    I have been a long time patient of Dr Luchetti's. I was not able to see him for 5 years due to an insurance issue. When going back to see him a couple months ago he quickly diagnosed me and quickly scheduled me for a TKR. He is the only doctor I trust with my knees. He is such a caring doctor and he puts his patients first.
