Very nice front desk staff, wait time was short. I did not have to wait long in the room for the Doctor. I was there for my right shoulder, he was very thorough and found issues the MRI did not. We shall see what happens next.

Dr. Sacco has done multiple treatments for "locking" finger joints over several years. His technique is extremely skilled and makes an uncomfortable process quite tolerable. I highly recommend Dr. Sacco for his specialty.

This was my first shoulder surgery. Dr.Sacco explained to me how the surgery will be performed. Shoulder replacement surgery went well. Yesterday was the third week. Will see him a week from now so I can arrange for physical therapy. I would definitely recommend him.
