Not a good doctor. Had zero time, and even less patience, for me—especially, as, I was feeling really bad, really debilitated from my injury, especially the cause of it, a domestic-based concern. He also lost the x-ray CD, but refused to admit that; was uptight about disclosing his educational history and training; LITERALLY screamed at me during subsequent visits AND threatened me (“Maybe you should find another orthopedic physician!”) when I asked ANY question. I got cort shot elsewhere: cured

Dr. Arciero is a talented, kind surgeon. He replaced our daughter's meniscus and performed a femoral allograft (replacing damaged femur and cartilage) Truly life-changing, we can't thank him enough.

It was obvious Dr. Arciero was not giving his full attention. Getting answers to questions and additional information was like pulling teeth. He was uninterested in devoting serious time to my medical issue.

Dr Arciero operated on my shoulder after a mountain bicycle accident in 2010. This included restoring a shattered glenoid by inserting a pair of two-inch screws into the joint. Not only was the operation very successful, but Dr Arciero's bed side manner was terrific. I was also very impressed and pleased with the six months of physical therapy I received with Uconn Health. Recently, 7 years later, I came back to Dr Arciero with some questions about my joint, and received similar professionalism

I've had issues with my shoulder for nearly 10 years. Doctor Arciero has been the only person I've seen for it and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I finally just got cleared yesterday - hopefully for the last time, and I will genuinely miss seeing him. I'm happy my shoulder is fixed, but he is such a kind and caring man. You can tell he really has a calling to help people. He is so knowledgable and makes sure you understand every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to everyone and anyone

Dr Arciero is one of the best Docs I've ever seen. He listens intently, does a full exam of the problem and explains what is happening and next steps. You never feel you are competing with him while talking. He doesn't rush you or jump to conclusions about what you're trying to say. He is extremely knowledgeable and honestly, very caring. The kind of Doc we all deserve to have!

Dr. Arciero and his MA were amazing. Very kind and spoke in real people talk so we understood his diagnosis and his suggestion for treatment. He is very knowledgeable and put us at ease from the moment he walked in the room. Although the front desk staff could be friendlier, once you get past that, all is great!!

My right shoulder was literally destroyed from a football injury that left me in constant pain and limited range of motion. Dr Arciero pinpointed within seconds of my explaining the injury and source(s) of pain exactly what the repair approach would be. His Bed Side Manner is calming and confident and I don't even like needles. I'm currently waiting on surgery for my other shoulder in Worcester, MA and was comparing Patient Satisfaction results to see how my new Surgeon stacked up to #1.

Dr Arciero takes his time with his patients, carefully explaining procedures using a white board and imagining. We would highly recommend him for complex shoulder surgeries.
