Dr. Boiardo recently performed surgery in my big toe that had a bunion and was totally crooked. within a month and a half I was able to drive and wear shoes. My foot was still getting swollen but I understood it was normal because the toe was not totally healed. Dr. Boiardo is a great doctor and I would recommend him to anyone with toe problem. He is also a gentleman.

Richard Boiardo is the best by far. He does an amazing job. There's no comparison, I've been to many Orthopedic surgeons but he was the only one that was actually helpful

On Tuesday, July 11th, my mother was waiting with my grandmother and she accidentally spilled a bit of coffee on a wood chair. He yelled at the top of his lungs, made my mother clean it, and threw my mom and grandmother out of his office. I cannot believe that this type of behavior is considered normal. It was extremely hurtful and highly offensive. I plan to call Consumer Affairs this week. Dr. Boiardo is a horrible person.

Dr. Boiardo has been the 1 & only orthopedic surgeon for my family for over 20 years; several intricate surgeries, all being complete successes! He has wisdom that is only obtained from many years of experience. February 15, 2017 Dr. Boiardo performed surgery on my future daughter-in-law’s leg, to correct another surgeon’s grievous mistakes. Thanks to Dr. B, she is now back to work & walking, not only pain free, but the best she has walked in almost 2 years, he deserves 10 stars from my family!!
Dr. Boiardo performed revision hip replacement surgery on 5/1/17. The next day I was able to walk corridor and a flight of stairs at Hoboke Med Ctr. As of June 6 walking without the aid of a cane or walker. Minimal discomfort

Dr. Boiardo was not only the best surgeon, but he was the best advocate for my spouse and me in our time of uncertainty. He gave us hope,compassion and victory over our bleek medical situation. Thank you Dr. Boiardo! Dianne & Timmy

Dr.Boiardo did hip replacement surgery on my moms 92 year old best friend....Eileen K. she was able to walk with a walker within 2 weeks of her surgery. I recommended him to several people after witnessing Eileen's speedy recovery and overall outcome.

Yesterday,I went to doctors office with my mom.While my mom was being seen,I mentioned to doctor that as a 19 year old college cross country runner,I was in severe pain due to shin splints. Dr Boiardo immediately assessed my situation and ordered an MRI. I am not suggesting that potential patients go to his office with out an appointment, but you tell me what doctor would be that cool and approachable ? Knowledgable in his field, Dr.Boiardo quickly explained what caused my condition.Thank You!

Dr.Richard Boiardo MD has 38 years of experience in his field, yet concurrently keeps up with the LATEST surgical techniques .Doctor performs "MAKOplasty" total hip replacement. To my knowledge, this is an anterior hip replacement technique, which is more precise and accurate than older or other methods of hip replacement. Enveloped in severe pain and barely walking, I had hip surgery on April 12, 2017 and today May 16,2017 , I am pain free ! Walking with a new outlook on life! Thanks Doctor.

My father went to see Dr. Boiardo for sciatic pain. Turns out he needed urgent hip replacement surgery. From day one, He treated us like family. He patiently answered all my questions. Dr. Boiardo is compassionate, charming and friendly. We wished we would have met him earlier.
I thought that my life as I know it was over. Thank goodness the "miracle Dr. Boiardo" performed Hip Surgery on me and I now have my life back and my life-style and I could never thank him enough for his excellent service as well as his professionalism and very kind demeanor.

I fell down my steps while doing laundry and fractured my leg in three places. I was rushed to St. Michaels medical center where I met Dr. Boiardo. I was terrified to have the surgery but Dr. Boiardo made me feel like I was his only patient and I felt in my gut that I was in good hands and I was!!!! The surgery was a success and here I am one week later with very minimal pain or discomfort. I would recommend Dr. Boiardo to anyone that might need orthopedic surgery. He exudes confidence!!!
