The doctor and his staff were great! all my questions were fully answered and I was left with a sense of well being about my choice of surgeons. The operation went well and the recovery was a piece of cake. I would highly recommend Dr. Colacchio to anyone, including friends and family.

My husband was in so much pain he was unable to sleep or to even lie down. Dr. Alexander removed a cyst on his spine and he was INSTANTLY free of pain and slept in his own bed the night of his surgery. Dr. Alexander was thorough, compassionate, and informative. Would highly recommend him.

I found Dr. Jackson to be lacking in listening skills and did nothing that I could not have had done at the Walk In clinic after the Walk In Clinic sent me to the ER. Total waste of my time and money. I would not go to him for anything.

the good doctor did a reverse complete shoulder replacement. My rehab was slow, but it turned out very well. My rotator cuff was completely severed. Couldn't use my right arm. Now I can. I have limitations, but no pain. It is almost normal. He did a great job. The whole team is great.

I had surgery on my bunions several years ago. My right big toe has been drifting outward and the the second toe is clearly a hammertoe and was never diagnosed. I have seen Dr. white and he has never offered to fix this. I am very disappointed

Every appointment seemed like an eternity, waited 1hr and 15 minutes one time and that was a good day. The waiting area could use new carpets and is not sanity. Seems to take advantage of people or put himself above try them.

Review for Dr. MacGillivray

Dr. Colacchio performed a total knee replacement for me on a leg that had prior breaks in the tibia and ankle. I understand it was more challenging than other more routine situations. A year later, I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend Dr. Colacchio.
