Patient Comments (2)
Edwardsville |
I was a patient of Dr. Petolillo's for years and he's great. He spends the required time to listen to issues & take necessary steps. He replaced my knee, & I've had an excellent result. Even though he's now in a group practice, as opposed to private practice, he still spends the necessary time with you. The biggest regret I have is that I was unable to schedule a final visit with him before I moved, because scheduling an appt. with him now takes weeks or months. Still.. I Highly recommend!
