Dr. Privitera saved me from a life of inactivity. As a 61 year old female with a complex set of torn menisci, Dr. P was determined to save as much as my radial and lateral menisci as possible. He warned me that it would be a difficult 1 yr. recovery. HIs support was unwavering. I've used many doctors in my life, and there isn't one who achieves the standard of expertise and patient care that Dr. David Privitera does. Seek him out, and tell him I said hello from Valencia, Spain!!

Dr. Privitera is outstanding. After 3 years of constant hip pain, I am now back to a completely normal life. I followed all of his instructions after surgery, went for my regularly scheduled visits, and completed my PT per his instructions. One year later, I am pain free. He always welcomed my questions with easily understood explanations and never made me feel rushed. Because of this, he does run behind at times. However, he is easy to talk to, professional, thorough, and caring.

Dr. Privitera is outstanding. I broke 3 bones in my ankle and dislocated it.... the surgery was difficult and took twice as long due to crushed bone from the trauma. Dr. P was meticulous and the most caring doctor I’ve ever had. He was always extremely friendly, compassionate and patient....spent all of the time necessary to address my concerns or questions and never seemed rushed. The injury and recovery was difficult and overwhelming, and Dr P was the silver lining. He is a class act.
