Letter addressed to Dr. Paul Spezia:
My life has changed because of my pain-free hip.
I am walking twice a week for 30 minutes; my posture has improved, I am able to do chores which I had been unable to do.
Thank you for taking the time to see me. I wanted you to know that I thought your operation was as "slick" as I have seen. I was in and out on time and was treated professionally by all. In this day and age, it's rare to experience such professionalism and expertise.
Also, cortisone shot seems to be working. Hopefully I won't need to see you too soon but if the day comes that I will need surgery, I'll definitely see you again.
Again, my sincere thanks and congratulations...just wanted to send my compliments to you and your staff.
Dear. Dr. McAllister:
I just want to take a minute of your time to thank you for the excellent medical care that you provided to me in scoping my knee. I just returned from my first snow skiing trip and had no pain, no swelling, and not even a twinge of discomfort.
I know from personal experience that people don’t always take the time to express their thanks. I just wanted to thank you for your efforts. You came highly recommended and I will certainly recommend you to others. Thank again.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Dr. McAllister and his awesome ladies for always taking good care of me and my injuries. Thanks for working me into your busy schedule yesterday!

In March 2008 I went to see Dr. McAllister because I was in a lot of pain and could hardly stand, let alone walk. After being checked out by Dr.McAllister and having x-rays, it was found out I had severe arthritis in both hips. The next step was to fix them. My first surgery was in May 2008 on my left hip. It was a success. But I was walking in circles (just kidding). I still had to have the other one done. So in August the right one was done. Another success. Now in April 2009 I’m still recovering but NOW I CAN walk, bend, kneel and even dress myself. And one of the COOLEST things, I CAN RIDE AGAIN! I have not been able to do any of these things for MANY YEARS.
THANK YOU, Dr.McAllister
And let us not forget his trusty sidekick PATRICE.
THANK YOU BOTH VERY MUCH!
Dear Dr. McAllister,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help and expertise in replacing my right hip. My recovery had been nothing less than miraculous due in great part to your skill and kind follow up care. I am truly grateful for your assistance and guidance in this life changing procedure.
Please feel free to use my experiences in the follow-up studies, research or in counseling other hip replacement candidates who may have questions.
I’ll see you at the end of April for another follow-up.
I have never been in a doctor's office that was so proficient. You guys do a wonderful job and everything here is great. I wish all offices were this nice and friendly. It was nice to know you were professional and had a plan of action for the future. You eased my fears and made me feel welcome and t like I was a problem you had to deal with. Thank you.
Very caring treatment! Dr. Larkin is wonderful.
Dr. Spezia was wonderful; everything was great. I felt so comfortable, and he made my son feel real relaxed.
