I went to OSP because my back hurt and had been hurting for a few weeks. The person I saw was Alyssa. She took x-rays then discussed what they showed and prescribed physical therapy. I've been to two sessions so far, and it was the right thing for me. My back felt better after the first visit and is continuing to improve. Thank you, Alyssa, and thank you OSP.

Very good experience with Elyssa Root PA. Gracious professionals at the Avon site. Did follow up with Dr. Schmidtberg, also great experience. Only confusion is need next to see neurologist and didn’t get clear instruction on whether I would be contacted or need to find one. Will sort this out, but great team.

Elyssa Roberts is wonderful and able to quickly diagnose my issues - I am extremely satisfied and happy with the care that she provided . The entire staff is very friendly and eager to help as well - I have sent a few friends there when they also needed assistance with orthopedic problems.

I have been so grateful for the care and concern for my well-being from Orthopedic Surgical Partners. Elyssa Roberts has been personally taking care of my issues, has always been ready to answer any of my questions in a very personable way. The people at the front desk have always been so professional and friendly as well as helpful also. I would recommend Orthopedic Surgical Partners in a heartbeat.
