About Me

Care Philosophy

I knew I wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon when I was in high school, and I saw what my dad did when he was on the sidelines of my football team and how he would take care of some of the injuries that would occur. And I said, Boy, that's the kind of...

What People Say About Dr. Anthony Romeo, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Romeo is a excellent surgeon/physician. He did a total shoulder replacement of my right shoulder 2017. This year 2018, Dr. Romeo will be replacing my left shoulder. The right shoulder moves smoothly, now I can reach above my head, behind my back, everything a normal shoulder should do. I have complete confidence in Dr. Romeo. He explained everything, answering all my questions, never rushed through my appointment. I wish him great success in his career in New York! Thank You Dr. Romeo!

Dr Romeo is the most knowledgeable, caring Doctor. Thank you for all you have done for me. The injections in my shoulders were not painful at all and you were always so kind to me. I will always be grateful for the care you provided me. I will miss you. Good luck on your new journey. Who knows maybe I will fly to were you are going just to see you, and if I ever needed surgery, I would come to you, God Bless, S.K.

I have had many contacts with doctors and surgeons over the last few years. It is very hard to get a quick appointment but after the initial wait ! Which is well worth it rest assure you will definitely feel like it is a family member caring for you . My surgery was difficult and was well prepared for and went off without an issue! I can’t say enough about how well I was treated by dr Romeo and staff!

I heartily second all the positive comments here. Personable and accomplished in the extreme, dr Romeo and team are warm and smart and make it all look easier than it is. I had a very challenging shoulder to replace but this was so. Much. Easier. Than I’d imagined. Can’t say enough. Be not afraid!

It takes some time to get an appointment, but for me it was well worth the wait. To be honest your really a number in a rather busy office. But Dr. Romeo, his PA's, and friendly support staff all do a great job taking the time necessary to work with you all along the process. I found Dr. Romeo to be very personable, and anything but arrogant given all his accomplishments. Your questions and concerns have all been heard before, and you can't help but feel reassured and supported when you leave.

Excellent medical care and awesome support staff. Dr. Romeo addressed my complicated shoulder Injury. He was my 4th opinion and I’m so glad I waited to receive care under his skilled hands and knowledgeable team. Staff was extremely helpful with insurance papers, LOA forms and prescriptions. Clear pre -op guidelines and accurate post-op expectations were reassuring.

Both my husband and I have consulted with Dr. Romeo. When we researched leading shoulder experts, we found Dr. Romeo to be one of the best in the country and perhaps the best in Chicagoland. What we like best about Dr. Romeo is his willingness to try alternatives to surgery first. He is open to physical therapy and other non-surgical methods of healing and pain control. And if surgery is needed, going with the best is always a smart move!

Dr. Romeo and his staff are always professional, courteous and accommodating, both during business hours and after. I have had two surgeries with him and am very pleased with the results. I completely trust him for any shoulder issues, he is the best there is.

Staff is rude and arrogant. The PA got on the phone and screamed at me because I wanted to know why I had to repeat imaging. Then she lied and told the dr I refused to get images. It's a very dramatic and unprofessional place. I waited 2 hours to see a doctor and then they said I didn't have an appointment. Terrible practice. I took the day off of work to come in and then was not seen.

I had my shoulder replacement surgery almost 2 years ago, (February 12, 2015). I must say that I am very happy with my results 2 years later. I would highly recommend Dr Romeo if you need this surgery. Dr Romeo is very thorough in his description of what takes place and what to expect afterwards.
