Arrogant, dismissive, does not listen, cares about what he can bill for - not what is best for the pt. There are procedures he does not do, so he insists you have one he DOES do. Iffy charachter. And, he is simply a mediocre surgeon. There are plently other's - choose one of them.

Get a second opinion if you have ANY doubts!!

Dr Dichristina was incomplete in his diagnosis of my shoulder, he insisted I had only bone spurs, however I also had a S.L.A.P. Year to my rotator cuff. He was not timely in the follow up after the MRI, CAT scan, the calls were over 7 days after the tests were completed. Dr. Dichristina was also animate about doing open shoulder surgery, and when questioned why not arthroscopic he insisted it would not work, but with no clear explanation why open was the correct course. After looking in to the open surgery, I discovered that there is greater risk (of infection) more pain and a much longer recovery period ~6 months. I received a second opinion and had the bone spurs and the SLAP tear repaired/anchored and am now pain free.
