Cheryl Feinberg, Lawrence, NY  foot surgery
My experience at HSS proved to me that there is no other hospital to go to when surgery is necessary. Dr. Martin O'Malley had to perform surgery on my foot after experiencing continual pain following surgery by a different doctor at a different hospital. The differences in care between the two hospitals was overwhelming. The nurses who cared for me pre-op and post-op at HSS were so caring and concerned for my comfort and welfare, from the initial insertion of the IV to settling me into my car for my trip home. I was fully prepared by the physical therapist before surgery as to what to expect and how best to care for myself during my initial post-op period and for my rehabilitation. Dr. O'Malley is a caring professional as were all of the other staff members I came into contact with during my stay.
