Dr.Petrella did both hips and a carpal tunnel release. As far as I am concerned, he is a god. Quick recovery time and little pain afterwards. T. Billias,Dunnellon,FL

The doctor was great, BUT the billing department is horrible. I always paid in full, but years later they "audited" and claimed I owed past charges. They refused to cooperate with Blue Cross to settle the claims.

I have had great experience with Dr Patrella, David, and Shelby but the staff is another story. The staff at this office is rude, not helpful, and not very kind. They always seem to be in their own little world. In 10yrs years I have been going there, I swore I would never go back because of the STAFF, but I wanted the best Doctor/PA care around. I guess if you want the best doing surgical procedures on you then one must deal with the sour apples that he employees. It's a real shame. Staff 1?

Dr. Petrella has been my doctor since 2001. He has performed 3 surgeries and many procedures on me. I have total confidence in his skills. His bedside manner is amazing. He explains complicated things in a way that is easy to understand. Prior to surgery, he makes sure that all of my questions were answered. His PA Dave is the best I've ever known. His staff is very busy, but friendly. Be prepared to wait a while in his office though as his practice has become much larger than when I began.
