My mom is 105. She cannot wait for long periods of time in a waiting room. We were in and out quickly. Mom loves Dr Spagnuola. He also operated on my son when he severely injured his knee. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thank Dr. Spagnuola!

My recent shoulder surgery with Dr Spagnuola of Seaview Orthopedics was so much better than I expected. I was so apprehensive about having shoulder surgery to begin with but from the very first visit at Seaview Orthopedics I knew I was in the best hands around. The surgical assistants pre-surgery were absolutely wonderful and helped ease all of my anxiety and were there for me right after with the best bedside manner. I chose Dr Spagnuola out of three other surgeons because he is a shoulder specialist, but more importantly, he was kind and gentle and thorough in his explanation of the problem and the resolution. I would highly recommend Seaview Orthopedics for anyone who is in need of Orthopedic care.

We have been coming to Dr. Spagnuola for a few years with both our children. He is thorough, knowledgeable, kind and funny. He has guided us through a few sports related injuries and has gone out of his way to assist and guide us. The entire practice is kind, thorough and efficient.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Spagnuola’s for 3 years. Thanks to a flawless hip surgery, I’ve returned to Marathon Running. He is patient, knowledgeable, informative and thorough. I am very grateful for everything he has done for me! Tracey M. (Shrewsbury, NJ)

Its taken me two years to write this, this doctor told me I was lying and falsifying two mris regarding a slipping platella and torn mesicus. My knee constantly locks into place I’m in constant pain and he told me “women constantly complain just deal with it” “there’s no way you have a torn meniscus prove it to me with your old MRIS(which I did)” and berated me to the point of tears in my car. It’s been years and I was so embarrassed about consulting my condition it has progressed. AVOID thanks
