    Patient testimonials


    Dr. Sanjit Konda is one of the best Orthopedists that I have encountered. His knowledge, professionalism and medical acumen are unsurprassed. After a major auto accident that I was involved in, I was brought to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Konda’s excellent surgical skills restored me to normal health and mobility. I just can’t thank Dr. Konda enough for all that he did for me. He is a superb physician. God bless him!


    Priscilla Parameswarran

    Queens, New York

    Dr. Konda is an amazing doctor. He definitely knows what he is doing. He has gotten me back on my feet again and back to work with all three injuries. He is caring, intelligent, and knows his stuff for sure. I have highly recommended him to family, friends and coworkers


    Elizabeth Mendez

    Queens, New York

    It took a year and a half to finally feel like my true self – but in a new body. Sometimes trauma can be a gift, and the love, care, and understanding that comes of it all the more significant and meaningful. I relearned how to walk (now slowly jogging again), and dance, but more importantly love and respect myself and my second chance at life after a perilous, dark time. I love my scar, it is like a work of art, my guardian angel, and I will never forget the doctors who built me back up. Thank you Dr. Ganta.


    Orlando Tirado Amador

    Queens, New York

    I want to thank Dr. Ganta For doing a great job on my surgeries and for always being there when I needed him. I am very grateful to him.


    Luis Rivera

    Queens, New York

    Dr Ganta does great work. He is 100%. And everyone who works with him – Mariah, Sara, Monica and everyone at the front desk is great and cares about me a lot

    Dr, Azad, We hope all is well and simply want to share our sincere appreciation for your caring attendance yesterday. Your compassion in explaining our options to consider the next steps was so important. At this stage we look forward to the next visit.

    I was struck by a automobile on July 30th. Dr Konda and his team performed a internal fixation surgery on my leg after having both my tibia + tibula broken along with 2 other surgerys to hel me regain my life back. The surgeries went very well. I am gratful for him throughout this life changing ordeal. He was very kind and professional. It is because of him I belief in system I can walk again. Thank you Dr Konda for all you do. I am still healing, however as of now I have started with the progress.


    Danielle Lovelace

    Queens, New York

    After my MVA on 1/1/22, I suffered multiple injuries and was rushed to Jamaica Hospital. Dr. Ganta was an angel that day! He performed over 12 surgeries between my friends and I. We were all afraid and overwhelmed and Dr. Ganta helped ease our concerns and did an amazing job! He walked us through our after care and helped me believe that I will be okay again. I cannot thank Dr. Ganta, Mariah and his entire staff for all their patience and care throughout this challenging time for me. You are helping improve life’s and are walking in purpose! Appreciate you all!
