What People Say About Dr. Brett Cascio, MD

WOW! My 14 y/o daughter had a large labral tear and had arthroscopic hip surgery performed by Dr. Cascio. She went through all the treatment options prior to having surgery. She is now 3 1/2 months post surgery. She has done everything that Dr. Cascio and his staff instructed her to do, including physical therapy. She has done great and is pain free. Shout out to Dr. Cascio and Mr. Leon for always taking time and giving clear explanations. Thank you for making this experience a good one!

He is very thorough & quite personable. Had total shoulder replacement. Have had very little pain and then only after starting therapy. Have done exceptionally well with great range of motion. My only complaint is not seeing him after surgery, which is the new trend in medicine, not just In his office. Pleased with seeing his nurse who has about 40 years in orthopedics so is very knowledgeable & thorough with explanations. In a quandry as to why his overall rating is not a 5

I saw Dr. Cascio for a partial tear in my rotator cuff. I liked that he recommended other options before surgery. I received an Amniofix injection and have had positive results so far. I am very pleased with my care. The only complaint I have is the long wait in the waiting room.

I was having shoulder pain for 3 years, and I finally got to see Dr Cascio. He is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He said it wasn’t my shoulder and wanted a MRI of my neck. Guest what he was right. My shoulder pain was from 3 bulging disk, and the pain was radiating to my shoulder. He is the best. I saw 3 other doctors that couldn’t figure that out! Thank you Bossman !!

Dr. Cascio told my son that he had a torn labrum. He wanted to do surgery. We then got 2 more opinions, one from the Fondren group in Houston. They said his labrum wasn't torn and that he didn't need surgery. I would not recommend Dr. Cascio.

Too fast pace. Does not spend enough time with patients. Staff does not even look up to see your face. Its like in and out. Impossible to get someone on the phone or to return phone calls. Took over 3 week to get a referral. This office needs to concentrate more on patients needs than on how many they can see in a day.

Went to Dr. Cassio for hip problems. Told me I had a tear in my labrum. After surgery I still was not better and he told me there was nothing wrong with me. I went to New Orleans to another doctor to find out I had another laberal tear and he did not fixed what had caused my hip to tear in the first place.

I would NOT recommend Dr Cascio! I just had a rotator cuff repair and still in severe pain 18 weeks post-op, only to follow up with him and be told I NOW need a TOTAL shoulder replacement!! He apparently does NOT know what he is doing!
