Dr. Vitello was incredibly diligent throughout my injury. From the onset of my scaphoid fracture he took every precaution to make sure that the treatment was right for me. He makes you feel like he leaves no stone unturned to make sure every decision he makes is the right and conservative one, without leaving the patient out of the loop. Dr. Vitello's staff was the best - super friendly and helpful in dealing with a stressful/frustrating injury. I highly recommend Dr. Vitell!

His staff was very friendly and nice to me each time I had to go there. Dr Vitello was not always the same. My first visit with him was not pleasant at all and he didn't seem to care much about me and my injury. With all the visits I had with his office, he was in and out of my room so fast I couldn't even think of what questions I wanted to ask. His response to everything I was able to ask felt like I was wasting his time and his answer was a dismissive "you broke it." The facility looked nice.

Dr Vitello doesn't listen and shows complete disrespect for the patient's experience. If he had listened 2 weeks ago, I would not have had to spend a few hours in the emergency room tonight to resolve a situation that he could have easily dealt with when I first saw him. Instead he blew me off and took a wait and see attitude. I do not recommend him, and as for myself, have transferred my care to another physician.
Unfriendly & unwelcoming. Did not have my best interests in mind.
