Patient Reviews

"Dr McInerney is the best! He has been my sons othropedic doctor since grammar school! He makes you feel at home. Makes sure you understand everything and is always there is you have questions! His staff is top notch! Wait time is rough at times but so worth it!!"


Unfortunately, Dr McInerney was not the physician to perform my autoscopic surgery in 2010 nor did he treat me for the supartz injections I received 5x to the knee after re-injuring my knee again in 2011. I was never told by the previous physician that my ortho arthritis was permanent.

But after re-injuring the same knee in 2013, my primary physician Dr. Vitale heard my cry. I had to seek a physician that would listen and explain to me why I was experiencing pain after some time. He referred me to McInerney and I have been with him since 2013 to present. Dr. McInerney explained to me the reason for me re-injuring myself is because the injections I receive is only temporarily relieve and is recommended every 6 months. Kristen and Dr. McInerney fought hard with Workers’ Compensation regularly to make sure I received my treatment when the first physician did not. His entire staff is awesome from the receptionist to the physicians. He is funny and his spirit is a pleasure to be around. My mom had the pleasure of Dr. McInerney performing her total hip replacement and she is remarkable doing well at the age of 72 with no complications. My son broken his wrist and was cared for by one of his colleagues Dr. Callaghan again an awesome physician making my son feel comfortable at 13 after performing surgery placing rods to hold his bone in place in successful removing them. My son is doing very well to date. I have referred many to their office and I want to sincerely thank Dr. McInerney and his entire staff for all that they do, you all are awesome. See you soon for my next injections.

God Bless



Let me start we been patients of DR MC INERNEY LONG TIME. Recently My mom Fractured her shoulder at work. If you want a Doctor who cares about you and gives you FULL detail of your injury and what to expect, Well he is who you see. After she talked to him today it was nice hearing her happy knowing in time she will be fine. Just have to be patient.

"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."

"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."
