Luke H

Dear Doctor Bruno,

I’m Luke H, your patient for Biceps Tendon Rupture, Distal, surgical repair on 9-15-08. I’m the one that was on the sailboat in Portsmouth harbor. We were heading south to Virginia when I overdid it and injured myself. Your guidance was that, after the operation, all I could do on a boat was to sit around and drink tropical drinks with little umbrellas in them. Well, we didn’t have any umbrellas, but, per your admonitions, did get another person to help us get the boat back.

We did indeed get back – as evidenced by the attached picture. We left Portsmouth on 10-2, and arrived in Deltaville VA on 10-12 – with mostly dawn to near dusk days of sailing/motoring. In my non professional opinion, the arm repair has survived well, and healing is progressing.

Thanks so much for the fine work and the quick response to take me into your busy schedule. I really appreciate all that you and the fine folks at Access have done for me. I believe I was very fortunate to have had your expertise and the very professional Access Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics organization available in my time of need. I wish you and the Access group much success going forward. Thanks for all that you did for me.


Martha and Bob

Dr. Bear,

We are enclosing 2 photos of Bob driving his 6-dog sled team this winter. It is thanks to you and his new hip that he was able to do so, and to have such a successful season. We have seen your newsletter and the articles about some of the sports figures you have treated. We bet this is the first dog-sled driver you have ever rehabilitated!!! Many, many thanks for making it possible for us to continue our life-long passion – being in the out-of-doors with our dogs.



Dr. Siegel,

I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with you and your staff. Everyone was professional, courteous, friendly and very caring. And my shoulder is doing great, too! Thank you and your staff for making my time with you so pleasant.



Dear Access Sports Medicine,

After reading Dr. Bruno’s article concerning treatments for Dupuytren’s Contracture in the Portsmouth Herald, I was very excited to read that the FDA had just approved Xiaflex as a treatment option. Having had the “traditional” surgical treatment for the contractures on my left hand in 2006, I was extremely familiar with the post surgical therapy that the “traditional” treatment required. That same day, I arranged a consult with Dr. Bruno’s office and we agreed upon a Xiaflex treatment program for my right hand. In my particular situation, the treatment required three (3) separate procedures over a period of 3 months. The results have been much better than I could have hoped for and I now can completely open my hand and extend my fingers for the first time in years. Best of all, I had complete use of my right hand after each Xiaflex treatment the next day. This was extremely important to me because I could not afford the loss of productivity associated with “Traditional” surgical option. In summary, the Xiaflex treatment work for me. It was quick, painless, required virtually no physical therapy, and I could be completely productive as soon as I wanted.


Dear Access Sports Medicine,

I injured my right arm/wrist quite severely about a week ago. I severed just about everything in my arm. I was lucky enough to have Dr.Quitkin on call that day. He performed my surgery and re-attached all my nerves, tendons, and arteries. It was a three-hour surgery. From the moment I met him he showed an un-precedent true care for my well-being and made me feel extremely comfortable. The great treatment did not stop there. Through my numerous follow-ups I had the pleasure of meeting his Assistant Kevin, and Physician Assistant Sonya Justus. They were as great as Dr. Quitkin and made me feel extremely comfortable. I had a couple questions a week later and Dr.Quitkin was unavailable so a message was taken. Even the secretaries were as pleasant as can be. I was quickly followed up with by Sonya and she again showed a true interest in my well-being. I am 25 years old and have never written a testimonial/been treated so well to feel so inclined to share my great experience. I am also typing this with one hand. They have made a horrible situation as “painless” as possible. Thank you to the whole Access Sports Medicine staff and a very special thank you to Dr.Quitkin, Sonya Justus, and the assistant in Portsmouth Kevin.

A very satisfied patient,


Dr Zipin,

I’m grateful for having been sent to you and for your good care. I’d go the extra mile again to be treated by an excellent D.O.
