Patient Comments (16)

Dr Liotta is wonderful and spends the time explaining what needs to be done in order to get back to work. The hospital where he works is not so good. I hope I don’t injure my shoulder again, for a bunch of reasons, but if I do, I am not sure I would return to Valley View Hospital.

Tito helped me get back on my road bike again and I am so grateful for everything he did for me. I hope that I don’t have to go to that office or hospital again and can’t believe he puts up with it. He’s a better dr than his partners and can’t waot for him to move on!!

Dr. Liotta is caring and listened to me when I explained my pain and what was working and what wasn't working. He knows so much about the shoulder and how to get rid of my pain. I apprecitate everything he has down to get my back on the golf course!!

Tito wanted me to get back to biking again. He gave me his cell phone number and his email and checked in with me during my recovery... who else does that? I am now his biggest fan and appreciate everything that he and my PT did for me these past few months.
