Excellent physician. Dr Pollifrone has been my ortho surgeon for over 15 years, having performed knee surgeries and carpal tunnel surgery. He is patient and always takes whatever time is needed to answer my questions in an understandable fashion. Any time I am speaking with someone about an orthopedic issue, I always recommend Dr. P. He is obviously very knowledgeable in his specialty and as a plus he is always smiling and makes the visit almost enjoyable.

I have been going to Dr Pollifrone for about 6yrs and he’s always very professional, friendly, and makes sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. I knew 6yrs ago that some day I would eventually need a hip replacement because of a bone spur. He has never been pushy, but this year he did say I now have 2 bone spurs in my hip & he said he’s going to give me the keys to the bus & let me drive & when I’m ready, we can schedule the surgery. Well needless to say I’ll probably have the surgery this fall. Dr Pollifrone is an awesome doctor & would recommend to anyone who asked about a Ortho specialist that they see Dr Pollifrone
