Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bartolozzi "I approach each patient as if I was caring for a family member.  I believe in a conservative approach as the initial treatment when appropriate. I recognize and understand the importance of educating the patient on the diagnosis as well as the implications and consequences of the diagnosis and treatment options. My goal is to be sure that patients' questions and concerns are addressed during their office visit. 

Having served as the team physician for the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Flyers, I am aware of how important it is for athletes and athletically active people to receive immediate diagnosis and expedited treatment. I apply these principles in the treatment of all of my patients.

Our medical team includes a highly experienced physician assistant, an internationally experienced physical therapist and a skilled and experienced nurse first assistant in the operating room. This experienced team aids in patient education and in communication with other health care providers."

Bristol, PA |
I don't understand the positive reviews. One star is to much. My experience with this man was terrible. In my opinion he is an arrogant egotist. In my opinion he may have been ok 20 years ago, but it's time he retires. My experience with this man was terrible. Horrible experience. I would NEVER recommend this man to anyone. He has done nothing for me. A waste of time and additional pain.

My visit to Dr. Bartolozzi was positive beyond my expectations. I made an appointment with the dr, who already had my confidence because of his fine reputation, & great outcome from my father's double knee replacement at 80 years old. (still back on the ski slopes now at age 90) What I didn't expect was the doctor's kind and caring manner, willingness to take the time to clearly explain things to me, & his associate's, physician's assistant's and nurse's patience and similar awesome helpfulness

It was a second opinion decision that brought me to Aria 3B. From my first visit to Dr. Bartolozzi office, I felt comfortable. It was the first time that someone took the time to tell me what my problem really was, showed me on a diagram and interacted with my questions using my MRI. By the end of the examination we had a game plan on what to do. On December 1st my meniscus surgery was performed. Two weeks later I was walking without pain for the first time since I could remember.

He is very knowledgable, and equally as charismatic!

There is no substitute for experience. Dr. Bartolozzi thoughtfully diagnosed my condition without assuming anything, instead of being dismissive as other physicians have been. After 18 months of searching for answers, Dr. Bartolozzi was the first to find and explain them to me. He showed empathy, sympathy, and clarity, which I greatly appreciated. Talking with him was a pleasure and a revelation...if you are having a non-standard issue, do yourself a favor and make an appointment!

I had a total left knee replacement performed by Dr. Bartolozzi. He is highly professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Bartolozzi gives you a feeling of confidence when discussing such a procedure. He is an excellent doctor and surgeon.
in Aston, PA |
Dr. Bartolozzi is a wonderful doctor and takes time to listen to your concerns and provides thorough examinations. I had two ACL reconstruction surgeries and recovered fully while regaining strength and mobility, oh and just a very tiny scar (surgeries 2006 & 2008). I played soccer in college and was able to get back out on the field in 4 months! I am getting a third surgery (different knee injury) in a few weeks, and I trust Dr. Bartolozzi to fix me up and help get me back to running.

Great guy!
in Mullica Hill, NJ |
Dr. Bartolozzi properly diagnosed and treated my knee injury. He performed a meniscectomy, which is the surgical removal of all or part of a torn meniscus. After the surgery I exited the hospital on crutches with the ability to place full body weight on my knee. Remarkably, I did not experience any pain and was walking without crutches in two days. Also, I was able to resume exercising in nine days. I highly recommend Dr. Bartollozi and his professional customer service oriented personnel.
in Vineland, NJ |
Dr. Bartolozzi is an outstanding Doctor who listens to his patients. He knows his business.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Not only a brilliant physician, but also a very nice guy. I use him for treatment of my knee. I also took my son there because he had lingering pain after injuring his shoulder. Dr. took a half hour talking to him and, in effect, deducing what was wrong based on his replies and how he moved. Came to conclusion it wasn't his shoulder that was giving him trouble, but his clavicle, which was bruised, for a better word, when he fell on the shoulder. No surgery needed, just rehab and exercises.
in Philadelphia |
Dr. Bartolozzi was very caring and informing about surgery. Follow up for post-op was severely disappointing. His staff was no help, not returning phone calls including the nurse. Because of his staff, I will not return not recommend this Doctor and facility.
