What People Say About Dr. Richard Angelo, MD
Sadly Dr. Angelo retired, but he repaired my left ACL 4 years ago and my right ACL 7 months ago. I have always been happy with him and his nurse Cindy, who is amazing. I recently found myself with knee pain in my left knee again, about to get a scope done by a different surgeon and its just not the same. I was lucky to have Angelo as my surgeon and Cindy helping us out because NO ONE is like that pair, hope retirement is treating him well.

Dr. Angelo repaired my completely torn rotator cuff and I am now back to 100% of my previous activities; working out, golfing, hiking, snowboarding, swimming, everything outdoors I love to do. In fact I am stronger than ever and 100% pain free!! I can't thank Dr. Angelo and his staff for everything they did for me! Just wish I would have gone in sooner so my repair wouldn't have been so dramatic.

excellent surgeon who explained my RTC condition very clearly and outlined all options. I choose surgical repair and am now 7 weeks and progressing nicely. So glad that I went to Dr. Angelo for my orthopedic needs,

I had what was considered a massive rotator cuff tear. Dr Angelo scheduled the surgery after advising me to quit smoking for a minimum of eight weeks prior to the surgery. I was not keen on that part but now realize Dr. Angelo knew what he was doing. I followed all of his instructions as well as the physical therapists instructions and now I am five months out from the surgery and have full range of motion and little to no pain.
