Patient Testimonials

David C.

Dr. Ockuly performed my surgery and specifically explained what would happen and how the procedure would be done. I can’t imagine a more competent surgeon than Dr. Ockuly. He is truly impressive and I was walking the same day as my surgery. The new prothesis feels the same as my natural hip. I truly recommend Dr. Ockuly if you need a hip replacement. He’s the doctor for you! The best part is that there is very minimal pain and discomfort!

Dr. Ockuly met me on a short notice appointment, following my primary physician’s referral on the same day. He was knowable and acknowledging of my urgency and impatience for answers to rehabilitation or surgical repair of my broken shoulder. He recommended surgery for the best, cleanest, and most efficient result in getting me back on track to my active lifestyle as soon as possible. It was my first surgical procedure in 48 years of my life and it went very well. He was very communicative in follow-up and referral to skilled rehabilitation experts. I was pain free within a couple weeks of surgery and am now back to full activity and strength 6 months post-surgical repair of my broken clavicle. Thank you TCO team.

I had no idea how much life is slowed down by a broken ankle. After surgery, Dr. Ockuly had a plan for my recovery. We executed the plan and now I am back on my feet. I felt very confident in Dr. Ockuly’s approach and am thankful to him and his team for helping me recover. Thank you, Erik W.

Before surgery I was barely able to walk. I did not realize my quality of life or how it affected my work and every day living. Since surgery with Dr. Ockuly, I am able to enjoy the animals again and see to there needs for the year. I have also gotten complements on how my home has improved and how my performance at work as improved. I am so grateful to the staff at TCO and Hudson Hospital for their wonderful dedication to their patients. Thank you all and be safe.

Dr. Ockuly was very thorough and listened to every concern I had. He set me up with Scott in PT and he was also great! Dr. Ockuly’s clinic assistant, Dani, was especially helpful. It’s so nice to have staff work quick and always put in 100% efforts. I appreciate all of you so much and could not have asked for better care.
