Very good doctor and staff

Dr. Cordasco was straightforward, informative, attentive and professional. His manner inspires great confidence. He was clear about the benefits of surgery and did not promise more than was realistic. He reviewed my xrays and intra-operative photos with me in detail. I felt extremely well cared for both before and after the surgery. I would happily recommend him.

Excellent experience. I broke my collarbone in a cycling injury on a Saturday morning. I called his office Monday morning, he saw me that day, operated the next day. He was clear, direct, supportive, friendly. He is not touchy-feely but you will be treated well and there is just no doubt about his skill. Be prepared with your questions. He will answer every one of them but when he's done that, he's outta there. His staff is awesome. The results were even better than I expected.

Arrogant, sarcastic, intense, uptight, smart, and very knowledgeable, I think those words best describe Dr. Cordasco on the day of my only visit. He does have a wonderful and caring staff. And he clearly is on the cutting edge. Unfortunately, his talent may have gone to his head and as a result his effectiveness suffers. I had been too many of the top orthopedists in the city including Dr. Altchek. None of them take my insurance, so I figured I would do some internet research to find another competent doctor and save myself $500 for a minor issue. I read many glowing reviews on Dr. Cordasco, was impressed by his research and awards, and so knew he was very competent. And he took my insurance. He conducted 5-8 minutes of initial discovery , which was very thorough and I was impressed Then he asked me where I found him, and I told him "the world wide web". The appointment went downhill after that moment. Not sure if he was offended I did not get a referral, or just figured he did not have to worry because I would not report back a bad experience. The whole experience was kinda strange. Anyway, he became sarcastic, impatient, and very rigid after that point. He recommended that I do an arthroscopic procedure that same day. When I wanted to think about it, he became evidently frustrated. And the appointment just awkwardly ended not long after. I spoke to another doctor after his recommendation who thought his recommendation of the procedure was premature as conservative options should be tried first. Perhaps, I just got him on a bad day. But he seemed stressed, very rigid, inflexible, and recommended a procedure prematurely. If you are looking for a smart, knowledgeable doctor who wants you to do whatever he says, then I think Dr. Cordasco is perfect for you. If you want a doctor who is empathic, and really wants to work with you then he is a poor choice.

My son ruptured his ACL. We found Dr. Cordasco to be extremely professional and courteous. His staff was very helpful also. The procedure was explained well and treatment was exceptional. We felt we were in the hands of a cutting edge doctor.
