Patient Comments (3)
in Alexandria, VA |
Dr. Scanelli is wonderful in every possible way. First, and most important, he is totally up-to-date on all the latest research and procedures. Second, he thinks about the well-being of his patients, checking in frequently in the hospital. Third, he communicates straightforwardly and courteously. He answers questions with as much detail as you wish and never fudges his answers. The hospital staff (I was at GW) clearly have a lot of respect, even affection, for him and that's good for you.

He is an amazing doctor with a fresh outlook on modern medicine. I had a hip replacement done by him and it was outpatient surgery thanks to his oversight and caring. I was up the steps and home that night. His whole technique is focused on the patient and pain management. I am planning to take my 75 year old mother to him to replace a knee, and that means flying her here to have the procedure. You know I am passionate about his care if I will bring my mother.
in Silver Spring, MD |
He patiently answered all questions and explained the new anterior surgical procedure. I felt comfortable and reassured that my procedure and recovery would be successful and without discomfort. I had a total right hip replacement that was pain free, due to careful dosages and scheduling of pain meds. About six weeks after surgery and home physical therapy treatments, I am able to resume my normal activities. I commend Dr. Scanelli for a job well done and highly recommend him.
