The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Schoifet.
“My experience was very good. Dr Schoifet explained everything that happen with the second knee surgery and recovery has steady and progressive.”
– Gerald R.
“The first knee replacement on March 27th was an eye opening experience. The facility is great, the nurses were exceptional and since my husband couldn't stay with me because he was sick, this was a very good thing. The pain was expected and getting to therapy within 5 days was good. I recovered quickly. The second knee done on August 3rd went well and my left knee has a lot more movement than the right, but I still have lots of night pain with both knees, more from the left. Sometimes, I don't sleep much because the sides of my knees are so sore. I've gone back to using the meloxicam every day and sometimes need a pain pill or a sleeping pill to guarantee sleep, but I expected this. I have because a recumbent bike user and don't mind doing the work to get the knees back in shape. I still can't kneel in church, just too much pain yet. That and getting down on the floor and up again were my goals with these surgeries and I hope I achieve both of these goals. All in all, both experiences were great and if I had know how easy they would be (sans the pain) I would have scheduled the 2nd knee closer to the first. Thank you for the wonderful care I received.”
– Theresa G.
“So far I am very pleased with all the doctors and nurses. I am scheduled for surgery on Dec. 28 for a total right knee replacement. Everything I hear about your practice has been very positive. This is my first major surgery and I trust Reconstructive orthopedics fully.”
– Peter V.
“Excellent, caring, service. Explained all procedures totally. All team members from the front door, to the good bye were attentive and friendly. Took baby steps and were able to calm my fears. Dr. Schoifet's PA's are GREAT. Thank You!”
– Conrad D.
“I was extremely hesitant to have my knee replaced having heard too many horror stories. Then I researched the minimally invasive procedure pioneered by Dr. Schoifet. Having scheduled him to replace my knee was one of the best decisions I made. He and his staff allayed my fears and answered any questions I had.”
– Patricia W.
“The experience of my complete right knee replacement was an excellent one and I would highly recommend Dr. Schoifet to anyone needing this surgery. He has operated on both of my knees and I am very pleased with the outcome. God bless you, Dr. Schoifet.”

“Dr. Schoifet is very pleasant & competent in his dealing with me. I feel very fortunate to have have chosen his help .”

“Dr Schoifet advised to strengthen my legs by riding a stationary bike. He also said I have a deteriorated right knee and will eventually need a new knee, but I have some time before that happens. He gave me a cortisone shot and told me to check back in 6 months to see how I was doing. I am riding a stationary bike 30 minutes a day. So far I am doing pretty good.”
– David K.
– Walter M.

– Peter B.

– Nancy V.
“One week out everything going very well.”

– Linda D.
“I love Dr. Schofeit. He's very professional, but also warm and comfortable with a great sense of humor. Another practice told me I needed a knee replacement and I wasn't quite sure that was the case so I went to Dr. Schofeit (who was highly recommended by quite a few people) for a second opinion. He advised I did not need a replacement yet and probably won't for several more years. After a couple cortisone shots, I feel fabulous and I tell everyone to go to him with knee issues. Yeah to Dr. Schofeit for being a Dr. who puts your patients first instead of trying to profit off them.”
– Fran C.

– Judith G.
“Have utmost confidence in his skill”
– Elizabeth H.
“I had heard of Dr.Schoifet, MD excellent reputation. All of my doctors are at Penn and I asked two of my physicians who they would go to both mentioned a doctor from Penn and Dr. Schoifet and I asked again which one would you go to and they both said Dr. Schoifet I would consider that a high recommendation. During my initial visit, I found Dr. Schoifet to be very kind and outgoing I felt at ease while he went over the entire procedure. I would recommend him as an excellent physician who is there for you. I am having my left knee done in May and I know I will be in great hands. I was very lucky to get an appointment with one of the best physicians!”
– Elizabeth W.
“From the first time I met Dr. Schoifet, I was completely confident that my knee replacement procedure would be successful. He explained the pre-surgery process, the surgery, and what to expect in the weeks after that. We were partners. I needed to follow his instructions, and he would take care of my knee. We did it! I will continue to follow his teachings in the months and years to come!”
– Marlene S.
“The problems I had with medication when having my left knee replaced got resolved by the listening and caring of the medical team for the replacement of my right knee. Every question or concern I had following the surgery got answered in a very timely way. My left knee was a total success. I expected the same for my right knee and had a straightforward time of it.”

– Jacob G.
“Went to Dr. Schoifet with pain radiating from my right knee to my ankle after any exertion, even walking. He suggested the pain may be from a pinched nerve in my lower back, which has happened before. He gave me a cortisone shot in the right knee, and the next morning, I worked in my daughter's garden, doing much walking heavy carrying, bending, and kneeling. My knee feels great — not a single pain. Dr. Schoifet knows what he is talking about.”

– Robert P.
“Dr. Schoifet did a fantastic job of replacing my left knee. It was beyond my expectations because I was out raking leaves on a ninth day and even surprised the staff at Ivy Rehab when at that same time, the ninth day, I could bend my knee 110 degrees. I was thrilled. The team was patient and helpful always, and I felt supported throughout my experience. Thanks for being the absolute best at what you do. I recommend you to everyone I meet that is struggling with joint pain.”
– Catherine M.
“An excellent experience, Dr. Shoifet made me feel comfortable with my decision to have knee surgery. I have complete confidence in him and Virtua Hospital. I had both knees done within six months and feel great. The follow-up appointments are on time, and patient assistants are excellent appointments are handled smoothly. Thank you for giving me the quality of life back. Let me say I had three different opinions before making my choice, and I knew when I spoke to Dr. Schoifet I was ready and my decision was the right one.”
– Barbara Y.
“Dr. Schoifet was entirely the best. I saw him in January to talk about a knee replacement. I'd been putting it off for a while. He recommended that I get a bike and ride it to have a better outcome, and come back to see him in March. That was the best advice ever. I had my knee replaced in April and sailed through the recovery and physical therapy. Dr. Schoifet also was so kind about scheduling the surgery. He fit me in quickly due to my upcoming scheduled bladder cancer treatments so I could have time between the knee replacement and the treatment. That helped me deal with one thing at a time. All of the staff were very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I recommend Dr. Schoifet to everyone.”
– Caren O.
“Dr. Schoifet provided info regarding the surgery beforehand, his PA suggested a biking regimen to prepare me for surgery, during his post-op visit, Dr. Schoifet reassured me re some bleeding, how to treat it and what to expect, and during my follow-up visit, he provided additional info to aid in my recovery. Based on many recommendations, I felt very confident in his expertise, and from my own experience, I am confirmed in my confidence in him. I certainly will recommend him to others.”
– Judith P.
“I had both knees replaced — the first one in January & the second one in May. I had an excellent experience. Everything went well.”
– Kathleen G.
“I had previously seen a local physician and what I experienced was the worst treatment and pain. My knee became worse after that visit. A friend of mine told me, about a friend of hers that had seen Dr. Schoifet and she recommended him. My 1st visit and my faith were restored. I had a knee injection and didn't even feel it. I followed his recommendations, and although I've had a few flare-ups, he and his staff have been fantastic — a godsend. I highly recommend them.”
– Cornelia D.
“I had both my knees did by Dr. Schoifet. The second knee four months ago I walked out of the hospital and kept improving from then on. I do have some pain, but I am slowly getting back to my activities. I try to go to the gym every day and bike 35 minutes do leg machines then I walk in our indoor pool. I did this also before surgery. I think this worked.”

– Marie M.
“I had a replacement of my right knee. I saw both Dr. Schoifet and his PA Kristen on alternating office visits to determine the status of my knee and the appropriate treatment. I was diagnosed with bone on bone and recommended for knee replacement. Different options for procedures and anesthesiology were presented and explained. I made my choices and set dates for surgery. I was also given the choice of starting Rehab at home or going to a facility.”
– Linda H.
“The whole surgical experience was quite comprehensive. I was informed from the first appointment up to post operative discharge of what to expect and how to handle every aspect related to my procedure.”
– Jim M.
“I started seeing Dr. Schoifet about a year before my surgery. From the start he was up front about my diagnosis and the timeframe that would eventually result in surgery. He was always honest in a tactful way which was opposite of my experience with other doctors. If anyone has to go through a double knee replacement I can't think of a better physician, practice and hospital.”
– Celeste M.
“I had total knee replacement done on both of my knees 6 weeks apart at the age of 60. Left knee on 3/16/2016 and the Right knee on 4/27/16. Both surgeries went better then I could have ever expected. I was back at the gym within 4 weeks after surgery and was back to my spin class with in 8 weeks. Dr. Schoifet and his entire staff are outstanding. They have the entire procedure so planned out from the time you schedule your surgery right through your therapy. If you do exactly as directed by Dr. Schoifet and his staff your surgery will be a success. Prior to having the surgery I could not walk or stand for more then 15 minutes before my knee would swell up now I don't even think about how long I stand or walk there is no more discomfort or swelling. I have to say I did get my life back!!!”
– Ann Y.

I and my doctor Scott Schoifet are very pleased with my progress only two weeks after surgery I'm up and walking, Healing nicely no issues with my recovery medications or Physical Therapy program. I'd recommend the Doctors and Staff to everyone, Oh, I did that already, to at least five friend and two of my Physicians!”
– George F.
“I had a very good experience with Dr. Schofiet. I never had much swelling and at about the four month mark, I really had no pain and would not really think about my knee.

– Cheryl M.
“This practice knows what they are doing. So easy to navigate through appointments, staying on schedule and following up. Dr. Schoifet is a very compassionate, no frills, good for you surgeon.

– Joseph A.
“I came in for my six-week post-op visit with a bunch of questions and concerns. Within a few minutes, Dr. Schoifet had completely put me at ease by addressing every issue without me asking a question. I was comforted by the positive outcome of my total knee replacement surgery and by the outpatient therapy I had been prescribed. I need to continue to heal a few more weeks to achieve the goal that Dr. Schoifet set for me: "after 3 months, you'll never know you have a new knee". I am well on my way!”

– Catherine S.

“I felt very confident that I had made the right choice in choosing Dr. Schoifet and Virtua to have a total knee replacement. Along with the Dr. visits, computer videos and the preparation seminar, I felt prepared for surgery. I had also retained the services of a trainer at my gym to further enhance my physical fitness. The care I received at the hospital was excellent for the most part, particularly during the surgery and first day and night of recovery. 1.3 years post surgery, I have returned to my former level of activity. I am an active 67 year old female who lifts weights three times a week, and walks and or rides a bike almost daily.”
– Janet F.
“Great experience. Very professional and organized. I highly recommend Dr. Schoifet and Reconstructive Orthopedics.”
– Barbara F.
“I have been seeing Dr. Schoifet since July 2015. He was very thorough in his review of my situation and realistic about what to expect. While knee replacements were in my future, he presented things to do to delay the surgery but at the same time prepare me physically for the surgery when scheduled. He said I had about a year and he was right on. A year later I had not one but both knees done 6 weeks apart. The surgery was not as bad as I expected but I will share that the physical therapy was tough. Despite the effort required of pt it was worth it as the surgical procedure allowed me to get through the pt sooner than I expected.”
