Great doctor but availability is 2nd class. Scheduling is terrible and staff is rude.

Yes and maybe?

Saw Dr.Pettrone after a jogging incident. He's nice and friendly, but I just was left so thirsty for a clear solution. Just felt I wasted time with the appointment - no clear direction regarding my torn meniscus. Just if you want, we can have surgery, if you don't maybe you can live with the pain?! The indifference is frustrating.

One Star

Went in for an opinion on my ACL which had been feeling weird after I had torn it and had surgery on with a different Dr. He recommended another surgery to replace the ACL with cadaver. My knee feels worst than before, I have a huge, crooked and horrible scar. Also when he stitched up the cut he overlapped the skin. I would not recommend Dr Pettrone, worst decision I ever made to go to him! There are a lot of good ortho surgeons around. Do your homework and read their reviews (something I failed to do).

Five Stars

I've seen dr Petrine for several knee surgeries. He's always been very thorough and explained the issues and risks in every procedure. I can't recommend him more highly. My ACL reconstruction and bunyonectomy (yes, he does toes too!) were hugely successful
