This doctor is extremely personable and takes time to spend with her patients, in spite of a full waiting room. She is well worth the wait! The office is chaotic, as so many MD's offices these days. She is extremely knowledgeable, very competent, highly recommended! I feel very fortunate that she is in my network!!
I went to Dr. Compito for pain in my left shoulder. I previously had similar pain in my right arm about a year and a half before this visit and was treated for a frozen by a different doctor at the same facility. She saw in my chart that I had been diagnosed with Disc Disease. She insisted that because I still had good range of motion it was not a problem with my shoulder but was caused by my disc disease and a spinal problem. She said there was nothing she could do and sent me back to my primary doctor with a note stating I needed to see a spinal specialist. Now months later that I have almost no range of motion and an MRI by another doctor at the same facility I have been told my left shoulder is frozen with extreme scar tissue build up. The worst case senario is I may need surgery if PT isn't helpful. I can't sleep or even pull up my pants due to severe pain. I have to have physical therapy 3times a week and my husband had to quit his job to help talk care of our 3 children 2 who have special needs. All this after only 3 months since seeing Dr. Compito who if she gave me atleast a MRI when I saw her could have saved me months of pain and suffering cause it would have been caught in time to prevent this much damage and pain. Save yourself the agony and do not see Dr. Catherine Compito.
