The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Pasia.

“On March 7, 2011, Dr. Pasia did a spinal fusion on L4, L5 and S1. I recovered fine and was feeling great. I told Dr. Pasia he gave me my life back. On Labor Day weekend 2013, I fell on my back. I had severe pain in my back and was sure I dislodged a spacer or broke something. Dr. Pasia ordered X-rays and assured me my rods, screws, and spacers were secure and that I had pulled a muscle in my back. He prescribed pain medication, muscle relaxers, and ordered physical therapy for me. He reassured me at one visit that he would get me back to where I was. Today was my last physical therapy visit and I feel great. Thank you, Dr. Pasia.”

“"My experience with Orthopedic Associates was great. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and treated me with respect. Dr. Pasia and Dr. Kowalski showed much concern with my condition and explained all the necessary procedures that I would need to correct my condition. They also made me feel comfortable, was easy to talk to, and I think they both are GREAT." -- Myrna P.”

“"Six weeks ago, I underwent lower back surgery. I was having pain and numbness in my lower back that was running down my left leg. Dr. Pasia of Orthopedic Associates performed the surgery. By the end of the first day, I was up walking short distances with a walker. The second day, I was walking on my own. After a short recovery in Port Huron Hospital, I was released to go home. Recovery has been very positive and moving forward. It was a very positive experience from the start to the point I'm at. My goal is to return to work, as it has been from the start and I'm well on the way." -- Randy M.”

“I came to OAPH at the end of 2010 because I injured my back at work (disc herniation). I first met with Dr. Pasia, which began my treatment. Dr. Pasia was very compassionate with my situation and encouraged me to do everything I could to care for my back other than him performing surgery on my back. He put me into PT where I first met with Laura; she's awesome. The entire staff at OA has really shined a bright light as to how a PT office is to operate daily. The staff at Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron is a fun-loving family with a great passion for what they do for everyone. I will mention Rob, Donna, Karen, and all the training staff. Each one of these people has made me a better person physically as well as spiritually and emotionally. Let's not forget Jenny and Jessica at the front desk. I have had many wonderful conversations with these beautiful women. May God bless you all and keep the current atmosphere alive and well. Oh yes, I almost forgot: thank you very much, Julie, for your sweet and kind words as well. If I forgot anyone, it's not intentional. God bless you all and DO NOT lose the humor, great conversations and deep-rooted compassion to 'Keep People Moving.' OAPH serves as a place of hope to so many who have experienced an unexpected situation in life and hope is ALWAYS a good thing. Thank you!!”

“"I have had back pain for 12 years and since it started every year it became worse and worse. It would start in my lower back and shoot down both legs. My feet would tingle and burn. Some days I could barely even move. I was terrified to even think about surgery. I stopped participating in many things I enjoyed just to avoid being in excruciating pain the next day. I eventually found my self sitting out of almost every activity that involved bending, twisting, or lifting. I'm a home nurse and even performing my job duties were becoming more and more difficult. I reached my breaking point August 2012. I finally went to see Dr. Pasia and then found out how bad my back really was. Dr. Pasia performed a posterior decompression with lumbar fusion at L4/5 and L5/S1 on October 1, 2012. The surgery went very well, but I did have some complications after surgery and ended up being in the hospital for eight days. None of those problems had anything to do with my back, just some things that sometimes happen as people try to recover. This surgery was definitely not easy to recover from in the first three or four days. Dr. Pasia was so caring and compassionate. When he had already been in to see me at the hospital for the day he would call and check on me. His bedside manor is amazing as well as his surgical skills. I am so pleased with him and I would recommend Dr. Pasia hands down to anyone that may need back surgery. I am exactly two weeks out of surgery today and I am amazed with my progress. The pain in my legs is totally gone and the back pain is very different than before. I know I have a long way to go, but I have faith that in time I will be able to enjoy life again the way I used to and participate in activities I've avoided for so long. I cannot thank Dr. Pasia enough for what he has done for me already. I am excited to see how much better I will feel every week!" -- Carie P.”

“"I have had serious back pain since 2000. In May 2008 I began caudle injections with Dr. Sciotti. The injections provided much welcome relief but it wasn't a long-term fix. Dr. Sciotti told me that in time I would need surgery. I couldn't take the pain any longer by December 2010, so in March 2011 I scheduled surgery. Dr Pasia told me I would see 70% improvement in my legs and 50% improvement in my back. The surgery went well and by April 2011 I knew I had made the right decision of surgeons and overall practice. I did exactly what Dr. Pasia suggested which was walk. I felt so great that by April I walked for 45 minutes, which was amazing for me. Today I have absolutely no back pain. My legs and my back are at 100%. I am extremely pleased with the service I received. Dr. Sciotti and Dr. Pasia have given me my life back." -- Shirley C.”

“One year ago today Dr. Pasia inserted 3 rods, 6 screws and 2 spacers in my lower back. (L4, L5, S1). I would like to thank Dr. Pasia for best year of pain free life I have led in 20 years. I never dreamed I would ever feel "normal" again, but here I am free of pain medication and anti-inflammatories. Thank you Dr. Pasia for giving me my life back!”
