      Saw injury. Finger cut in half, broken bone, tendon, joint blown open, and nerve in tatters. I thought the worst. Dr. Topal reassured me; got me into surgery right away. Her skillful work over the next 4 hours knit the pieces back together, under microscope, painstakingly and with exacting attention to detail. Dr. Topal resurrected my right hand which I depend for my livelihood. And her detailed stitches and care in repairing the cut have left me 7 weeks later with a normal hand! She cares.
      in Northampton, MA |
      Dr. Topal is an excellent doctor. She has great knowledge and expertise. Dr. Topal put me at ease almost immediately with an excellent bedside manner. Her staff is very welcoming and also reassuring. I am very grateful also that she accepted my insurance and fortunate that I was able to get on her cancellation list to be treated by her!

      Why Does Experience Matter?
