Care Philosophy

As a child I loved giving presents. It gave me great pleasure to select a gift and then present it to the recipient and watch their face as they opened the present. Now I get to do the same thing for my patients. Removing patient's pain and giving them greater mobility in life is the best gift I could ever give anyone. I am so pleased I have been able to spend my life helping others and I look forward to helping you.Read more

On August 28, 2015, Dr. DeOrio performed an ankle replacement on my left foot. After my first appointment, I felt very confident in him. He and his staff were friendly, efficient, competent, and caring. He explained everything in a way that my wife and I could understand. After a thorough examination, he informed me that he didn't think there would be a problem performing my surgery. The surgery went perfectly. I was never in any pain. I could not have gotten better care.
