Back in "Rock and Roll" Shape

Restoring an Athlete’s Quest for Body Perfection

I would highly recommend

I want to compliment every person I came in contact with today of the staff at UOA! Everyone is pleasant, friendly, experienced and professional. As a former facility property manager overseeing 1600 employees, this is also my professional opinion. I would highly recommend Dr. McDonnell for any need!

Feel Better Than I Have in Years

I had been dealing with serious back issues for many years. I'd seen several doctors and had done PT, epidurals, injections and saw no improvement. Surgery was suggested and we came to Dr. Chiappetta for a 2nd opinion. He suggested a laminectomy and spinal fusion. My recovery has been amazing. Six months post-op I was able to take a 10 mile walk!!! There has been little pain and I feel better than I have in years. Thanks to Dr. Chiappetta, RWJUH and everyone involved.

I have been treating for the last two years with many doctors and from the moment I contacted UOA to the moment I left their offices I was treated as though I was the most important patient that ever walked through their doors.  The staff was not only patient, kind, understanding and listened to me, but very professional and polite.  The staff was dressed professionally and used social graces.  The physician, Dr. McDonnell was very patient, listened to me and explained to me exactly what our course of procedure was going to be.  Out of the last three orthopedic practices I have frequented in the Monmouth County area, this is by far the best practice I have treated at and I will continue to treat at this practice and refer not only my family and friends, but also my clients and future clients.  I could not recommend this facility any more highly!!!

I had been in pain for over 2 years and had many shots and have taken many medications. It wasn't until I was referred to Dr.McDonnell by my pain management Dr. that I finally found hope for relief of the pain I was feeling in my neck and arm. I saw Dr McDonnell and as soon as he saw my MRI he knew I needed surgery ASAP to get any real relief from the pain I was having. His office scheduled my surgery two weeks from the day I met with him.

Today is day 3 after surgery I have some soreness but the pain in my arm is gone! Dr McDonnell is the best if you have pain please don't wait and call his office to get a appt. With him he will make you feel like yourself again. HE IS THE BEST AND ONE OF THE BEST CHOICES I EVER MADE WAS TO MEET WITH HIM. THANK YOU DR MCDONNELL!


I have seen over the past years, Dr. Doumas for my elbow injury, and Dr. Chiappetta for back and neck. I am now seeing Dr. Swan for my knee. All are excellent and I highly recommend this group of doctors.
Dr. Swan takes time explaining all procedures and is attentive to all of my problems. I am not an "easy" patient to deal with, but he is very understanding and puts my mind at ease. With Dr. Swan, I feel three is no need for another opinion. I have total confidence in his ability .

I recently had back surgery at UOA. I did my PT upstairs from the doctor’s office. It was a wonderful experience. My therapist was excellent. She was pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable and helped me so much. I recuperated so well from my PT that in 2 months I felt like a new person. I will definitely use them again in the future.

From the minute I made an appointment with their knowledgeable staff, I felt comfortable. As a new patient, my wait time was extremely short!! I was greeted as soon as I walked into their Somerset office and treated with such professionalism. The staff is extremely caring and polite. I was treated by Dr. McDonnell for my lower back. When he said I needed an MRI, who would've guessed that an MRI and physical therapy and a surgery center is all under the same roof? There was no running around for tests. I was extremely nervous the day of my surgery, however the staff at UCAS and UOA assisted me in every way possible to make sure I was okay. Thank you, Dr. McDonnell and staff for giving me my life back! I'm now able to play basketball with my son and pick up my one-year-old daughter. Team UOA!!
