    Dr. Ben Salpietro is amazing and his office staff are excellent. I have been having injections in the knee an will need a knee replacement. I recommend him to anyone - he and his office are the best!!

    Dr. Salpietro was WONDERFUL and is a GREAT doctor!!!!! His staff needs more education on workmans comp issues and Gail (workmans comp lady) needs more help because EVERYTHING was so screwed up as far as paperwork for my surgery...immediately after my knee scope I had to be on the phone with Dr. Salpietro's office because they screwed up the prescriptions for the pain meds I was to get after surgery...I should have been the one getting paid because I was on the phone so much!!!!! RIDICULOUS!!

    I have to agree with all these comments; Dr. Salpietro is a fine doctor and a caring man. His staff, however, can be rude and non-responsive, not to mention slow to respond to getting info back to patients (like 2 weeks for MRI results?). I have complete confidence in him as a dr.

    Dr. Ben was great, he is super friendly and professional and really knows what he is doing. I recently had my second knee scope with him and I was able to get up and walk out once I woke up from the anesthesia. The only problem is the office staff- they are so unfriendly, not helpful, and do not make things easy. They were extremely rude as I was trying to schedule my operation and even worse as I was trying to schedule my follow-up appointment. Dr. Ben is a 10/10 in every way, but his staff 0.

    Dr. Salpietro did a perfect surgery on my fiancé's broken shoulder! He took great care in making sure the plate and screws were perfectly placed to minimize any discomfort after healing. Dr. Salpietro was able make the incision near the inside of her arm and used internal stitches to create less noticeable scar. Top notch service!!!

    Dr Ben replaced my knee on 3-30-15 and then seven weeks later replaced my other knee. It is almost a year now and I am currently doing things I could only dreamed of. I thank God that Ben came into my life. I can't wait for summer and golf to start. Thanks Dr Ben Gary Jackson

    Dr.Salpietro has been a God send! Wait time is 10-15 minutes. He has done a scope on my left knee and I'm starting to feel better. He's very laid back, but professional at the same time. He takes the time to get to know you and he's one of the rare Doctors that asks what works for pain and actually writes you for that! Dr.Ben has been my saving grace!! HIGHLY recommended!!

    I've been with him 20 years as a mailman he's done my shoulders my knee twice 10 years apart and now I'm trying to get him to do my back and I don't know if he does backbut if he did I would have them do it wonderful doctor and personality
