He cancelled my full knee replacement surgery via a voice mail left by a front desk girl after business hours a week before. He can NOT do any complicated cases, only simple. We lost over 2 months and came to life-threatening situation of such unacceptable behaviour. We think about opening a law suit.

I absolutely love Dr. Carangelo!! He did my left shoulder surgery 14 yrs ago and again the same surgery on my right shoulder this time. He has a great bedside manner, always pleasant! He did a great job on surgery to both of my thumbs for trigger finger. I would definitely recommend him to anyone ( :

Dr Carangelo is the best by far, He operated on my arm and did knee replacement surgery on me. I've been to so many orthopedic drs. and he is the most compassionate and understanding doctor I have seen. Very understanding about your needs and concerns and doesn't rush you out. Looking forward to him doing my other knee replacement in May.

Great results for TKR. Personable, answers questions clearly and thoroughly. Only issue is that he is really busy and oftentimes there is a wait time at appointments. Once you are with him, he acts like you are the only one in the building when you know there are several waiting. Never rushes you. Recommended him to my best friend and she is scheduled for surgery on October 12th. SKB surgery April 29, 2016

It was awesome experience working with Dr. Carangelo. His knowledge on the condition of the patient and his plan to treat is just impeccable. I am glad and feel lucky that I was referred to him to treat my knee injury. He checked my MRI and went right to the point that I need ACL reconstruction. The surgery experience was very friendly too. He had given detailed PT plan for post surgery, and my knee feels like just normal in 5 months. Thank you so much Dr. Carangelo for everything.

Would not recommend this doctor...he did open incision on my shoulder when he could have done minimally invasive but later said why should I do that when I can do an open incision in less time. only concerned with himself.

I just had need replacement-- DR. Carangelo is the best--he has a great personality--very caring and a great surgeon--I never write reviews but had to do this to let other know that he truly and honestly that you will be in great hands. He has done my meniscus twice but the total knee replacement is harder but he took care of me by ordering a compression machine that was delivered to my hose to take down the swelling--totally through and so is his staff thanks to hillary for all her help-
