Very satisfied with the outcome of my right knee replacement. It's a year later and I am going back to have my left knee replacement done by Dr. Pallante. I would highly recommend Orthopedic Associates of Muskegon for your knee issues. — Greg W.

Dr. Pallante and staff are friendly, professional, and helpful. He takes times to explain fully orthopedic and healthy solutions for joint and hip replacement. I would recommend him for those surgical procedures. I had a successful hip replacement experience. — Venus N.

Dr. Pallante did a excellent job on my partial knee replacement. The staff was excellent and kept me well informed. He did such a good job I was back to work in 4 weeks with little or no pain. Good job Martin and thank you very much. — Carey K.

As a retired physician, I chose Dr. Pallante over many other great choices. I have observed his practice of his speciality over the years and have been amazed with how thorough and thoughtful his exams and findings have been for the children under my care. In addition, his communication skill are top notch. A+++ from me. — Dan M.

I always find the staff friendly, efficient and helpful. I’ve had two surgeries at the Surgery Center, and I was very well-prepared by the staff and Dr. Pallante. The nurses who prepped and cared for me after surgery were amazing. Dr. Pallante has always been very kind and thorough with his examinations and conversations with me. He explains things well and takes time to answer my many questions in an understandable manner. He’s done two surgeries (left total knee replacement and left shoulder), and I’m extremely pleased with the results. I’m hopeful that my current right shoulder issues can be resolved without surgery, but if it is necessary, I know that he is a skilled surgeon who will do his best for me. I highly recommend OAM and Dr. Pallante. — Mary N.

This was a life changer! The staff and surgical team are amazing! The care that is given to ensure the best treatment is outstanding. This is the best I have felt in 6 years of dealing with a painful hip that limited my enjoying daily functioning and social activities. Dr. Pallante is an amazing doctor and person. He really cares about your well-being before and after the procedure. I cannot thank the entire OAM staff and surgical team enough for the care and personal manner they displayed for my comfort and care throughout! — Mark B.

My husband and I have been to OAM multiple times over the last 5 years. Dr. Martin Pallante did a hip replacement on my husband, and one knee replacement on myself. I am getting my second knee replacement in August. Dr. Pallante is very thorough, kind, and genuinely cares about his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Pallante for any orthopaedic problems to my friends and family. — Jodi B.
