I had two visits scheduled with Dr. Napoli. The first one, on 11/8/16 went well. I was then scheduled for a followup appointment on 12/13/06. I arrived on time, was promptly greeted and an assistant lead me into the examining room. I remained in the in the examining room for 75 minutes. No one ever came in during that time. At the end of one hour and fifteen minutes I got up and left. I have never been contacted by anyone from the office since. Obviously, they do not care about their clients.

Dr. Napoli performed procedures for carpal tunnel on both wrists. Outstanding results with the procedure and the overall experience. Dr Napoli did the procedure at their new outpatient surgery center in Asheville. On the first wrist I left home at 6:30 am and got back at 10:30 am. This included an hour and half driving to and from the center. They did an outstanding job getting you in and out with overall outstanding results on fixing my wrist issues. Highly recommend this practice.

Facing the need for thumb arthroplasty on both sides, Dr. Napoli did the left about 10 mos. ago - it was a complete failure! I had the right side done (different Dr. found after proper research) 7 wks ago and am about 80% back to normal function already. Xrays of the thumb that Dr. Napoli did show that it is clearly 100% bone on bone and I have the pain to prove it, and apparently there is no guarantee it can even be fixed now that it has been botched. I'm so pissed! DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!!

I have already recommended Dr. Napoli to others. I appreciated his knowledge, patience, support, actually being there listening, humor.............. Thank you! Plus, success with both surgeries!

Dr. Napoli took the time to explain the problem and how it could be fixed and there was not any pressure for surgery from him. He gave me the information and allowed me to make the decision for the repair.

Dr. Napoli has an incredible bedside manner especially for a surgeon. He goes far and beyond to explain what diagnostically is wrong with you, answers your questions, and never pushes you into having surgery unless absolutely necessary. He treats you as a person and you are never felt rushed when you are with him. I have had three surgeries by him and am very pleased with him and his office staff.

I thought my first experience before the surgery was warm ,friendly, and all my questions were answered... and after the surgery I was treated with all the professionalism and care someone needs when still in pain. I would without a doubt recommend Dr. Napoli.
