I had a knee replacement surgery by Dr. Minas at the Paley Institute, I had other surgeries there in the past and prior to my initial surgery I did a research of doctors and clinics for this type of care and found the Surgeons and staff at the Paley institute to be one of the best in the field for these procedures, which is the reason I traveled 268 miles without a second thought to have the procedures needed to be performed at the Paley Institute. Dr. Minas was phenomenal with pre-surgery and post-surgery in the explanation of the procedure as well as answering all my questions and concerns to my satisfaction and understanding. I am very happy, pleased and feel lucky to have found such professional dedicated and experienced team of doctors and staff. Great doctor and outstanding professional!

First time ever being at the Paley Institute. Everyone we encountered was pleasant and professional. we were seen at the time of our appointment and could not be happier with Dr. Minas. He was quick to assess my husbands pain and treat as needed. Dr. Minas was kind and professional and made us feel comfortable from the beginning. Thank You for caring.

I am writing this review on Dr Minas because I had my 2nd visit scheduled with him . He stayed in his office never came in had pa do the visit, I was not happy as I had a few questions that were not answered. When leaving the room after visit there the dr was sitting there at his desk.My surgery went smoothly and recovery is well but would not recommend because of this.My first visit after total replacement was with the pa who is very good.

Stay away. got infected with both knees, surgery failed and have to have surgery again to correct what he did. I was told by several top doctors the surgery he did was antiquated.

Dr Minas was the third doctor I had seem about my knee. He immediately put me at ease, took the time to explain all my . He listened to my concerns and then explained why he felt one course of treatment was better suited to my situation than another. He really took the time to listen to me as a patient and a person. I could not have made a better chose of surgeons for my knee.

While specific information about how the arthroplasty would be performed and what the post-op experience would be like was hard to glean at the pre-op stage, Dr Minas showed a confidence and professionalism that made me feel quite at ease that I was making the right decision at the right time in my life.
