Review for Dr. Scannell

I have had Dr Zappala for many years to treat recurring stones. He is extremely skilled and knowledgeable and I always have confidence in his treatment options. As well, he is personable and kind. Highly recommend.

Review for Dr. Zappala

I had my 2nd follow up visit today 2 months after total knee replacement. Happy to say I feel ten years younger with my new knee! Best decision to have it replaced and not even one overnight in a hospital. Thank you, Dr. Andriola.
