Dr. Patti is fantastic. She took the time to answer all my questions and left me feeling confident the procedure would be a success. And it was. Thanks to her skill and care, I'm well on the way to a full recovery.

They are a top knowledge facility and care about their patients and their care. They always had me in on time even when I decide to go there as a walk-in. I arrived before they also started seeing patients. They got me back before they officially opened and had me diagnosed and scheduled for surgery the very next day. They set the bar high for any other doctors office or Medical practice — nothing wrong to say about this establishment.

Dr. Patti was thorough, took time to listen, explained my issues well. I am an RN and I liked that she treated me like a patient, not a nurse. Dr. Patti made good use of my time, completed my paperwork while I was in the office. She is a fantastic doctor. Can't wait to see her again!

I find Dr. Patti to be exceptional. I have had multiple surgeries but have never met a surgeon who is willing to spend so much time with a patient. She answers every question and encourages you to reach out if you need anything. I would recommend Dr. Patti, and her staff, to anyone who has bone and joint issues.
