none better, nor more personable. without a doubt, Dr. Cassidy is what Bird was on the parquet, only in the o.r. Brilliant surgeon and a car guy too boot. Fortunate for me we've spent about 27 plus yrs, intertwined. I break and he rebuilds it. Thanx for being my doctor, my friend, double C. Regarding the parameters below its unfortunate more stars aren't offered.

I was 19 at the time of my injurie. I was told by a Dr. previously that I would never be able to write again and my right thumb would be immobile. So I went for a second opinion from Dr. Cassidy, hearing about him from a friend. I had a fracture dislocate on my right thumb, the socket was shattered Dr. Cassidy performed surgery applied an external fixator and after it was removed and I went to PT it was extremely good shape. Today I can hardly tell anything ever happened. Thank you Dr. Cassidy!!

Most of my appointments were early. Friendly efficient staff at the office. Operation on my left arm was one of 65 and I felt like the only patient. Dr Cassidy even called me at home because he had another surgery right after mine and we didn't get to chat after. A good and happy ending to a bad problem. Thanks Dr Cassidy and staff.

I wish I knew of Dr Cassidy prior to having a carpal tunnel operation on my left hand a year ago. I continued to have problems and was referred to Dr Cassidy. He has been taking care of my hand for 6 months.He decided that cortisone injections were only a temporary fix. I like the way he will evaluate the problem and does not jump right into surgery until nothing else works. His right hand, Marcello, is very helpful in understanding your needs. I highly recommend him!!
