Bethlehem, PA |
Don't trust him. He messed my mom arm up badly. He put the screws up straight in her are not even fixing it then had to do a reconstructed surgery then messed that up which another doctor said that didn't even need to be done she had to go somewhere else for another survey to fix what he did. He is on medical leave thank god said to my mom oh you had that before I did your surgery you will just haft to deal with it

8 months ago had torn meniscus surgery have been in pain ever since got second opinion going for total knee replacement next week...run from this surgeon !!!
in Bethlehem, PA |
Poor listener. Walks in the room with a preconceived idea of a diagnosis. Sent me for an MRI to rule out a meniscus tear without any examination. When the results came back and were negative for a tear, he totally dismiss me without any other alternative. Insisted pain is arthritis even after I tried to explain that the pain was not on a joint, persistent 24/7 and not relieved by Ibuprofen, steroids, ice or heat therapy. Condescending is the best way to describe this character.

Handled my knee pain without surgery. Can't thank Dr. Federico enough. Highly recommend!!!!
in Coopersburg, PA |
He was able to see me in a short notice and scheduled emergency surgery for my leg. I see him again in a week and 1/2, and we'll go from there. So far so good.

Wish I could leave zero star
Mount Laurel, NJ |
Is more interested in getting you to fill out the patient satisfaction survey than actually seeing the patient. Lousy bedside manner. Does not address patient concerns. Spends very little time with each patient. There's a reason he has a low rating.
New York, NY |
Two minutes for a first appt. Horrible DR
