Dr. Fish performed surgery on my rotator cuff in 1997. It was a huge success and my shoulder is still great to this day. He was my hero then… however, that was not the end of the story!

I had been very sick since October 2019. My PCP, after three visits, said “I’m done with you!” and dismissed me. “You have asthma. Go see a pulmonologist,” he said. I had already been to multiple doctors and had several ER visits for four months straight. They all said asthma, bronchitis, COPD or some variation of all of the above. I was even told I might have Mercer. Of course, all they had to hear was my dad had Mercer so of course, I got it. They even went so far as to say it was all anxiety. Mind you… I was never tested for any of these things except for the flu which came up negative!

My symptoms were out of breath, tired, and a chronic cough. That was it! By February, I had had enough. Just as all this was coming to a head, someone by accident slammed into me while they were rushing around in the restaurant we were at and I was in pain. Did it cause me to break something? I didn’t know, so I called my trusted surgeon Dr. Fish and made an appointment. When I saw Dr. Fish he took an x-ray and it showed nothing. He wasn’t going to leave it at that and sent me to get an MRI as well. Before we left the exam room, I did mention how I had been feeling and had seen several doctors since October. He turned to me sincerely looking at me and said I will find out why you don’t feel well. I immediately thought to myself he’s an orthopedic doctor, not a PCP. Why would he tell me that. In retrospect, I was grabbing at straws because none of the other doctors really cared to help me. None of the doctors went the extra mile to really find out what was going on with their patient.
That day I had an MRI done, then they directed me to have a CAT scan with dye because they saw something. Within 10 minutes of walking in from that appointment back home, I got a phone call from Dr Fish. He told me to go straight to the ER. The scans showed a mass in my pulmonary artery.

I went straight to the ER. Unfortunately, the first thing the doctors at Danbury Hospital said was they have never seen anything like what I had and they really didn’t know what it was. They also said they couldn’t help me.

After much drama and a few weeks, we did find the correct hospital which was the University of Pennsylvania. What we found out was I had a tumor in my left pulmonary artery called a Leiomyosarcoma, stage III cancer. Now I’m going through chemo, and taking care of the real challenge that should have been diagnosed months earlier.

What I love most about Dr. Fish is he listened! He went outside the box of being an orthopedic surgeon. He did not stop. He treated me as a person and took care of the whole patient in front of him. Oh and by the way, he also found I had fractured my back and since time had passed, it healed on its own. Dr. Fish is my hero! I have the highest respect for him… and I owe him my life. It is because of Dr. Fish, I am here to tell the story today.
Thank you Dr. Fish and my family thanks you!

Dr. Gupta is the very best in knee replacement surgery! Thank you!

After a lot of trial and error I found Dr. Fish he was fantastic. After three specialists he was the first to take his time and explain to me exactly how MY KNEES worked not someone else’s. This allowed me to make the best educated decision on next steps. You can research all you want but it’s important to know how you work as every person is unique.

Starting with my first call to schedule an appointment I have received nothing but courteous, friendly and professional care from everyone in the office. Dr. Daher explained my rotator cuff issue in simple, easy to understand terms. He explained everything that I could expect from the pre-surgery testing to the post-surgery follow-up. I recently completed my fourth, and final, post-operative office visit and the quality of my care has been consistently excellent throughout. I would happily recommend Dr. Daher and his staff to anyone needing orthopedic care.

Dr. Gupta is the only physician I’d want for any orthopaedic concern. He not only explained the mechanics of the arthritis in my left hip he showed me the x-rays of both hips so that I could clearly see the condition of my arthritic affected hip. He’s exceptional in that he genuinely listened to my questions and concerns and went on to answer in ways I could understand. The Office Staff provided excellent, friendly and efficient service and made me feel cared for and respected. Everyone in the practice deserves to be commended!

-John D.

On October 1, 2020, Dr. Gupta and his team performed a total hip replacement of my right hip. Prior to the operation, the pain was almost unbearable. Immediately after the operation, the pain was gone. It is now Jan 10, 2021, and life is great. I am able to do everything I use to do. I want to say, “Thank You” to Dr. Gupta and his team for a job well done. Also, everyone in the office was kind, courteous, and professional from the receptionists to the checkout crew. My advice to the Doctors is; don’t lose these people, they make your office run smoothly.

Dr. Fish has accomplished a knee arthroscopy (torn meniscus) on both of my knees as well as micro fracture surgery (torn cartilage and meniscus) on both of my wife’s knees. Each time we have returned to physical activity stronger and healthier. Dr. Fish is among the most technically skilled Doctors we have encountered. He is clearly one of the best, if not the best Orthopedic Doctor in the Northeast and likely the country. This is evidenced by his role as a gatekeeper for Orthopedic Surgeons seeking Board Certification. It would be in anyone’s best interest to avail themselves of his talent especially if they want a worry free outcome. In addition to his skill, Dr. Fish is friendly and dedicated to his patients comfort and care. Despite a “mill-like” mentality in healthcare these days, Dr. Fish and his staff, excel in ensuring their patients are healthy and happy. I hope we never need another orthoscopic surgery but if we do Dr. Fish will be our Doctor.

Label me satisfied. 100%.

Dr. Fish is the best of the best! He has been caring for my family’s orthopedic problems for many years….from simple Cortisone shots to complicated surgeries to repair fractures. The staff, including PT experts, are all great. Would never go any place else for our ortho needs.

Dr. Gupta performed arthroscopic knee surgery for me on April 26th, 2017. I am so pleased with the GREAT job he did. I only had very slight pain for about a day and from then on it just gets better everyday. There was a little stiffness in the first few days which is very quickly going away. I can walk a normal heal to toe with no pain. I did exactly as instructed which was to not stress the knee too much and to ice it three times a day. I can’t say enough good things about Dr Gupta. He is a wonderful surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. You will be in good hands.

-Gail N.

I highly recommend Dr. Paz! In treating my mom, he was exceptional in what matters most in a doctor. He has a big heart, is compassionate & caring. It was great to have a confident doctor, dedicated to helping a senior feel her best. He is knowledgeable & thorough in his explanations & takes time to listen. His staff exhibits the same level of professionalism. They are friendly & patient. You leave feeling more like family than a patient.

-Rosanne P.

Dr. Daher took care of me with my meniscus tear this past year! He did a wonderful job with explaining what the surgery involves and did it with care. Thank you Dr. Daher!

-Jennifer F.

I went to 2 different doctors before seeing Dr. Gupta. I was not happy with the others, They were both a little full of themselves. Dr. Gupta took time to explain everything I needed to know about the surgery. He Made me feel like I was the only patient in the office. The entire staff at Orthopedic Specialists treated me the same way. They are all friendly, professional and courteous. A special shout out to the Surgical Coordinator. She never lost her cool as Scheduled my surgery, called back to change the date, than call back and change it back to the original date, all within 2 days. Thank you for that. I would Highly recommend Orthopedic Specialists.

-David C.

Dr. Gupta was my surgeon for both my hip replacements. My right side done Dec. 2015, my left side done Oct. 2016. He and the ENTIRE staff at OSC are FANTASTIC!! I have had other Orthopaedic surgeries (knee & foot) before finding Dr. Gupta. OSC is second to none! Just had my 6 month follow-up and do not need to come back for another 2 years. I will actually miss my visits to this office. You will NEVER find better doctors, x-ray techs, front desk, check out desk, PA’s, nurses, billing staff etc etc etc anywhere!!!! Thank you OSC I am truly grateful for you all!!!!!

Our daughter is a Division I gymnast who has been treated by Dr. Fish since the age of 7. She had a serious knee injury in 2016 which required two surgeries and thanks to Dr. Fish, a wonderful person and an amazing surgeon, she is back 8 months later as a competitive gymnast. Could not be where she is without him!

-Kim S.

I have been going to this practice for many years. I use to see Dr. Nipper until he retired and now I see Dr. Fish and he is the best! He takes his time with you and explains in detail what is the problem and gives options on how to treat. He has excellent bedside manners.
