Dr. Tomanio talks to you, not at you. Explains everything. Very comfortable environment. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. He did an amazing job fixing my shoulder.

I would recommend Dr Tomaino to any one. Dr Tomaino and his staff are the best at what they do. They made me feel comfortable and confident about every part of the process. They listen and are always available to support your needs and questions. I was able to return to work in construction because of Dr Tomanio and his staff. The care and recommendations for post surgery were also great ( p/t and o/t ). I wouldn't be where I'm at today if I hadn't chosen Dr Tomaino and his staff .

Tomaino Orthopedics was a very pleasing experience. Amy, Bonnie and Lisa the doctors staff are highly trained and very personable. The staff all knows who you are and are very efficient in all levels of care. Dr Tomaino is also very personable and thorough with his care and a highly respected talented surgeon. Its is wonderful being treated as an individual . I would rate my experience a five star! Carol Bonczek
in Ontario, NY |
Dr. Tomaino is a miracle worker! I have lived with numbness and pain for five plus years, and in a matter of hours after my surgery, it was nearly gone. It has only been two weeks since the surgery and I am already 100 percent better than before surgery and I am more still healing. Anybody out there looking to have surgery for your hands, or shoulders, look no further! There is no better.
Hilton, NY |
I had a very pleasant experience with everyone at Dr. Tomaino's office. Everyone that I met was so professional and treated me like I was their #1 priority. Dr. Tomaino was very thorough and knowledgeable of my injury. He took ample time with me and explained my diagnoses of my wrist and hand pain. Not many doctors take the time to explain everything like Dr. Tomaino did. I did not feel rushed and D. Tomaino made sure all my questions were answered before I left.
in Bergen, NY |
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!
in DANSVILLE, NY |
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
in Rochester, NY |
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 !
in Dansville, NY |
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!
in Rochester, NY |
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!!
