Nothing but great things to say about Dr Petolillo. Scheduled surgery for Oct 2018, relief was immediate. Life changing surgery. Could barely walk before surgery. Pain after surgery was comparable to a papercut. Staff is so incredible and helpful. If you are suffering through hip pain like I was. Schedule an appt. you wont be sorry. He gave me my life back

Great surgeon but way too busy. I had to wait from November 28th when I was told by one of the orthopedic doctors that I should see the surgeon as he felt I needed hip replacement. He tried to get me in the following week but it took three wks for an appt. by which time I was already in so much pain. At that appt Dr. Petolillo scheduled me for hip replacement surgery for 2/14/18. That was his first opening. By surgery time I couldn’t even walk. His surgery on me great and recovery going good

Dr. Petolillo and his staff are very polite, and helpful. I had a hip replacement in Jan 2018, I was so nervous about the surgery. Dr. P helped ease my fear, answered every question. My surgery was a major succes! I was walking without the use of a cane/walker at week 3 and climbing stairs no problem! I have no pain and wished I had this surgery 2 yrs ago! Dr. P is the absolute best! I have referred family to him.

I've had Dr. Petolillo as my doctor fir many years. He's a very good doctor. Always listening to my ailments and then giving me a direct and thorough plan of action. I've had him perform my hip replacement. Not a single problem and I'm almost a year out. I'd suggest him to anyone. His attitude is excellent, he listens and asks questions then tells you what the plan is.

This dr examined me for less than 10 minutes! He was able to determine that I should go back to work. I have constant pain due to injury that happened at work! It’s a racket that he gets paid $$$ from workers comp to say what they want. It’s sad that he has no compassion or integrity.

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!
