Brick, NJ |
Best surgeon I've ever met. His bedside manner was unlike I've ever witnessed from many surgeons and I feel so much better from his hip replacement
Glen Mills, PA |
It's been 5 years now since my double knee replacement. I had no nunbness on the bottoms of my feet when i entered Crozer-Chester hospital, Upland, PA for my double knee replacement. I felt numbness on the bottoms of both feet after awaking from the operation; the numbness has continued 24/7 for over 5 years. The foot numbness has caused balance issues and of course discomfort. Dr. Giammattei continues to disavow any blame, has no interest in seeking possible causes or treatment.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Frank P. Giammattei, MD and his staff to my friends and family. The staff is courteous and friendly and very professional. The doctor is thorough on everything that he does. The front office staff gets documents filled out and faxed to the proper places in an efficient and timely manner. They are also very courteous and professional.

Amazing!!!!!! I had the best experience with him. After seeing other Orthopedic surgeons he was the only one who was able to give me a diagnosis. Gave the best less evasive treatment and told me to come back as needed. Did not make me dependent on doctor visits, which is what I like. I would recommend him all the way.
