The best doctor

I was a walk in patient and was seen by Dr. Brenda Sanford, she was one of the best Drs. I have had take care of me in quite a while. She was prompt, professional, and very knowledgeable on the subject of my hand. I went to an Acute Care facility and had 3 x-rays of my wrist and was told it was broken in three places and to go see a surgeon asap. They gave me a business card for three Drs. My family Dr. recommended Dr. Sanford and I am glad she is who I went to. The wrist was not broken. I had a wrist with arthritis inflammation. I was given a splint and medication and felt better in two hours. She is fantastic. The splint was provided to me right in the same building and that department was as nice as the Dr. I will certainly recommend the office and Drs to anyone who needs care for Bone and Joint problems. Thank you Dr. Sanford.

Amazed

One year ago today Dr. Kohen performed a total replacement of my right hip. I am still amazed at how smoothly the whole process went. If I ever have to do this again, I will want the same surgeon and staff, the same hospital, and the same physical therapy team. Thank you all!

Great relief

I enjoyed meeting everyone who helped me on my visit. I also liked that the doctor listened to what I had to say and talked to me in a way that I understood what was being said and what he was going to do. I don’t think that I have ever had that great of care ever. With me being in pain for 16 months now to know that it is almost over is a great relief.

Thank you very much for making me comfortable during my time in the office.

Will travel to see

I have been under the care of Dr. Bartholomew for a few years and and I can honestly say he, his staff & his P.A, are the best. I had a torn meniscus, in 2 spots last year on my left knee, and a torn one on my right the previous year, I have/had been getting the injections for years and Dr. Bart had suggested a partial replacement but I took the easy way out had the repair completed and I am regretting NOT listening to the good Doctor as I am continuing to have problems again, with both of my arthritic knees. Dr Bartholomew is by far THE best bone /joint doctor around.

I even took my mom to his office for care. Everyone from front desk, to PT are professional, kind, courteous and friendly. His staff in Rochester hills called after my surgery, even though we had a power outage they continued to call until they finally got through to me just to be sure I was ok.They were sweet and caring and the surgical building is beautiful. Even though I’m not living in Waterford anymore I will still travel down to see Dr. BART for any of my bone/ joint and knee problems. Thank you all for being being the greatest.

Absolutely the best

I first visited Dr. Bartholomew for what I thought was a torn meniscus cartilage in my knee. He was able to quickly diagnose (and surgically remove) a ganglion cyst instead. I had the surgery ASAP and his office was kind enough to work with my insurance company towards the end of my policy. They made sure I would have time to complete physical therapy and not be charged. Dr. Bartholomew is absolutely the best. I would trust no one else with my knee.

Trout fishing

Bone and Joint Specialists Testimonial -Bob

Dr. Bartholomew,

You told me that I would be trout fishing by April 1st. Well, you certainly are a man of your word. In fact even better than that. I caught my first trout of 2013 on March 23, the day after I was finished with P.T. I will recommend you every time I have the opportunity.

Helpful and supportive

Thank you, Dr. Bartholomew for helping me to navigate what could have been a disastrous post op infection. That was a rough leg, lots of lymphadema and you helped me to have a new lease on walking and biking without excruciating bone-on-bone pain! You and Marie are a great team and I really want to thank all of your staff for being so friendly, helpful and supportive. Feel free to post this testimonial to what a great team you have! Loads of love, Merri

Grateful and confident

As a nurse with a new shoulder problem, I wanted a doctor whom I knew would explain things thoroughly, and I knew Dr. Sanford would explain things. Even though I was not in pain anymore, I was glad that I kept my appointment. She spent a great deal of time, even demonstrating what I should and should not do. I was also pleased to have had x-rays done at the office and the doctor to review them that day. I left the office grateful and confident that I knew what to do and what to watch for to protect my shoulder.

Experience was excellent

My physician is Dr. Bartholomew: For the past six months I’ve had pain in both my shoulders, limiting my activity and interrupting my sleep. During a short visit to Michigan my son in law made an appointment for me to see Dr. Bartholomew. My experience was excellent. Dr. Bartholomew and his staff were friendly and professional. Best of all Dr. Bartholomew gave me a clear explanation of what was wrong and the treatment options. I had both shoulders injected that day, with minimal discomfort, and for the first time in months, was able to sleep that night. I am now back in Florida and continue to be pain free. Thank you.

Making a difference in my life

My doctor is Dr. Bartholomew:

Thank you so much for making a wonderful difference with my new knee replacement. My knee is now at 100 percent. I hope that someday in the near future I can have my left partial knee replaced with a full custom signature knee. Again, thanks for making a difference in my life.

Thank you

Dr. Sanford, I was honestly expecting a tearful experience. From what all my friends have told me about their cortisone shot experiences, I was sure it was going to hurt more than help. What a bunch of babies I have for friends. I know I did make some painful looking faces, but it really wasn’t that bad. I felt better toward the end of the night and I did get a comfortable night’s sleep. I did some stretches in the shower last night and have already found a way to stretch at my desk. I am making a conscience effort to recognize my box. I will follow your regimen to the letter, because I really don’t want to have you cut on me if I can help it. Thank you for seeing me on such short notice. Have a wonderful Holiday.

Sincere attitude

Back in August I came in to see Dr Kohen for a neck specialist referral. He referred Dr. Steve Rapp whom I had seen before. Dr. Rapp ordered an MRI which showed a herniated disc in my neck. Dr Rapp and I decided to try therapy as opposed to surgery. It worked out terrific. My pain level has been reduced by about 90%. Daily exercise and NO pain meds with the exception of a couple Advil once or twice a month.

I appreciate the sincere attitude and level of professionalism of the entire staff. I have and will again recommend you whenever I have the opportunity.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Sanford on August 1st. She was not only professional, but very personable and knowledgeable.

At ease and comfortable

Dear Dr. Kohen and Staff,
Thank you so much for making me feel at ease and comfortable with my office call on April 21st. Thanks to your patience and your clear explanations I was much more at ease than I had expected. I hope this will do the trick instead of having surgery. Thanks again, see you at my next appointment.

Trust her knowledge

When I broke my collar bone in 2005 I was very fortunate to see Dr. Brenda Sanford!!!!!  She monitored my progress regularly and took time to explain the healing process to me. In the end when we had no other options she performed surgery that made me feel brand new. I actually felt sad when the time came to say goodbye.

But then there I was 6 years later on 04/20/2011 before her once again for my knee injury. She was very kind, explained my options, and swiftly corrected the problem. She truly does make you feel you are the only patient she had that day. I trust highly trust her knowledge and recommend you ask to see her when you need help. Thanks Doc!!!!!!!!!!!
