Patient Reviews

“My ring finger had turned into a 'viking finger' which runs in the family. It became a problem. I was referred to Dr. Costas who took care of it with no problem. Excellent care and results. Thanks to Dr. Costas I can now straighten out and use the ring finger as intended.”

“We were extremely happy with the care that we received from Dr. Lourie and would not even consider going anywhere else. The Dr. took his time to talk through the injury, how to go about daily activities and what to expect. From the appointment desk, to the nurses and technicians, everyone took great care of our son until he was released from care and cleared from his injury. Very professional and very knowledgeable. Thank you so much.”

“My experience with Dr. Lourie has been great! Even though he's swamped, he always takes the time to see how I'm doing. I like the fact that he wants to go the conservative route with my condition instead of insisting on surgery. We may eventually get to that point, but the treatment we are using is working great for now!”

“I broke my wrist in November. Initially, it was not believed necessary to operate. Eventually, a bone spur did require surgery, which was performed in May. I am now well on the way to recovery. Dr. Lourie and his staff were outstanding! They demonstrated the utmost in professional care and diagnostics. At all times I felt confident in their skills and ability to communicate. The care and treatment I received from their rehab staff were as good as I could imagine. I have recommended Dr. Lourie to otters and will continue to do so.”

“I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Costas. He knew exactly what was going on with my very painful swollen thumb. He gave me a shot and ordered hand splints for me. Several months later and it’s still doing well. He was friendly and made me feel comfortable.”

“We are so grateful for Dr. Peljovich. When my daughter was 2 years old he performed a life changing surgery. She went from barely able to raise her arm to almost full use. Her quality of life has greatly improved! Dr. Peljovich tried several alternatives before surgery and thoroughly explained all aspects of the surgery, which took away our fear and left us confident that she was in good hands. From the first time meeting him to now almost 6 years later, when we visit he treats my daughter as if she's the most important patient he has. My family is so thankful for Dr. Peljovich and the wonderful staff at the Upper Hand and Upper Extremity Center.”
