Patient Comments (1)
in Syracuse, NY |
I would never recommend Mike Vella for any type of orthopedic procedure. His OR technique is below average which resulted in a painful outcome. A pre op medication order was written as a mistake and he would not take responsibility for this or the nurse. Actually he would not take responsibility on any level after he realized he screwed up. I would not recommend St. Joe's hospital or SOS - especially Mike Vella. I encourage people to leave the practice.
