"Dr. Pasia, a very caring doctor, chose a treatment for me that was not invasive rather than a surgical procedure, which might have been confining." - Kathleen N.
"Everyone there was very nice and prompt.. I started off with Dr. Sciotti.. he was great.. and he referred me to Dr. Pasia who did my surgery. He was very nice.. And then my followups have been with Josh Kiba..Great guy.. good bedside manner and very efficient. Would recommend Orthopedic Associates to anyone!" – Tracy G.
"I have had nothing but positive experiences at Orthopedic Associates. Dr. Steve Heithoff has kept my carpal tunnel pain under control with injections rather than surgery. I have several back conditions (degenerative discs, lumbar stenosis, lower spinal curve) and Dr. Pasia has provided huge relief with a different type of back support. I had several therapy sessions under Maureen's care - Kristin did most of the "hands-on" but all the PT staff that I had contact with were top notch. I noticed much improvement after only two treatments and by the end of my sessions could walk without any assistance. I still do the prescribed home exercises and am on "as needed status" now with my providers. My current need is to find time to meet with Maureen for new orthotics. I always recommend OA to anyone in need of care. I live 65 miles from Port Huron and am 81 years old but it is worth the drive to receive the type of care that OA provides." – Nira A.
"Unfortunately, I have had to come to your offices for too many incidents. I really like the way they have the layout. I've not had to wait long in the offices. I really appreciate that everything is right there on the premises. And best of all, they have been very kind and caring. Thank you all." - Marlene E.
"I went to see Dr. Ernst one morning because I could barely walk. I had woken up that morning with the worst back pain I had ever felt. After numerous trips to physical therapy, cortisone injections, steroids, etc...he determined I needed surgery for a slipped disc and sent me to see Dr. Pasia. Dr Pasia, to this day, is the best, and my favorite doctor I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He did a wonderful job on my surgery and this many years later, I'm doing great and have had no complications. I will always be grateful and would recommend ANYONE to go see Dr Pasia!!!" - Karen S.
The best care possible !!!! The entire practice treats you like a family. No long waiting times and everyone is so friendly !! The Staff and Doctors are updated on the most current treatments and procedures. My husband was injured in Iraq and at the same time I was in a severe Motor Vehicle Accident. Dr Pasia took over our care and was compassionate and understanding of our unique situation with both being disabled at the same time. Dr Pasia did his back fusion and repair as well as my neck fusion, we are healing well thanks to his excellent surgical skills. We have worked with their Physical Therapy Department, which goes out of their way to focus on each individuals needs. I have also had Heel spur surgery (fascia release on both feet) with Dr Ernst who again was very professional and I have had no problems since the surgery, how great it is to have no pain when I walk. I would only recommend Orthopedic Associates !!!!!! Thanks for being there for us!
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!
"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." -- Richard H.
"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.
