Dr. Gazzaniga is highly skilled, very kind, and incredibly trustworthy. He is on the less talkative side so you need to have your questions ready. He gives you the necessary information-- just very succinctly. My ACL surgery recovery was very speedy, I believe, because of the skill of Dr. Gazzaniga.

I'm on the border about Dr. Gazzaniga. I had broke a bone and was referred here and he was the first doctor that could get me in. He was very kind, but he skimmed over my xrays taken in the office and didn't see a fracture. After looking at the xrays my General doctor had taken, THEN he confirmed the break! Then told me it would have to heal on it's own and nothing needed to be done. 4 weeks later, I don't think it's healing, but getting worse.

I went to him because I was still having lots of pain and limited movement in my left arm and shoulder after months of physical therapy. I had seen a more local Orthopedist, and had an MRI and a steroid injection.Dr. Gazzaniga came highly recommend by another physician. Almost immediately started to ball me out for coming. (As if a long drive and co payments weren't enough). He kept checking his phone during my visit and left the room without explanation.
