What People Say About Dr. Joshua Dines, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
OUTSTANDING! I've dealt with a partially torn rotator cuff for about 3 years, 2 different orthopedists, before I was referred to Dr. Dines. From the very first visit he told me exactly what I needed to do, and still respected my decision to do another round of therapy before deciding on surgery. After another round of unsuccessful therapy I opted for the surgery. I had surgery 12/26/18 and started therapy 1/7/19. Through consistent therapy and follow up appointments, Dr. Dines told me by July 4 I would forget I ever had surgery. HE WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. My arm feels better than it has in years. Dr. Dines, his PA Matt, office assistant, and the whole HSS staff were amazing. I HIGHLY recommend.

D.r Joshua Dines and the whole team at hospital for Special surgery were amazing. My mother had rotator cuff surgery they were so friendly, caring, and helpful. Dr. Dines answered all our questions, didn't make us feel rushed and the whole team was simply awesome!

Dr Dines is awesome!! I had constant shoulder dislocations over 10 years but I am so glad I decided to see Dr Dines! He is amazing. He doesn’t waste your time, as soon as you arrive, you are called in. He explained everything and did a repair surgery to my labrum. There were no complications and the incisions are so small, and barely noticeable! I would definitely recommend Dr Dines to anyone. He has solid expertise and impeccable bedside manner. Overall a phenomenal doctor.

I am very disappointed in dr dines cursory post surgical assessment -surgical assessment and his disinterest in attempting to diagnose my post surgery concerns. I sincerely regret that I used dr dines as a surgeon. Albeit, i am concerned about how profoundly dr dines patient care abilities have been diminished with his recent loss of his long termPA, Brynn, I don’t think any post-surgical patient should need to be subject to such poor quality/cursory care. However, Dr Joshua dines is very

I highly recommend Dr. Dines. He repaired my son's labrum. Although he seemed rushed, he really did take time to explain my son's condition and walk us through the different options. By the time he finished, we felt very comfortable moving forward with the surgery. He did a great job. We were extremely happy with him and with HSS. Great experience! High recommend!

Very easy to speak with. Really seems to know his stuff. I had surgery for my torn meniscus on Monday. I went home on crutches Monday afternoon. But Tuesday morning, I was walking up and down the stairs in my house unassisted. I was driving by Wednesday and back to work today (Thursday). While I hope to never have to have surgery again, if I do, it will be with Dr. Dines.
