I had shoulder surgery with Dr D. As a former college athlete I was nervous about being able to continue playing after college pain free. From the beginning he treated me as if I was a professional athlete.

Dr. D'Alessandro took time to explain things in easy to understand language. He performed my surgery flawlessly and followed my recovery closely. I feel like he really card about me and the progress I was making towards normalcy. He is kind and patient and never seemed rushed.
