Patient Comments (2)
"I don't know what's wrong with you, come back in six months" - exact words spoken from Dr Prietto himself. This man performed surgery on my knee and kept trying to avoid blame for the pain I was experiencing post-surgery and couldn't determine the root cause of the pain despite multiple office visits. Each office visit felt like a complete waste of time and I came out of each one feeling more frustrated.
