Dr. Vitanzo is the greatest!! Rothman is very lucky to have him.
Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Vitanzo is the bomb. That means beyond fabulous. Professional, personable, patient and pain free!!! A GEM!!! Everyone who works at Rothman is great, nice, friendly, and helpful.
I visited Dr. Vitanzo referred by my doctorfor my knee. He stated that the x-rays showed nothing wrong with my knee and that the pain was coming from my back. I went back to my primary and insisted on getting an MRI. The MRI showed a ruptured Baker's cyst, torn meniscus and fluid. I will not be returning to see Dr. Vitanzo since he misdiagnosed me. I would not refer him to anyone as he was eager to get me out of the office.
Dear Patient, We would love to speak with you directly to gather more detail on your experience. If interested, please contact us at 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

I saw Dr. Vitanzo multiple times and was not happy. Each time, he did not do a physical evaluation. I was rushed and his communication skills were very poor. I was also misdiagnosed and went to physical therapy for no reason. Penn Sports Medicine identified and corrected my injury.

Philadelphia, PA |
Awful experience, I think the only time he looked at me was when I shook his hand. Said he'd be right back, I waited to ask questions, and he just went on to the next patient. Not very friendly either.
