Dr. DePaolo replaced my hip on January 23rd 2020. I chose him because he performed the Anterior procedure & from my research and someone I know who had it done this way I knew this is what I wanted. The operation took less than 2 hrs. I honestly don't know why there are a fèw negative comments on this site regarding this Surgeon because I found him very professional..he always listened to me & answered all my questions. The first 2 weeks were uncomfortable while healing and the in home Physical therapy was painful but now 6 weeks later I'm great...driving and doing everything I did before! I highly recommend Dr. DePaolo!

I feel he was a very thoughtful and caring dr who did a very thorough exam and listened to me. I would highly recommend him and feel he is a very good dr. He went out of his way to get to the bottom of my complaint and figure out a plan of action that would work for me.

Awful. A very rude man that makes you feel like you are a bother to him. Agree with the others...he doesn’t let you speak. Would not recommend him AT ALL.

Hip replacement, my first major surgery at age 72. Doctor DePaola kept me calm, cool and collected. Recovery and physical therapy had me up and about in no time. Celebrating my two year anniversary since operation. Still going strong.

Very rude and doesn't give the patient a chance to speak. I am a nurse so I tried explaining my symptoms using anatomical terms, and he told me that he didn't understand and wanted me to dumb it down for him after interrupting me several of times. It seems like he wants patients in and out, factory style.

I saw Doctor Dr Paola for a follow up to a broken and sprained ankle today. Grade 3 ligament tears, Broken heel, etc. I’ve been in a boot for 4 weeks. Happy to say the appt went well. He was very satisfied with the new xrays, and I’m coming out out my boot, into a brace and on to physical therapy. Couldn’t be happier with the time he spent, the explanations, and overall treatment and care, and the patient answers to repeated questions :) Excellent doctor/ great practice! So happy with my results

He treated my 87 y/o grandmother horribly. I am SO upset by how he treated her. No bedside manner at all. Didn't even greet her or introduce himself. Then told her she needed a hip replacement and there was nothing else he could do for her. When she told him at her age she did not want to have surgery and asked if she could receive any shots to help alleviate the pain he told her, "I don't do shots." I would not even give him 1 star if I had the option.

Dr. DePaola is a very caring, smart physician. I like his honesty. He is very thorough, and I always feel confident in his decisions regarding my care. He always discusses all the pros and cons of treatment. He has done 2 surgeries on me, and he has been my Dr. Since 2010. I highly recommend him. You do wait a bit in his office to see him but that is because he is so popular. Seaview Orthopaedics is a very pleasant place. It is very busy, but everyone you come into contact with is efficient.
