Sara R. – Jul 31, 2020
Dr. Topeleski performed a spinal fusion surgery on my then 14 year old daughter in the summer of 2017. She was always very pleasant and professional, wonderful with my daughter, and took all the time we needed to answer questions and concerns. She was absolutely terrific from day one until now, 3 years later when we just had our last follow up appointment. Over 7+ years of appointments, pre and post, I could not have asked for a better team to deal with through a very difficult and stressful situation than Dr. Topeleski and her wonderful coordinator, Tiffany. Highly recommend!!

We appreciate your time and kind words.
I was 8 years old when i was was seen by Dr. Topoleski, she did an immaculate job repairing the nerves in the ring finger of my left hand. None the less my writing hand. If it hadnt been for this amazing talented doctor i would have no feeling what so ever in that finger. Thankfully she was able to bless me with even a tingling sensation. I will be 24 in less than a month and im still greatful to retain some feeling in my finger it makes it much easier crafting cooking and overall with just daily use. She made a terrified 8 year old feel calm and assured that she would do everything in her power to give me anything she could back and she did just that. Even if it wasnt 100% she didnt give me empty promises or promises that couldnt be fufilled she gave me hope and realism on a level a child could understand. The sensitivity she and her staff showed me followed me a lifetime long enough to lead me to write this. If anyone reads this and was having doubt in her as a doctor please dont

Excellent doctor. Very caring and compassionate. Went above and beyond in helping and diagnosing my daughter and following up with care and treatment. She also diagnosed my son and because of her thorough examination and testing she diagnosed a potential problem that could have been very serious and we were able to take care of it. Highly recommend her. She gives you her time and full attention and you never feel rushed. That is a rare quality these day.

My daughter needed spinal surgery for scoliosis. No parent wants their child to have to undergo surgery. Dr Topoleski was very patient explaining every aspect and the pros and cons of the operation. Her skills as a surgeon were amazing. The scar is perfectly even. Everything went so smoothly from the time of our initial appointment until after surgery. Thanks Dr!
