Review of Dr. Dunleavy

- in Waterbury , CT |

Dr John Dunleavy performed hip replacement surgery Sept 7, 2018 in Danbury Hospital I was out of bed and walking same day and I was released to go home in two days to continue my recovery. Dr Dunleavy was very thorough on telling my wife and I exactly what he was going to do and what complication there could be. He came out and explain everything to my wife following the surgery. I wish there was more Dr John Dunleavys in this world! Today is two week post op, I am walking over 1/2 mile a day.

Review of Dr. Dunleavy

-Oxford, CT |

After my son had go to Dr. Dunleavy for a knee injury and received excellent care , he was the only doctor I would consider going to for my knees. For many years I was in pain with my knees and could barely do daily activities or walk up the stairs. After having both knees replaced at the same time, I am finally pain free and can do my daily activities and walk up and down stairs with ease. Dr,. Dunleavy treated me with concern, care and respect. I would and do recommend him.

Review of Dr. Dunleavy

- in Ridgefield, CT |

Dr. Dunleavy has performed hip replacement surgery on both of my hips. I am amazed at how pain free I am and what a wonderful job he did. I find him to be personable, responsive and thoughtful in answering my questions and concerns, and I would recommend him to anyone. The difference is amazing; I was in constant debilitating pain and unable to walk up steps or carry even the lightest object. I am very grateful to him for the excellent care and overall improvement in the quality of my life.

Review of Dr. Dunleavy


Dr. Dunleavy simply DOESN'T CARE ABOUT PATIENTS. He thinks everything he does is perfect as any patient who has had a joint replacement bandage pulled off by him will tell you. He has a standard line about how excellent and perfect the wound looks. My scar is very crooked and still deemed "excellent" by this very obnoxious, arrogant doctor. He sends patients to St Francis in Hartford because he makes a higher salary if he operates there. $$$$$ Treats patients like objects. Secretary is awful.

I found Dr Speigel to be an excellent listener, and he gave me excellent information about my health in general, as well as a thorough examination. He was respectful and pleasant and I would definitely recommend him.

Review of Dr. Spiegel

- in Danbury, CT |

I'm sorry to say that I agree with the previous patients. Dr. Spiegel insulted me to the point of tears, and I'm a girl from the Bronx. That's not easy to do. If I didn't hear what he said with my own ears, I wouldn't have believed it. It's not that he has no bedside manner, his manner was berating. I travel to see another doctor now, but it's so worth it.

Review of Dr. Spiegel

-Brookfield, CT |

I agree with the last reviewer from Danbury. I was treated teh wrong way but he was also very gruff and insulting. Then he prescribed a medication wrong. I became very sick for several days. I called to tell him that another doctor told me I was sick because he precribed the medication incorrectly. When I walked in for my next appointment the first thing he asked was how the medication worked for me. I couldn't believe it. Found a new rheumatologist who is his complete opposite and improved.

Review of Dr. Sealey


Dr. Sealey performed surgery on my Achilles' tendon and did great work. It was a complex surgery and the results are excellent. He is kind and considerate. My sole complaint was being left in exam area for almost 2 hours while the receptionists went to lunch. No one even checked on me. The receptionists in this office leave a lot to be desired so always talk to Dr. Sealey's receptionist directly. Dr. Sealey is a fine surgeon.

Review of Dr. Digiovanni

- in Danbury |

Hello, I had my carpal tunnel surgery done by Dr. Digiovanni a few years back. I just want to say that he was very knowledgeable and friendly. The surgery went very well, and the pain was gone. No complications. I have been pain-free since then. I was worried about having the surgery but he told me how it was going to go and he was true to his word. I recommend him or at least talk to him and get his opinion. No more walking around holding my arm or sleeping with it hanging off the bed. Thanks
