Review of Dr. Rosenberg


Dr Rosenberg messed up my operation and also the recovery at Emerg ortho was not what I needed. Today I am permanently on a walker unable to walk by myself and have found out recently that I can NEVER walk again on my own. This was all caused by Dr Rosenberg and the staff at Emerge ortho. I tell everyone I come in contact with to never go to emerg ortho.

Review of Dr. Romine

-Clayton , NC |

Dr. Romine is fantastic! His bedside manner is top notch and explains everything in great detail. He did my shoulder replacement and it’s perfect. No pain and norma range of motion. I will never see another orthopedic surgeon again ... he’s hands down the best

Review of Dr. Rosenberg

- |

I have very mixed feelings about Dr R. Yes he did extensive surg on my shoulder, eventually I recovered. His bedside manner was a bit abrupt, a bit vague, detached in his demeanor. The recovery process was a nightmare pure and simple. To this day i have unanswered questions- for example why the finding of a detached shoulder AFTER pt? This medical condition was NEVER once addressed or even made aware to me-the patient.

Review of Ashly Cook

- in Coats, NC |

I am seeing Ash at the Erwin location of EmergeOrtho for my knee. He has been top notch since day one. He takes time to explain things & answer questions. And he is THE BEST at giving injections. I was worried about pain, but Ash never pressured me or rushed me into a decision. I worried for no reason, Ash is precise and it was not painful at all. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Review of Dr. Romine

- in Smithfield nc |

Dr. Romine has treated me for a broken wrist 3 years ago. He did surgery to repair large forearm tendon tear. Now treating me for dislocated and fractured shoulder. He smiles is friendly his repair on my forearm was great. Know we will be seeing one another for a while now because of shoulder. Nervouse because pain is bad that I did alot of damage but have full confidence in his care.

Review of Dr. Romine

- in Apex, NC |

Dr. Romaine gave me back my life when he performed a perfect replacement on my right hip. Due to my weight, other surgeons would not even give me an appt in spite of the fact that I have no other medical problems. Dr. Romaine's experience in doing joint replacements on other obese patients and his compassion and intelligence allow him to look beyond the outdated "no elective surgeries for those with a BMI>40" philosophy. Thanks to this kind, skilled surgeon I no longer lie in bed day after day!

Review of Dr. Romine

- in Smithfield, NC |

I am 70 years old and have seen many orthopedics and have had several surgeries over the years. Dr. Romine is, in my opinion, the BEST and most PATIENT Orthopedic I have ever seen or been treated by. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic medical care.
