The Best!!

Dr. Ciminiello did a double knee replacement for me and it was a great experience. After finally making the decision to take care of my both knees, I went to several different Doctors to make my decision as to who I wanted to replace them. Dr. Ciminiello was by far the best decision I have ever made to do the operation. I knew right when I met him. He came highly recommended by family members. He has wonderful bedside manor, He put me at ease (because I was so nervous about being under) . The office staff and the pre surgical class help me understand the procedure and what to expect. I liked that Dr. Ciminiello told me exactly what to expect so there was "no rock unturned." I would highly recommend him!! It has been close to 8 months and I am doing so much better and my quality of life has improved 100% As my husband told me, "why go through agony everyday!" I don't anymore! (The office wait maybe long at times but it is definitely worth it because of the personalized attention each patient gets.)

R tha 2015

pre surgical and surgery went fine, after care was an issue. While I continued to have pain well after hip replacement, (over a year and a half) Dr. Ciminiello never fully addressed what was wrong. I now face a a revision of my hip replacement because the prosthetic is loose. My life has changed terribly since I had this surgery. I should have stayed with my first surgeon.

Dr. Ciminiello' s warm and caring personality helped to make this frightening and painful experience tolerable. Friendly and competent staff guide you throughout the process.

Such a popular guy it's harder to get an appointment or schedule surgery.

Awesome Doctor - person

Dr. Ciminello has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever met. I went to see him about a right hip replacement surgery after I had complications from my left hip replacement surgery. He took his time & explained everything to me & my wife. I felt so comfortable with him doing my surgery I scheduled my surgery that day. He was very calming the day of surgery even though my wife & I were VERY nervous after what I had been through with my other surgery with a different surgeon. After surgery he went done to the waiting room himself, sat down & explained everything that went on to my wife. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Ciminello. I have never heard a negative word about him from any patients, doctors or even medical staff at the hospital

Satisfied totally

I had my right knee totally replaced. An X-ray was taken and after Dr. Ciminiello's consultation of treatment, I made the decision to stop procrastinating and get back to feeling better. Dr. Mike had a wonderful reassuring attitude and the operation was textbook successful. I couldn't be happier. He and all the staff at PBMC were fantastic from the joint center through the hospital and rehab.
