Our family has been cared for by Dr. Tom for years and we love him. We will follow him wherever he is. He has done many surgeries for our family and we've never had any issues, only excellent results. I definitely recommend Dr. DeStefano 100% over anyone else in that field of treatment.

Went to his office did all sorts of test, kept sayin i was sprained. Finally i paid almost $500 to mri my leg an found out i needed surgery. ....unfortunately the surgery didn't go well. Went in at 11:00 am for a 1:00pm appointment had surgery at 7:30 pm. I think you can understand where im goin with this. Be safe and have a great day.

Dr. Distefano is fantastic surgeon PLUS has great bedside manners, something that's hard to find. He repaired my shoulder injury so well that PT said it was amazing how much range of motion I had after 4 weeks, & that's sign of an excellent surgery! He spends time with his patients & explains things as he goes. Worker's Comp. Man, Mark, is helpful & always available. Hospital where he does surgeries is the best you will find. His staff is helpful & friendly. I can't say enough good, A+ Surgeo
