I was very happy with the care I received from the Doctor & Nurses. This was my first surgery and they did an outstanding job.
Philadelphia, PA |
I had a total ankle reconstruction with Dr. Daniel and upon leaving surgery he claimed he had "never seen anything like it" but continued with the surgery. I now have permanent nerve damage in my foot and have needed two additional reconstructions to repair my ankle. Both surgeons state they he caused irreversible damage to my ligaments and tendons.

Dr. Daniel was wonderful! He was caring, friendly and very personable! :)
I met with Dr.Daniels for a consult after an ultrasound detected a nueroma incontinuity in my ankle along with my tarsal tunnel syndrome. He said my chance of success would be 40% however he wouldn't consider me a candidate because I'm a smoker. He felt my foot pain was stemming from my back and suggested Dr.Conliffe.After an MRI confirmed it's not my back- Dr. Conliffe's office staff told me he does not treat foot pain. I missed one return callback and have not heard back,left 3 messages.

Dr. Daniel is the best ortho I have ever had. He listens, he's concerned, he explains everything in everyday words. I have had this injury for 20 years now and I have to say he is the absolute best at what he does. I wish I would have found him earlier.

Williamstown, NJ |
My 1st review fell off this list so I want to update you. Never use this dr because if you have a complication out of his area of expertise, he cannot let go. I had an achilles repair 5 yrs ago for tears within my tendon. The incision split open at the 6th week. I was his guinea pig. He tried many times to repair it, only making it worse. 8 surgeries total. He wouldn't give the case to a wound dr. I now live with permanent nerve and muscle damage. I attend PT yearly to strengthen the foot & leg.

All of the staff have been beyond caring and patient with me. Dr. Daniel and Mallory are the best team - I trust them with my life. No complaints! I recommend Rothman all the time. I feel like family.
in Moorestown NJ |
I saw Dr. Daniels in May 2014 for a torn tendon and internal tear of the Achilles. He had told me the surgery would take 45 minutes, I had asked him to take 1 1/2 hours so we wouldn't have any problems. After the surgery I was in a lot of pain as to be expected. After the Meds were done I was still in severe pain, his office had told me it would take time. I was in a hard cast for 3-4 weeks that felt like my foot was going to rip through my skin. I've been dealing with NERVE damage sin
Dear Patient, Thank you for your feedback. We would love the opportunity to discuss your experience further. If interested, please contact us directly at 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

Dr DAniel is the most caring doctor I have ever had. I have had a lot of medical problems since I was born. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Barrington, NJ |
I just started seeing Dr. Daniel for a ankle problem. It was misdiagnosed by another Dr. and returned to Rothman where I have had great care by other doctors. Dr. D. showed a lot of care and attention to my injury and took time to explain and show me on the x-ray my problem and gave me options on how to clear up the problem. We set on the first option and will go from there.
in Moorestown, NJ |
Straight forward answers to questions. Gives mutiple options and assists in making the right choice. Easily accessible for questions. Beautiful surgical work.
