      Dr. Nuzzo and the staff at SPOC provided excellent care to me when I fell and broke my ankle. It was a traumatic injury for me. I received caring support from my initial visit through the surgery and during these months of recuperation. I have already recommended Dr. Nuzzo to several friends that have orthopedic needs.

      Dr. Nuzzo repaired a severe rotater cuff in my left shoulder. He and his office made sure I understood the procedure, the timing and the recovery before committing to having this done. He is direct yet patient. Several weeks following surgery, I began experiencing pain again and he was able to get me in quickly and reassure me that this was normal and my earlier pain-free post surgery status was not average - that the new pain was typical and to keep doing PT and all I had been.

      I brought my daughter to Dr. Nuzzo for an ACL repair. It was by far the best medical experience we have had. Dr. Nuzzo and his staff were very professional and courteous. Dr. Nuzzo genuinely cares about his patients. He listened to our concerns and answered any questions we asked. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nuzzo to any of my family and or friends.

      I would recommend Dr Nuzzo to anyone who asks, his personality is easy going and he explains things well. I fractured my Humerus skiing, Dr Nuzzo placed some screws and a plate in my arm. This was back in January 2016 and 3 months later all heeled and doing well!
      in Clovis, California |
      Dr Nuzzo and his staff are the best. I am gratefully surprised at how well my surgery went and how well I feel at this point, I attribute that to Dr Nuzzo being highly skilled and experienced at what he does, no messing around! I have brothers who have served in the military and I thank you Dr Nuzzo for your service!

      Dr Nuzzo evaluated my shoulder injury after an x-ray and MRI. We discussed treatment options and he showed the damage, explained the injury and recommended surgery to repair it. He explained the surgery procedures and the recovery timeline. The surgery went as planned and the recovery with Physical Therapy has gone as planned. I had much damage to my shoulder and today after surgery and Physical Therapy it is as good ,or better than before the injury..I would recommend Dr. Nuzzo to anyone.
