Review for Dr. Taylor

I have had the opportunity to see Dr. Bailey several times in the past decade. He is not only extremely competent, but also personable and kind.

Review for Dr. Bailey

Dr. Rogusky and his team are kind, compassionate, and trustworthy. They are the only team I trust with my Orthopedic care. Both of my knee replacements went VERY well and I am scheduled for a shoulder replacement soon. I KNOW I am in good hands!

Review for Dr. Rogusky

Dr. Rogusky is very thorough at consultations and does a great job explaining to his patients. He fixed my shoulder from a previous surgery. Not only did he repair the issue I was having, he took the extra time and effort to remove bone spurs and clean up arthritis. I would recommend him to anyone.

Review for Dr. Rogusky

Exceptional doctor. I live a distance from his office, but based on my meeting Dr Sobolewski during a procedure he did for my wife in Somerset I didn’t hesitate when I needed surgery on my knee. Highly recommended and I will return if I need any future procedure.
