Patient Reviews

“Dr. Tancevski was exceptional. He was pleasant to me and seemed to care about my problem. Surgery was great (if you can say that about operation). The surgery center was very nice, with friendly staff. I have recommended Dr. Tancevski to others the most significant testimony I can think of!”

“Interestingly, my wife Kay had the same surgery two weeks before I did. We both had torn meniscus surgery. She on her right knee, and I on my left. Both of us walked out of the surgery center (Northpoint), and we are both pleased with the results. You can be sure I have recommended you to others. Northpoint's staff was great! Blessings and thanks.”

“My appointment with Dr. Brad Bernacki was very informative & personal as I described my back issues. After reviewing my MRI, Dr. Bernacki prescribed physical therapy sessions with Orthopedic Specialists & Sports Medicine. My meeting with Ian resulted in a program of exercises to strengthen my back, improve my posture, & to diminish my pain. Ian, Rachael & Bethany all worked with me to reach those goals, giving me encouragement & advice along the way. Scheduling appointments to suit my calendar always handled cheerfully. I recommend Dr. Bernacki & Orthopedic Specialists & Sports Medicine to anyone needing help with their recovery.”

“All the staff has been friendly and helpful when needed. I love Dr. Tancevski. He got me walking pain-free again. When I injured my knee, I was hesitant about going to an Orthopedic Doctor; I thought they were for athletes only. I will be happy to recommend this office to anyone having problems.”

“I had an excellent experience during all phases of my custom knee replacement. Dr. Westerheide and his staff are professional at the same time being very caring and supportive. My healing and recovery time have been much quicker than I had expected. I am pleased with my custom knee and highly recommend this to anyone who may be facing knee replacement.”

“Dr. Westerheide is a conservative surgeon. He doesn't rush into surgery but tries to remedy your pain in other ways first. If surgery is needed, he has a class for his patients explaining the operation and how recovery will be. This doctor is a nice man. I have to say he is lots of fun and can make you relaxed about what surgery will mean for you. There is an explanation for every question you could ever have. The people he surrounds himself with are excellent from his nurses to his P.A. Dr. Westerheide is the surgeon but we are the patients, and the whole experience goes better when you as a patient listen to instructions do the therapy as they tell you to do it and also do your therapy exercises multiple times a day. The therapy department is the best I have ever been involved with. I was also pleased with the surgery center at North Pointe. The people there were also perfect put me at east friendly compassionate it is a beautiful facility top of the line. My experience with shoulder surgery was better than I could ever have imagined.”

“I was scheduled for regular knee replacement with a practice in Columbus, OH when my niece who is a nurse told me that custom made knees were available. I went to the internet and did my research. I discovered that even though there are many doctors in Cincinnati, Dayton, and Cleveland that do custom knees through a company called Conformis there was only one in the Columbus area and he was in Newark. I decided that a few trips to Newark would be worth a custom knee and I am glad I did. I was able to get an appointment within a week, and my custom knee was ordered within a week and a half. Once the knee is requested, it takes six weeks for delivery, but it is worth the wait. I had my surgery on July 25th, and six weeks later I am riding my exercise bike and climbing stairs without any problems. I am pleased that I made the decision to go with Dr. Westerheide for my knee replacement and I am scheduled to have my other knee done on October 31.”
