Absolutely amazing. He was my third opinion after two previous doctors gave me wildly different opinions regarding a knee issue. Took the time to explain my issues in laymen’s terms that I understood and came up with a course of action.

My son has been seeing Dr. Annunziata for sports and growth-related injuries for 7 years. He is fantastic and always gets it right. We went through several orthopedist with one injury before seeing Dr. Annunziata and he was the first to correctly identify the problem and fix it. My son has never had an issue with that ankle again. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Annunziata conducted a thorough and progressive assessment of my knee. After confirming the problem as a meniscus tear I decided to correct the problem with surgery. Dr. Annunziata his OR team did a great job from start to finish. He is an excellent surgeon.

Dr. Annunziata is everything you wish in a doctor when suffering debilitating shoulder pain and sleepless nights. Following recent shoulder replacement surgery, I have been able to regain my mobility and resume my previous lifestyle. In one word, Dr. Annunziata is extraordinary with an exceptional staff. He is also a good listener, comforting and caring, inspiring and encouraging, and has a good sense of humor.Thank you Dr. Annunziata.

Dr Annunziata was great! Good personality, explained things in a way a lay person could understand, made a quick diagnosis and discussed treatment options that made it easy to move forward. After months and months of pain, I'm now pain free and making real progress with PT. Thank you so much!

Dr Annuziata did a total shoulder replacement due to arthritis, bone-on-bone. I was not in constant pain, but felt it was better to have surgery done now (age 66) since my family lives into mid 80s/90s. His procedure included a nerve block which insured my first day or so was pain free, and greatly helped my recovery. After 4 months of twice weekly physical therapy, I recovered enough function to cancel physical therapy. He was willing, happy to repeat anything I didn't quite understand the first time, and answered any and all questions that I had.

I went to Dr. Annunziata for a surgical second opinion. He thoroughly explained his review of the MRI and his opinion on surgery. He took his time asking questions and answering mine. Extremely professional yet personable.

Dr Annunziata saw me promptly. He gave me a second opinion on my shoulder issue, explaining X-ray and MRI results. He advocated a conservative option which I am trying first. Good patient/ doctor exchange.

Highly skilled but also extremely personable and approachable. Impressive credentials—he works with professional athletes and dancers—but equally courteous and caring with “ordinary” patients.
