Dear Doctor on a bright summer afternoon one day last July, my son fell while playing in the yard and hurt his arm quite badly. We rushed over to Clara Mass, exhausted, my child in much pain, and fearful of the ordeal that was to follow. The medical staff explained he would need surgery as soon as possible due to two bone fractures. Understandably we spent the night both anxious and terrified.

The very next morning we met with our doctor, Dr. Seth Queler for the first time. With much patience he clarified the surgery detail, put my son at ease instantly and reassured me, all would be just fine. Any parent can relate to the dismay of watching a child and wishing it were possible to trade places with them.

I was a bundle of nerves when Dr. Queler came to see me as soon as the surgery was over. The surgery was very successful and all turned out well We went to see him in a few days for a follow up, along with many more visits to come, including physical therapy. It was a pleasant experience each and every time we met with Dr. Queler. He is a warm and caring professional with kindness and compassion for his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Queler to a friend, or to seek treatment with him once again if need be. He is an exemplar doctor be revered in the medical community, always greeting his patients with a gentle smile. With our hearts full of much gratitude we extend our best regards to Dr. Queler and his attentive staff. We thank you, Dr. Queler

There aren’t words adequate to express my gratitude, but I will try. Dr. Femino had been highly recommended to me and making the first appointment with him was one of the best decision I have ever made. Severe Osteoarthritis in both knees had made everything challenging dealing with pain and instability. From my first meeting with Dr. Femino, I felt at ease and confident he could help me.

Dr. Femino performed total knee replacements of both knees – one in January 2012 and the next in January 2013. The surgeries, recoveries, and result were better than I expected. Both surgeries were performed on Tuesday. I was home on Friday and began outpatient therapy the following Monday. In less than three weeks, I had full range of motion and was walking without a cane. The physical therapists were impressed with my rapid recovery.

Thanks to Dr. Femino I am back doing everything I enjoy, especially keeping up with my grandchildren ages five and two. Family and friends are surprised and happy to see me walking normally. In addition to his expertise, Dr. Femino is a warm, caring and down to earth person. His staff is friendly and professional. The pre-surgical class, information and exercises were very beneficial in helping me prepare for the surgery. The surgical team and orthopedic wing staff is top notch. Alicia Realmuto, Dr. Femino’s nurse practitioner is exceptional and a great support.

I can’t thank Dr. Femino enough for getting me back on my feet and moving again

My ankle hurt when I walked. It even hurt to drive. I had been to other doctors and they diagnosed me with tendonitis. After ankle arthroscopic surgery by Dr. Queler, I recently went back to the dance studio. It’s so nice to be able to return to what I love most and to not be in pain while I’m doing it

Caitlin

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for my Mom throughout her illness. It was the worst, most frightening time of my life, and your presence was the only calming factor. Dr. Queler, you are clearly a gifted surgeon, but beyond that, your empathy, honesty, and compassion are immeasurable. You were like a breath of fresh air any time you walked into her room. You explained things honestly, but with true care and concern. I know how hard you worked with Mom, and how much time out of the hospital you spent thinking about her and her condition. You also put together a wonderful team of doctors to work with her, and I know that it’s thanks to all you did that we had my Mom for another year and a half.

Debbie

Having served in the military, I can objectively and unequivocally state that the demeanor, efficiency and professionalism of your office staff, the nurses and in particular Dr. Queler were of the highest quality.
