Jim Evans - Knee / Hand
"The teamwork is amazing! Even as I went from finishing my knee therapy into scheduling the surgery for my finger, it was such a great transition. A very well connected team, almost more like coaches with their belief in you. They value you as a human being and everyone gets treated that way down there. You get to know the other people and it is like a family. Another great aspect is the accessibility to transitioning to the wellness program."
Mariangela Hudson - Back
"I highly recommend Specialty Orthopaedics Rehab program to anyone needing physical therapy. The staff is very knowledgeable and truly care about their patients. I have received care for my lower back pain and I couldn't be more pleased. From the front desk personnel to the physical therapists, each individual is treated with kindness and respect while delivering the highest level of treatment. We are very fortunate to have such compassionate and excellent care in our community."
Audrey Infante - Hip and Knee
"I met Dr. Piston at the hospital in 1995 after a serious stroke. He stopped in to see me every day and I wasn’t even his patient. Over the years I have had to have hip and knee surgery and Dr. Piston is the very best. Between Rehab and Fitness programs I have been involved with the Rehab and Wellness staff over 10 years and I totally recommend them. They can’t be beat. They’re really one in a million!"
Donna Newsom - Total Knee Replacements
"I have had two successful knee replacements from Dr. Piston. He has given me back a pain-free life. Dr. Piston is extremely conscientious with his procedures and the risk level of failure and infection is low if you do exactly what you are told. The surgery is the beginning ground work and the therapy is your long term success. This facility and the therapists are the top of the field! Do what you are told and you will be happy!"
Sheryl Scarmack - Hand/Back
"I have been coming here for 13 years. My husband and I retired and moved here from New York and New Jersey. I've had orthopedic problems since I was very young and I needed to follow up with orthopedic care for my back, neck and other arthritic problems and my friend recommended Dr. Piston. I immediately appreciated his manner and method of handling a patient. Dr. Piston spends so much time with his patients and he is such a lovely man and so is his family. At that time I needed more therapy, which I'd had in the past. I needed shots one day and my therapist came up and held my hand and I thought that was just overwhelming. I've had carpal tunnel surgery by Dr. Piston and most recently trigger finger surgery. I also have a very bad back and neck which cannot be operated on and I am still doctoring for that. The association I have with these people here is amazing. It is really amazing! They are so kind, thoughtful, dedicated, diligent, helpful and friendly. It is like a big family downstairs and upstairs. The other thing I want to mention is the wonderful patient relationships you form as you go through therapy meeting other people."
Cathryn Burns - Total Knee
"Due to a fall, I severely fractured my knee and tore my meniscus. Dr. Piston replaced my right knee and the knee now feels great. I essentially have no pain. I love the Rehab staff. I firmly believe that rehabbing my knee prior to surgery helped me during and after surgery. My post operative Rehab is going very smooth and I am extremely pleased with my progress."
Brian Miller - Mutilated Hand
"My left hand was severely mutilated during an industrial accident. I was life flighted to Pittsburgh and was immediately operated on. I have had nine surgeries and lost two fingers and the lower section of the hand. I was referred to "Specialty Orthopaedics" for wound care and hand therapy by a therapist in Pittsburgh and the Rehab group has been wonderful. My hand has improved tremendously and I've become very good friends with the entire staff. They even call me at home to see how I'm doing."
Deborah Brown - Total Knee
"I fell at work and severely fractured my tibia. My knee literally collapsed. I was in very severe pain. Dr. Piston replaced the knee and then performed a second operation to remove scar tissue and spurs. Dr. Piston is an excellent Doctor. Every one on the Rehab team is very professional, courteous and takes very good care of me. I would recommend Specialty Orthopaedics to anyone."
