Dr. Savino is an excellent surgeon. My husband had a total knee replacement and is doing wonderfully. Not only the doctor, but his entire staff are professional and make you feel so comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone who is experiencing any orthopedic problem.

Dr. Richard Savino (with his PA-Physician Asst. Charlie and his Medical Asst. Jackie} is as wonderful physician and a truly down to earth human being. I had a knee replacement which was causing me great pain, until I came to Dr. Savino who x-rayed my knee from a different angle showing that the knee cap was not positioned properly by the original surgeon. Dr. Savino performed a revision surgery and I have had no knee pain since that day!

My entire experience with Dr. Savino, his office staff and his PA (Charlie, I believe) was nothing but positive. They are kind, commpassionate, and know how to explain a procedure at a laymen level. I walked in concerned that I would have chronic knee pain for life ---- now I am training to run in the next LI half marathon. I wouldn't hesitate to send any of my family or friends to see Dr. Savino for any orthopedic needs.

I had suffered from chronic knee pain for many years before seeing Dr. Saving. When I went to see Dr. Savino, I was nervous. He discussed my options and tried cortisone shots to avoid surgery. Although ultimately I needed surgery for a meniscus tear, I could not have asked for a better surgeon or for better care. Every option was discussed. He was professional and kind during every appointment/surgery, and after. I do not feel there is any physician who could have done better! Highly recommend!

Dr. Savino has provided outstanding care for my family and I. He has set the bar for which I judge other physicians. He truly understands and listens to his patients needs and questions. I have found him to be extremely thorough and receptive all questions. His office staff really went out of their way to make my 10 year old son feel like he will be back playing sports in a short amount of time. In my opinion he is the only Ortho Surgeon to see, and I have been to most of the other ones.
