My experience at Dr. Vizzi’s was nothing but positive. Everyone was courteous and responsive. I was initially nervous about receiving my first ever steroid injection, however, Dr. Vizzi’s PA, Ann, eased my fears and did a wonderful job. My shoulder pain is gone.

I just had 3 meniscus tears cleaned up and a cyst removed from the same knee. I experienced no pain after surgery and felt confident in my care through the whole process. Dr. Vizzi is very professional and to the point. His staff is warm, friendly, and very personable. I’ve already referred a coworker and my mother. 100% satisfied.

I’m so greatful to Dr. Vizzi! I have severe osteoarthritis. I was having horrible pain just walking. I heard of Dr. Vizzi when I was taking injections to help the pain. I made an appointment and couldn’t be more pleased! Dr. Vizzi was very easy to speak to. He listened to all I had to say. He ordered ex rays and explained to me why I was hurting. You get answers the same visit! I needed hip and knee replacements! Thanks to Dr Vizzi, I feel alive again. Awesome doctor and awesome staff!

Mother, 93, saw Dr Vizzi with severe knee pain and inability to walk on it. She was X-rayed, given a cortisone shot and sent on her way. We asked about surgery down the road and he said she's too old. A week later we saw another orthopedist who took fluid, discovered a severe infection and she had surgery on 10/7. As of this writing (11/2) she remains hospitalized undergoing Physical Therapy.
