Complete tear of supraspinatus tendon: Dr. Christo was recommended by a very serious gym I was going to - that works with many local college athletes. Second hand reports from other people both in and out of the health field had nothing but positive thoughts about the Dr. C. I personally saw 4 docs - the first one misdiagnosed completely. the 2nd - the doc from a local pro team was insulting, unhelpful, and his staff was incompetent. 3rd was from another pro team, egotistical, rushed ,and not particularly helpful but anyway couldn't guarantee that my insurance would still pay by the time he could do the surgery (10 weeks!). Then I saw Dr Christoforetti and was BLOWN AWAY by the level of patient care. I've only seen a tight health care team give this level of thorough care once before: at Cleveland Clinic (for a family member). Beginning with Barb the patient /office liason, to Beth - the best PA ever! (knowledgeable, caring, warm, but humble - she defers to Dr C regularly), to Dr. Christoforetti himself (very open, gives you as much time and info you could ask for. Personality: To me he seems like a VERY smart man who has worked very hard to be the best he can be. I did not find him egotistical, but rather - proud of his work. Maybe he does not come across as the warmest individual, if anything more clinical. He's an ortho guy after all, and a very, very good one.) He is extremely thorough and conservative in ALL regards from diagnosis, to preparing the patient mentally, pain control, surgical techniques/choices, follow up care, surgical site care, post op detailed instructions, PT protocol - every aspect from beginning until full recovery is thought through and controlled as well as he can. Everything is done so as to insure the best possible surgical outcome. I'm writing this 4 months post op, and mindful that my complete recovery is at least 12 months - my PT and I are both very happy with my outcome at this point. Dr. Christo is conservative in all regards, and that included starting PT - because studies show this to have the highest success rate on longer time lines. Typical of his choices for his patients! I believe he and his team truly care about their patients, and I can't say that about many doctors.
I was referred to Dr. Christoforetti by my regular Ortho Doc who was unable to treat my diagnosed L hip of FAI and Labral Tear. I received an apt two days after calling his office and the apt scheduler could not have been nicer, for being a brand new patient I was blown away at how quickly they accommodated me. Dr. Christoforetti and his staff were very nice and treated me with much respect. After some conservative treatment we are to be scheduling surgery shortly and I feel 100% confident with this decision and this surgeon, he explains everything to you down to every dotted I and crossed T. His office staff prepare all of your instructions and directions so you are not left wandering. I have read some reviews regarding his personality and what I can say to you is this, you may not get the hand patting you would from a smaller physicians practice, but what you will get is respect, trust and nothing but pure confidence in Dr. Christoforetti and likewise he needs to be able to trust you. I would recommend him to any friend and any family member.
Thanks for the kind review and I wish you the best in your recovery! It is not an easy task to please everyone considering the difficult problems our patients face, and our need to be honest to their safe options for solving them. We appreciate your trust!
