    I am so disappointed in Dr Leotta. I went to him with a very painful knee. I was given Supartz injections and felt somewhat better after the 2nd shot. But the 3rd shot made the pain unbearable. A plea for help got me a cortisone shot but my requests for an MRI resulted in his telling me "no" unless I agreed to surgery. When I said no to surgery he lost interest in me . And refused to see me when I went to his office. He had seemed so caring . PHONY!! Don't trust him!
    It's unfortunate that you feel this way. Given our lengthy discussions regarding your knee pain/pathology, the only treatment options would be weight loss, another round of supartz, or arthroscopic surgery which does not have a good track record with your level of arthritis. Given your adamant refusal to consider surgery an MRI would serve no purpose. Understand I will always do what is in your best medical and financial interest regardless of your understanding.

    Stay far away from this guy!!!
    This comment was posted by a community orthopedic surgeon who is not board certified and whom I've performed revisions on over 20 of his prior patients. I encourage anyone who has actual issues with their doctor to ask them directly or at least not hide behind the anonymity of a post such as this.

    Great beside manner, follows up with his patients, truly takes time making sure you understand anything and everything from start to finish! Couldn't have found a better doctor for my 15 year old daughter!
