I was referred to Dr. Kaminsky for shoulder surgery. The surgery went well and the post surgery care was very good. Follow-up visit were outstanding. The front office and back offices were great and caring. Dr. Kaminsky made sure that my recovery and rehab were on schedule. Overall, each visit to Dr. Kaminsky's office was amazing. My time in the waiting area was very short and wait time in the exam room was approx. 5 minutes. I will use Dr. Kaminsky in the furture and I will highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr Kaminsky listens carefully to his patients and treats them with dignity and respect. He gives options for treatment and helps the patient select the best option for their situation. He is simply the best. His surgical techniques are the latest available and he chooses the least invasive methods possible. Dr Kaminsky is mindful of the procedure's cost to the patient as well as the recovery time and cost to the patient. I highly reccomend Dr Kaminsky, particularly for shoulder /rotator cuff procedures.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kaminsky and his office. Everyone that I came in contact with was effective, efficient, and above all, caring. Dr. Kaminsky, himself, was able to answer my questions about my knee surgery in such a way that made me feel at ease and confident that I had selected the right doctor for not only my knee but also any other orthopedic issues that I may currently have or develop in the future. He is one of the best doctors that I have ever worked with. I will definitely go back to him with any other orthopedic needs. He has my full confidence.

Dr. Kaminsky did an excellent job repairing the damage to my right shoulder 10 years ago so when I hurt my left shoulder I couldn't imagine going to anyone else and did an incredible job with the surgery, had a short recovery time do to his excellent surgical skills. Cant recommend home highly enough. Thank you to his entire team. 1st class
