The Best - just the best doctor for shoulders and knees
Self-verified patient of Dr. Raphael S Longobardi - Posted on September 21st, 2012
Dr. Longobardi has treated me for two injuries, both of which required surgery, and I am very pleased with every part of my treatment, from diagnosis, to surgery, to follow-up, his thoroughness and concern with achieveing the very best of possible outcomes has been stellar. My first surgery was for a very bad rotator cuff tear injury from work where the level of repair and mobility I now have is very good, and in fact compares very favorably to my non-repaired shoulder. The second surgery was for a torn meniscus injured in a dance class seven months ago , and again, the level of recovery I have had is better than I even hoped for, so good, in fact, that I just competed in a 15 mile bicycle tour and had a very good finishing time. In addition, I have referred others to his care who have also been very pleased with their results. I would highly, highly recommend him.
