Dr. DeBerardino is kind and caring. He has a wonderful personality and puts his patients at ease quickly. He took great care of repairing my broken ankle. Going back to him for knee! Can't say enough good about him.

I have a sister with Cerebral Palsy. While moving her in bed a few years ago her hip broke. I was an absolute mess.. Dr. Deberardino performed her surgery and I could not have been happier. He is the kindest, gentlest doctor (and man) I have ever dealt with. I am now looking at knee replacement surgery and he is my first choice. Will edit this once that is over and done with.

Dr Debaradino did my knee surgery. He is not only the nicest Dr. I have ever had the pleasure of deling with. He made me feel so at ease, took excellent care of me. His friendly, absolutely happy & outgoing bed side manor is very hard to come bye these days.He is honest and to the point.But truly cares about his patients. Many Dr's / Surgeons could take a few pages from his book! He is top In his field.As far as I'm concerned I wouldnt trust anyone else to take care of me. Best experience ever.
in Farmingdale, NY |
Our son hyperextended his knee playing SCSU football. Tore PCL, meniscus, hamstring. 6 months later he is walking normally with no pain and working out to play football next season. Hands down greatest bedside manner. Couldn't be more thankful to have had DR. Deberadino put our sons knee back together 110%.
