Great doctor. Good listener. Explains things clearly. I had an arthroscopic partial meniscetomy. The procedure went really well. I had very little post op pain.

Dr. Colizza spent a great deal of time with me explaining the rotator cuff tear repair surgery that I will have to have. Very professional - liked him very much. Had to wait 45 minutes past my scheduled appointment but understand its because he spends time with his patients - they aren't just a number.
in Dover, NJ |
Terrible doctor. Spent maybe a minute with me, moved my arms a few directions, shouted angrily there is nothing wrong with me, angrily demanded to know why was I there. I asked for pt for shoulder injury and he was very upset saying he could not do that as he had no diagnosis. Next doc said immediately that I had strain and ordered PT. Head of rehab facility then diagnosed impingement and tendonitis when symptoms increased. AVOID COLIZZA.
