Excelent experience
I had a torn Interior Cruciate Ligament from a whitewater river running accident. He offered me two alternatives one was arthroscopic surgery. Since there was still a small portion still attached an alternative would be to allow it to grow back with working through a complex set of exercises via Physical Therapy. I went with PT and my knee fully recovered without surgery. My Wife broke her ankle in three places and he pinned the pieces together. She now is fully recovered without any signs that the ankle was ever broken except for a very small scar. Twenty years later I again hurt my knee by lifting to much weight. This tore the cartridge and left a small bone fragment in the knee. He did arthroscopic surgery and now 8 week later I have no signs of any injury except the small scar. I think the world of the Doctor and have highly recommend his services to two of my friends who think they are supermen.

He's doctor SUPERIOR to me!! He performed 2 surgeries on me in July. I had 2 meniscus tears on my right knee and a lipoma on my shoulder. Both look and feel much better. His staff is pretty amazing too. If you have a surgical issue, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands. Thank you Barry and staff!!

I would never see or advise anyone to see this quack again. The leg he operated on did not heal & got infected so he operated again 6 weeks later, still did not heal, still was infected so I went to a different surgeon who operated a couple weeks later. He was my hero!! Because of what the quack did, my surgical leg is almost an inch shorter & walking has been tough.

Entering the office, the staff was very pleasant and helpful . As for Dr. Saperia, I could have not asked for a more concerned Dr. He Is very concerned about his patience. About their concerns and issues, I had fluid buildup in my left elbow where it had to be drained, making sure that I did not feel any discomfort while draining it. He gave me a cortisone shot, Than he rapped my elbow with an ace bandage to make sure it was comfortable. while having a conversation, to make sure I was not in any discomfit. I would definitely advise family and friends that was having any issues with Rheumatologist to definitely call in make an appointment

DR. Saperia repaired my knee back in January of 2017 from injuries caused by a drunk driver. I truly cant thank him enough for his incredible surgical skill and kind bedside manner. Finding this exceptional care outside of Boston was a blessing. Consider yourself fortunate if you are lucky enough to fall under his care.

I am a teacher and I stand all day. When I learned I had a bone spur and a torn meniscus and a cartilage issue, Dr. Saperia was amazing. I was so worried. He let me know each step of the way what was happening. His PA Julianna and his office staff are outstanding and so welcoming.

Dr. Saperia worked on my knee in 2010 and most recently 5 months ago on my shoulder. He did an incredible job getting me back to where i was before the injuries. He really takes the time to go over everything and explain everything thoroughly. I cannot be more satisfied with how things turned out. In addition to his work, the physical therapy team he had me go to was awesome. They were very personable and walked me through every step of the recovery. I would recommend him and his team to anyone.
