I've had 2 surgeries to my hand due to severing my tendon accidentally. I was seen quickly and recovered as well as can be expected for the injury. I definitely recommend his service.

My experience with Dr. Petrullio was very positive. On time, showed me my x-rays, ct scans with a thorough explanation of my condition. He was empathetic, and showed a genuine concern for me and my condition. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
