Dr. Polacheck is seasoned and knew exactly what was wrong with my hands. My surgical procedure went well and I am no longer in pain which complicated my job performance. The staff are pleasant and my appointments are a smooth process. Thank you all.
It’s a shame how insurance can control your life, but I thank my good fortune in finding a doctor like Dr. Frankeny.
“I can’t thank you enough for the new life you have given me. I have not been this happy in years.”
Heather D. - Patient of Dr. Himmelwright
When I had a fall this past summer I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Himmelwright. He is definitely a people person. He doesn’t seem rushed and takes his time explaining to you what is going on with your injury and what the options are. I had to get surgery and once again he took his time and explained the procedure to me before taking me back and even cracked a joke saying were going to be scar buddies now. Any one who needs to see an orthopedic doctor and wants a one-on-one experience should definitely see Dr. Himmelwright. He is a true sweetheart!!!
Christy B. - Patient of Dr. Kelly
Dr. Kelly was really honest and very direct and didn’t give me false hope he understood the rareness of my problem and said he will do research on it, which I was very pleased with he is the first orthopaedic that has done that and also took my concerns into consideration as well.
I had a followup appointment Jan 3, 2017 to review the Cervical MRI which showed no degeneration. However, I’ve been experiencing high to extreme pain since my 11/16 visit even after 30 days of PT and through getting the MRI on the 29th. I want to complement Nicki on her thoroughness, her analysis of my situation, and her decision to proceed with a cortisone injection in my shoulder. In less than 24 hours, I had a significant reduction in the shoulder pain. THANK YOU Nicki!!
Jennifer B. - Patient of Dr. Goltz
Great team. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Took the time to answer all of our questions. Took the time to educate my daughter and myself and made sure we had no questions prior to leaving.
“I don’t know who will read this letter, but please understand that “state of mind” is as important part of healing as medical.
I am looking forward to a flight to Texas this spring to see my great grandson and Dr. Frankeny has given that to me.”
I had carpel tunnel surgery with Dr. Adam Buerk and it was absolutely the best surgery I ever had. His manners are wonderful and always happy. What a wonderful physician I have found. He will also assist with my back issues. I’ve never been more happy to see a doctor.
Katelyn E. - Patient of Dr. Frankeny
Each time I see him, he remembers information and stories from previous visits even if the visits were 2+ years ago. Very impressive! I recommend him to everyone!
Very friendly fast and efficient – very short wait time. I see Dr. Jones, he is fast, friendly, and gets the job done accurately!
Dr. Oplinger is the best. West Shore Hospital was amazing. The procedure was a total success. Oh yea, everyone at OIP is wonderful too!!!
“Thank you for my new knee. I’m celebrating my one year replacement today!”
Dr. Frankeny has absolutely given me my life back. It has been 6 weeks and I am feeling great. I barely use my cane. After enduring pain for over a year and barely able to walk, I cannot believe my good fortune. His bedside manner, the staff at his Powers Avenue Office are beyond fabulous. They kept me calm and took great care to see that my anxiety was kept at a minimum.
“I can’t thank you enough for giving me a large part of my active life back. You and your staff did an outstanding job through pre-op, operation, recovery and post-op.”
Lorelle L. - Patient of Dr. Boal
I feel very confident that he is honest with me concerning the injury and treatment suggested. So very happy you are there and that you are available as you are. It is a great comfort for me knowing you are in my area if help is needed.
Sometimes in life you are lucky enough to meet some pretty amazing people. I felt that what I became a patient of Dr. John Frankeny.
“What would those who suffer do without people like you? You are a light in times of despair. How do I thank you for what you do for all of us? Our appreciation has no end.”
Miranda B. - Patient of Dr. Dahmus
This was my first visit with OIP and I have never left a Dr’s office so happy and in such a timely manner! Everyone was polite, professional, informative, and made sure my medical needs were taken care of promptly. From scheduling over the phone, all the way through check-out, it was an exceptional service! I will never again use another location besides OIP for x-rays or broken bones. Dr. Dahmus is the true definition of a great doctor and has an excellent team working with him! I can’t express how truly grateful I am for the exceptional service I received for a dislocated finger. I will highly recommend OIP to my friends and family!
“Thank you for all your extra care and thoughtfulness during my difficult time. Your successful surgery cured my back problems.”
After trying a lot of alternatives my insurance changed and we were able to do total hip replacement on January 21, 2014 at Harrisburg Hospital.
“Thanks for everything you did to help ease my questions and concerns before, during and after my surgery. You were so patient and understanding.”
Patient of Dr. Deluca
I want to thank each and every one of you for the outstanding care you give, professional care and compassion you show toward your patients. I wish you all a wonderful holiday and a very, very Happy New Year. He is the best!
“A million thank you’s can never express how much you did for me. Your thoughtfulness, kindness and understanding gave me so much comfort.”
Patricia C. - Patient of Dr. Lippe
Dr Lippe was excellent in my care! From the first time I met him to my surgeries he was outstanding! Dr Lippe gave me my quality of life back! I will never be able to thank him enough! The pain I was experiencing was ruining my life! But Dr Lippe and his staff were all excellent in my care! God bless your excellent doctors at OIP! I will forever be grateful for Dr Lippe and Gods healing touch! My sincere wishes is that God blesses all your wonderful doctors at OIP in 2015! May the healing touch Dr Lippe gives be a blessing to even more patients! He is truly a humble, kind and caring doctor! Merry Christmas to all the staff at OIP!
“I just wanted to send a note saying what a good job that the employees at OIP are doing. Everyone is very helpful, pleasant, professional, and very caring. I want to let everyone know what a good job they are doing and to keep up the good work. I will recommend OIP to anyone who needs your services.”
“I want to thank you so much for all you did for me. Your kindness will never be forgotten.”
Jen R. & Son - Patient of Kathryn G. Mueller, PA-C
After my 8 year old son had a accident on his 4 wheeler on Labor Day we headed straight to your Orthopedic Injury Clinic. We knew he had fractured his arm just not sure how bad. From Check-in to Check-out we had a great experience. I was a little pushy knowing that his fractures were bad. I wanted him seen as quickly as possible without waiting. They made my son feel comfortable as possible. Thank you again to all the staff that was working on Labor Day.
Tia K. - Patient of Dr. Goltz
Very pleased with everything – everyone was so sweet and accommodating, and made my daughter as comfortable as she could possibly be; reasonable wait time (important with my almost 2-year-old) :). I felt Dr. Goltz put my daughter at ease – he was very sweet with her! I also appreciate the time he took to discuss treatment options. I’m so grateful for your care and service.
For almost 6 months I was having terrible pain in mainly my right hip and knee. I wasn’t getting any satisfaction from my doctors and because of my insurance I had to travel to Lancaster. I finally got clearance to have an appointment with Dr. Frankeny for an evaluation. He found that my right hip was far worse than my knee, but again insurance was going to make me travel to Lancaster.
“Everyone was very nice and I didn’t have to wait forever for my appointment. Thank You!”
“There are no words to express my gratitude for all you’ve done. You helped me weather many crises and brighten my day. You are a blessing to me and everyone who knows you.”
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for your excellent bedside manner and congeniality yesterday. You may not realize how good I felt after leaving your office, regardless of how quickly the steroid injection worked (And it did work very well). This morning I am walking normally, and feel ready to resume my workouts. But it is not the mechanics of your visit that impressed me the most. It was your upbeat attitude and friendly demeanor toward me that was so refreshing!
Out of all of the ER’s, Walk-in Clinics, and Urgent Care Centers I have been to, OIP is by far the best and most efficient!!!
We were at OIP’s Harrisburg Clinic. The staff welcoming us, the patient care technicians, and Dr DeMuth could not have been more professional. Too many times we have encountered health care professionals who are condescending and relate to elder patients in a child like manner. Not so here! We were treated with dignity and courtesy, and all aspects of care were explained to us. Thank you so much.
“The staff was friendly and made me feel at ease.”
Barbara G. - Patient of Dr. Frankeny
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
“Your professionalism is second to no one, but your general manner is what sets you apart from the rest and gives me complete trust and faith in your capable hands.”
“This was our first visit to OIP and it was a great experience. My daughter had a fall the day before our visit and when I called the pediatrician they were only able to fit us in at 3:30pm which was a schedule conflict for us. When I called OIP to inquire about the walk-in clinic in Harrisburg, the woman on the phone was kind enough to schedule an appointment in Hershey when she realized we were coming from Palmyra. I couldn’t believe that we could have a same day appointment with an orthopedic surgeon without begging or referrals! The quality of care was top notch from that first phone call all the way through check out. Dr. Kelly took great care of my daughter. I will definitely recommend OIP to our friends and family. Thank you!”
“Thank you for all you did to get the MRI referral and letter to my primary care physician. You went above and beyond to help us.”
