Dr. Diana was on time and for a specialist, that is unusual. He felt that my issue was not a surgical fix and recommended three options to hopefully fix the problem.

He was very professional and he took the time to listen to my needs. His willingness not to do unnecessary treatment in order to schedule an MRI was most appreciated!

So far I have been satisfied with Dr. Diana. He appears to actually listen to the patient and does his best to accommodate your needs. He was able to get appropriate diagnostic procedures approved by my reluctant insurance company without them "jumping me through hoops". He cuts to the core of the issue without a lot of dissembling.

I was greeted quickly , brought in for xrays immediately and was then taken to a room where my knee was drained of fluid . My options were explained to me in a clear manner and I was out the door soon thereafter.

I was seen on an emergency basis by Dr. Diana. It was the best thing that could have happened to me. He was professional and careful in his diagnosis. He scheduled me for immediate quad tendon repair surgery and he and his staff were informative and helpful through the process. I like his style and I welcomed it in my surgical experience with him. I hope to never need any orthopedic surgery again, but if I do.....I will only use Dr. Diana. Charlie Frattini
