Patient Comments (3)
I have never had such a strange/negative experience dealing with a physician’s office. I called Dr. D's office because he came highly recommended. From the moment Dr. D's receptionist, Betty Bertrand, answered my call, her tone was adversarial and passive aggressive. She seemed to delight in making things difficult for potential patients. Dr. D also did not have the courtesy to return the call from my doc/relative. Betty & Dr. D, have lost sight of what their mission should be – helping people.
I was experiencing the same foot problems many people have ( plantar fasciitis) but mine just wasn't healing so I was recommended to see Dr. Dipreta. He walked into the room never made eye contact with me or introduced himself he just said, "what's wrong". Sent me for X-rays then explained what he could in a very unfriendly manner. His personality sucks. I don't care if he's a good dr. or not I wouldn't recommend him to any one. A patient shouldn't have to feel uncomfortable like he made me.

I've been seeing Dr. DiPreta for over ten years for treatment of post-traumatic ankle osteoarthritis that developed as a result of a serious injury and malunion that occurred during the original fracture fixation performed by another surgeon. My injury was pretty traumatic, in more than one way, and Dr. DiPreta has provided me with both the surgical expertise and moral support I've needed to keep going forward. He's the best!
