    As a tennis teaching professional, I have had several sports related injuries over the years, and although I have tried many other orthopedic surgeons, including many affiliated with professional sports teams, I can unequivocally say that Dr. Bavaro is the best!

    I went to see Dr. Bavaro about pain in my knee. He spent a lot of time with me. He made some jokes. And I can tell you try to make me laugh to take my mind off of the pain in my knee. I thought his instructions and the pain has started to get better. I'm going to follow up with him and I'm hopeful of a positive outcome.

    Dr. Bavaro was kind and compassionate. He took his time with me and I felt as though I had his undivided attention. He explained what he thought the problems were with my hip, and gave me a plan of action. I look forward to my follow up visit.

    Finally a doctor who listened to what I had to say and took everything I said seriously! My knee had been bothering me for over a year and now I'm on track to feeling better! I had a total knee replacement and am feeling wonderful! A year ago I could barely walk and now I'm back to playing golf and tennis and am pain free. Dr. Bavaro helped me get my life back!

    Dr. Bavaro performed an ACL surgery on me. He informed me what to expect before and after. He approached me at the bed side before surgery and made me feel at eased. I'm very pleased. My knee is almost the same as it was before my injury. my recovery was a breeze. I recommend anyone including my family to doctor Bavaro!

    I saw Dr. Bavaro about a knee tear- he first suggested to get a MRI to confirm grade of tear and draw a conclusion. A week later I went back for a followup to discuss my options - he suggested I try physical therapy first to rectify the issue and if that didnt work could discuss other options. Let me say this most Dr's now a day's would opt for the surgery right away to make as much money as possible well NOT Dr. Bravaro. I would highly recommend him to anyone as his ethics come b4 his pocket!

    Dr. Bavaro demonstrated patience, care and compassion. I have been suffering in pain for quite some time and was pleasantly surprised by the high level of care that he provided. Thank you Dr. Bavaro!

    BEWARE!!! I am a 25 year old in great shape who has literally been hobbled by this man. I was supposed to get a loose body removed from my knee which he claimed was an easy procedure and a 2 week recovery. Over 2 months later I am still hardly able to walk or function. He lied in all of my medical records about me having swelling in my knee prior to surgery, about the pain being worse before surgery, etc. Oh and the best part, the loose body is still in my knee!

    The staff is unreliable. I needed forms to be filled out by the doctor for my job. I faxed it the first time it was not received. The second time I faxed it I called to confirm that it was received. I was told that it was by a staff member named Kathy. When I called to inquire if the doctor had filled out the form no one knew anything about it. I will probably lose my job because of the incompetence of this current staff. I will not be returning to this office.
