Review of Dr. Panozzo


Dr. Panozzo is very kind and efficient. He is not the type to rush into surgery if not needed. I have been seeing him since 2011. Last year I fractured my wrist and he guided me through the whole process which required surgery. Postoperatively some pain was normal but after a few weeks, I had no pain in my wrist and am so happy I went to see him!

Review of Dr. Panozzo

- in Bronx , NY |

Dr. Panozzo is an excellent physician. I was involved in a car accident and fractured my wrist. He preformed surgery to fix a complicated wrist fracture. My post op care was great and he took the time to explain and assure me me that everything is going to be fine. To this day my wrist functions great without pain. I am able to return to my activities without complaints. I would recommend him to anyone who has a hand and elbow problem. I just can't say enough good things about Dr. Panozzo.

Review of Dr. Blum

- in New York, NY |

My family and I are very grateful to Dr. Blum and all his staff for giving me the attention required and for allowing me to walk again! For over a year I have consulted numerous orthopedic doctors, but everyone of them was not willing to perform a surgery due to my complicated knee condition and instead have only prescribed me pain killers. Dr. Blum, was the first surgeon to recommend surgery. He reformed an incredible job on my knee, allowing be to walk again! Thank you from Zinaida!

Review of Dr. Blum

-Bronx NY |

My Mom's experience with Dr.Blum was awful. He was cold & insensitive to her condition. All her visits were short. She has other ailments, & she's active & she thought he could help her. All he recommended was a hip replacement. She saw him several times & was in pain. She did x-rays & a MRI. He didn't offer pain medicine or management, or physical therapy. He wanted to give her another cortisone shot knowing the first shot didn't work. She cried about her visit. We're looking for a Dr who cares

Review of Dr. Lomita

- in Bronx |

I would definitely recommend Dr. Lomita. He was extremely concise with no unnecessary fluff, which is a trait that you should want your surgeon to have. His surgical skills have proven to be superb! My wrist began to heal quickly with limited pain and swelling. I'm progressing way quicker than originally anticipated because of him.

Review of Dr. Panozzo


Absolutely terrible doctor. After I broke my hand, I saw him for next steps. He spend no more than 5 minutes with me during both my initial and follow up visits, and prescribed "aggressive physical therapy," and said everything looked great. My hand wasn't feeling too much better so I got a second opinion, where I was told I needed surgery, otherwise I would become arthritic in 3 to 5 years. As a musician who is only 21, this would have been unacceptable. Truly horrendous doctor. Shameful.

Review of Dr. Blum

- in Bronx, New York |

Dr. Blum was referred to me by a friend. He was courteous and friendly. He explained the X-rays and the options that were offered at his clinic. Upon making my decision, the procedure was scheduled within 30 days. The hospital stay required two days and i was in out-patient physical therapy with in four weeks. This Doctor listens to his patients, and incorporates as many suggestions as possible to make the individual's procedure easier. He is one of the best in New York.
