Dr. Buttacavoli is an exceptional Doctor. He has a great bedside manner and is kind and compassionate. He was highly recommended by a friend and I would highly recommend him to anyone that requires help with their orthopedic needs. Hard to find a doctor like this in these times.

He was very thorough and explained my current injury, the best course of action and pros and cons of other options. He also looked my X-Ray's and evaluated other bones and joints. My knee was very swollen and causing me incredible pain. He gave me the option of having it drained and he completed the procedure almost painlessly. The result was incredible. Thank You Dr. Buttacavoli.
One of the best experiences with a physician. Very attentive to my needs and walked me through the various options for my procedure.
I am almost speechless, Dr. Buttacavoi is one of the nicest and well trained doctors I have ever met .
