Philadelphia, PA |
I was hit by an SUV while crossing the street and Dr. Kearns put my elbow back together, which required 3 surgeries. I am very satisfied with Dr. Kearns' treatment and have already recommended him, and the Hand Center in general, to many people. In addition, he was always a pleasure to deal with.

It was clear to me from our first meeting that Dr. Kearns is a person with a great deal of empathy for his patients and for people in general. His communication with me was excellent, and I never once doubted that I was receiving the best care available. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. K to anyone.

Excellent doctor and surgeon

Dr. Kearns performed reconstructive surgery on my left torn bicep. He did an excellent job. My recovery time was fairly quick, and now I'm back at the gym benching and curling. There is no question that if I suffered another injury I would return to Dr. Kearns.

From my first visit with Dr. Kearns i knew that I have chosen the right doctor for the replacement of my right shoulder, I was convinced that this doctor was going to heal my pain. After the surgery i listened to his recommendations and in only week nine of the procedure I now have full extension and motion and no discomfort at all. I am planning to have my right shoulder replaced in the near future and will again have Dr. Kearns perform the operation. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone.

Dr Kearns performed my shoulder surgery a couple a years ago I had no problems with left since. I was hoping to find because I'm having issues with the other shoulder . I find out that is no longer with ORlin & Cohen. Great physician, very caring .

Skilled surgeon. However loses points due to the fact that during office visits, he seems more engaged with his iPhone than with the patient. Note this is the experience from his former practice at OCOA on Long Island in NY.
