I started to have back pain out of no where three years ago. The pain started to run down my right leg. I began to worry and started my search for an Orthopedic Doctor. I have been to a few and never felt comfortable with the Doctors and staff. I made an appointment to go to Sea Spine Orthopedic Institute when one of my colleagues had a great experience and finally felt better with her knee injury. From the moment I made the appointment I knew I was in the right hands. The staff are very helpful and considerate. Once I met and spoke to Dr. Appel I again knew my Orthopedic search was over. Dr. Appel spent a great time with me going over my spinal condition. He presented a treatment plan no other had before. It has been two months since I have met Sea Spine Orthopedic Institute and I am excited to say I am pain free with out surgery. This may change but at least I can live my life again and be active. Thank you Dr. Appel for giving me a new lease on life!!


Dear Sir or Ma’am,
In a world where complaints are heard more than complements and hospitality is a lost art, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that one of your staff members, Miss Leslie, has been nothing but a joy and a help in a time of extreme confusion, pain and difficulty in my life. I have never been in an auto accident before and I have never been to the hospital or even had any kind of major medical problems, so this is all a first-time experience for me and it is been very scary and very difficult. Leslie has gone out of her way to help me find the referrals that I need, explain to me what the different procedures mean and what is going on with my treatment, and she truly cares about me and what is happening. She always asks about how I’m doing and what’s going on in my in my life and if there’s anything she can do to make things better, and she knows I am struggling financially and I have to take the bus several hours sometimes to make it to my doctor’s appointment, and she has been very accommodating and helpful and what is been a very trying and stressful time in my life. She is truly an angel among the practice of medicine, and it is people like her that have an impact on people with chronic pain and trying times in their lives, that make your day and help you keep optimistic and what can be a very depressing struggle. The compassion that she gives is something that cannot be taught it is something that is inside you and she is definitely an asset to your company and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate having her on my side. I spend hours on the phone talking to various doctors and medical professionals, and many of them are quite jaded and patience and can be very short and snappy, but Leslie hasn’t lost her caring and giving attitude like some of the other medical professionals have. I appreciate all of you and all of your hard work and dedication to make us feel better. If there’s ever an opportunity that arises that you need people to be trained by others Leslie would be a wonderful choice as a person who could train others on remaining compassionate, helpful and pleasant to those of us who need A little reassurance as they go through a very difficult time in their life. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter, and I hope you share this with Leslie and let her know that she has made a huge impact on my journey to getting back to my healthy self. Thanks again, and I hope you have a beautiful day.


I am once again writing to express my gratitude to you and your staff. One of the girls in the front office I believe her name is Andrea, has also been very sweet to me, I have to take three buses to get to my appointments and she actually made sure that I could get home and I really appreciated that. Dr. Gilas saw everything I was going through and made sure that my medication could be mailed to me and is taking care of me as well so I really I’m glad that I was referred to Sea Spine. It is very scary being in a car accident and it is so nice to have people who actually care about your well-being. Thank you and have a beautiful day


To Whom It May Concern:
I must say that every once in a while I come across a truly professional and caring company. I’m sure you get every complaint so I would like to express my thankfulness to your entire staff.
After being severely hurt playing Hockey I was referred to your office. From the moment I walked in I noticed the attention to detail and caring from your staff. I did not have to wait long at all to see a Doctor then the Doctor actually took his time and explained all the possibilities of the injury, and the solutions.
After receiving treatment for several months now I am back on the ice and playing Hockey once again like I was 100%. Much thanks to the entire Sea Spine Staff.
