Dr. Kaminsky put me back together again. My arm was dislocated from my shoulder due to a fall. What I appreciate most (outside of being an outstanding surgeon) about Dr. Kaminsky and the office staff at that time is that they were patient and kind. I had never been through surgery and I felt care for by Dr. Kaminsky and the staff. I highly recommend Dr. Kaminsky. I have 100% usage of my shoulder, which is remarkable.

Friendly staff and doctor. Listens and cares. Would definitely recommend him for surgery and go with the stem cells. It’s worth the extra cost.

I have now had both shoulders replaced, both by Dr. Kaminsky. Choosing Dr.Kaminsky, was the best decision I have ever made. I am an avid (daily) golfer. When Dr. Kaminsky replaced my right shoulder in 2018, I was back playing everyday golf 35 days from my surgery date. The shoulder is pain free and I can do anything with it that I like. This February, Dr. Kaminsky replaced my left shoulder. Within 2 weeks, I was out practicing putting. In week 3, I was hitting shots on the range up to 100 yards. By day 28, I was back to playing daily golf again. I am pain free, and Thanks to Dr.Kaminsky, I am enjoying my life again. Dr. Kaminsky is a fabulous doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing shoulder repair. I thank God for leading me to this fantastic surgeon.

Very friendly, awesome ‘bed side’ manners for Doc K. He’s down to earth with his patients (at least he was on my behalf). The therapists’ at his office were great as well and very friendly!!! Made it a comfortable experience!!

Dr. Kaminsky was a wonderful shoulder surgeon. I had a work injury and had lost alot of function in my right arm. Dr. Kaminsky made sure that everything was taken care of prior to surgery like meds that would be required afterwards and a ice machine. The staff called to check on me the day after the surgery to make sure everything was okay. Dr. Kaminsky made sure my shoulder was better before he released me to go back to work. He always took time to listen and was very thorough. I cant even tell where the surgery was done very microscopic incisions. He even gave me ointment to help with scar reduction . He made sure I had plenty of physical therapy which has helped. He has given me a new shoulder. I would like to thank Dr. Kaminsky and his staff for doing such a great job during all of the pandemic. You are wonderful and thanks for the new shoulder.

Upon entering the physician's examining room, I was met by a radiology technician, female. As I was unable to remove my upper garment or the sling that supports my arm, following major surgery on my shoulder, I asked for help and was loudly and rudely refused. When I told Dr Kaminski, he said "Oh goodness". Upon attempting to file complaint with office manager, I was told she was too busy.

Dr. Kaminsky is the best - surgeon & diagnostician! He quickly identified the issues with my shoulder and provided me options and ultimately a surgical remedy for my torn rotator cuff, labrum tear, calcification, and bone spurs. As a single digit handicap (golf), my shoulder injury significantly impeded ability to play golf. After only none (9) weeks, my range of motion is near 100% and the pain is minimal. I would highly recommend him to any athlete with chronic shoulder problems. The office physical therapy staff, Nolan & Kayla, are caring, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable and have been instrumental in my continued progress. Thank you Dr. Kaminsky!

Dr. Kaminsky has done rotator cuff repair on both of my shoulders, several years apart. Due to a fall and fracture, my second surgery required additional treatment to repair the shoulder. He was very clear when explaining the diagnosis, method of treatment and options. My recovery and PT has been excellent. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kaminsky did my shoulder surgery 3 months ago. His expertise in his field was evident from the first visit to my last visit. The whole experience was great. He and his staff do an excellent job from the diagnosis, the procedure, and the post-operative care. I would recommend Dr. Kaminsky to anyone needing treatment, including surgery for any shoulder issues. I am thankful that he was recommended to me.

Dr. Kaminsky is an expert at a variety of micro-arthroscopic surgeries - one of the top in the country! He recently repaired my torn rotator cuff, torn labrum and torn bicep in my shoulder. I’m a 63 year old active woman and thrilled with the recovery time compared to horror stories I’ve heard about with other doctors. It’s been just under 4 months since my surgery and I’ve been released from PT and follow-up doc appts! He’s the BEST and has a great bedside manner.

Dr. Kamisky has a great “bedside manner” and treats you as a part of the team. By that I mean he talks to you not like he is above you and details all treatment options and lets you have input.

Dr. Kaminsky did rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder 4 months ago. (Before the surgery I had excruciating pain.) I am blessed to report I am now completely pain free in that shoulder. Dr. K is the best!

If you have osteoarthritis pain and need help, please read this! I saw Dr. Kaminsky for severe knee pain. I was certain that surgery was needed. Dr. Kaminsky discussed several treatments options with me. One of those was a stem cell injection. I was hesitant due to cost. However, Dr. Kaminsky charges substantially less than other published charges I had seen. The stem cell injection was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Virtually painless. Took maybe 10 seconds. At my 4-week follow-up, my range of motion was good, experiencing only infrequent minor pain, no more joint crackling or rattling! I’m now 6 weeks out and doing great. I’ll probably return soon for my other knee. Dr. Kaminsky spends as much time with patients as needed and honestly answers all questions. Highly recommend! Both he and his staff are knowledgeable with a great “bed side manner.”

All my visits were done with excellence. I was amazed how quickly I healed. I did not experience any of the horror stories I had heard about having shoulder surgery. I did my PT there and they were so kind and patient with me.
