Since my surgery November 10, 2020 with Dr. John Burrow, I have been going to Physical Therapy since Dec. 3, 2020. The Therapist was Dr. Cody Leeworthy and LPTAs Joshua Hancock and Jonathan Lorusso. I was seen mostly by Cody or Joshua. Each visit, I would discuss my areas of concern and they would listen and address to the best of their ability.
My exit patient survey was with Dr. Tom Toothacker and I informed him how all staff were professional and pleasant. He appreciated me speaking with him because as he stated “usually people only complain” and if need be, I should contact him if I need further assistance.
I have had pain in both knees for several years and had knee arthroscopies in the past. Even after I retired, I continued to work in my own lawn care business and the pain continued. I finally made an appointment with Dr. Boyd Haynes to see what could be done. He found bone-on-bone and told me that I would know when I needed to have knee replacement surgery. I was convinced and scheduled my first surgery for January of 2020. With Dr. Haynes’ expertise and my ,hard work with Physical Therapy (PT), I was back to normal walking, range of motion without pain.
This past January, I had my left knee replaced and again, with his skill and PT, I didn’t need a walker, just a cane at first, then he measured me and I had 0-degree extension and well over 100-degree flexion. He was pleased as was I, and am now working as before surgery, but without pain in my knees.
Even though I am 74 and a diabetic, I was able to maintain good Blood Sugar levels throughout.

Thank you, Dr. Haynes for your care and expertise in bringing me back to better mobility and pain free knees. My advice is to not wait too long and do what the doctor tells you, work hard and you, too, can, in return, have the knees of your youth!
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.

Dr. Tom Toothaker is an excellent listener. He put a good plan in place for my treatment and placed me in the capable hands of Jonathan Lorusso, PTA. I believe the therapy pointed out exercises to help me at home to continue building the strength in my back.
I thank each of the assistants that helped me in my journey.
My name is Catherine Reid, I would like to thank Tom Toothaker, DPT. Joshua Hancock, LPTA and Fred Wintermantel PTA, for their care doing my rehabilitation at Orthopedic & Spine Center.
I was treated for pain in my left shoulder, which made it impossible to complete my normal physical duties and daily activities that I was accustomed to doing.
After eight weeks of rehabilitation, I have been able to resume all my my normal activities without pain. I was made comfortable at each session and was assisted with the best professional care and concern from each Therapist and their assistant.
I would recommend OSC to anyone needing Physical Therapy for any reason. I am truly thankful for the treatment, the healing and personal training that I received. Catherine Reid
My name is Anthony Alter. Between Dr. Cody Leeworthy, PTA Bill Richards and the staff, I had excellent care and they concentrated on my needs. My back is a mess from scoliosis, and they worked on teaching me exercises to help strengthen my back muscles with the goal of reducing the pain.
I look forward to each session, I have spent 41 years at a desk job so a lot of muscles need work. I would recommend then to everyone.
At the age of 81 years young, I had full knee replacement surgery, performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes in March of 2020. I was very nervous about everything and waited a few years too long to have the surgery. Looking back, I wonder why I was so nervous. Dr. Haynes and his team were very patient in walking me and my family through the entire process. They leave nothing out and my surgery and recovery went great!
I went home on the same day of the surgery. Everything that morning went exactly as Dr. Boyd described. Both of my sons accompanied me to the hospital on the day of my surgery. They told me later that Dr. Haynes met with them immediately after the surgery, explaining how it went, answered their questions and told them when they would be able to see me.
Being able to go home the day of my surgery was great. On the second day, I was up and walking with a walker. At this point of my recovery, I began my PT and in home exercises. Dr. Boyd’s primary directive for the best chances of a full recovery was simple and straight forward, “do your PT and follow up exercises”. My PT was conducted at home because of Covid-19; all of the in-home Physical Therapist’s and nurses were wonderful to work with. My exercises and PT began on day two. With my daughter-in-law acting as my at home PT coach, she ensured I followed Dr. Boyd’s primary directive. This is not the most fun thing you will experience, but you will make progress each day.
My final follow up with Dr. Haynes was completed in early March 2021. I am now pain free in my knee. I am able to walk, go up and down steps without the use a cane or walker. I’m enjoying myself again with family and friends and have Dr. Haynes and his entire team to thank for that.
I highly recommend Dr. Haynes and the OSC Physical Therapy team. I would be remiss if I failed to mention Dr. Haynes’s Physician Assistant, Chris Schwizer. He was also wonderful to work with and always made me feel I was in great hands. Dr. Haynes’s team, their professionalism, bedside manner and his cheerful laugh lets you know he cares.
I 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!
If 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.
Dr. Mark Mcfarland is AWESOME. Dr. McFarland’s bedside manner, and the time he takes to talk and explain items to his patients is fantastic, and his skills as a surgeon are beyond words. Dr. McFarland recently performed Spine Surgery on my lower back and I am currently 3 months post surgery. I cannot express enough my gratitude to Dr. McFarland. I have had total relief from the pain and numbness I had been experiencing, and I am able to accomplish all the physical actions that I had been unable to do for a long time.
Thank you to Dr. McFarland and the entire staff.
