My overall experience with Dr. Shaia was excellent. After several years of arthritis pain in my left hip and right knee, I'm now walking around pain-free. I'd certainly recommend him!

I went to Dr. Shaia for a hip replacement. He and his staff made me and my husband comfortable from the moment I walked in. I was given excellent information and tools to assist with this surgery. I am now 3 weeks out and doing so well. I highly recommend Dr. Shaia and his staff.

For those here who are upset with Dr. Shaia for his concern over your weight, please know that he only has your best interest in mind! His many years of experience in total joint replacement, has shown him which patients will have the best surgical outcome! This is NOT in anyway an insult, on the contrary, it’s for your benefit! There are other surgeons that will operate on anyone...wether they are good candidates, or not! These are the surgeons to stay away from!

I do recommend filling out the forms online that are emailed to you if you are having a procedure. It saves a lot of time when you get there. I was pleasantly surprised how smoothly the initial meeting went. Having never met Dr. Anthony Shaia I didn't know what to expect. Initially I wasn't sure either. He's pretty tough but I found him to be understanding of personal circumstances and by the time our first meeting was over I felt very comfortable with Dr. Shaia.

Dr. Anthony Shaia is an excellent and caring surgeon. I had a total knee replacement on 3/12/19 and am very pleased with the outcome. His entire staff is very competent and friendly. The pre-op class was very informative. We were given clear instructions after the surgery as how to best proceed to full recovery. Dr. Shaia answered all my questions and checked on me at home.It's been three weeks since my surgery. I am walking outside and am quite independent. I highly recommend Dr. Shaia. John

Dr. Shaia has always been good to my family. My grandmother had a successful knee replacement as did my aunt. He really took great care of them both. Now that I’m in need of a hip replacement, there was no question who to see. Knowlegbale, careing and patient. If you’re looking for a good Dr. he’s your man!

Dr. Shaia is very informative, nice and knowledgeable. I was not in a good mood when I initially met him but left out with a smile given my situation of two broken bones.

Fantastic job with hip replacement. Dr. Shaia checked on me several times since my surgery 4 weeks ago and promptly responded to my calls when I had questions. I’m coming along nicely and credit Dr. Shaia’s skill and caring for my quick progress.

He was attentive and explained my knee pain. I'm on the mends and hopefully will be back to doing the things I like to do without too much pain or maybe no pain!
