Patient Reviews

"We've been coming to Dr. McInerney for years. He has a wonderful personality and spends lots of time with you. We have recommended many people to come and see Dr. McInerney. He always seems to help us and gives us an appointment very quickly especially if you are in pain. Most of our problems are with the back and knees but I have to say we are still getting around at age 71 & 70. We love Dr. McInerney."

~Satisfied Patient


"I have been a patient of Dr. McInerney for six-plus years. During that period, he performed a total hip replacement and 2 total knee replacements. The results are beyond perfect. The pain level is zero. The hospital stay was short and rehabilitation was precise and rewarding.

Dr. McInerney, as busy as he is, takes time to explain all aspects of the procedure with a wonderful and sincere caring. Like him, his of fice staff is outstanding. They respect the patient as an individual and not a name on a report. You may be inclined to return to the of fice just to say hello, without needing medical attention."

~Ronald Brandstetter, Ph.D.


"I have been a patient for many years under the wonderful care of Dr. Vincent McInerney and his staff.

Having had total knee replacement and major foot surgery, I've been very satisfied with the results and the physical therapy which followed.

My experiences, until today, have been very successful.

I might also add that my late husband, Edward, was a patient of Dr. McInerney 's and while treated well for his shoulder problems (rotator cuff) he regretted not going thru with surgery."
