Had a first meeting with dr. Nigro today and after the visit I have never felt like such a waste of my time. He totally dismissed my ailments and chalked everything up to "arthritis". I went in with multiple issues (knees and hand injury). He chalked all up to arthritis without even ordering an MRI until I insisted that there is something wrong beyond arthritis. I have had several other surgeries and have been told by reputable other doctors that theres alot that doesn't show up on X-rays.alone

I had both shoulders replaced with Dr. Nigro. He shows extreme compassion on exams and never rushes through an office visit, always asks if I have any more questions. He is very thorough, and makes me feel comfortable and well cared for. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was very anxious about having my hip replaced, but Dr. Nigro was not just professional but patient and explained everything thoroughly. The office staff is friendly and very accommodating which makes the experience more pleasant. Best of all, I no longer have pain when walking, sitting for long periods. Happy to get my life back!
