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.

I was very empressed with Dr. D and the entire staff. Everyone was very courteous, prompt, and helpful. Dr. D is an excellent, skilled surgeon who takes time to explain your injury and what your surgery and rehabilitation entails. They are always on time with your appointment. Nurse is always prompt in returning phone calls. I? would highly recommend Dr. D to family and friends!!!

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.

A week after I had made the appointment with Dr. D'Alessandro, and had filled out the online questionnaires, a scheduler called to say that the doctor could not see me because he limited his practice to people under age 60. I am okay with this since he has a sports medicine specialty, but it would have been better to have known this when trying to select a doctor and make an appointment.

Dr D'Alessandro repaired my right labrum, rotator cuff, a bicep tenodesis, and bone spur exactly one year to date. My shoulder is practically brand new at 47. No issues throughout rehab and recovery. DR. D was professional, personable and explained everything throughout the process. His staff of PA's were top notch as well. Highly recommend.
