Orthopedic and Spine Institute Testimonials

Timothy Mooney

I was at Northern Westchester Hospital for spinal fusion surgery. Dr. Deborah Benzil and Dr. Paris were fantastic, along with her staff who guided me through the process in a very professional and personal manner. The staff at the hospital I cannot say enough about. They were fantastic.


Kathleen Coyle

I was a patient at Northern Westchester Hospital for spinal fusion surgery in March 2010. Dr. Marshal Peris was so fabulous, great surgical skills, supportive and compassionate. Dr. Deborah Benzil came the next morning to get me out of bed. That is uplifting for a spine surgical patient to have one of the surgeons say come on.. let's get up.. The nurses were very attentive and helpful. I can't say enough about Dr. Peris. I recommend him to anyone considering spine surgery or having back pain !

Melissa Beristain

The nursing and technical staff at NWH took such great care of me during my stay (5/13-5/16/13). I was on the 5th floor for 4 days, recovering from spine surgery (cyst removal, fusion and disk space replacement). My nurses and techs were so caring, respectful, kind and courteous. They did everything possible to make me feel comfortable in such a professional manner. I cannot say enough good things about the care I received. I felt like I had guardian angels watching over me while I was recovering. The tech who brought me to the car kindly taught me how to get in and out of a car (since my movement was so restricted.) On the last day, my appetite returned and I found the food to be delicious, prepared exactly as I ordered it. Thank you all for helping me recover so quickly. After just 8 days, I am walking 5 miles! It is amazing.
