Not impressed at all. Kept getting asked "why are you here, who referred you?" I have seen 3 other doctors in this practice for other issues and never been treated this way. Would not recommend him and will not go back to him.

One of the worst doctors I've ever been to. If you don't know how to self-diagnose don't bother going to him.

Saw him back in August, he was very rude and misdiagnosed me. I have hip dysplasia, which he mentioned nothing about. Only going to another doctor, outside of Seaview, was I properly diagnosed. Also, he must have given PT the wrong orders, because they treated the hip that didn't hurt and never addressed my left knee issues. I found the whole process and this doctor (along with PT center) reaffirmed my thought that it's best to go into Manhattan when you want to be properly diagnosed.

I have never been treated so poorly by a physician. I share this review because I hope that no other patient is put in the uncomfortable position I was today or leaves the office feeling how I felt. Frederick's behaviors made it clear that my visit was a great inconvenience to him. I had to excuse myself from the appointment and leave before ever being treated.

The day I saw Dr. DePaola for the 4th knee injection was very traumatic, I waited in the exam room for a half hour, When doctor came in, I said, in a"cutsie" tone, "I thought you might have forgotten me". He proceeded to YELL at me saying"you don't know what personal problems I have!" "And if you don't like waiting, find another doctor". He then shouted at me,"I went for bloodwork last week and had to wait an hour". Again, he yelled"if you don't like waiting, get another doctor". I am not exaggerating when I say, he was yelling at me!

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.

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.

Amin in Kendall Park NJ – Mar 05, 2019
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
