in Sun Prairie, WI |
I was referred to Dr. Scerpella by an out of network orthopedic surgeon because of a rare injury. I could not have received better care. She is attentive and caring. Dr. Scerpella knew exactly how to fix my leg! And, as an added bonus, her bedside manor is wonderful. I was the 3rd patient she performed a "Tib/Fib reconstruction with a hamstring autograph". She is AMAZING, and did indeed fix my leg. Go see her... unless you DON'T want the best. #healed #grateful #blessedtobeunderhercare.

Whatever you do, DON'T question the actions of any of her staff! When you do & ask why you were treated rudely, she will argue about how perfect her staff is & drop you as a patient. She will tell you she will call you no later than the following day& NEVER call. Don't cross your arms because she will tell you that you're being adversarial, without asking why they're crossed. NOT GOOD AT PATIENT RELATIONS!!!!

Dr. Scerpella is fantastic! I'm a medically complicated case, and she's spent over a year and a half trying all sort of methods--not just surgery--to fix my injury and help me walk. She is often running late for appointments, but it's because she spends the time she needs to with the patients, not the time that UW Health says she should. She is super smart and caring; she makes the best decision for the patient, even if it's a difficult one.
