At POA We Value Our Patients
I chose the services of Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, PA, for the outstanding services and optimal results from treatment by Dr. Arik Mizrachi. Dr. Mizrachi asks all the right questions which require detailed answers to my health issues over the past few years. He gets to the heart of my issues quickly. He prescribed MRIs and x-rays which confirmed his prognosis and highlighted other issues which Dr. Mizrachi immediately acted upon. He prescribed PT sessions, and when we assessed the positive results of that, he generously prescribed additional PT which solved my issues. He generously offered samples of medicine which resulted in optimal results combined with the PT. Dr. Mizrachi has an excellent bedside manner; he offers insightful professional opinion in a lively interactive discussion which I can understand as a patient. He offered multiple solutions/options for treatment of my issues, and while we completed a successful procedure initially with short term results, we found an optimal solution for long range treatment through a new prescription combined with an active exercise regimen. I highly recommend Dr. Mizrachi’s services for hip and lower back issues for an optimal quality of life.
I would just like to let you know Dr. Mizrachi how lucky I am to have you for my doctor, after having had a very bad experience with a prior doctor. I know that it will take a while for my condition to improve. I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful attitude you have towards me, that I feel very optimistic that my disc and back problems will get better with all help and advice towards me.
You have become one of the biggest names around my family and friends. I am always telling everyone what a wonderful person you are and that I have nothing but respect and admiration for you. I hope that you have continued success with your practice and in all things that life will come your way.
To say thank you is not enough to try to explain how I feel about you. I wish for the best of everything for you: good health and a good life. I am always praying for the best of everything for you. You make me feel like I have a second home when I visit your office.
Following a sports injury in June 2014 and a subsequent MRI, I was diagnosed with a large cervical disc herniation at C5-6. My spinal cord was severely compressed causing myelopathy and stenosis. Dr. Nazarian performed anterior cervical fusion and discectomy surgery in September. From our first meeting through the post -surgery follow-ups, he was caring, compassionate and took the time to explain everything in great detail. He was always accessible and willing to answer my questions, and possesses a great bedside manner. I can’t imagine that I could have been in better hands and would highly recommend Dr. Nazarian.
From the first scheduled appointment to the last one, everyone was professional and very helpful. This was my third surgery done here and they were all handled the same way. Susan Rutledge (Dr. Moskwa’s surgical secretary) was very helpful, as usual. The people at the Surgical Center were also great. In closing, I would like to say that from the girl at the desk to the doctor, it was a pleasure to deal with courteous and professional people. It shows that Dr. Moskwa cares about his patients.
I have dealt with a lot of physicians in my time. Never have I met someone as kind and caring as Dr. Nazarian. He called me at home after surgery to see how I was feeling. His staff is kind and caring. We never wait long to see him. When he schedules you for an appointment, he is on time. Since using him, we have referred people to the office. He is a great doctor and genuinely kind person. ONE OF THE BEST.
Kind, considerate, caring, charming and, most of all, gifted. All of these words describe Dr. Brian Vannozzi. He has a calm command of his profession – even in the trauma room at the ER. My family’s confidence in Dr. Vannozzi was bolstered by his rock-star level academic and professional credentials. It was my good fortune that he was on duty the day I broke my hip.
While hanging my bird feeders, my stepstool gave-way, and I fell on my left side. I realized that I broke my wrist. My orthopedic surgeon at Princeton Plainsboro Hospital was Dr. David Lamb who immediately fixed me up without any wait time! I followed up with POA. My surgeon was Dr. Marc J. Lamb, who continued with my care. Dr. Marc Lamb explained my options, along with the healing process, so I opted to go with surgery for a faster recovery.
My experience at POA was great. The first thing I noticed is how spacious the layout of the waiting room is. The receptionist who helped me was friendly and made me feel welcome. When Dr. Marc Lamb introduced himself to me, I realized that not only was he the brother of the doctor who initially helped me in the ER, but I discovered that Dr. Marc Lamb’s personality is phenomenal! He explained my options and the length of time for the healing process on both procedures. I wasn’t nervous as I knew I was in GREAT hands. The surgery went well and the healing process was exactly what Dr. Marc Lamb explained.
In closing, I will continue to refer my friends and family to POA to see Dr. Marc Lamb. He is a phenomenal surgeon with an awesome personality whom I trust and respect. I have, and will, continue to refer my friends and family to POA for all their orthopedic needs.

Dr. Vannozzi is, without a doubt, the finest surgeon any patient could hope to have. In the past 2 years, he has provided me with two new hips and each operation has been a qualified success. This time, I was discharged from the hospital after 2 nights and a nurse came to my house on 2 occasions. An excellent physical therapist, Hazel, also came to the house and worked with me for 1 week. After 16 days, Dr. Vannozzi cleared me to drive and I am now doing 4 weeks of outpatient PT.
All aspects of my operation – before and after – have been quite magnificent. I did not need any equipment, as I had it from my first operation on the opposite hip, two years ago. I did not use a walker or crutches and was free-walking after 5 days. I see Dr. Vannozzi again in December, hen he says he will clear me to ski in Colorado in January where I am a ski and snowshoe guide.
The best medical advice I have been given was to get a second opinion regarding the scheduled amputation of two toes, following osteomyelitis and poor outcome from attempted surgical debridement by another physician. Dr. Levine was sure he could salvage the situation and I had surgery performed by him to more aggressively fight the infection.
Sure enough, his word was true. He is an excellent clinician with extraordinary skills. As a physician assistant, I now refer all my patients requiring orthopedic intervention to Princeton Orthopaedics and, specifically, to Dr. Levine for foot issues. This is a wonderfully run practice!
It was time for a total hip replacement, and I knew that a successful outcome depended on the skill of the surgeon and his team. I took the time to check out several highly-regarded joint replacement programs, and chose Dr. Vannozzi. I couldn’t have made a better choice. Dr. V’s surgical skill and my amazing recovery surpassed my highest expectations. I have not come across anyone who had such a great experience and as full a recovery as I have had.
Through pre-op, the surgery, and postop care, Dr. V. and the POA team were more than helpful in taking the time to provide complete information on all aspects of the surgical process, from scheduling, insurance, to home care. They made the process as smooth and easy to navigate as it could be.
I am looking forward to having my second hip replacement shortly, and am confident that my care and recovery will, again, be outstanding. The facilities and care that I received at UMCPP couldn’t be better – it was world class. I am so grateful to Dr. Vannozzi for his caring manner, up-to-date information, and surgical skills. He has enabled me to again live pain-free and regain my life. Thank you, Dr. Vannozzi.
