in Bethpage, NY |
Dr Ciminello is a wonderful Doctor however the front desk is terrible. They are inflexible in providing proper patient care. I had knee injections done a few months later I began to experience terrible pain in my knees. The front desk refused to accommodate me when I argued with them about the pain I was in and I needed my doctor urgently they refused and hung up on me!

If Dr Ciminiello was not referred to me or was not such an excellent surgeon I would not have made an appointment. When I called the office a young person answered the phone and when she couldn't understand me she hung up. When I called back and tried to explain what happened she was rude and abrupt. She continued to be discourteous and when I told her if Dr Ciminiello was not such a good Dr I would not have come here she hung up on me again! Office needs more mature, respectful staff.
in Holbrook, NY |
Outstanding experience. Compassionate and caring doctor.
in Bay Shore, NY |
Had a total knee replacement and as far as I am concerned, Dr. CIminiello walks on water. He is kind, caring and an amazing surgeon. He made me feel so at ease and put all my fears to rest. Have recommended to numerous people. I have minimal scaring and am able to do everything.
in East Hampton, NY |
Dr Ciminiello is patient, and thorough and does an amazing surgical job and leaves minimal scarring. I have had him replace my right hip, my right knee, and in the near future my left knee. I recommend him to everyone I know who needs a hip or a knee replaced.
in Suffolk County, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Ciminiello for about 6 years.I have arthritis of the the right knee which was being treated by this doctor with injections. At no time was I ever pressured into having surgery. In May 2016 I opted to have TKR. Just 3 weeks post op I am able to walk without pain. I am attending PT 3x/week and the therapist is amazed at how well I am progressing.I can never thank Dr. Ciminiello enough for giving me my mobility back. Highly recommend this caring and excellent physician
in East Moriches, NY |
Dr. Ciminiello is a very caring and empathic doctor. I needed a knee replacement. He treated me with everything he had prior to the surgery, never once did he pressure me into doing it. He said that when I was ready, I would let him know. My surgery went very smoothly, with no complications.
