Community Orthopedic Medical Group
Dr. Kent Marangi, at Community Orthopedic Medical Group, is a great doctor! I’ve had bicep tendon repair surgery on my shoulder and two knee replacement surgeries. Incredible, I can’t even tell that I’ve had surgery. I am very active and enjoy sports. I am almost 70 and it has not restricted me from doing what I love. Friends, of mine, that have had knee replacement surgery complain their knees are not the same and they are unable to stay active. Honestly, I can’t even tell that my knees have been replaced. They feel the same as before surgery. This was all possible because of Dr. Marangi. I have been recommending Dr. Marangi to friends and people that I’ve met at the gym for orthopedic problems. Even my son and daughter have been attended by Dr. Marangi. I cannot start to express my gratitude to Dr. Marangi for the treatment and care of myself and family
I was treated at COMG by Dr Marandola for an injured rotator cuff. They did a lot of testing incluind xrays and even an MRI to make sure they gave me the best treatment available so I can get back to full motion again. The staff was awesome!
I want to thank the team at COMG for their exceptional service! Rather than having me go the emergency room and wait for hours to be evaluated and treated for a cut on my hand needing stitches, they were able to squeeze me in to see them in their office and get me out the door in a very reasonable time. What a relief that was!
From Judy getting me worked in to the schedule, to the staff at the front desk who checked me in (and surprised me by hand-delivering my insurance card back to me while I sat in the waiting area), to Andrew who roomed and bandaged me, to Charles who treated me, to Nicki, Bonnie and the others, you were all amazing. Thank you so much for your great care and service. Everyone was kind, friendly, professional, and compassionate. You put a positive spin on what otherwise would have been a drawn out and delayed and frustrating experience. My hand and I truly appreciate and thank you!
Dr. Adamson is the ultimate professional.
The office operation is efficient and responsive.
I was referred to Dr. Kent Marangi from a client of mine for my knees which were bone on bone. I decided to do a bilateral total knee replacement so that I could get it all done at once. When Dr. Marangi was doing the replacement of the left knee he discovered that there was also a mcl ligament tear and he spent extra hours to repair that tear. He did an excellent job on both my knees and they are nice and straight. I am so glad I was referred to Dr. Marangi, I’m in week 5 post surgery and feeling stronger everyday. Mission Hospital and Community Orthopedic Medical Group are top notch care providers!
Saw Amanda again for a continuing issue. She was so professional and kind and really took time to listen to my concerns. And very punctual which shows respect for other people’s time. That’s my favorite part.
All the support staff we also incredibly kind and professional. I’ve also seen Dr. Thomas in the past who is equally a 5-star physician.
Would highly recommend anyone in this practice. They’re a class-act.

My experience with Community Orthopedic Group, Dr. Adamson and PA Charles could not have been better.
I am thrilled with this and the results from my surgery. Throughout the six month process, I never had to wait more than fifteen minutes for an appointment. The medical staff as well as the supporting office staff were always 100% professional, compassionate, capable, and best of all, happy!
It was an excellent experience, with excellent results to my well-being.

Very, very pleased with this facility, overall care and Dr. Gardner. I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get an appointment very quickly for a chronic Achilles issue. Dr. Gardner took his time, had new Xrays done and discussed options. We decided to go back to the basics and see if that helps to alleviate my issue. I can't say enough good things about the entire experience so far - all of the staff I interacted with were great. Highly recommend!

Dr. Burdi recently treated my wife who had fallen and suffered a fractured vertebra. We found him to be thorough and caring in the supervision of her recovery. He explained various options and recommended a non-surgical treatment program which resulted in rapid and full recovery. We will consult him for any future needs.

I saw Dr. Adamson yesterday for a follow up visit on my knee. He diagnosed the issue & explained to me a Bakers cyst is extremely painful when it burst. I'm happy now that I can resume my daily activities knowing i'll probably have minor issues for a
while which are normal. Dr. Adamson is an outstanding doctor/surgeon.

I've been under orthopedic treatment since early childhood football injuries to my knees in the early 1970's. While my father was an MD, I've always had best possible medical care but over the past 23 years since I began treatment at COMG, I must say
they are the best orthopedic care I've ever had. 5-6 years ago I sustained a ruptured shoulder but fly back from Phoenix for Dr. Adamson's attention - so glad I did. In 11/19, I had a rt knee replacement by Dr. Adamson.
Same results. Quick recovery, minimal pain, best care I've ever had.

I am posting this for my husband Steve. Dr. Adamson is a very good and caring doctor. He really listens to his patients and shows that he cares about them.
My husband first went to see Dr. Adamson after his primary care physician suggested he see a specialist when his knee pain was not subsiding after several months since the initial onset. Dr. Adamson physically checked my husband's knee and listened carefully to my husband's story as to how the injury ocurred. He then ordered an MRI and was able to identify that my husband had an insufficiency fracture and a slightly torn meniscus. Dr. Adamson is very conservative and not eager to perform surgery unless necessary. He monitored my husband's condition for a little over half a year. Only when we all became convinced that the healing of the insufficiency fracture, which often heal on their own, had plateaued and was no longer improving, did we decide on surgery. Every step of the way, Dr. Adamson carefully explained the options and the possible outcomes.
The outpatient arthroscopic surgery went incredibly smooth. My husband experienced relatively little pain and only needed to take Tylenol for about a week. Dr. Adamson filled the insufficiency fracture with calcium phosphate and he trimmed the minor meniscus tear. The four small incisions completely healed without leaving any scars. My husband's knee is now very sound and he once again has full confidence going up and down stairs, etc. Dr. Adamson believes that this surgery will most likely assure that my husband will not need an artificial knee sometime in the future.
You cannot go wrong seeing Dr. Adamson at Community Orthopedic Medical Group.

What a fantastic facility. They were able to get me in just a few days after I called for an appointment, which I found most unusual and refreshing. The entire staff was kind and helpful, even giving me detailed directions as the location is a bit difficult to locate from normal traffic. Everyone from Celia at the front desk, to the medical assistant, to the X-ray tech and finally to the knowledgeable yet approachable, Doctor Gardner was exceptional. The office was clean and efficient. I hate to wish an orthopedic issue on anyone, but if you find yourself with one I highly recommend Community orthopedic.

- My visit was fine. I did have to wait a while. It would have been nice to have someone come in to say Dr was going to be late.

- My only complaint is the visiting wait time goes way over a proper time, whenever my husband or I have visited the offices.
Elaine O - Customer since 2005

My appointment was on Thur April 20th. On that day i left the office with an MRI ordered for my left knee and with an appt in four weeks to see Dr. Marandola to discuss the results of the MRI and the next step. I was told when i left that someone would
be calling me to schedule an MRI. I heard nothing and on Fri Aril 28th i called the office and left a message asking about the MRI and mentioning that no one had contacted me.
Today is Mon May 1st and i have yet to hear anything from Community Orthopedic so i called Blue Shield. I was informed that the authorization was submitted on Fri April 28th and marked "urgent". So clearly my request for authorization for the MRI was lost in the shuffle and not submitted. Had i not called and left a message on Fri it would still presumably not have been submitted. No one returned my call to explain and apologize for the mix-up, they just submitted the forgotten paperwork and marked it "urgent". I am extremely unhappy, more so for how this was handled after i left a message alerting the staff to their oversight on Fri. If i am unable to get an MRI and have it read prior to my appt with Dr. Mandola i will be beyond dissatisfied.

- I am happy with the care I've received at COMG. I would give this rating a 5 except that recently I had surgery and my first post-op was scheduled with the PA rather than the doctor/surgeon. I had questions related to the surgery
and wanted to talk to my doctor but was told I would be seeing the PA. I ended up scheduling another appointment.
