Patient Testimonials

Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?
Hear directly from our patients.


Cindy Fox,
Ossining, NY shoulder surgery
I had been in unbelievable agony because of a torn rotator cuff but I did not want surgery at first - especially because on two prior occasions, physical therapy had worked. When it became obvious that I had to have surgery, Dr. Coleman operated very quickly and the care I received was outstanding. His physician assistant, Kira Levyk, is amazing as well. She is very talented and very smart. Kira is also incredibly responsive to patient needs. They are quite a team and deserve a great deal of recognition for their undying efforts in caring for patients.
