Patient Reviews

“I can not say enough about Dr. Guzzo. I had a bad experience years ago and didn’t trust doctors anymore. If I could give Dr. Guzzo more than five stars, I would. My only complaint is, I wish he could be my Dr. for everything. I tell everyone about him. Compassion is a lost art, but Dr. Guzzo is the best. His staff is excellent too.”

“I’m incredibly impressed with Dr. Guzzo and his staff! I saw two other doctors for my torn rotator cuff, slap tear, and bicep tear. I’m so thankful that I chose Dr. Guzzo to do my surgery. From start to finish, they have gone above the norm to make sure that everything was successful. I have already highly recommended him to others.”

“Doctor Guzzo was very patient and kind. He spent a lot of time explaining everything to me and made sure that I understood what he was saying. He answered all of my questions. I did not feel rushed in any way. I would highly recommend Dr. Guzzo. He’s the first doctor in a very long time I think cares about his patients.”

“I have metastatic breast cancer that had gone to my bones causing lesions. Dr. Guzzo was the surgeon that was willing to do surgery on my leg when my first femur broke. He not only took an interest in the operation but also in my overall health as I went through my journey from having stage IV breast cancer to not having any active cancer cells. Today was the first time that I have been able to walk into his office for my follow up appointment after a year of rehab where I learned to walk again after having both of my femurs break. I am thankful to Dr. Guzzo not only for taking the chance on me when he performed the surgery but for giving me the ability to walk again so I can lead a normal life. Thank you.”
