"After 2 months of intensive physical rehabilitation, I 'graduated' to strength and fitness training and am still 'pumping iron' and enjoying it! "
"After surgery with Dr. Craig, I felt another person. Thanks to Dr. Craig and to HSS, I can move my arm, do all kinds of chores, and play with my grandkids."
" I have told all who will listen about the Hospital for Special Surgery. It was more than good care, it was superb care."
"I could say - "professional, sanitary, careful, responsive, graceful, esprit de corp, smiling""
"Dr. MacGillivray is clearly very knowledgeable in his specialty. He is confident in what he diagnoses & with his prognosis. He is clear & concise with what he says. The appointments go very quickly, but if you forget to ask any questions directly to the doctor, you can always call the office & they will assist. We were also very satisfied with HSS. We needed to go there for MRI's & for 2 surgeries. It is a well-oiled machine: from the doorman to the intake personnel to the nurses to the aftercare personnel. Everyone knows their job completely."
"Although my surgery may be considered minor by some, neither Dr. Elliott nor HSS treated me with any less care or attention. The pride which everyone takes is palpable. "
"I fell and broke my ankle during hurricane Irene while upstate. We were stranded by the flood and I was evacuated by Army helicopter on Monday after the storm to a local hospital where they operated on part of my ankle on Tuesday. I transferred to HSS on Friday where I met with Dr. David Helfet and his team. The first thing they said to me after reviewing my X-rays was "you need us and we will fix this.""
