Patient Comments (3)
in Watertown, MA |
Dr. Tornetta did an excellent job of explaining the pros and cons of the surgical options to fix my broken elbow. He's a friendly and attentive doc, and I only learned afterward about his 'star status' in the world of orthopedic surgery. He literally wrote the book on orthopedic trauma, and he's able to 'teach' both the students flanking him and his patients without being condescending. Great experience all around (except for the elbow breaking, that is).

He is the worst doctor ever. He is rude and uncaring. My son had bone injuries from a gunshot. He was taken to BMC (also the worst hospital ever). When my son complained of pain, this so called "doctor" told my son he would not give him any pain medicine. When my son begged for something to relieve the severe pain, this doctor said "don't get shot if you don't want to have pain". This doctor should lose his license for being so cruel.

Dr. Tornetta is a highly skilled medical professional. As a patient, I feel I received the highest level of care possible. Both he and his staff are extremely pleasant. My family and I were fully informed about my medical condition and all our questions were answered. He is a talented and accomplished surgeon. I speak from first-hand experience.
