Patient Comments (5)

After being referred in circles with other specialists for my musculoskeletal issues, my final visit was a dramatic dismissal of his office. He ended up being divisive, unhelpful and unwilling to listen or understand my issues.

I saw Dr Giacchetto last year for rotator cuff repair. He is an amazing doctor. The surgery went flawlessly and my arm is healed. Unfortunately I just tore the other arm and would not see anyone but him again. Great doctor
