Wrist Surgery
I had an ulnar shortening bone osteotomy performed on each of my wrists in 2018. Stephanie Sweet performed the surgeries, which were both successful and life changing. She is an expert in her field and all of the employees at the Wilow Grove location are kind and knowledgeable. Thanks again for all of your help!

Dr. Sweet does not give her patients enough time. I had an initial visit with her to discuss surgery for my carpal tunnel syndrome. She made me feel so hurried and uncomfortable asking her questions. When she did, she did so in a condescending way. I left her office crying and am switching to another hand surgeon recommended by my neurologist.

If I could give a zero I would. Dr. Sweet triple booked patients for my time slot last week...then got upset with me when I was concerned that I had to sit for a half an hour after showing up on time. Then today, the second visit was even ruder. Called me yesterday to come in earlier than my appointment...then would not see me stating it was because I came early. I finally left after 1.25 hours in the wait room! The gatekeeper, a curly brunette might me the rudest woman of all. Nasty woman! Karma will get her. I pulled my records and made an appoint at another Doctor who hopefully respects the patients time as much as their own. Very disappointed in Dr. Sweet and her staff for being rude and unprofessional. Will never go there again.

The best orthopedic hand surgeon ever! She is extremely smart, sweet, caring, crosses her "T's" and dots her "I's". I never feel rushed with her and she always spends as much time with me as I need. She knows how to ease my fears. I'm dealing with a very complex illness that has affected my wrists and hand and nerves in that area and she is as dedicated to me and my illness as my other doctors are. I'm so lucky to be a patient of her's. I recommend her to everyone!

Had hand surgery with Dr Sweet. Pretty extensive. Had zero post op pain considering all that was done during the surgery. She came in prior to surgery, explained everything and assured me. I felt confident and in good hands. I would recommend her.

I am one of the few that have had 2 Philadelphia Hand Center Doctors. EVERYTHING Dr. Sweet did gathered the necessary information to treat my injury intelligently and for that I thank her.

Dr. Sweet has been my hand surgeon for quite some time. She spends the time with me to explain my situation and makes sure I understand what to expect. I never feel rushed and have all my questions answered.

I went to Dr. hoping to fix a problem caused by her colleague, Dr. Sessions. She personally didn't touch my hand & claimed that the new problem was due being of European descent. She also claimed that my MRI report came back negative when, in fact, I had a tear in my ligament. Needless to say, I didn't bother to return to her
