Hoboken, NJ |
Dr. Liporace is a great doctor and good man. I went to a lot of other surgeons about my achilles who all said the same thing. Dr. Liporace took the time to listen and try to do what's best for me as a person and an active man who still has a little "gas in the tank." He genuinely cared about getting me back to living life the way I was used to. His office was nice and his PA Jamie went out of her way to help me feel comfortable through out the entire procedure. I was lucky to find him.

Great doctor and great staff!
in Nutley, NJ |
I saw 3 other doctors prior to seeing Dr. Liporace. He was the only surgeon that would help me. After the surgery, I walked for the first time in 3 years. My experience was wonderful and the staff listened to my concerns and helped me every step of the way.

I wish I did my knee replacement surgery sooner. I received great care and had a wonderful experience. Dr. Liporace and his staff are caring and knowledgeable. I am so happy I made the decision to have surgery.
in Hackensack, NJ |
Excellent surgeon and great staff. He helped me when other doctors turned me away.
Jersey City, NJ |
My experience with Dr. Liporace was the worst I ever had at a doctor in my entire life. Here are some highlights of what was went wrong: -Extremely rude staff gave me a follow up number that went straight to a full voicemail with too many messages in the inbox. -Waiting room crammed with multiple patients complaining of 2 hour + waits from appointment time, myself included. -Dr. Liporace pushed aggressively for surgery even though 2nd and 3rd opinion felt PT was all I needed for myinjury

You should not under any circumstances use this doctor or this practice. Everyone I know that had surgery with him has MASSIVE complications AND I saw with my own eyes, bedbugs in the chair (the tall one for hip surgery patients) and when I reported it, his staff LAUGHED and said everyplace in New York has bed bugs Seriously stay away.
in Long Island City, NY |
The office staff is just atrocious. Really essentially negligent with their lack of care. His PA told me I just had a superficial cellulitis and it turned out to be the joint itself was infected. If I hadn't gone to the ER (against her advice) I don't even know what would have happened. They don't return phone calls, they don't schedule surgery when they say they are going to. This place is just grossly mismanaged and the disdain for patients as individuals is just palpable.
in Monroe, NJ |
He is knowledgable and personable. You are treated with respect and concern. He takes time to actually speak to his patients, not simply talk at them. More doctors should take lessons from him on how to care for their patients.
The office staff was rude and mismanaged. The waiting room was overcrowded and I left after 2 hours. Ridiculous.
