I shattered my right arm and Dr. Longo was very compassionate. I am a hairdresser and my arm is my livelihood. He did surgery plate and pins and I have had a recovery nothing short of a miracle. After 2 months of physical therapy I had complete range of motion back. I recommend him to everyone.

Very friendly and accomodating...until i had my procedure done. Difficult to contact Dr. I am Not really interested in what 20 year old answering phone thinks is problem. Said Dr. Would contact me...its been four weeks..guess not. Called today to let them know that pain was still there..and more intense since procedure. “Well sometimes it doesn’t work”. No questions if there was swelling, fever, what brings on discomfort, how long does it last...nothing! I am furious..and very disappointed Ugh

I had a total knee replacement from Dr. Longo. This was my second knee replacement operation. With the first, I had another Dr. in town with very high ratings and had a terrible experience.Extremely painful and totaly ignored by that Dr. I put off the surgery for the second knee for 16 years, causing a lot of damage to my feet and ankles. FINALLY, went to Dr. Long and had the second knee. What a difference! Dr. Longo was everything the first Dr. was not. Regret not seeing Dr. Longo first.

Dr. Longo replaced both my hips and both my knees. I can't say enough how pleased I am with the results of all my surgeries. No complications, no problems and recovery was exactly how Dr. Longo said it would be. I'm a nurse and could have gone to any surgeon, but Dr. Longo's success rate, skill, knowledge and truly compassionate nature made it an easy decision to choose Dr. Longo. I highly recommend Dr. Longo and his team!!

We just love, love, love Dr. Longo and his staff, as for recommending him I do every chance I can, and many of my family and friends see him. He is number one in my book and I really dislike many Doctors. I never write reviews. Thank you. MC

Dr. Longo has replaced both of my hips. The right hip almost five years ago, the left this past October. I have been an elite athlete all my life and Dr. Longo's excellant skills have allowed me to regain my mobility and ride my bike again without pain. His attention to detail and his quality of care are unmatched as far as I am concerned. I have seen at least eight other orthopedic surgeons in AZ and CA. Simple the best..................
