    gruff bedside manner. He said it would be microsurgery for my back. The day of My surgery he tells me it won't be microsurgery. I was told that the day after my surgery I would be back to my normal self which I thought to myself was odd. Literally in those words. He told me for sure it would be completely gone several months later for a big event I had. It hadn't gone away. I attempted to ask about natural /other ways to cope w/pain while i prep for surgery & he told me nothing else can be done.

    The worst doctor ever
    Hackettstown, NJ |
    The absolute worst doctor I have ever been too. Please do not I repeat do not go to him. He is arrogant. He said to me what do you want me to do for you. I said get me out of pain he shrugged his shoulders and said I don't know what you want from me. Are you kidding he's the doctor I went to him for help he did nothing at all he did not care what a waste of time. I only wanted help he would not help me at all. Her did nothing. He is a waste of time. Do not go to him.

    I have never left a doctors appointment more upset. Dr. Collalto did not listen to what I had to say. He did not want to answer my questions about my health care options. He would not offer any other options either. He was arrogant, sarcastic and dismissive. When asked about the side effects of a procedure his response was, "If you are truly in pain, you will try it. If you refuse, you must not be in pain." The notes from our visit indicated we were fully informed...we were not.

    Dr. Collalto is an experienced and excellent surgeon. If you are looking for warm and fuzzy he is not your guy. No-nonsense but an excellent doctor. Finally without pain after three months and a spinal laminectomy performed by him. He got me the answers I desperately needed and now I am back to my life!

    Second time I go see him (because no one else was available and the 2nd time I was in really bad pain) and once again, he did nothing. Didn't even check the X-rays that were taking in the office. Dismissing what I was saying and not even checking me, he said he thought the issue is he same as before and if I wanted, he could give me medicine or a shot. What was my issue before? He said nothing. How can I trust him? He didn't check anything. Didn't even care to listen. Still in pain and mad

    Dr. Collalto was efficient and kind. I was blessed to not have any difficulties, I needed no special attention before, during, or after surgery,however, I felt that he would be understanding and available. It has been about 7 years and I now live in PA and if I ever need care of any kind, I will come back to Jersey and see Dr. Collalto!
    in Califon, NJ |
    Any question I had and any point I brought up was abruptly dismissed. No warmth whatsoever and no experience that he cared one bit. Even IF he is a skillful surgeon I wouldn't trust him to provide my surgery. Does he not understand the concept of healthCARE?
    Somerset, NJ |
    Not a good experience. Didn't seem to care. Dismissive. Not a good representative for HMC. Definitely would nit recommend Very arrogant.
    in Hillsborough, NJ |
    I found him understanding and he gave me his full attention.
    Dr. Collarto was not only unprofessional, but misdiagnosed my broken ankle, WITH benefit of x-rays his office performed - causing me more harm than good. His arrogance was astounding, especially in light of his total misdiagnosis.
    in Annandale, NJ |
    Dr. Collalto seemed disinterested and only had one solution in mind. Was not willing to spend time answering my questions and seemed like he was in a rush to move on to the next patient all of the 3 times I was there.
