Guest Experiences

Advanced Bone & Joint

Many times we hear from our patients about how the doctors and staff at Advanced Bone & Joint have helped them. For those of you we hear from, we thank you for your kind words and hope we were able to help you live your life to the fullest.

Here are some of our favorites:

Dr. Spezia & Laura

Both of you are the most “Awesome” doctors I have ever had. You did a knee replacement on me July 27, 2017. From day 1 – (first appt) to today, you have been so kind & considerate to me. I was nervous learning to have knee surgery, but you took the time to explain every step to me, you always answered all my questions never rushed me out of the room, Dr. Spezia – your hugs meant a lot to me. Made me feel comfortable & showed you care about your patient.

I will recommend you to anyone who has joint problems. Its been a long 15 weeks of recovery – but between both of you and Tony Weir (Physical Therapist) I am doing better each day.

I’m glad I had the surgery!

Thank you again for being the “BEST” doctors ever.

Your Patient – Sandy M

Dr. Glueck

Dr. Glueck always makes me feel important and is always concerned about my life and how my arthritis is preventing me from living how I want to live.  You can tell he cares and is genuine in what he says.  I am scheduled for my 2nd surgery with him and I feel safe in his hands. - Linda M.

Dr. Glueck and his nurse took the time to thoroughly answer my questions about upcoming knee surgery. -Mary V.

Dr. Larkin

Dr. Larkin was so great with my son and made a difficult experience so much better. Actually every single person we talked to was so friendly. -Anita

Dr. Larkin was awesome! I also have been to other places and had to wait for hours. This place got us in and out on short notice. -Julie L.

Dr. Frisella

Dr. Frisella was very informative in explaining exactly what was wrong, how to handle it, the options I had, and a follow up visit. -Nancee B.

Toni & Dr. Frisella were very nice and reassured me that getting me better was their number one goal being workman’s comp. I was guessing I would get the run around but they legitimately care. -Denis C.

Dr. Lombardo

Advanced Bone & Joint 


Dr. Lombardo was very nice, attentive, and I never felt like he was rushing me out, which is very rare these days in a doctor's office. -Laura G.

Dr. Lombardo--he listens when a patient talks.  He has a great bedside manner! -Debi N.

Dr. Meek

Dr. Meek exhibits professional and personal care. Brittany does a stellar job making me feel comfortable throughout the visit. -Lisa S.

The X-ray tech was so friendly.  Dr. Meek was an excellent listener and took the time to explain everything to me in detail. -Cara R.

Dr. McAllister


Advanced Bone & Joint 

Everyone that I had contact with was great!  Making my appointment was quick and easy, check in was great, and Dr. McAllister was very kind. -Aubree H.

Dr. McAllister, of course, is always fantastic.  Knowledgeable, gets to the basics, and doesn't overdo tests, etc. Waits until he feels it is definitely necessary to go farther. Other than the doctor, the x-ray tech was an A+ employee.  Had things organized and ready, pleasant, and helpful. -Starla R.

Dr. Spezia

Dr. Spezia was great!  He explained everything so that I could understand and he answered all of my questions.  I am actually referring my father to Dr. Spezia! -Christol C.

Dr. Spezia was great. I felt like he was knowledgeable, professional, and committed to providing me with the best care and treatment possible. Matt was wonderful as well. -Katie H.

Jennifer (NP)

The check-in staff member discovered I was owed a credit and disclosed it right away.  Also, including Jennifer (NP) on your staff allowed me to be seen the day immediately following my request for an appointment.  Given I was in pain, this was a really nice feature offered to patients.  Jennifer was great to work with and was very knowledgeable. -Michael H.

Jennifer made me feel important. Not like a number, but a person who was important. She listened and made me feel that she really does care. It truly makes a difference when you feel like you are not only getting excellent medical care, but you get someone who does really care about their patients. You really have an amazing facility and I continue to recommend it to anyone who would need your services. -Sandra M.

Matt (PA)

The young man, Matt Pliske, was my care giver for this appointment. His disposition was positive and up. He was smiling and pleasant to converse with.  He made the experience. -Cheryl F.

Matthew (PA) listened to my concerns and addressed each one of them.  I felt like he would let me talk until I was finished...not until he thought his time with me should be finished. -Geraldine E.

The Team

Advanced Bone & Joint 

The whole staff - everyone was very friendly and made you feel comfortable. This was the first time my son didn't cry when a stranger talked to him or even touched him. Thank you all so much. -Stephanie S.

The two women at the front desk, very welcoming and efficient. Conversation helped ease my pain. -Suzette B.

Everyone, receptionist, medical staff and physician were all very nice, helpful and professional. -Sherri R.

Everyone was fantastic. In my past experiences at the doctor’s office you feel rushed and like no one is listening to you or taking time to fully explain things. I was very impressed with the time that the doctor, sports guy, and staff took with me. I have been telling everyone about my positive experience. -Kimberly V.

What I see and always observe is that all the staff seem to be high-energy very friendly; always willing to help. -William U.

Everyone was fantastic!  I can’t recall their names but from check in to nurses to x-ray guy to doc etc. -- a great all round experience.  -Jim H.
