I had a shoulder replacement surgery with Dr Raffo five weeks ago, I am already driving and doing everything by myself, he was wonderful and caring, I had the best experience, the pain management was unbelievable, I never took one pain killer!! I would recommend him to my family and friends. E. M

Such a smart and knowledgable Doctor. Helped me with my knee and shoulder problem. I was impressed that he was not accepting of the radiology report of my MRI. Most of my doctors in the past would never go against the report but he was not convinced of his findings. Very up to date with newest info that comes out and just an overall good guy. Very nice bedside manor and makes you feel very comfortable. Spends a great deal of time explaining options, risks, etc.
