Why did you choose Rothman?

I chose Rothman because of their reputation for quality. I have known many people (especially lifters) that have had positive experiences with Rothman Orthopaedics, so it was an easy decision. Not to mention that both my Rothman physician and the staff at AtlantiCare also came highly recommended.

Describe your experience.

From my first visit with Rothman, and every visit since, my experience was fantastic. I loved the easy check in process, the friendly staff, and all the medical professionals along my journey. I enjoyed how thorough my doctor was in making sure surgery was the unavoidable option before scheduling it. This was all done the week before and after Christmas! My doctor called me and texted me, even while on vacation, to ensure I had peace of mind. They also helped me set up my emergency MRIs so I could avoid a wait.

What would you recommend to patients considering treatment?

I would tell them that based on my experiences, I would never think to consider surgery with anyone other than Rothman. The team at Rothman was helpful every step of the way. I would also tell those looking for similar surgical treatment, to make sure they think about the recovery just as seriously as I think about the potential needs for surgery. Rothman helped me with that mindset, and helped me thrive because of it.
