      Two shoulders done by Dr. Yacobucci and I am back! This guy is not only a tremendous surgeon but he’s a heck of a nice guy too. One of the best bedside manners I’ve ever witnessed and I work in healthcare. I cannot leave out his team either...Matt is an incredible PA! Michelle is a great nurse and the rest of the scheduling team are superb. PT team is a great group as well. Really helped me recover quickly. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Yacobucci and his team at TOCA.

      Dr. Yacobucci is always no nonsense with his approach. Starts with least cost and complicated approaches first and solves my issues for both my knee and now shoulder. I would highly recommend him. X Rays were done on site and made immediately available. TOCA is a world Class establishment and they have their act together. I got in to see him in less tan a week which made me very happy.

      Dr Yacobucci repaired my left shoulder (this was a revision). I have 100% use of my shoulder now! He and his staff are wonderful! He is very personable and actually listens after he asks a question (I am used to Doctors not really listening).
