I have had a lifetime of back and leg problems as a result of being born with spina bifida. Numerous foot surgeries ultimately led to a series of back problems. In seeking care for my back, I have been a patient of Dr. Ghaly, Dr. Waitze and the PT staff for about a year. I have found them all to be highly professional. They have spent time educating me about my back problems and the options for treatment. I am now recently home from a lumbar fusion surgery and can't say enough about the way my care was handled and the speed of my recovery thus far. The pain and numbness I experienced are gone and I have begun my rehabilitation at REACT PT and am amazed at my progress! Dr. Waitze and Sarah, my P.A., are excellent! I am thankful to be in good hands.

“I have been seeing Dr. Darling for about three years. She is great; I love her! She listens – she doesn’t rush you through, and that is very important. I can’t say anything about her that isn’t positive. I have a lot of medical problems and see a number of different doctors, but she is the one I put my trust in.”

“Last year the NOSS physicians performed a surgical procedure on my cervical spine... They explained n detail what would happen... I was pleasantly surprised by everyone’s willingness to explain everything in detail. Their professional, caring approach was comforting to me and my wife.”

“Dr. Mushaweh’s bedside manner is fabulous; his whole demeanor is wonderful. He is warm, while telling it like it is. He is interested in providing total care, and works with your other doctors to gather the information he needs to provide all-encompassing treatment. He is wonderfully skilled; I would not hesitate to see him again if I require surgery in the future. ”

“Dr. Watson is a fantastic doctor. He takes his time; he explains everything to you. If you come in with a list of questions he answers every single one of them. I can’t say enough nice things about him. I saw him in the Southbury office; everyone there was very, very nice, and everything was so personal. I’ve recommended him to many, many people, and my physical therapist has done the same.”

“I think Dr. Ghaly is wonderful; he has helped me so much. I had just about given up. I didn’t really want to have surgery and he’s been wonderful. I had seen other doctors for injections, and they did not work. Dr. Ghaly got it just right in exactly the right spot. Now I am pain-free and back to feeling normal. I felt that he really got it – he really understood."

“Dr. Mashia went above and beyond to accept me immediately because I was really hurting. I had a back injury and muscle spasms. I couldn’t even stand up straight – I was crooked – and Dr. Mashia fixed me! I saw one doctor for one treatment, and was referred to another for a different treatment. It was great that they are all in one group. And the staff is very friendly and helpful; anything I needed they did for me. I highly recommend this group to anyone.”

“I just can’t say enough good things about Dr. Flynn. I was back to working full-time only 8 weeks after a full knee replacement. I recommend him to everyone – family, friends, and co-workers.”

"Dr. Strugar is one of only a few doctors in the world certified to repair five vertebrae at once with disc replacement. This skill and certification meant I did not need to have multiple surgeries: Dr. Strugar did my lumbar reconstruction in just one surgery. That was huge for me. His expertise is incredible; he is a miracle walking.”

“I literally woke up one morning and couldn’t stand. I had no feeling in my left leg and tremendous pain due to nerve damage. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Karnasiewicz did a dual surgery on my back. A year later I have no pain; it is truly unbelievable. I walk my dog every day, I’m back to work, I take care of my house. For me, it is like a whole new life. I would recommend them both with no hesitation at all.”
