Biggest mistake of my life
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael W Panio - Posted on October 21st, 2013
I wish I had read these reviews before I trusted Dr Panio with my broken ankle and let him operate on me. Most condescending doctor I've ever met. I got suspicious when at one of my post-surgery visits he seemed to brush off my concerns and rush out of the room. I switched to a new doctor and learned the break hadn't healed properly and turns out I needed significantly more hardware to put my ankle back together than Dr. Panio used. I felt like I was essentially butchered by Dr Panio. Barbaric and uncaring about sums it up.

This doctor was abusive to me. I was already depressed after my illness and he pushed me to the point of having very negative thoughts. I had a support system in place and a small amount of money to get by. Had I been alone, I am not sure how I would have coped. I dreaded every follow up appointment but I felt that I had to go. Then I noticed his hand tremor. I worried about my surgery after that. Even if he is a good surgeon, he made me feel worthless, depressed and scared about my recovery. I have never felt worse in my life. Does he have Asperger's?
Worst Doctor ever!!

Michael Panio was the worst doctor I have ever met in my life! He doesn't care about the patient at all .I got an infection he took out the new hardware and put in a spacer and left them in and then he washed his hands of me. He told me to get a another surgeon. He was negligent, obnoxious, and rude.
Bulging Disc and Degenerative Disc Patient
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael W Panio - Posted on February 24th, 2012
Not only was Dr. Panio Uncaring and unprofessional, he was probably the worst doctor I have ever seen in my life. Did not care at all about my back pain and was very rude. There was an old women in the room next room that i overheard complaining of severe pain and he gave her the same schtick he gave me. Go to physical therapy and you'll be fine he tells her. Only problem is he won't even try to figure out what is wrong with you. Avoid this doctor at all costs. He will not help you at all, and you will leave his office feeling like a piece of garbage. Only positive is that it is very easy to get an appointment with this guy....I wonder why? Don't waste your time with this doctor you will definitely regret your visit.

Dr. Panio is the worst doctor i have ever been to. I have herniated disc and pain associated with it. I was waiting for him 45 minutes talking with nurse about my problems, then he showed up and said milions of people live with herniated disc so you will be fine.He gave me No prescription for pain, No MRI appointment. He was so full of himself, I felt like horrible, I felt like nobody after visiting him.If you have a choice DO NOT GO to Dr. Panio. Waste of your time and insurance money. Even if their website says that they are the top orthopedic Doctors in New York State: Believe me that's a lie.
BEDSIDE MANNER OF AN OBNOXIOUS ICE CUBE
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael W Panio - Posted on September 30th, 2011
My visit was spent with Dr. Panio doing all the talking -- he never asked me for an explanation of my problems -- then, finally, when he did ask me a question and I attempted to answer it, he barked "Don't answer that". Also, told me that not to take it personally, but that after my visit, he would not remember me. I was extremely disappointed and will not return to that practice again. He appeared to be bored with the whole visit.
Extremely Poor Bedside Manner - Avoid!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael W Panio - Posted on August 15th, 2011
The staff was very courteous and I had no trouble getting an appointment with Dr. Panio. He recommended that I get physical therapy, but felt it necessary to tell me that he didn't care if I did get PT nor would he follow up to find out if I did. He also asked if I "went shopping" after asking if I worked out. Maybe Dr. Panio is just tired of his job, but that's no excuse for his lack of professionalism.
Incompetent doctor, rude staff
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael W Panio - Posted on April 5th, 2011
Do not see this doctor if you are experiencing an orthopedic problem. He is generally incompetent, overlooking obvious signs symptoms, and does not listen to the patient. Office staff are incredibly rude and short.

Had partical knee replacement with Panio, and knee still hurt 1 year later, he could not find out way. Had a Bakers cyst that he always totally ignored. (I still have it 2-1/2 yrs! He told me one thing then denied it -- Stopped going and will never reccommend him.
