Dr. Ciccotti and his assistant Jen are great! Doctor listens carefully and explains the issue clearly laying out all the options and always starting with the most conservative and non-surgical option. He puts your mind at ease and is very knowledgeable at knee issues. The usual wait time is 1-2 hrs but it’s worth it.

Dr Cicotti is awesome. He performed two rotator cuff shoulder surgeries and an ACL reconstruction on my knee and my outcomes were all 100% back to normal. Dr Cicotti thoroughly explains all diagnostic tests and procedures and ensures all questions and concerns are addressed. I never feel rushed during my visits but appointments occasionally get backed up which can happen anywhere. I highly recommend Dr Cicotti.

Wonderful. He is always so professional and provide such great explanation of his findings while using pictures and notes to help you understand. I had surgery with him one year ago and is doing great. He spends time with me and made me feel like he really cares for me as an individual. Each time that I have seen him, my outcomes have been great. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Ciccotti

100% satisfied with my total knee replacement. No problems. Wonderful bedside manner. Followed up with my visits and listened to what I had to say. He provided the very best patient for me. Also his team treated me with respect before my surgery in the O.R. holding area. Care from Jeff nurses upon my stay was exceptional which I appreciated. Thank you DR, CICCOTTI AND TEAM.

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!

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.
