Patient Comments (5)
Tucson, AZ |
Dr was mostly interested in scheduling a surgery instead of listening to the patient’s concerns. As soon as he heard an unwillingness to immediately schedule surgery he was literally walking out the door as the patient was still asking questions.

In mid 2014, I went in as a very active 53 year old, 17 mile a day biker and hospital nurse, to learn why I had developed intermittent excruciating pain. He diagnosed me with bilateral meniscal tears. Since Dr Petrow ruined my knees in September 2014, my pain never stops. I've been to several specialists who've said the arthroscopy should never have been done, but the only thing they can do is replace BOTH my knees because of advanced arthritis and bursitis. I warn everyone against Petrow.

I would recommend Dr. Petrow to any family member or friend who is contemplating hip replacement surgery. It is done anteriorly and recovery is so much faster and pain is so much less. Dr. Petrow is congenial and takes time to answer all questions.
in Casa Grande, AZ |
Dr. Petrow is one of those docs who REALLY LISTENS to his patients. He doesn't rush you out of the room, but keeps asking if you have any questions and explains the answers in lay terms. He repaired a torn meniscus for me last year and will perform a hip replacement and a knee replacement for me within the next few months. I have great respect for both him and Laura and complete confidence in the two of them.

Very knowledgeable and experienced in the anterior hip replacement approach. He did my hip surgery in 2012 and I am very pleased with how well it turned out.
