I met Dr. Romanelli back in Medical School, and I have followed his progress and been his patient on numerous occasions. He is highly intelligent, very caring, and very knowledgeable in his field. My sons and myself, as well as many of my friends have recieved treatment and surgery from him and I have been very pleased. Quite frankly, I would not recommend any other Dr. If you are in need of orthopaedic care or surgery. Dr. Romanelli is alone at the top of his field, you cant do any better!

As a new patient to Dr Romanelli, I had to wait a about 5 weeks to get an appointment with him. Have shoulder problems. The total wait time during the appointment from waiting room to exam was quick. Dr. took his time with examination and explanation.

Dr. R. is an intelligent, competent, patient, and, above all ACCESSIBLE provider who isn't happy until you have complete comfort in the knowledge of your procedure.

Dr. Romanelli is personable, professional and exceptionally skilled at his chosen field of medicine. He has honed his talents to become a premier provider of orthopedic care for his patients. He is the only physician who will care for my orthopedic needs.

I went to him with a torn meniscus in my knee. The wait in the exam room was over 40 minutes. He wanted to do a total knee replacement, which I thought was pretty extreme for a torn meniscus. When I wasn't receptive to a knee replacement he became very pushy. Naturally I had questions, but he didn't seem to want to be bothered with them and became quite rude. He said, I do 5 of these a day. I believe he does! I also believe he's looking at dollar signs and that is all he cares about.

Dr Romanelli operated on both my hands, a few weeks apart from each other, because of carpal tunnel syndrome. He was very professional and he explained what would need to be done as he wanted me to be comfortable in my decisions. He has a low key sense of humor which also helped put me at ease. I would definitely recommend him.
in Springfield, IL |
Dr. Romanelli is prompt in seeing you during visits and the staff is prepared to take care of both pre -appointment and post appointment details. Dr. Romanelli listens to your concerns and explains his diagnosis and treatment of the problem. My wife and I would trust his diagnosis and treatments totally and would not consider another orthopedic specialist..

Dr. Romanelli is an amazing doctor. My arm was not set properly when I was a child. He was very honest and concerned about it . He has done everything he can to help me retain a normal life with my deformed arm
