Provider Reviews

My honest opinion is he is. Poor orthopedic specialist. He has failed to listen, provide any measurable help or assistance and has always maintained a very rude elitist behavior

Review for Dr. Pando

Dr. Raffel is a compassionate, caring doctor. He spends time with you, listens to you. If he cannot fix the problem he referres you to someone who will. I had to get an MRI and the Dr's assistant Christine, set up and made the appointment for me.

Review for Dr. Pilkington

First time surgery for me and Dr. Farrell instilled confidence in me from the start. All went extremely well, I was up and walking without a cane in 2 1/2 weeks. He explained everything clearly and has good bedside manner.
