Felt the exam was very thorough investigating my hip pain. Went beyond simply looking at xrays to determine problem.

Very good doctors and staff.
Dr. Romano and his staff are excellent. After 3 yrs of bad back pain and deciding to change Doctor, I was referred to Dr. Romano and he knew what the problem with my back was and sent me to therapy to correct it. Now I have almost no pain and wish I could have found him 3 yrs ago. His whole department has my thumbs up. Keep up the good work.

Follow up on July 2021 left shoulder surgery
Dr. Romano did some strength tests and asked how I felt. I told him I never had any pain in the left shoulder since the surgery. Told him I appreciated his physical therpists and the therapy they gave me. All my appointments have been very pleasant .

Very efficient operation. Dr. Ramano always looks so professional which makes you feel confident. I have recommended friends to him. I know he did a knee surgery on one of them. I appreciate the fact that he finds various solutions to a problem and knows that surgery is not always the answer, only if you there is no other alternative.

I was so impressed with ALL of the staff at the office. Everyone was kind, helpful, and informative. What I liked best about Dr. Romano was he thinks outside of the box. He looks beyond the orthopedic issue and looks at the body as a whole.

Dr. Romano did a great job with my actual surgery and he is kind and attentive during appointments. If Dr.Romano had a better support staff he would totally earn a 5-star review. Unfortunately, I had a lot of bad experiences with his office in general. For example, I was once trying to schedule an appointment with a front agent and she was staring at her apple watch going through her texts for our entire conversation. There was an overall lack of communication between the office and myself- they were not transparent with scheduling, didn't give me clear pre, and post-op instructions, and they did not give my physical therapist any information for rehab.
