“This appointment I had with Dr. Mulligan was the most informative and the most pleasant experience that I’ve had for the last year and a half. Dr. Mulligan has a fantastic bedside manner, and he took the time to explain what my problem was and he spoke directly to me and made me feel like he truly knew what was wrong with my wrist. He also made me think that he could help me with the pain I have been having for almost two years. I am so sorry that I didn’t make an appointment with Dr. Mulligan a year and a half ago, it would’ve saved me a lot of unpleasant experiences. Jen and Amy are also very welcoming and helpful and answered many of my questions. Thanks so much, Dr. Mulligan!”

“I went to see Dr. Mulligan for a second opinion on my wrist. I previously had a broken ulna bone that had since healed. OrthoNY did not believe that by merely removing the hardware in my arm that I would regain the full use of my arm. They told me that my lack of mobility was due to the trauma I had suffered to that arm. I was confident that the hardware was the hold up in my rehabilitation progress. Dr. Mulligan agreed to look at my arm and after a CT scan decided that the device was impeding mobility. He scheduled me for surgery. The surgery was quick and went well. After a week of healing, he ordered two months of physical therapy. I went to Jacqueline Harris at Saratoga Regional Therapy Center and worked hard. Today, I have full use of my arm thanks to Dr. Mulligan. I know three other people who have had hand surgery with him previously (which is why I chose him), and they all have full use of their arms and hands.”

“Dr. Mulligan had been recommended to me by a colleague who had problems with carpel tunnel and was very pleased with her surgeries. Mine was arthritis related and I didn't expect there was much that could be done. Dr. Mulligan explained the options with the arthritis, then treated a tendon issue that was an additional cause of pain and immobility. One that I had no idea existed. As a result of my visit, my pain levels decreased and most importantly, I can close my fingers again. I would highly recommend Dr. Mulligan because in addition to his skill as a physician, he took the time to explain my condition and answer all of my questions.”

He answered all questions and was very friendly. Im sure its not easy to tell an athlete they can't play their favorite sport however he ensured us he had her best interest at heart. Even went so far to provide her with a wrap for her hand that would coordinate with her prom dress!! I actually referred him to a coworker due to how nice and well he treated my daughter.”

“I saw Dr. Mulligan for an existing condition, trigger finger on my right hand. He explained the temporary and long-term treatment of this condition. I left knowing that it was not a curable condition, but one that I might be able to live with until something long-term must be contemplated. I appreciated the time this doctor took to treat me and his manner of explaining it so I completely understood the situation. I appreciated being treated as an intelligent adult who could make self-interested treatment options.”
