I love Dr. Christoforou!! He is highly educated, and current with new procedures, and highly energetic! He truly loves what he does, and it shows! He has excellent bedside manner, in and out of the hospital. He is sympathetic and caring.He has done multiple injections in my arthritic hands, carpal tunnel release, dequervains tenosynovitis release. He is always very thorough, very explanatory, and genuinely listens to any any all concerns, no matter how big or small. I have recommended many of my friends and they have had similar experiences. Go to him! You will not be disappointed!

He performed surgery on my extensor tendon in my left ring finger after I'd sliced through it with a bandsaw, and did an incredible job. Also recommended me to a fantastic physical therapist (CJ Hand Therapy), and I was back to normal in about 2-3 months from surgery. He was also great with answering questions and explaining the procedure and limitations after surgery. Overall, an extraordinarily personable and skilled doctor.

I met Dr Christoforou for the first time after being brought to the emergency room 7/28/17. I had a very bad hand accident. A blender malfunctioned and came apart. The blade on the machine shredded my hand. Tendons and nerves were severed in multiple places. Dr. C. and his excellent team spent 6.5 hours rebuilding my hand. Before I went into surgery he looked at me and reassured me that I was going to be ok. I have seen the Dr. multiple times since the surgery. My hand has full function!

Dr. Christoforou is truly the best. He's taken care of my problematic wrist for over 2 years now and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else. He's kind, caring, extremely educated, and takes his time with you. I've never felt rushed or confused as he offers you the chance to ask questions, and makes sure you understand the answers. If you have problems with your hand or wrist, look no further because you won't find another Dr. like him. Thank you, Dr. Christoforou!
