Excellent Physical Therapy staff! Doctor Romano is a caring, compassionate and trustworthy doctor. I have been cared for in 3 different occasions for sport injuries and he has been able to successfully keep me competing with a full recovery. He truly can be trusted with any orthopedic injury. My family and I will definitely keep him as our physician for orthopedic care.

Dr. Romano has been my orthopedic doctor for 23 years. He is positive, compassionate and extremely talented. On August 10th, 2018 after exhausting all the alternatives, he performed a complete right knee replacement. Immediately after waking up in recovery, I felt better. Rehab is a big part of recovery, but Dr. Romano did an amazing job. His staff including Morgan Crandall, PA, Jessica (his surgical coordinator) and all the folks there are amazing and helpful. They are the best.

Dr. Romano is amazing with kids, took my 6 year old son for a visit when he broke his wrist. Dr. Romano was so patient, gentle, and interacted with him on his level, took all the worries out and my son was very happy. His did need a cast and the wrist healed perfectly. Have since recommended Dr. Romano to all my friends in need.

Excellent Doctor. All my family are his patients. He is patient and knowledgeable . The best I have meet in many years, took my children too many different orthopedics doctors, no one was able to give us the service and the attention that Dr. Romano gave us. My children are very active in sports and Doctor Romano understood and help them. My great recommendation for him.

I'm really not sure what some of these negative reviews are about. I've nothing but a terrific experience with Dr. Romano and his talented staff. He's helped my sleep apnea, my overall health and chronic lower back problems all without surgery. Can't recommend him enough.

Performed terrible ACL surgery on my son, which had to be corrected by a competent surgeon at U of Chicago hospitals. I wouldn't see this hack for hangnail.

He was very thorough, explained every thing he was doing. Gave me the choice of two treatment approaches to try before going with surgery. Took his time with me to explain why I was having problems .

Looks like he's double-dipping by getting patients to come back multiple times to treat different parts of the body on separate occasions - shoulders one visit, elbows another etc. Couldn't produce a policy for me. Didn't know the billing codes they would use for my visit. I never got to see the Dr as I didn't want that practice managing my health. No emphasis on the patient experience - just focused on pushing as many patients through each day so they can bill, bill, bill
