Distinguished and Comprehensive Surgeon and Healer

Having interacted with more surgeons than I care to admit over 65+ years of age, I have to readily state that Dr. Petrigliano is the finest I have encountered. He shows a remarkable skill in developing patient trust, and confidence, and his reputation convinces you that there is no one finer in his specialty/sub-specialty. It was deeply appreciated that he telephoned personally to check on my progress post-surgery and for a busy practitioner it impressed me tremendously.

Great experience from beginning to end.

Simply put, my experience with Dr. Petrigliano and UCLA Orthopaedic was outstanding. I felt cared for from the moment I checked in. As instructed, I arrived 30 minutes prior to my appointment for paperwork and x-rays. I was checked in immediately, given a buzzer and waited all of about 5 minutes before radiology was ready for me. When I went to radiology (conveniently across the hall) I sat for about 2 minutes before the radiologist came to take me back. A few x-rays later, I was done and back in the main waiting room. Again I waited maybe 5 minutes, and to my pleasant surprise, I was brought back to an exam room around the actual time of my appointment. Once in the exam room, a nurse went over the basics of my condition. Just a few minutes later, an intern was in and did a full exam. I am a big proponent of teaching hospitals so I was quite happy to have this initial exam. Once she was done and left, I waited only about 5 minutes for Dr. Petrigliano. He did his own full exam, talked to me about my condition, listened intently to me describe my symptoms, and went over my x-rays with me. He then gave me my diagnosis, some instructions, and a prescription for PT. Dr. Petrigliano is an outstanding orthopedic surgeon who specializes in shoulders, so for him not to recommend surgery gave me all the more confidence in his diagnosis and prognosis. I was out of the office about an hour after I arrived—because of the overall efficiency of the whole operation. And through it all, every person I dealt with was kind, attentive, and seemed genuinely happy to be there. These things unfortunately can’t be taken for granted in today’s medical system, but they seem to be part of the culture at this office. I highly recommend Dr. Petrigliano to anyone who needs an orthopedic specialist.

Caring Doctor

Dr. P. is a very kind individual and talented surgeon. He gave me his cell phone number and was always easy to get in touch with. My surgery went very well, and the recovery was uneventful. I'm back to playing tennis 3x a week!

Dr P has not enough experience with QSS and should not be diagnosing a condition he has not seen since school. Three doctors have diagnosed me with QSS and my symptoms fit the syndrome. If I had known Dr P had no experience with QSS I would not have gone to UCLA, very disappointed waste of my time
