A very fine doctor.

I went to see Dr. James Deorio one time and corresponded with him via internet duke. He answered all my concerns concerning a foot operation gone bad by another Dr.Schreyack. I had a boot on when I went to see him as another Dr Parekh. told me I had a broken distal fibular shaft. Here I am faithfully wearing a boot, After taking x-rays and the study of them I was instructed to take the boot off as my distal fibular shaft was not broken.

Best Foot Surgeon

I have now had 2 foot surgeries with Dr. DeOrio. I had to get my right foot fused. He is such a caring and compensate doctor. I drove 2 1/2 hours to have him operate on me. His P.A. Stephanie is also great. I was concerned about my foot and I called their office and within a day I had an appointment in their office so they could evaluate it. I would highly recommend them!

I cannot praise Dr. JAMES DEORIO enough, it is because of him that I still have my right leg and foot. I was in a severe car accident where my right foot became detached from my leg and my ankle broke in a terrible way. After being told that it was impossible to "fix" by other orthopedic surgeons at other hospitals, that amputation was all I could consider, I found Dr. Deorio and he made the decision to try, something no one else was willing to do. The first surgery into unchartered waters turned into multiple very successful surgeries, he took his time and never gave up on me. This doctor is the master of masters without any doubt. Where my foot used to look deformed, it no longer does and I move with the ease I had prior to my injuries. We wondered if I would be able to walk more than just yards again and I'm proud to say that I walk miles, I hike mountains, do yoga and ride horses again. A situation thad looked so terrifying prior to meeting Dr. Deorio is something that is only a memory now. I will always be ever so grateful to this brilliant surgeon!

Dr. DeOrio made such a difference in the quality of my life. Not being able to walk or do things for myself was such an ordeal.
