin Coleman has extensive experience.
The staff at OSC was wonderful. They put my mind at ease when another practice that I went to previously, dropped the ball on a surgery I desperately need. Everything about my visit to OSC was wonderful.
Dr. Boyd Haynes accurately diagnosed me (after a misdiagnosis at another clinic) and quickly took action to remedy my issues. He took time to explain the different options for relieving my bilateral carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes. We decided surgery was the best option to meet the demands of my work and at-home life.
Before surgery, he had wonderful bedside manner and made me feel comfortable. I felt confident I was in the right hands. After surgery, he called to ensure I was following the after-care protocol. Should I ever need his expertise again, I will not hesitate to see him.
I was impressed with my original evaluation by Dr. Tom Toothaker and subsequent treatment by Physical Therapists Victoria, Josh, and Bill. My complaint of muscle spasms was targeted in treatment and resulted in an exercise program for me to follow to prevent similar symptoms in the future.
All the staff, including front desk folks, technicians and therapists were very pleasant and professional. I will recommend to others and return for treatment when/if necessary.
I was born with many handicaps and I once had a doctor in Norfolk, but my back never was right. I had car accident and I was told Dr. Jeffrey Carlson was the best. He has done three back surgeries for me and I have to tell you, I won’t let anyone touch me but Dr. Carlson ! He is the best!
I have had two knee replacements and one hip replacement and the other doctors at OSC did them. People ask me, “Cindy, how do you even move with all the rods and equipment ?” I tell them “go see these doctors and if you have back problems, go to Dr. Carlson. He has the hands of a angel and GOD gave him a gift!”
Whenever something happens, they get you right in for an appointment. All the staff are so kind. Take my advice and go to this office, you will not be sorry. I mean what I say, I tell everyone to go there.
I also want to give credit to the pain doctors also, because they are so nice. Dr. Raj Sureja.
You can’t do better than OSC. Thank you for letting me speak.
Dr. Jeffrey Carlson referred me to the OSC Pain Management Clinic and, having been there on a few occasions, I have filtered through most of the staff. Each and every time I have been there, it’s been a positive experience for me. All of the staff, from the reception area to the treatment areas, are professional, friendly and kind. The place is run like a well-oiled wheel.
