in Caldwell, NJ |
Dr. Matarese is such a wonderful and very professional doctor. I really appreciate that he took the time to explain all the issues and answer my questions, such a great and positive experience.
in North Haledon nj |
He actually took the time to slowly explain issues and took time to answer any questions, and he spoke in simple non medical terms.!
New Providence, NJ |
Dr Matarese has been wonderful through my whole treatment process. He takes the time to fully explain my options, andis fully transparent about risks and success rates. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Wayne, NJ |
I had a total knee replacement. I had the utmost confidence in him. When the time comes to have my other knee done, it will be with Dr. Matarese.
Clifton, NJ |
The only reason he didn't get 5 stars from me is because I want to do a little more research but so far his professionalism and individualization of his patients make him stand out and he treats not only the problem with care and concern but also the PATIENT. He explains things so that I , someone who is not a doctor, can understand and encourages questions so that everyone is one the same page.
in Clifton, NJ |
He explain my situation very clear, all question was well answer, and I have to follow next step to resolve my problem, with next visit and instructions as well.
in Little Falls, NJ |
Dr. Matarese has been exceptional with my care. I will only see him for my orthopedic needs which unfortunately I have had more than I would have imagined. I have recommended him to friends and family.
New York, NY |
Dr Matarese performed double knee replacement on my mom. At 86 ,she is still going strong considering the surgery was over 20 years ago!!!!!!!!!!! I would highly recommend the excellence of Dr Matarese for all your orthopedic needs.

Doctor Matarese is the best in his field , I would recommend him to anyone who needs knee or shoulder even hip replacements . His staff and everyone in his office are very professional . The other doctor Dr Patrizia . Terri is also someone I would recommend to family or friends .
Worse experience of my life at a doctor's office. 2 hour wait time, barely examined me, and missed a diagnosis.

I Had a knee replace surgery Dr. Matarese is the best . every one see the surgery agreed that he did a very good Job. also when I go visit his office his staff is all professional especial Dr. Patrizia she is one of the best .
in Clifton, NJ |
I recommend Dr. Matarese to anybody. He is an excellent surgeon. I was up and walking the day after surgery with very little pain. I was walking without any assistance within two weeks. He explained everything clearly and answered all of my questions thoroughly. His office staff is very helpful when I call and they act very professional during my office visits.
in West Milford, NJ |
The WORSE experiences I ever had! I went to him with knee pain6 on (1-10) and left with pain 9+!He came in w/2 females. One his assistant that took notes on the computer and the other was a student. I sat on the table with my knees hanging over. When he came close(I thought to exam me)he bent down and DISLOCATED my knee then said"that should have HURT"!Then he gave the student instructions on how to dislocate it again. He never should have hurt me twice just for a teaching lesson! He is crazy!!!

I had a hip replacement done by Dr Matarese and was totally satisfied. I was able to walk after one day. I was without pain and walking unassisted after four days. I never had any pain and highly recommend Dr. Matarese.
in Hardwick, NJ |
A day does not go by without me experiencing profound gratitude toward Dr. Matarese and his staff. They are both personable and professional. After years of suffering and being hardly able to walk, Dr. Matarese replaced both of my hips. I have been pain free now for over 3 years and I am experiencing life like never before. I even won a dance contest!!!!
