    Thomas Raley MD
    Dr. Raley recommended a steroid injection into my lower lumbar spine and the results were a major relief of my pain. He preformed the 20 minute procedure in an excellent manner. Dr. Raley is very patient-centric and people oriented. Based upon my treatment, I highly recommend this spine specialist.

    Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center
    I love this practice because of Dr. Cuttica and his staff.   They take their work, seriously, but are personable at the same time.  Be prepared to spend an hour or so on your first appointment because he needs time to review your completed forms and x-rays.   Subsequent visits are within 10-15 minutes wait time but you never know how busy they get due to multiple unexpected ankle issues (think the day after soccer games or rowdy concerts).   Otherwise, expect nothing but sound, knowledgeable, and skillful treatment. 
    Some good phone numbers to keep available are as follows:
    Orthopedic Sport (to rent a scooter for approximately $40.00 per week and they deliver for $25.00) - much easier to use than crutches:    703/ 263-1325
    Request the completed form for a Handicap Tag (for Handicap Parking) from the Orthopedics and get the tag from DMV asap.
    If any hardware is used (i.e., screws, plates, etc.) ask for the card (at the front desk) that validates you will set-off metal detectors.  It helps to present it when going through Security check-points (e.g., airports).
    Phone Number to purchase an Aircast ice machine (get the motorized one and make sure you have adequate ice):    703/ 584-2040
    Family Pharmacy located in McLean, VA off Chain Bridge Road - offers free delivery:  703/ 854-1992
    Ensure that you have plenty of pillows and a comforter so you can elevate your leg, foot, and ankle.
    Input pertinent phone numbers into your cell phone ahead of time because getting around and carrying papers can be challenging.
    A clear oversized baggie is good, also, for papers, pens, and safety pins (just in case).
    The current contact information on this practice's website is for a store located in New England instead of the small store located inside the practice.  You can get the local store's phone number by asking the person behind the counter for i I recommend getting the plastic bag for your foot, ankle, leg for the shower and possibly one of the socks.  The sock is useful because I believe it is large enough to cover a cast and looks better with the boot.  I did not buy one and regretted it because I wanted to cover my toes and a regular-sized sock was tight against the skin and incision and I ended-up losing the other one (of the pair).
    This practice's phone number (703/ 769-8420) has an option to leave a message for a Nurse.  I have contacted them two or three times and have received generic responses from the nurses.  If you have any discomfort (e.g., your foot and ankle swelling and rubs against your cast), do not hesitate to be persistent in getting assistance.  I believe this service acts as a first-line, common problems service not intended for more severe ones so make sure you get what you need because the practice opens around 9AM, takes an hour lunch, and then does not guarantee a response for any messages left after 3PM.   I believe this is to keep the overhead down.
    I have approximately another month of treatment (one for x-rays to confirm that healing has occurred so I can resume walking on it and then a few weeks of physical therapy twice a week).  I also love the fact that the practice does not pressure or try to sell you on their physical therapy practice though I did go through theirs for mine.

    Very pleased with professionalism of staff, bedside manner of dr. Rawles, balanced advice on surgical options. Surgical center was very well run but wait time before surgery was too long.loved the warm blankets before surgery, nurses attention, postoperative care. Dr. Rawles even called me from overseas to check on my condition.

    Cuttica, Dr. Daniel J.
    Dr. Cuttica explained to my parents (at the hospital) what he would be doing during the surgery and what to expect afterwards. He met with me and explained the importance of taking the pain killers before the leg blocks wore-off after the surgery. The instruction was to and quot;stay ahead of the pain killers wearing offand quot; (which I did for about four days and then took a pain killer only when experiencing discomfort, normally at night and mainly for my knees because my right side had to support all my weight during recovery because I was not allowed to have any weight on my left side so my right knee was causing pain). Otherwise, I had zero pain. I eventually went to a cast (as prescribed) and the physician's assistant, Lauren, cautiously and carefully set it. It was the best-looking cast I've ever seen. -About two weeks into the cast I started experiencing my ankle and foot rubbing against it (believe the ligaments and cartilage were being repaired and growing). I could have gone in to get the cast removed but decided to just wait a few days for my appointment. I did leave a message for the Nurse at the Orthopedic Center letting her know I was in pain due to my foot and ankle rubbing against the cast. I could have been more assertive and had the cast removed but decided it was bearable for another day or so. The Center has an option to speak with a nurse (which I did a couple times), and I recommend that you push if you need something because you may get a generic answer so don't wait and push your issue if you need something (Janelle and Stephanie are awesome). I finally met the period to get the cast removed and Jumana (one of Dr. Cuttica's medical assistants) did this exceptionally carefully and patiently. She made me feel at ease during this whole process.
    I am now approximately 10 days before meeting with Dr. Cuttica to get cleared for bearing weight on my left leg and ankle. I am to get physical therapy twice a week for a few weeks, too. Kevin (in Billing has helped me understand my balance) and he and Stephanie are most responsive when I call and leave a message on their answering machine.
    Bottom-Line: Dr. Cuttica is the best ankle doctor and surgeon ever. He is passionate about his work, profession, and patients, LISTENS (attentively) to you, and has unparalleled bedside manner. He is super approachable, personable, and genuinely cares about his patients. He is professional, knowledgeable, and skillful as are his assistants. He is a stellar and exceptional doctor and I highly recommend and endorse him, particularly for children and those fearful of surgery. He is not intimidating and is not arrogant. He is the kind of guy you'd see at a baseball game who can jump into action during an emergency. He is knowledgeable about foot and ankle care (possibly leg, too) and have seen he gave a talk about taking care of your feet and ankles for marathons.

    Just make sure you bring work, book, cell phone, or something that will keep you occupied while waiting about one hour on your first appointment. All subsequent appointments (for me, at least) the wait time has been between 10-15 minutes. Also, make sure you get the phone number and business card for the small store inside the Center because the current website shows information for a store in New England that is mail order only. Hopefully they change this to reflect theirs, soon.

    Commonwealth Orthopaedics
    I got an appointment with Commonwealth right away, and saw Dr. John McConnell. He had treated my son a few years ago when he broke his wrist and I had been very pleased with his attention and care of my son. Lucky for me, Dr. McConnell specializes in sports medicine and has operated on many many knees like mine over the years. He took a conservative approach and suggested I might not need surgery, depending on what kind of physical activities I wanted to do in the coming years. (I was 52 when I had the accident.) He also told me he could operate if I wanted to go that route. He explained three different types of procedures, and why he recommends only one of those for women. My only complaint about Commonwealth was that while they and Dr. McConnell see hundreds of patients in a year and this stuff is routine for them, the surgery decision was a big deal for me as the patient. I had a ton of questions and reservations, and I felt as though the whole thing was commonplace for Dr. McConnell (which it is). The consults were brisk and routine, and I felt a little rushed. I did seek a second opinion and also spoke to many other people who had had knee surgery for ACL/MCL, and in the end, I went with a hamstring replacement from Dr. McConnell.
    The surgery went fine. I had very good follow-up care, lots of PT, and Dr. McConnell was very realistic about what the recovery period would be like. I worked hard, and I have complete use of my knee -- even went skiing 9 months after surgery. It was an excellent outcome.
    Commonwealth's staff is incredibly efficient. I never waited for an appointment, even when the office was packed. They x-ray right on site too. The surgical suite they use is wonderful. The staff--including anesthesiology-- is warm, welcoming, efficient, professional and reassuring. They fixed me up with everything I needed post-op (knee bending machine, ice machine) to make it easy for my family to support me and for me to manage my own rehab. Follow-up post-op was thorough and I am fully and quot;back to my life,and quot; as Commonwealth's motto promises.

    Cashman III, Dr. Justin L.
    Dr. Cashman was inept in every way - from failing to order/read MRI reports, lost records, totally uncaring & arrogant.  I ended up with over 30 major procedures & lost much of my foot.  Sent to Georgetown hospital to save leg.

    Bruno, Dr. Peter D.
    i have had severe neck/shoulder pain. Made appt with Dr. Bruno for a second opinion as the 1st doctor's treatment not seeming effective. They asked me on the phone to bring in xrays/notes from first doctor. I didn't have time to get them but didn't think a lot of not having them for the appt. I have gone to see 2 doctors for other things for myself or other members of my family and never even been asked to bring notes/xrays. I was actually looking forward to the appt with Dr. Bruno as I was in so much pain and just wanted to figure out what was going on. When I arrived at the office, after filling out 6 pages of paperwork, the office manager came out and told me Dr. Bruno would not see me without notes from the other doctor. I asked if he could still see me, that I was in a lot of pain, had insurance and wanted HIS opinion of what was going on with me. She told me firmly 'no, that is his policy'. At this point I had tears in my eyes as I was in so much pain. I have been to many many doctors for myself, children, husband and NEVER been treated like this, never been refused for treatment. I am completely astounded. I made the appointment with Dr. Bruno as he was listed in Washingtonian Top Docs but will NEVER go back again.

    Bruno, Dr. Peter D.
    Dr Bruno has treated my family for fractures, back pain, tendinitis and shoulder and knee problems for at least the past ten years. He is a quick but thorough and accurate diagnostician whom this medical skeptic trusts completely. He is also conservative in his treatment recommendations, a good thing in a surgeon. Today Dr. Bruno looked at MRI scans for a suspected meniscus tear and explained in detail why there didn't seem to be much mechanical damage to the knee. He drained fluid from the knee and also ordered bloodwork to see whether the cause of pain was RA or Lyme Disease or some other medical issue -- not the first or second things that come to mind. Dr. Bruno has 30 years of experience and he disavows plans to retire any time soon -- the best possible combination. The office staff are knowledgeable and pleasant, too.

    Bruno, Dr. Peter D.
    I have been seeing him for years. He is located very conveniently for me. He is not quick to say that I need surgery. He is conservative. He looks at treatments rather than surgery. I can always get to see him.

    White, Dr. Joseph B
    I had been to 2 other orthopedic surgeons that recommended surgery and I wasn't really comfortable with that. He wanted to see all my records and all the films. He looked at everything and said that something wasn't right. He said it was like a puzzle and he wasn't touching me until all the pieces fit. He wanted to call the radiologist and speak with him because something struck him. He is very careful and two other doctors wanted to schedule back surgery. You know he really cares about you and wouldn't recommend anything until everybody was comfortable. He returns calls. He spends a lot of time with me. He is just great.
