I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Minas do my surgery for a knee replacement. He is innovative and caring, and takes the time to explain everything. His staff and the whole process was very professional.

Everything was handled extremely professional. From the beginning with X-rays until the last discussion with Dr. Minus very informational and thorough. I would highly recommend Dr. Minus and his team at Paley for exceptional orthopedic care and treatment.

Dr. Minas is the absolute best surgeon. He repaired my daughter's knee and has given us hope that she will fully recover. He performed 3 separate surgeries on her in 5 months and each time he was incredibly helpful, considerate, and professional. His assistant, Liana Leja, is amazing!!! She is so helpful. She responds very quickly to emails. She is such an asset to this practice. Ash Itinger, the scheduler/ coordinator, is a dream to work with. She is super knowledgeable and helped me tackle all of the insurance hurdles. Dr. Minas truly goes above and beyond to make my daughter feel a part of all decisions. He always asks her if she has any questions and he really tries to make her as comfortable as possible each time. I cannot say enough about this entire practice. I just wish I had gone to him first!

Dr. Minus and his entire staff have been great! Appointments were very efficient. No waiting in waiting room for extended periods of time. Diagnosis and treatment were explained clearly. All of my questions, and I had a lot, were promptly answered. I am only one week out from my surgery. But I have had an amazing experience so far at the Paley Institute and with Dr. Minus and his staff. Jeff and Ash, you are the best!

Excellent experience. I was taken in for X-rays exactly on time and then taken into the exam room exactly on time. My discussions with both Dr. Minas and his PA were specific to my concerns and needs. The diagnosis and treatments were very clearly explained. Both the doctor and PA had very positive attitudes and left me with the same feeling. I never felt rushed and all of my questions were answered. Very professional office.

Dr Minas has very good bed side manners. He is very professional. He explains to me about my situation in a way that I understand. He listens attentively to my concerns and questions and never seems to be on a haste. He was very concerned about me having the best pain management. My sister and I were very pleased about the way he explains everything to me and my plan of care. Dr Minas is now my Orthopedic doctor(new) Cudos Dr Minas

Wish I could give zero stars. Avoid Dr. Minas and the Paley Institute at all costs. I've never met a doctor who is so inconsiderate, dismissive, and just a terrible person and untrustworthy surgeon. On top of that, the Paley Institute staff is extremely unorganized, uncommunicative, and misleading. Dr. Minas refused to answer additional questions I had concerning my second surgery. His last response to me was immature, arrogant, and unprofessional. I tried following up with his research coordinator, Liana Leja, but she completely ignored my concerns and never responded to me. Dr. Minas really knows how to get your hopes up and then tear them all down. He flip-flops on his recommendations, which makes him very unreliable. I don’t even know how his administrative assistant, Ash Itinger, got hired. Her lack of communication skills is inexcusable. To sum it up, I really regret putting my trust in Dr. Minas and the Paley Institute, and I would never go back or recommend anyone to them.
