I recommend Dr. Michael Marandola without hesitation. I'm a 63 year old man who underwent bilateral (both) full knee replacements with Dr. Marandola eight weeks ago. I've been his patient for the past 14 years. I'm extremely grateful that Dr. Marandola performed my surgery. His professionalism, his caring and compassionate bedside manner, his technical expertise, and his post-surgery follow-up care are unsurpassed. I'm absolutely thrilled with my outcome. Mark Westling

My experiences with Dr. Marandola has been exceptional. He took care of my shoulder problem last year and is now helping me with my left hip impingement. If you go beyond his great medical care you will find a Doctor with the best bedside manner. His staff should also receive 5 stars. I highly recommend this physician. Thank you for all your help.

I have had both a knee and a shoulder repaired by Dr Marandola and have found him to be very caring, takes time to explain the issues, recommends surgery only as a last result
