Dear Dr. Soloway, Thank you does not seem adequate enough to express how you have helped transform my life as well as the lives of so many others. I may not have had a life-threatening illness, however, for the past twelve years, my health was on a downward spiral. After years of attempting to figure out what was wrong with me, only few issues were included and not fully or accurately treated. I had pretty much accepted that I would live a pain filled life with several limitations. Then you were highly recommended to me. During first appointment you made a prognosis. I questioned it, however, I followed YOUR directives. In a very short time frame, my life started to transform. Currently, I am functioning much more effectively and able to accomplish things I thought I would never be able to do again. For this I am more than grateful. I deeply respect the hard work and diligence you put into gaining the knowledge necessary to diagnose, treat and help each patient that walks through your door. As I have read that some may find your candor and confidence to be rude or arrogant, it is quite the contrary. Your theories and actions are EXTREMELY MERITED, thus validating your confidence. I asked those doubters and complainers... "What value does one's life have whether monetarily or time related?" Answer... There is none... My life is PRICELESS. Your expertise is worth the time, effort and whatever the cost. YOU ARE THE BEST DR. STEPHEN SOLOWAY. Myself and many of your patients, which whom you have helped or saved, will testify to that. May your days and life be bless and peace filled. Forever Indebted
I have had my first appointment with Dr. Soloway and I know already I am on my way to being properly diagnosed and treated. I have only once felt this way about 30 years ago after a visit to University of Penn (and I have been hearing stories that they are not as good as they use to be). Just getting a real physical exam and checking me from head to toe is unheard of today (and I have been to a lot of doctors). He actually read and answered my questions I had written down before I had a chance to ask!!!! (When all other doctors seem to be saying to themselves oh here we go with the paper with a list of questions again). The office was run like a well-tuned machine. I am sure that's why he can handle all his patients, especially all the new patients that he sees, in such a professional manner unlike others in the medical community who can barely manage their office and patients properly. To anyone saying "well plan to be there for hours". I SAY "You mean it's not worth waiting to receive proper, professional care"?? I was always told "the best things in life are worth waiting for"!!! And the polite staff was able to get me an appointment exactly one (1) week from the day I called. UNHEARD OF from a SPECIALIST in his field. The staff also took care of ALL my testing scheduling and medical testing approvals (which in today's medical insurance guidelines must be a nightmare)!!! The lab was still open a 4:50 and my blood work was taken right there with minimal paperwork to fill out. It was also great to have the x-rays taken at the office. I have not had a doctor take the time and interest in a patient and be as thorough as he is. I had read a negative post or two and I don't know what these people expect, but I know they must NOT be interested in getting well because this Doctor is a rare and wonderful professional. I am just glad I ignored the negative posts and I don't want someone to read them and make the mistake of not seeing this doctor. I look forward to my next appointment.
This doctor changed the quality of my life. I was diagnosed with very severe osteoporosis years ago. My feet were fracturing from normal walking and standing. I felt I would never stop having to wear casts. Dr. Soloway put me on medicine that really was for something else and it worked for me. I have had no fractures for over 11 years. I was also repeatedly fracturing my back. Thanks to this doctor I can live my life pretty normal now rather than being afraid to do anything or go anywhere for fear I would get more fractures. Kudos to him. He is my hero!
This office is so busy but a very organized and happy office. The girls are great and help make the time go by. Dr. Soloway is a long wait but oh so worth it. Write down your questions and he will always take as much time as you need to get the job done. Just be prepared and see Audrey in between visits with him. You don't ever have to wait that long. I have been there for 13 yrs. and have been thru a lot with my fibromyalgia and arthritis and had much found relief and new things and products to heal me. Thanks Doc Soloway. You guys are the best of NJ!!
Lyndy is an amazing PA. She has treated myself and my sisters and parents for years and we are so very sad to see her go. It's hard to find a practioner you trust, and we found that in Lyndy. We wish you the best!
A wonderful Doctor! I didn't know why I was hurting so badly, but after seeing Dr. Soloway I found out and he has helped me so much!
I'm 17 years old. I was diagnosed with crohn's disease when I was 13. Shortly after being diagnosed and put on several medications and steroids, I developed serious joint problems. I had severe back pains and joint swelling. My gastroenterologist sent me to see many specialists to try and figure out what was going on. None of them had any answers for me. I would wake up in the middle of the night screaming in pain, and as a result missed a lot of school. I could no longer participate in gym or play any of my favorite sports. After three years of extreme pain and no answers from anyone, my parents finally decided to take me to see Dr. Soloway, who my mom had already been seeing. After seeing him one time, he was able to diagnose me with ankylosing spondylitis. He took x-rays and showed me simple things that so many other doctors had missed! He immediately put me on Remicade infusions within a week and after the first infusion, I felt ten times better with both of my health conditions. He's an amazing doctor! I sent a teacher from my high school to see him and my teacher, for the first time in decades, is feeling relief from his health conditions! Whenever I see him, he tells me how great Dr. Soloway is!
I lost my insurance. Dr S. treated me for free. He has eliminated my knee and back pain.
My Medical Journey spans nearly 2 Decades and featured me as a Patient at some of the Most Prestigious Hospitals spanning the Country. Misdiagnoses coupled with Missed Diagnoses had unfortunately become the Norm. Years of Unimaginable Pain, countless Surgeries and endless vials of every conceivable Medication were given in an effort to shroud the symptoms of an illness other doctors simply couldn't seem to piece together. At times, my symptoms were nothing less than Crippling. It seemed that this was to be my Destiny. After years of this Tumultuous Showdown against my Body, there came the time when I knew my Body had taken a turn for the Worse. You just Feel it and know that if you turn a Blind Eye to it, the end result may not have you waving the Victory Flag in the Winners Corner. By extreme coincidence (luck!), I was referred to Dr. Soloway by a current Patient. Days later I was seen, and in a matter of weeks, he had the necessary tests performed that unveiled the true causes of my disease. Today, I have Hope. Not every day is perfect, but the Good are beginning to crush the Bad Days. I'm confident that the combination of his unparalleled dedication/knowledge and proper medications have me on a Medical Path of Success that will allow me to lead a Better Life. Now my focus is on Tomorrows, instead of struggling to make it through the Todays. Dr. Soloway has not Only Succeeded in Beginning to restore my Health, he has restored my Faith, that while Perseverance is Key sometimes we are just simply placed where we belong to find the Answer. By chance I found Dr. Soloway, and my Family and I will forever be Grateful at this Second Chance and New Beginning. *As a side note, I also Travel 1 1/2 hours to his office each way and it is worth every bit of traffic and tolls along the way!
Do yourself a favor and make an appointment! I was told that I would be there for a couple of hours when I made my first appointment. I didn't mind because the doctor was thorough and the staff is fantastic. Every single person was friendly and competent which is a nice change! I did not have to miss work and travel to go get x-ray and lab tests because everything is right there in the office. I actually saved time. He uses his time to find out your problem and fix it, which is why I went to him.
Dr. Soloway diagnosed and has saved my life with lung medicine for my scleroderma
I waited 17 years and I only needed to make 1 phone call. My 1st impression was the call. I was taken within 48 hrs. I live nowhere near this doc, but heard of him. I called about 6-8 other rheumatology docs and couldn't be seen for months. This is the #1 reason, no one should complain about waiting once you are there-let's face it, good docs are hard to find. I have had an undiagnosed condition nearly 1/2 my life, I have literally gone to Hopkins, Mayo, and other top places. I finally feel, that someone is on track to diagnose and solve my medical mystery. I wish I could thank the person that told my sister about this man. He is brilliant! The best! It is obvious why the man is on Castle Connolly's list of America's top physicians.
He has treated me for 10 yrs. When I went to him I was limping. When I left his office, I walked out normally and I have gone to him ever since.
I love him! He helped me a lot. All of the other patients that I met in his waiting room love him also. He has a New York sense of humor. I think he's the best.
My son was diagnosed with Psoriasis and the treatments that we were using prescribed by other doctors was like putting a Band-Aid on an open wound. Dr. Soloway was able to find a treatment that almost erases the problem and my son is now able to deal with his condition. The doctor is a genius and the results keep you coming back again and again. It's a bit of a commute but I have now recommended him to others and we will travel wherever as long as he is in business. The Infusion staff are very knowledgeable and answer all questions. You leave with satisfaction knowing you have a Doctor who is all about health and healing.
He is a medical detective. He listens to understand your problem then works on finding or eliminating possible diagnoses until he gets to his diagnosis. I knew I was in the right place after just a few minutes. After some tests he diagnosed a problem that 4 other doctors had missed over the past 18 months. He has greatly changed my life for the better and I can't say enough good things about him. As I discuss my doctor quest with friends I am amazed by the number of other people that I know whom he has helped also. He can be very direct and doesn't mince words but you can tell that he really wants to understand and ultimately diagnose your problem and then help you solve it. Listen to the world if you want your life back go and see Dr. Soloway. He is the best and I do mean the best! I was not able to walk due to super morbid obesity. He encouraged me and networked with other doctors to get me back on the track to leading a normal life. I have lost a total of over 290 pounds. His pain management is excellent. I owe him my life and one day soon I will be able to repay him.
As a liaison for a local physical therapy clinic, I had the pleasure to work at Doctor Soloway's office on a daily basis. As I also have worked in other physician's offices in the area, I can attest that his office is the most professionally and proficiently operated. His facility includes on-site radiology, infusion room and clinical blood lab, which makes it very convenient for patients to complete without leaving the office. He also has 2 patient coordinators who schedule off-site medical services for you. His staff is well trained, professional and courteous. First, let me state that Doctor Soloway is my primary choice in medical treatment for my own family. Not only has he helped me and my wife with various medical conditions, but he also averted a possible amputation of my youngest son's toe. As previously stated, since I worked in his office on a daily basis, I have witnessed many patient outcomes personally. There were many times that patients would walk out of an examination room after being treated by Dr. Soloway with tears in their eyes. Thinking that they were in pain from an injection and possibly needing assistance to walk out, I would ask if they needed help. Almost all of them would state that the tears were "tears of joy". Then they would relate how many years that they had been going to various physicians without results and that within a couple of minutes Dr. Soloway had diagnosed and setup a treatment plan for them. I can relate many patients that he diagnosed with cancer and other maladies that had been missed by other physicians. Another case I remember is when he saved a patient's life who had a blood clot moving up her arm.
I personally was misdiagnosed at Cooper and University of Penn. Dr. Soloway ordered the tests no one ever thought of to find my problem. He saved my life!!! I have sent many friends and family, every single one has been extremely pleased. He has a bit of a wait, but there is always a wait for the best! I found him in Philadelphia magazines section of best doctors.....and he is!!
I went to 5 other doctors, this is the only one that found water on my elbow, and took it out with no pain and diagnosed me. I would wait all day for the best care. If you don't, it's your loss.
Dr. Soloway is very knowledgeable and helpful. Some might be put off by his direct and honest approach but I like it. Best described as a medical detective. Once he gets on the trail of your problem he keeps digging until he gets to the solution. Within a few weeks diagnosed a problem that I had seen several other doctors for before.
Some people say that Dr. Soloway is cocky, he's not cocky, he's confident, and with good reason. He is the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever met and he see your illness as a personal challenge and trust me, this man does not lose. He has done for me what no other doctor has been able to do, give me a quality of life that I never expected to have again. His infusion team is the best. Not only is Dr. Soloway the best...he hires the best as well. Now if we could just get him to stop being a Mets fan!
15 years ago Dr. Soloway saved my life, when I was overlooked for 6 months by 10 doc's; Thank you!
