Prior to my surgery, I had confidence in Dr. Giammattei's skills as an excellent orthopaedic surgeon, and he did not disappoint. I would gladly recommend him any day.

Dr. Giammettei did an excellent job all around. He communicated well and explained everything before the surgery. He did a great job with the surgery and I'm back to full mobility with no pain at all. Absolutely would recommend

I had both knees replaced by Dr. Giammattei one in 2012 and 2014 and am getting my right hip replaced in September 2018. He is an outstanding Dr. and I am highly satisfied with his skill and easy going personality. In short he is great.

I was in misery for years with stabbing knee pain, and my Mom and friend recommended Dr. G when I finally decided on surgery. I'm SO GLAD I chose him! Everything from my initial office visit with him when he explained everything, to the day of surgery and my one night post-op in the hospital was excellent. Everyone was concerned with my well-being and comfort, and my care was superb. I'm now two months post-op and the new knee is PAIN FREE! Why did I wait so long?

Dr Giammattei did a superb job on my full knee replacement. The medical care I received pre-op, during surgical procedures and post op care was nothing short of superb. His expertise sustained a great surgical procedure and surgical results. I am grateful to have had such a committed, competent surgeon perform my surgery. Many thanks to Dr Giammattei for his committment and expertise.

I have not gone very far in my treatment yet so it might be good to revisit this review at a later time. However, I was disappointed in having to get an X-ray even before seeing the doctor. Had it been the other way around, he would have known I didn't need the x-ray but instead an MRI. With that. said Dr. G was very nice. Once it was clear I needed the MRI, I got one.

He replaced both my hips on separate occasions. He is skilled, takes time to explain and listen. I am truly grateful for the excellent care. Both surgeries were at Springfield Hospital that has a separate area of the hospital for joint replacements so that you are away from sickness. I walk without a cane and no longer have any instability. I have my life back! Truly grateful.

Dr G has been my doctor for about 15 years. He spends time with me and answers my question. My left knee is on the back nine but so am I. If replacement is required down the line, he will be doing it at Crozer. He gives common sense responses and has a sense of humor. The only sad part is he will be done practicing before I "go".
