Dr. Dennison did a great job with ORIF I had one year ago. He got me right in for the surgery I needed with great results. I highly recommend him!

He is the most arrogant Doctor I have ever met. He has no sympathy for your problem or condition and very little for pain. He is abrasive and gives the feeling that you are nothing more than a "bother" to him. You get the feeling that he can't wait to leave. He shows obvious irritation if you ask him more than a couple of questions. Maybe he lacks confidence in his orthopedic knowledge and surgical abilities. Nothing like the many orthopedic doctors I have been to in Boston and New York.

Dr. Dennison is one poor excuse for a doctor- pompous, arrogant, nasty. He has a terrible terrible attitude on self importance. No patient should have to put up with this guy.

Saw Dr Dennison for frozen shoulder. He was annoyed when I wanted to speak with him versus his NP or Pa. Office person who handled mri's was down right mean when I needed mri done out of town due to work commuting.

Assistant gave me an expensive piece of equipment that my insurance company pays for. Time with the Doctor? Shortest time spent with patient ever. "Live with it", he said. You can go to Syracuse for surgery if you want. I might as well have consulted my hairdresser.

Dr Dennison is a true professional. He explained my problem to me and what my options were. I then made an informed decision. A classy touch is that he took extra care in protecting my tattoo. Thank you Dr Dennison.

Dr. Denison did my moms hip surgery. It was very nice to have a caring Doctor with good bedside manners. I seem it's very hard to find a doctor like that these days. He made my mom very comfortable with his care and compassion he showed. His office nurse Michelle is also wonderful. She returned my calls every time. She made sure my mom had her pain meds when she needed them and is a very caring person. She helped me by just being compassionate and having kind words. I highly recommend them
