Patient Comments (7)
in Wilton CT |
Dr Protomastro's bedside manner (lack thereof), arrogance and lack of patient concern is remarkable. Post ankle surgery, Dr P completely disregarded continued health issues tied to her diabetes, specifically the incision which caused an emergency trip to wound care and 3 weeks of excruciating treatment at another hospital and also missed an RSD diagnosis causing horrible pain and delayed healing. Horrible, horrible experience. WOULD NEVER recommend seeing him.

excellent clinician-- pleasant bedside manner

the best rotator cuff surgeon out there, no pain fast recovery the staff is through and prompt. Costal orthopedics is a great group

Dr. Protomastro was brought in by Norwalk Hospital to do a repair of my shattered right wrist after I fell on ice in 2008. It was a complicated second surgery after the initial emergency surgery done to prevent infection and set my wrist. He did such a beautiful job and withmy subsequent therapy was completely successful in fully restoring 100% of the use of my hand and wrist and arm functions. I am right handed and I cannot say enough my gratitude that I have full use and no impairment or pain.

I thought he was great! Dr. Proto explained very clearly that my broken wrist would benefit from surgery and that I would have my flexibility and life back to nearly normal in 3 months. He couldn't have been more right. I am 6 weeks post surgery and I am without the brace and able to do most everything my life requires. I was disciplined in my hand therapy. BTW they are part of his medical group and are great. Liked his personality, his professionalism and his caring manner. Good Doc!

Very positive experience for ER emergency surgery for ankle fracture. Very professional, efficient and courteous. His office runs smoothly and efficiently, making all follow up appointments easy to deal with. I highly recommend Dr. Protomastro.
in Westport, CT |
In October 2015, I completely tore my rotator cuff while throwing a ball. Dr. Protomastro saw me on a walk-in basis, and confirmed the diagnosis through an x-ray and an MRI. Surgery was on Nov. 10, and sutures removed Nov. 20. Arthroscopic, so barely visible incisions. I can't say enough about how great my shoulder feels at this point; recovery going much better than I anticipated. Doctor was very specific with what activities could be done, and when, and recovery times. Highly recommend
