Review of Dr. Ackerman

- |

I would say, 19.7 out of 20. Nobody is perfect. I would take .3 out of 20 because she’s not always on time and that’s part of the rating. But if your priority is recovering from an injury and receiving the physical and moral support you need, then you are in the hands of someone whose life’s work is dedicated to your empowerment and recovery, day to day. My experience is coming out not just with optimal and top-notch medical treatment (between her AND her PA who is highly compassionate, trustworthy, and qualified), but with hope that I didn’t have before as well, when the process seems neverending and impossible. This is another level of care which is rare to find. I’ve never left a review for a doctor before, and this felt necessary. I’ve experienced many sports injuries, and cant imagine being referred to get an MRI by anyone else.

Review of Dr. Kocher

- in rutherford, NJ |

Dr Kocher did a meniscus repair and acl reconstruction (hamstring graft) on my 16 year old daughter 3 weeks ago. She is walking (she has a limp but the surgery was only 3 weeks ago so that is expected) and pain free. God bless this doctor, he did a great job.

Review of Dr. Kocher


Daughter did not have a great consultation with him. Once he determined her ACL was fine, he wasn’t too interested in her knee pain.

Review of Dr. Kocher


Dr. Kocher replaced my 8 year old's torn ACL - we are 1 year out and the results have been nothing short of extraordinary. She has returned to playing sports (skiing, basketball, softball, gymnastics) and you'd never know she tore her ACL. She is experiencing no pain and has full range of motion / full strength. Our research showed Dr. Kocher as a real pioneer in the field of ACL repair in growing children and we're extremely thankful that his results matched what our research showed.

Review of Dr. Kocher


Dr Kocher, not only fixed my daughters knee that had been operated on (unsuccessfully) by others, but restored her confidence We didn’t think she would walk normally without pain, she is now competing at the highest levels. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO DR KOCHER AND HIS STAFF!!!!!!!

Review of Dr. Kocher


Dr Kocher is amazing! He was able to improve my daughters life with his surgical skills. He was patient, understanding and most importantly extremely competent. He listened and addressed all our concerns. We think he has a magic touch!...he could identify things by just feeling around her knee! He was well worth the wait and I would highly recommend him to everyone, and I do! I can not thank him enough for the incredible surgery that changed my teenager's life!

Review of Dr. Bae


I have had problems with my shoulder for many years. Dr. Bae was the only doctor to really help me. He truly cares about his patients and does what is best for recovery. Eventually, I got to the point where surgery was best, but my dad was on the fence. Dr. Bae took the time to schedule an appointment that week to meet with me and my parents. He explained exactly what was wrong with my shoulder, why he honestly believed surgery was the best option and exactly what he would do in the surgery.

Review of Dr. Geminiani


Dr. Geminiani worked hard to not only diagnose my injuries, but also help me to understand WHY they happened and how to prevent them. She is incredibly knowledgable and caring. I felt at ease knowing that she was looking out for my best interests.
