We feel fortunate to have received reflections from our patients about how our physicians have helped improve their lifestyles. Here are some of our favorites:

“It's a practice that respects my time and makes things as easy as possible, with testing on-site and scheduling services.”

“I have been a patient for many years for different things, hip replacement, torn rotator cuff, etc. There is no better place anywhere. I recommend to all I meet.”

“Dr. Hughes is terrific! I am always treated well when I have an office visit.”

“Dr. Sieger explained things so well to my husband and girls after surgery.”

“I was able to schedule an appointment the next day!”

“Dr. Gish and his staff were wonderful and great; don't change a thing.”

“I appreciate the warm welcome I receive when I walk in the entrance.”

“I love this practice. I wouldn't go anywhere else!”

“I have been a patient for ten years; I recommend OAL all the time.”

“I was in a great deal of pain. In spite of a tight schedule, Dr. Cooke's PA, Jessica, made time for me. I am incredibly grateful and managed to get through the weekend with significantly less pain.”

“The best treatment I could receive--please continue to be concerned for your patients.”

“Amazed at the comprehensive care provided under one roof.”

“OAL is the most professional group I have ever seen. My entire visit only took 1 hour and that included imaging. I was seen on time and got out the door on time. The doctors and PAs are kind and know their job. I wouldn't go anywhere else.”

“Dr. Rodgers is not only my neighbor, but is a great guy and a great doctor!”

“You have very helpful desk personnel. I left like a patient, not a ‘case number.’”

“I am very pleased with staff services and the doctor expertise.”

“Dr. Essis was excellent with my daughter Molly, and made her visit fun. He made her feel at ease.”

“Dr. Cooke has been a great doctor - he performed 5 surgeries for me over the last 5 years - two of them outpatient surgeries for trigger fingers - the other three being joint replacements/revisions. I am impressed with his bedside manner and his skill as a surgeon.”

“I am very impressed with the total experience.”

“Dr. Gish has operated on both of my shoulders. He is an excellent surgeon. He is an ace in my book.”
