Dr Zafonte was personable, friendly and professional. I felt he knew my history and medical issue before he walked into the room. His diagnosis and treatment plan were spot on. I would definitely see him again if the occasion arises. Also, his staff, from the front desk to the RN's and PA's were courteous, attentive and friendly.

Dr Zafonte treated me for a right elbow bursitis after a bad fall. I saw Dr Zafonte twice over a two months from August to early November of 2019. The first visit was a diagnosis that the bursitis would take up to three months to heal completely. The treatment was to use a hot pad three times a day. That worked perfectly and Dr Zafonte said I was cured. I would not hesitate to call on him again if needed. Dan Bantz

Dr. Zafonte and his staff are very caring and explained everything to me in language I understood. While he was doing surgery on my hand, he kept me informed as to what and how it was going. Follow=up care was very good and thorough. I will definitely go back to him if I ever need that type of care again. I highly recommend him for any orthopedic problem.

Just got the stitches out of my thumb this week, and thumb is doing great. Surgery was done under local anesthetic, and I was able to drive myself home which I very much appreciate. Dr. Zyfonte is capable and caring in addition to being pleasant to work with. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Zafonte treated my 2 year old son after he broke his leg. He and his entire staff were so patient with us and explained everything. Definitely gave us peace of mind with his professionalism and knowledge. We were also able to get in right away to see him.

I had fallen off a ladder at home and broke my wrist and fractured some bones in my right arm. Dr. Zaponte was recommended to me, by some of the emergency room personnel. At the initial visit, he went over the x-rays, and explained to me my different options, and why he thought surgery and inserting a titanium plate and pins was the best route to take . The surgery had me a little worried, since I had never been completely under. They had to cut in on both sides of my arm to correct it, but the scarring is absolute minimal - you can barely even see it . But most importantly, I have full function of my right arm and hand back! He is very skilled surgeon and does excellent work! His staff, and the physical therapists were also very professional and considerate. I would highly recommend him for anybody that needs hand surgery done!

I was very happy with It’s Dr. Zafonte. He did excellent surgery on my humerus and I have full ROM again. He always took his time in answering my concerns and never just rushed in and out. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with orthopedic problems.
