I finally accepted the fact that I had to have carpal tunnel surgery after years of denial. The brace and injections were no longer helping this needle pointer to the point that my quality of life was suffering. I was recommended to Dr Panozzo and from my first visit, thru surgery to my post-op follow-ups I had the best care and was treated to a level of professionalism that I have come to expect at Monti. I highly recommend Dr Panozzo and his staff.

I was referred for a complicated wrist fracture. He explained everything and I knew what to expect after surgery. Everything went as well as I could have hoped. He has me back to playing baseball!

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!

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.

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.

Poor bedside manor! I recalled seeing him before and he brushed it off as if I did not utter a word. He gave poor examples of my condition and when I clarified his example then he got short with me as if I was not allowed to speak or give my opinion. He went as far as stating that he will be "paid if he gives me treatment or not". This is a typical example of the condescending attitudes that help foster mistrust of Montefiore physicians. He is one of the reasons why health inequities exists.
