Dr. Scalone is by far the BEST doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is very thorough and approachable. He has a genuine desire to help his patients and it shows. I never felt nervous or apprehensive about my shoulder surgery which went very smoothly.

Couldn't get through to make an appointment, always got the answering service, was referred by my pcp to see. Never a callback to schedule an appointment.
