My experience at UOA with Dean Pinciotti was exceptional. I worked with my therapist Dean over the last 12 weeks as I rehabbed my shoulder after surgery. Dean is very professional and personable. My all around experience with UOA surgery and rehab was remarkable. All the therapists and office staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend family and friends if they are looking for excellent care.
I chose UOA rehabilitation center following a left knee surgery for a meniscus tear repair. I loved the concept that my physician is part of this group and that my therapist and doctor can interact and see all reports and imaging results. When I came in I was in a lot of pain after just two weeks of surgery and depended on crutches to walk. Dean my therapist, evaluated me and set goals for me along the way to recovery. I have come to appreciate all the "hard" work and now I feel pretty good.
I wanted to take the time to write this testimonial because I felt it was the very least I could do to thank Dr. Kayiaros and his PA, Lauren Stull, for all they did for me! I will be forever grateful to them for giving me my mobility back. In early October 2017, I had the anterior approach left hip replacement surgery. Five years earlier, I had the posterior approach on my right hip by a different doctor (now retired) and what a difference in my pain level, my recovery and my immediate mobility because of the anterior approach and Dr. K's skill. I would suggest the anterior approach to anyone for whom it's viable! I was discharged from the hospital the next day after the surgery and was a little tentative but I was able to walk to my bedroom, that night, to the second floor! In home P.T. started the following day and lasted two weeks until outpatient PT. Even still, I was able to get around in my home very well and the pain was very tolerable. I do have a high tolerance for pain but this was SO much less pain than with the posterior approach. From the moment, my wife and I went to UOA, we really loved it. You will notice a huge difference like we did. The entire process of paperwork, scheduling of appointments, pre-surgery paperwork, the surgery, etc., is managed SO well. It's really unlike any other doctor's office I've been to. Of course, having surgery and preparing for it, can be very stressful. UOA took that stress away. In addition, we had a few questions prior to the surgery and ALWAYS received a prompt call back from Dr. K's efficient PAA (who's name escapes me right now but she was wonderful too). This office is a well-oiled machine!! It is now three months past my surgery and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. I am so glad that I found such a wonderful surgeon to relief all the pain I was suffering with. I'm back to being out and about and able to enjoy life and walking without pain any more. Lauren was also very compassionate and kind. She gives you all the time needed to ask/answer questions and you don't feel rushed in any way while in their offices. I am so pleased with my outcome and it's my pleasure to recommend and suggest that you contact Dr. Kayiaros' office if needed!!
From beginning to end, my experience has been incredible. I was so afraid of having back surgery, but Dr. Chiappetta was so kind and put my fear to ease. The surgery team was incredible, as well. They kept me comfortable the entire procedure. My six weeks of rehab with Jess were a terrific experience. She rebuilt my strength and now I’m off, back into a world I knew 15 years ago - virtually pain free. Thank you.
I had a knee replacement in April. I started physical therapy in May. In July I am now able to walk, climb stairs and am able to perform my daily tasks. Kristine is a great therapist. She would always encourage me. Everyone at University Orthopaedic Associates is great.
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!!
Thank you to the AMAZING staff and UCAS for your assistance with my husbands back surgery with Dr. McDonnell. Amanda, Janice and Susan will forever be embedded in our minds for catering to my husband and easing his fears while maintaining extreme professionalism! I never thought the surgical process could possibly run so smooth! I cant thank you all enough!! I wish you all the best and thank you for EVERYTHING.
Dr. Kayiaros is one of the best doctors in my 78-year-old medical experience. He is caring, thoughtful, and his credentials are beyond impeccable. He has a wonderful personality to go with his expertise as a doctor. He listens, explains, and wants to make sure the patient understands what will occur. I had a hip replacement and I think he is absolutely one of the best doctors i've ever encountered. He is so personable and has a fine sense of humor...no orthopaedic surgeon ego! Couldn't recommend him more highly!
