I recommend TOG 100%. I've had nothing but a great experience since the first day. Dr. Caruso takes his time and he has the best demeanor with his patients. He is straight forward and to the point. I never leave a visit guessing at what I should be expecting.

He is great! He genuinely cares about his patients. Its not about the money. I brought my son inone day for his elbow and I had a problem with my foot-he saw me and treated me right there free of charge. You dont find doctors who do that any more! I would recommend him to anybody!

Dr. Caruso is GREAT! One year ago I broke my ankle and during the last year with the surgery the follow up visits to now he has been very encouraging and a great doctor... even though I know at first I wasn't so nice to him but he was patient with me and helped me get back to 100% and back on my feet.

in Bordentown, NJ |
My sister went to Dr. Caruso and set up a knee surgery date. She was in pain and called to have something called in for pain. Dr. Caruso took his time getting back to her which made her extremely frustrated. Dr. Caruso treated my sister very unprofessionally and in the end told her to get another Dr. to do her surgery! In my opinion I would NOT recommend Dr. Caruso to operate on any of my family members. There are too many great doctors in the group to deal with the antics of Dr. Caruso.
in Levittown, PA |
Dr Caruso did a reverse shoulder replacement on my 87 year old mother in May. The surgery exceeded our expectations in regard to mobility, minimal pain, and ease of recovery. Dr Caruso is an expert in his field and a really nice guy. He always took her time with her and answered all our questions no matter how many there were. The office was well run as we rarely waited long . We highly recommend Dr Caruso for all orthopedic needs!!
in Yardley, PA |
Dr. Caruso has an incredible way with his patients and is very thorough. He takes his time and is very careful to respond to all questions and concerns. He is also personable and relates well to both adults and teenagers. His assistant is enthusiastic, friendly and thorough.
in Hamilton, NJ |
Dr Caruso has mastered his craft and has saved my quality of life. He operated on a complicated tibial plateau fracture caused by a freak beach accident. Not only is the Dr. a skilled surgeon, he has a compassionate, empathetic nature and helped me stay positive during a very difficult time of my life.
