Excellent surgeon, great bedside manner, and surgical skills. Hard to believe anyone could write a bad review about him, but I guess if you’re picking doctors off internet reviews you have bigger problems than just your health. Some people aren’t satisfied with anything, but everyone I know that’s seen him thinks he walks on water. Can speak for myself after he put my arm back together with multiple surgeries after a bad wreck. Definetly tops in my book,

A++ Have seen Dr. Forno on multiple occasions for different problems in my hand, wrist, and shoulder over the years. His diagnosis and explanations have always been spot on. His candor, warmth, and bedside manner are second to none. I had my rotator cuff repaired by him with excellent results. My husband has had 2 hand surgeries from him with perfect results as well. I’ve referred friends and family to him, all with similar experiences. Stellar reputation that is well deserved.

My experience was almost exactly like the person who rated Dr. Forno on March 25, 2017. I had a carpal tunnel release under local anesthesia in October.. He talked nonstop to the OR staff and he never once asked how I was doing. When I told him it was hurting and asked him to stop talking, he was rude and condescending. I was told it was a simple 15 minute procedure and it was ""no big deal."" I am now 7 weeks post-op with nerve pain and some loss of use in that hand. I'm so sorry I went to him

I give Dr. Forno and his staff A 5 Star rating. He did a Complete shoulder replacement November of 2016. I had excellent surgery and recovery.
Dr. Forno and his staff were all friendly and very helpful. My surgery (carpal tunnel on right hand) went very well, timing was perfect, and I experienced no pain and healed quickly. I would recommend Dr. Forno in a heart beat! He was caring and realistic about my care.
Horrible, horrible! I had a tendon release surgery in May 2016. I only have the use of one arm/hand. I injured the one & only hand I could use. He told me it was going to be a simple surgery & easy recovery & that I could use my arm immediately after surgery. Less than one year later and my arm is in more pain than ever. During my surgery he was having a discussion with his assistant about his new sports car & how fast it was. He is rude & does not listen at all

dr forno did 3 surgeries on my hand over the last 3 months. i had a tendon release on the wrist and 2 needle aponeurotomies for du puytrens's contracture. all in the right hand. he did excellent jobs in all 3. i have had needle aponeurotomies in the past and the procedure itself was very painful and the outcome mediocre . this time it was " a walk in the park" and the outcome very good! even though dr forno can be a bit short sometimes, he is the best hand specialist i have come across
