I came to UOA “accidentally” due to trauma. I consider myself very fortunate to have initially been cared for by Dr. Sagebien and his team. My “multiple fractured” ankle was saved. Now I am in process of ankle replacement (due to arthritis years later) under the care of Dr. Fleming. The physicians, nurses and all staff have always been more than kind, expert, and upbeat. PT is great. Dr. Fleming responds to every concern with real care, patiently explaining any detail. A pretty amazing surgeon. As I said, I am fortunate.
Dear Dr. Sagebien,
Everyone is brought into this world with a purpose and you were brought into this world to be a great surgeon. We (and especially Sarah) are so grateful to you and so blessed that you helped fix her. It has been a long journey and you helped to shorten it and get her back to a normal life. We will never be able to repay you, but we thank you with the fibers of our being!
And in the future (hopefully we won’t need you!), we will surely know who to go to for excellent care.
Patrick and June Lundy AND SARAH!
PS – Best wishes to you and your wonderful staff for continued success!
I suffered multiple fractures in a bicycling accident and was highly traumatized as a result. From my initial treatment by Dr. Sagebien at RWJ I felt I was in good and caring hands. My subsequent follow up at UOANJ further confirmed my impression and my confidence in the care I was receiving. I felt like i was being cared for both as a patient and as a person.
I want to particularly single out nurse practitioner Patricia Seuffert for her expert care and great kindness. One becomes very fragile when one suffers great trauma. At such times the warmth and kindness of your caregivers is especially important. Nurse Seuffort is a gem and a tribute to the office and her profession.
100 better! I don’t have any kind of leg pain and my memory is back completely. I feel like it never even happened.
It takes an entire team to save a life, and Dr. Carlos Sagebien and Dr. Timothy Leddy of UOA were recently part of such a team. Jerry Bartolotti was helicoptered into the Level 1 Trauma Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in November 2010. Bartolotti suffered severe chest and arm injuries while attempting to make sure his unmanned rolling truck avoided injuring others. After being pinned between a tree and the truck, it was initially believed Bartolotti had little chance of survival.
