-Efficient and courteous -----ALWAYS

-Dr Berni and his assistant took the time to answer the questions my son and I had and explained what was going on with my knees/legs. Dr. Berni had sympathy for what I\'m going through as far as my pain/disability. I was so impressed when he looked at my x-rays more than once,and you could see him thinking about how he was going to correct the problem. My son and I could see that it was just as significant to him as it is/was to us. My son and I have the utmost respect and confidence in his ability to correct my knees/legs. Did I forget to mention the staff from receptionists to the x-ray techs are awesome. They are patient and helpful w/a caring tone and attitude. I just love his assistant. She really takes care of you , and your needs asap w/care in her heart. Its been a long long time since I\'ve found and been taken care of by a team like this, and I know w/ having 2 total knee replacements in each leg already. This coming from a former nurse

-Knowledgable and courteous surgeon. Courteous staff.

-After being recommended to Dr. Schaberg, I called the office and was given a same day appt. for my ongoing knee pain. Both Dr. Schaberg and his assistant Cheri, were very compassionate, kind and informing! I would recommend Dr. Schaberg and SCOSA to all my family, friends and co-workers!

Now if he did not remember me that is fine to but he made me feel like a friend. Which was a wonderful feeling.

-Everyone is kind and efficient and really willing to work with you. I could not schedule my surgery for my trigger finger on a Friday morning so the nurse worked me in on the following Tuesday morning at Mid Rivers Surgery Center.

I am nervous about upcoming knee replacement and the staff has been more that supportive answering my many many many questions with knowledgable information. Thanks for being such a caring professional office.

-The front desk staff are wonderful, they have accomodated appointments for me since i am a teacher. The medical personnel are terrific also, esp. Brie- scheduling my surgery & filling out the paperwork for my insurance, she was very helpful, the x-ray nurses are great & funny, always a smile on their faces and Dr. Paranjpe nurses ( sorry i can\'t remember names) are terrific & so helpful with my care so far, the best thing i like about St. Charles Orthopedic is the wait for the doctor has been less than 20 min.

-Dr Paranjpe and staff were knowledgable and courteous.

-Every person I met today was very nice. My wife and I like Dr. Keohane very much.

-I saw Dr Paranjape for the second time. He is an awesome physician. He left me feeling totally at ease, was absoultley compassionate, and had a game plan and kept me informed. I would recommend him to anyone. When I notified the receptionist that I was in pain and really needed to see the physician right away, she talked to the doctor and was able to fit me in the next day. When you are in true pain and have a real problem, it is nice to know that the office is willing to work with you to get your needs taken care of. Thanks so much.

-I really appreciate Dr. Melander and Ellen, they are both very helpful and take the time to listen to/answer your concerns/questions fully.

-The staff are extremely friendly and open.

-Dr. Paranjpe was WONDERFUL!!! I had been struggling with my ankle and limping in pain for months-He knew exactly what was wrong and fixed it immediately. He's very good and very kind. I've been recommending him to everyone I know with foot problems.

-Ellen did a great job at working me in the schedule today without a planned appointment. It meant alot to me that she did this and that Dr. Melander took the time to make my problem important to him. I apprecaite the flexibility in their schedule.

-Dr. Powell (and) Jodie, his right hand, is one of the most professional physicians I have come across. Truly concerned (that) the patient is aware of their options; not just surgery and will take the necessary time to explain and answer any and all questions without making you feel ignorant, silly or repetitious.

-Dr. Melander listened to my concerns and followed my lead of the type of treatment I was comfortable in following.

-Ellen was awesome and showed geniune concern with my new medicine and make sure I understood how to call her with any questions.

-Dr Schaberg made me feel very comfortable about the surgery he was about to do on my ankle. I came in the ER with an ankle fracture and was very nervous. He explained what he would do and put my mind at ease.

-Dr. Schaberg was a second opinion for me. The first doctor I went to didn't give me options for the replacing my knee. Dr. Schaberg's bedside manner was great! He gave me several options for my knee surgery and explained every step. There was no over night stay and I had a speedy recovery. No one wants to be cut on, but you guys are pros at it. Thank you!

- My whole experience, from the first visit through the surgery has been very positive. Even the new knee was a lot less traumatic than I thought.

- Judy was very courteous and helpful with my billing questions.

- Dr. Schaberg is personable, competent and is quick without seeming to be rushing. I liked that he spoke directly to my son, on his level, not just to me as the parent.
