Brewster, NY |
Dr Lombardo did two total knee replacements for, me a complete hip for my 82 yr old mother in law and one month later total hip for my wife.Mom uses a cane on some days my wife is back to work on her feet after 4 weeks.Dr lombardo has a great team of pt people in fishkill. We all could not be in better hands.

Worst MD I have ever encountered, from someone aspiring to go into the medical profession. Misdiagnosed me multiple times & told me my pain was psychosomatic. However I am thankful because I need surgery & would never allow Lombardo to operate. He may consider hips his speciality but so are knees, ankles, shoulders, & wrists...meaning he will operate on anything-even if he knows he isn't the most qualified MD.

Had my hip replaced October of 2016. I have had no problems and the recovery time was minimal. Doing everything I want to, golf, snowmobiling, atv riding, bowling. AS for Vassar Brothers Hospital they were horrible once I was in my room.
in local, ny |
Not awake, entered emergency room with serious leg injury. If I knew what I now know Lombardo would not be allowed to touch me. Later told I was left in emergency for 24 hours before he did surgery. Then, I was taken to a patient room. Eventually woke up, stayed Tuesday thru Friday attended by 2 nasty insensitive nurses. At post op with him, my friend & my qualified CNA his first words “surgery failed, won’t do again, use wheelchair, blamed me for his failure". I'd only use Alliance if DOA.
Kingston, NY |
He gave me partial knee replacement that didn't work for me. Now I'm facing to have total replacement. I got so much pain that I've never had before surgery. He is a manipulative liar who doesn't care about patient. He lied everything on his report for his convenience. Stay away from Lombardo.
in Highland, NY |
He performed a replacement of a 25 yer old hip replacement for me. He said I would be in the hospital 3 days plus a week in recovery home. He ended up doing a partial replacement ( the cup and ball) and a patch of the lower bone. I was in hospital 6 days, almost 3 weeks in recovery, in a wheel chair for 2 mos. ,crutches for an addit. month. when I asked him why? he had a red face and said oh! if this doesn't work we can do another surgery. I was out of commission for 3 months.
in Warwick, NY |
Good and to the point Dr. Friendly and I would recommend as he is forthright and I found him to be very personable. No stress and he put me at ease
in Kingston, NY |
After months of unsuccessful treatments to stop my knee from hurting, he told me I needed a knee replacement. I went to a different orthopedic doctor in Albany who immediately did an MRI and saw a torn meniscus. He scheduled surgery and repaired the tear. I have been fine ever sense. This was about six years ago. Doctor Lombardo refused to do an MRI. He said the insurance company wouldn't like it.
in Poughkeepsie, NY |
Straight forward (but not to the point of being blunt). Cordial, knowledgeable.
Kingston, NY |
I have an eight minute recording of him sitting across from me stating he does not do anything but hip surgical procedures, and misstated the piriformis goes from the sacrum to the ishium, when I corrected him stating it goes to the trochanter, which he adamantly denied. He added to my medical record an entire hands on exam which he didn't do, as he sat there in a chair the entire time, was rude He refused me an MRIw/dye, for a torn hip hip labrum. He couldn't find what the radiologist dx.MCB
in Poughkeepsie, NY |
I have had the great pleasure of being one of his patients!! He did such a great job on my elbow that I can't thank him enough! I just broke my right elbow this time and I was so very sad that I did not have the opportunity to have him again as my doctor!
