Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had hip replacement in the spring of 2017 and chose the surgical center in Carteret in lieu of Hanckensack University Hospital. I went home at 5:00 the same day of the procedure after physical therapy reviewed how to navigate stairs . The center is extraordinarily well organized . It is obvious they are well versed with regard to what needs to be accomplished within the time frame they work with. They ensure that patients are discharged with the knowledge they need to continue recovery.

Waking up again w/severe unbearable pain in knee so I HAD to review. Spent 10 min with me. Told me everything was fine. I have never been to a specialist that did not review the MRI. Just simply read the reports. Told me knee was fine, yet I can barely put pressure on it, sometimes it just slips out from under me. PLUS, Both my hips have severe necrosis, many doctors told me I need replacements. I have to believe he dismissed me due to my immune system issues which would complicate surgery.

I had a hip revision done by Dr. Levine and I had a great experience. I had complete trust in him from the first visit and he did not disappoint. I would highly recommend him. His assistants were wonderful and supportive also. The office was clean and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Levine is a great doctor and I was fortunate that he was the one who did my surgery.
