Dr. Ciccotti was very professional, took the time to listen to my problems and concerns and was empathetic and reassuring. He explained the issue thoroughly and in layman’s terms and did the same for the all my treatment options. I highly recommend Dr. Ciccotti and will continue to use his services.

Dr. Ciccotti treated my son after an injury during a wrestling match. He explained the injury and upcoming surgery fully and in language that we all understood. He treated my son with compassion and reassurance that he would be back at his sport again. He made the decision easy for us all. From the day of surgery to after, the care he and Rothman Ortho provided was well worth the drive. I highly recommend!

My experience with Dr. Ciccoti was great. He explains the diagnosis and treatment options very well, and his bedside manner is great. He also cares for his patients throughout the process. Which is why he is one of the top orthopedic doctors.

Dr Ciccotti spent as much time as I needed to examine, explain , and review my problems; he then proceeded to give me options for treatment with the risks and benefits of each. He has a great bedside manner and he is a wonderful communicator ..

Was more than a visit. Dr. Ciccotti evaluated me for shoulder surgery, performed the surgery, and has been following my case for mos following the surgery. He is an extremely skilled physician with a very good bedside manner. He is most highly recommended. I believe he is one of the best physicians I have ever seen.

Dr. Cicchotti did my ACL reconstruction. I had a complication (cyclops lesion) that he did not diagnose, despite my repeated complaints during my many follow up visits with him over a 1 year period. He did not listen to me, belittled me and told me that my pain and problems were "all in my head". By the time I finally found another physician to help me, my legs were so weak that both patellas mistracked and I had to wear braces. I ended up getting a second surgery at Penn to remove the cyclops.

This dr has poor bedside manner. I was referred to him and he was very cold. Not warm and welcoming in anyway. He threw statistics at me as if that was reassuring. When I left his office I did not feel comforted to know that my surgery was in good hands and the Dr actually cared about me. I ended up scheduling my surgery with someone who was kind to me and showed some empathy.

This is my second child with an ACL repair, and our second surgery with Dr. Ciccotti. As the father of some advanced athletes, I feel very lucky to have been referred to him. His hands are touched by God.
