Michael’s Story #2

My left shoulder had hurt me on and off since I was a young many lifting weights and into martial arts. When I would lift something heavy or attempt to lift weights, I always felt pain in my left shoulder. One day probably three or four years ago, I was helping a friend load some large river rocks in the back of a couple of pickup trucks. I felt the pain but decided to work through it. I thought I felt a pull, like a tear, but continued on.

A short while later, the pain hit. I went to my primary physician who agreed with my self-diagnosis...torn rotator cuff.

I tried a little physical therapy, but knew it was not going to help. I had an MRI and sure enough, my rotator had a medium/large tear. I went to Dr. Accousti, discussed it, and we decided on surgery. What an ordeal! I had heard that this is a rough surgery to recover from and all I can say is I thank God I was retired so I had the proper time to recover.

Dr. Accousti, his staff, and the physical therapists that he recommended were all fantastic!It's been about a year and a couple of months and I am pain free! Dr. Accousti repaired my shoulder, the physical therapists directed me in the proper exercises, I did my part, I had several follow ups, and now...all is well! I am very grateful to physicians like Dr. Accousti. Fantastic!

They say you are your best advocate, at FOA, they are as much invested in you as can be.  I have been a patient for many years and the care I have received is well above the standard.

I can’t thank Dr. Squillante and Dr. Constantine enough, as well as, their staff for all the wonderful treatment.  They are upfront and honest about what really needs to be done and have helped with any insurance questions I have had. 

The doctor–patient relationship forms one of the foundations of contemporary medical ethics. This is proven here at FOA.

Awesome Doctor!!!!!!  I was very blessed to have Dr. Constantine do my carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands.

He was absolutely awesome. Super bedside manner, very personable and very professional and knowledgeable. I didn't have any scar and would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family. He has a great repoire with his staff and is highly respected at the hospital.

Great surgeon, great guy!

Michael’s Story

I had been in neck pain for many years,but it would come and go...especially after riding my motorcycle. This all started after a motor vehicle accident I had when I was young. X-rays didn't show anything at the time, but I knew that my neck hurt. Almost three years ago, while riding my bike, I noticed that my right middle and pointer finger, along with my thumb, were going numb. I didn't think much about it until my neck started hurting, which led down to my right shoulder blade, through my forearm, and into my hand.

The pain got intense and severe, and I went from my primary care doctor, to physical therapy, to a Neurologist, to a pain doctor, and finally to Dr. Squillante.

He looked at my MRI, listened to my concerns, and since I had pretty much done everything else, we discussed surgery. Dr. Squillante had already done successful surgery on my Stepfather, Uncle, and a friend and they recommended him highly. In the meantime, I met a couple of others who had surgery done by Dr. Squillante, one who came over two hundred miles to see him and another who was a nurse, married to a doctor...and they would not see anyone else.

I found his staff very accommodating and helpfuland the bottom e line is he repaired the disc between my C-6 and C-7 vertebrae which had deteriorated and pinching the C-6 nerve. I felt immediate relief when I awoke from the surgery.

 It has been a month and a half since the surgery and I just had my second follow up and I feel like a new man! No more pain, I can move my head just fine, and I could not be more pleased. I couldn't be happier and I would highly recommend Dr. Squillante to anyone needing this type of surgery.
