I am now 7 months post surgery. It is amazing to feel this good. I had forgotten what it was like to live without pain. I still forget that I can now reach for the peanut butter on the top shelf effortlessly. My strength is still building, only weak in the rotator cuff. I shot…Read more.
First of all, I must say I chose Dr. Nazarian off the web site. That was truly the absolute best thing I could have done. I was very careful to read all of the reviews and, believe it or not, there was only one bad thing noted, so I chose him. I got an appointment…Read more.
Everyone walks into a doctor’s office and wants to be taken right away. Easier said than done. You have always been so nice to me. I have come to the practice, starting over 30 years ago. I really appreciate you, Dr. Palmer, and what you are trying to do to relieve my pain so I can…Read more.
I am 98 years old and over time, I have seen several orthopedists. Dr. Stacey Miller-Smith is by far, the best doctor that I have had. I particularly like her use of dry needling for trigger points. Thanks to her use of this technique, I no longer suffer from the pain of trigger points in…Read more.
I have been a patient of Dr. Song’s for over 3 years. I first started seeing him for shoulder pain in both of my shoulders due to osteoarthritis.

As a physician, I appreciated the professionalism and attention to detail that Dr. Vannozzi and the staff at Princeton Hospital demonstrated, making the decision to have an elective hip replacement.

My experience with Dr. Song: He is the kindest, most caring doctor. He actually saved my life. I am 76 years old and, for the last year, was in so much pain in my shoulder, I just did not want to live anymore. In August 2015, I was in the hospital with a pinched nerve…Read more.
This is my second experience with Dr. Song and, like the first one, amazing results. He and his staff, especially Ashley Reckdenwald, PA, was great, to say the least!

When our son, Garrett, mentioned he was having foot pain at the age of 13, we were understandably concerned.

I have been cared for by Dr. Ark on three separate occasions over the past 7 years: once for a broken heel I suffered in an automobile accident, once for surgery to remove a cyst from my finger and, most recently, for surgery to remove a tiny shard of glass from my hand (this was…Read more.

Dr. Vannozzi replaced my left hip in 10/2012 and my right hip this past 10/2015. In between, he was almost as frustrated as me with continuing left hip, back pain, and right hip pain. The right hip proved to be very deceptive. The first two MRIs did not present a need for surgery. The third…Read more.
Dr. Nazarian performed a spinal fusion on me in the Fall of 2013. This occurred between a left hip replacement in 2012 and a right hip replacement in 2015.

Thanks to Dr. Hasan, and ESWT, I am pain-free.…Read more.
Dr. Song came highly recommended by my sports medicine orthopaedist. I had a bad tear in my rotator cuff, a bone spur, and he found an old tear in my biceps. He took the time to explain everything to me. I was very nervous about the procedure but the people that work at the Surgery…Read more.
Clearly, had 3 snapped rotator cuff muscles caused by 2 great accidents while vacationing in Costa Rica.

I came to see Dr. Ark after another orthopedist had basically brushed me off after prescribed physical therapy did not help. X-rays had been performed, and I was told that they could try cortisone injections, but that was all they would recommend because they did not think that I needed to consider therapy. Once the…Read more.

Dr. Miller-Smith is an outstanding clinician. She listens well, asks multiple questions, suggests various methods for treatment, and follows through on outcome. At 68, I rarely find physicians who give me the kind of respect she does. As we age, I find too often my complaints are dismissed. Dr. Miller-Smith treats women with the same…Read more.
I can’t say enough good things about the care and the attention I received from Dr. Palmer. I have degenerative joint disease and problems variously with my spine, hips, and shoulders.
