What patients say...

Our patients experiences speak for themselves – here are some of them.

“Dr. Ghaly listens carefully to what you have to say, reviews your films and scans, and talks to you in layman’s terms. I cannot give anyone a higher recommendation.”

“Dr. Johar did a wonderful job relieving my back pain. This was my first time with a back doctor and he completely has my trust – he did excellent job with my back.”

“I’ve been going to NOSS for about 2 months and every time I go everyone is wonderful. The nurses before, during and after each procedure have been just great.”

“Excellent expertise in orthopedics. I have been treated by Dr. Flynn for over 20 years. Excellent bedside manner and takes time to explain details. Kind and caring.”

“Dr. Gorelick was attentive, asked appropriate questions, gave reassurance and was incredibly respectful, knowing that I was a nurse. My surgery went well, she was able to remove the tumor and I have absolutely no pain.”

“I feel very happy with Dr. Ghaly, he makes you feel relaxed during the procedure. I have been going to him over a year and have recommended him to family and friends.”
