The surgeon that I was originally referred to told me that nothing could be done for my shoulder except surgery due to a tear. x-rays were taken as well as an MRI. Dr.Tomaino gave me a cortisone shot and sent me to therapy. After six weeks my shoulder feels great! I still do my exercises every day but hopefully I won't need surgery. If I do need surgery it will be micro-surgery. I can't thank Dr. Tomaino enough from saving me from a painful operation and a long recovery. He is great!

I WAS DR TOMANO'S FIRST PATIENT AFTER GOING ON HIS OWN. HE REPLACED MY LEFT SHOULDER. I COULD NOT RAISE MY ARM ABOVE MY CHEST. ABOUT THREE WEEKS AFTER SURGERY & EXCELLENT THERAPY, MY SHOULDER STARTED WORKING BETTER THAN BEFORE. IN NO TIME AT ALL I GAINED 100% USE OF MY ARM AGAIN. DR. TOMANO'S KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS ARE SUPERIOR . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERYONE I TALK TO. MY RIGHT SHOULDER IS NEARLY DUE FOR SURGERY & YOU CAN BE ASSURED IT WILL BE DONE BY DR. MATT CAN BET IT WILL BE DONE BY

My first experience, by far exceeded my expectations. It was the absolute best experience I've ever had at any doctor's office. Dr.Tomaino and every single person in that office were beyond personable, friendly, caring, thorough, and knowledgeable........simply a wonderful experience !

Dr. Tomaino and his wife along with all his staff is the best there is. They preformed shoulder surgery on my right shoulder and I can say that I have less pain than I did before the surgery and it's only been 3 weeks since I had the surgery. I could not be more thankful for there great service. A big thanks to the Tomaino's!

Saw Doctor Tomaino for a wrist injury. Doctor Tomaino is very thorough and has a wonderful bed side manner. The staff is friendly and the wait is minimal. Not only would I recommend him but I have. My father, wife and my youngest son have all seen Doctor Tomaino and all share my high opinion of him!!
