Patient Reviews

“My son was born with webbing of his middle, ring, and pinky finger on both hands. My childhood pediatrician recommended I contact Dr. Ratnerfor a consultation regarding surgery to correct the webbing. As a first time mom, I can't begin to explain how nervous I felt about having my 10 month old baby having what I consider to be a major surgery at such a young age. The doctor's and nursing staff at the Hand and Upper Extremity Center were phenomenal!! Not only did they help to keep this nervous wreck mommy at ease, but the work Dr. Ratner did on my son's fingers far exceeded our expectation. It's been almost a year since his first surgery and I am contacting you today to thank each and every person who was involved with his syndactyly correction, especially Dr. Ratner!!! His scarring is so minimal you barely notice and he has full movement in each of his little fingers! We are so appreciative of you all! I couldnt recommend a better specialist!”

“Dr. Gillespie saw my preschool aged daughter for a finger fracture that had become infected. As a healthcare professional, I appreciated the conservative but aggressive treatment he prescribed which enabled us to avoid surgery. There were several follow ups and at each one, Dr. Gillespie took time to answer all of my questions and speak to my daughter. He was always professional, kind, and very good with both my daughter and her siblings who sometimes had to tag along. We never felt rushed and I feel like we received the best possible care. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Bryce Gillespie without reservation.”

“Dr Lourie took time to explain everything and in a way that I could understand. Despite my being a first time patient he made me feel as though I’d been there many times. Very easy to talk to, very personable yet professional. A great experience. I would highly recommend him. His assistant was awesome too.”
