Dear Doctor Siegel,

I just wanted to write and say thank you to you, Maria and all your office staff for taking such great care of my mother during her office visit earlier this week. My parents returned from the appointment feeling that they had received such warm care and attention. While it is disappointing that my mother has apparently developed a significant rotator cuff tear, at least she knows now what is wrong and can engage in some some PT to address it. Thank you again and please send my thanks and greetings to Maria!


Dear Doctor Bruno,

I was first referred to you by Access because at the time you worked out of New England Medical Center. I was told you were the only hope of me being able to have any significant use of my right hand, and that the treatment I would receive there would be “the best there is…” Thanks to your surgery, I was able to retain use of that hand. Shortly after, I began playing the guitar (mostly because of your encouragement) and surprisingly, it has been very successful for me.

Since then you have moved up here to join Access, and the ongoing treatment (and therapy) I’ve received there is the only reason I am able to continue to play (8 years later). It’s been a long road for me and I have seen more than 4 dozen specialists (for other injuries) and many of them have also been touted as the best in their fieds… I wouldn’t pretend to know enough to make that comparison, but based on my experience, I can say that it has never been more obvious to me that the care I’ve received from you and Access is the best there is…

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.
