Review of Dr. Cooper

- |

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Cooper. Not only did he both quickly diagnose my pelvic discontinuity fracture, he performed revision surgery. Even though he had to put a cup cage in my pelvis and a special total hip replacement I have had the best recovery yet from surgery and was walking without a cane 2 1/2 weeks from surgery.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in New York, NY |

Dr. Shah replaced my left hip (which also had a fractured femur) on Sept. 11, 2018. He and his team at Columbia Presbyterian did an outstanding job and as of 10/1 I am easily walking with a cane (and often for a block or so without it) and all with only a minor tightness in the new joint. By next month I should be back to my full schedule of swimming and dancing. Thank you again Dr. Shah, I will continue to highly recommend you. Sincerely, Robert E. O'Melia

Review of Dr. Desai


I turned to Dr. Desai when my old orthopedist gave me one last option only: surgery. Dr. Desai has helped me avoid knee surgery and has worked diligently to my injury and arthritis issues. She is very personable and caring. If there is a doctor who can keep me out of the operating room, that is definitely her. I have had minor problems with some office matters (scheduling, insurance), but I am willing to live with them because of the excellent care Dr. Desai provides.

Review of Dr. Greisberg


Dr. Greisberg was excellent through all stages of the process. He identified all of my options and did not push surgery over non-surgical options. I chose surgery, and he was excellent - I have healed quickly. Dr. Greisberg was spot on in alerting me to how I would feel each day, week, and then each month during my recovery. I strongly recommend him to anybody.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in Yonkers, NY |

I would like to thank Dr. Shah for his excellent job . My total right knee replacement was successful. After a few days , with the help of the physical therapist who comes daily to our house , I can get up from bed by myself , walk using a cane and go up and down the eleven steps of our house. I can walk along the side walk a short distance from our house. I will continue having physical therapy in a PT facility and hopefully will be ready for the next surgery for my left knee .

Review of Dr. Greisberg

- in NY |

This doctor is more concerned about "consensus" with other doctors than helping patients. I brought in an MRI, the report read I had "at least a high grade posterior tibial tendon tear" and he wouldn't even open the MRI. I believe he only wants very easy cases at this point in his career. Very sad.
