Dr. DiCaprio is a top notch surgeon. His bedside manor is awesome! He is kind compassionate and honestly an excellent surgeon. I had a total hip replacement and feel like I have a whole new life because of him! His assistant Brad is top of the line as well! His kindness and bed side manor. The thorough explanations. This surgical team is magic to me! They are truly a talented team of professionals! I am so grateful that my pain management PA referred me to this practice. Thank you to everyone at Dr. DiCaprio's!

A terrible person and doctor. He is a liar and has terrible bedside manner. Avoid at all costs. Literally walked out on me while I was trying to explain my problems. Because I was overweight, he didn't feel I deserved relief and actually told me to see a chiropractor for osteo-arthritis... A CHIROPRACTOR!! This man should not have a medical license!

1 hour wait for 90 second exam. Got ankle brace that is helpful, but he just kind of "kicked the can down the road," offering no diagnosis, treatment plan or prognosis for relieving the pain I was experiencing. This was my second exam and now I have a third with a soecialist.

I cannot say enough about this incredible doctor. I researched carefully for top orthopedics in upstate New York and was impressed with Dr. DiCaprio's affiliation with Yale, his honors and special commitment to sarcoma, children and fundraisers to help those in need. He has an extensive background which is what I was looking for. My surgery went better than expected; Dr. DiCaprio has golden hands and a vested interest in his patients well being. I highly recommend him without reservation.

Dr. DiCaprio is kind, compassionate and at the top of his game. He ALWAYS has time for his patients, both in person and if you call on the phone. I was diagnosed with lipo sarcoma and he and his staff were so patient, responsive and caring. Now that removal of the tumor is behind me and I have been with Dr DiCaprio for two plus years, I am so very thankful that HE was the ONE local doctor. We are all very lucky to have him in our area.
