I have been going to Dr. Raffo since 2006. He has performed arthroscopic surgery on my left knee and is now taking care of my right knee, although surgery is not needed yet. He is always friendly and listens and takes time with me. He is a top quality surgeon and a fabulous practitioner. I would highly recommend him.

I have never had a problem getting an appointment. Once in the office, rarely do you wait any period of time. The practice has very good PAs and other staff. Dr. Raffo tried non-invasive procedures first before ordering MRI. He eventually performed surgery that went smoothly and repaired a problem. In addition, the staff at the surgery center were great!!

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.
