Dr. Ciminiello made me feel very comfortable. During his review of my hip X-rays, he took the time to find out what my life style was and what goal I wanted to achieve with my surgery. He explained where the pain was from and how the Hip replacement procedure would eliminate my pain. He was highly recommended and now I know why. He truly cares about his patients and his team follows that lead. Very happy and now pain free.

Had my right knee replaced on 12/4/19 and the left one done on 8/4/20. Would have been done sooner if not for COVID-19. Dr Ciminello did an outstanding job on both knees. I have pain still from recovering in the outer part of my shins when I stand up. It’s all part of the recovery. He told me that after 2 years I will be as healed as it will get. I have no joint pain in my knees thank you Doc. He his staff and PBMC were great with pre surgery and post surgery absolutely outstanding. Recommend anyone needing knee/hip replacement he’s the man.

I would recommend Dr. Ciminiello to anyone who is considering hip surgery. I went in with daily pain and came out with none. I went in limping, and after a few weeks of following rehab guidelines was up to walking three miles per day. I am back to my previous routines feeling better than ever. Dr. Ciminiello is a caring, kind and efficient surgeon. If it wasn't for COVID restrictions I would have given him a hug for bringing the real me back to life.

Wish there were 10 stars, this guy is the best! Totally success with knee replacement, no more pain!! Of course there is pain with recovery and getting back in shape, but it's mild, at least for me. Dr. Ciminiello also has a great bed side manner, is sociable and will answer all your questions prior to surgery!! His whole staff is fabulous, my experience was excellent. Highly recommend!!

What an amazing experience all around! From the moment I met Dr. Ciminello, I thought he was knowledgable and skilled at his craft. My hip replacement surgery was flawless. Dr. Ciminello was kind and caring. All the the staff from the OR nurses, to the floor nurses and the PT therapist were flawless and attentive. The hospital was well equipped and having a private room was terrific, even the food was great. I was up and walking the afternoon after my surgery and I felt so much stronger. The healing has been steady and tracked through the Force email/text system through which I can reach Heather and the staff at any time for refills, questions and such. Had I know how well I would feel and what a good experience this all was I certainly would have had surgery sooner! Thank Dr. Ciminello and all the staff that took such good care of me!

Dr. Ciminiello is simply the BEST. His knowledge, care and immense talent made all of the difference in my total hip replacement. Working with an incredible team by his side, I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I am up on my feet and back to my life again and it is all due to the skilled hands of this incredible man. Thank you so much, Dr. C--you're very gifted and I'm so lucky to have been under your care!

Dr. Ciminiello has done knee replacement surgery on both my knees. I would not have had the second surgery if I was not completely satisfied. He is one of the few surgeons who does after care. Dr. Ciminiello truly cares about the recovery of his patients, and is a caring person! If you have an issue either he or a member of his team will respond in a timely manner. I would not go to any other surgeon, he is the best!
