It pleases me to be able to write a testimonial on the Orlin & Cohen Orthopedic Group and Dr. Cardinale, in particular. In fact, I have been a regular patient since 2005, when I fractured my elbow. The staff has been wonderful, caring and always very diligent about accommodating my needs, even when the office was brimming with patients.

With a diagnosis of lumbar radiculopathy, spondylolisthesis and a displacement of intervertebral disc in my back, I felt a sense of despair, because my hectic schedule precluded surgery and all its associated risks. Dr. Faust recommended I consult with Dr. Cardinale, who came highly recommended.

To date, my experience with him has been most positive since. I sense that he listens intently and is willing to gear his treatment toward what is actually ailing me. My treatment included two spinal injections, which were not altogether effective so Dr. Cardinale suggested a trigger point injection. The latter has been decidedly helpful in relieving an almost crippling pain, which radiated into my right hip. Together with my exercise routine, which has been a consistent part of my life, I am grateful for the relief the treatment has provided. Dr. Cardinale is most personable, but what sets him apart is his keen awareness of his patient's needs, coupled with his knowledge of providing the best care in treating the human structure.

Naturally, without the exceptional staff as well as personnel (physicians assistants Scott and Michelle), I probably would still be in agony.
