Dr. Chiodo has a weird mean streak and a short fuse if you dare to ask him ANYTHING. His demeanor is so unprofessional and really kind of abusive that I felt like I was in the room with a bully. In addition, after seeing another Dr. it turns out he totally misdiagnosed me. I'm very concerned that a doctor this hostile and temperamental is Head of Foot and Ankle. He reflects badly on the Brigham.

For 9 months I was in excruciating pain, test after test nobody could seem to figure out what the problem was until my visit with Dr. Chiodo. I was referred to Dr. Chiodo for his specialty and at the first appointment, he knew exactly what the issue was...after PT to prep for surgery and then surgery, within 3 days after surgery, I was out of pain. Thank you, Dr. Chiodo

Arthritis in the big toe with a titanium implant ( not performed by Dr. Chiodo) was causing pain walking and precluded playing my only sport, golf. Dr. Chiodo recommended fusion of the phalange (toe end) to the metatarsal (foot end) basically eliminating the joint completely. This was a complicated surgery entailing not only bone fusion but also removing the titanium implant. After 6 months, I can walk again and play golf. Highly recommend Dr. Chiodo!

I ruptured my Achilles on the week of Thanksgiving. Even though it was just before the holiday, Dr. Chiodo made time to see me the same day that I called his office. He spent the time with me explaining my options, giving me all the information I needed to decide the course of action that suited me best. I've never felt rushed in his office, and he has offices in multiple locations which is convenient. I am very appreciative of the care Dr. Chiodo provided me. He is a very good man.

Dr. Chiodo always keeps you waiting then spends minimal time with you. He breezes in and out very quickly, without answering questions or even examining you(his PA does the hands on work) He is often condescending and rude. After my surgery he never came out to speak to my husband. Dr. Chiodo needs to work on his patient care skills, his enormous ego, and his nonexistent bedside manner.

He's a great, talented, surgeon. I had a hole in my talus bone and after meeting with two doctors, one a famous sports surgeon which wouldn't do ithe surgery because he couldn't guarantee success,; the other doctor lacked experience. During a follow up meeting 3 years later I recognized how Dr Chiodo is a really nice person and has a great philosophy about patient treatment. My surgery exceeded my expection. I can exercise some, which wasn't guaranteed and I don't have constant pain. Success!!!

I do not have such positive feedback back about my experience with Dr. Chiodo. I was a patient of his beginning in 2015. For pain in my left second digit toe, proceeding a bunyionectomy. Over the course of 1 year Doctor Chiodo was unable to diagnose a Plantar Plate Tear. This was after 2 MRI's, an xray, cortisone shot and multiple office visits. Sending me a away with " a complicated" foot diagnosis. A second opinion diagnosed my condition using same MRI and we proceeded to surgery.

I had a complete ankle replacement back in August of 2015. After years of suffering with pain and inflamation, I coul not be happier with the results and Dr. Chiodo's 100% dedication to my well being. Dr. Chiodo understood my inital reservations and put me at ease with his professionalism and plan for my complete care (pre and post surgery). I HIGHLY recommned Dr. Chiodo and his practice.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Chiodo for a number of years, I’ve always found him to be straight forward, willing to listen & prepare a course of treatment that doesn’t immediately include surgery. In the end I had no choice but to have major surgery & it was very successful. I appreciated his & his team’s knowledge, professionalism, kindness & empathy. They were very careful on pain reduction, very little wait time at appointments; it’s a very smooth process at each visit. I highly recommend Dr
