Rushed through appt. Showed no concern over symptoms.
I appreciate attention given also to my husbands concerns & my daughter. Thanks for your kindness & skill!
The single element in this visit that gave me pause was that some of the terms the doctor used were above my head--proper medical terms, I'm sure, but still not in my vocabulary. Fortunately, the doctor was very patient with me, so I was able to learn what I needed to know.
Dr. Rotolo has operated on two people I know. They think he is an excellent doctor. I will certainly recommend him.
Provide has operated on me in past years - I have great confidence in him.
Provider came highly recommended but because we are out of state at this time having the infection set in has made the experience much more challenging than expected.we would probably not recommend him to others at this time.
Dr. Rotolo did an excellent job. He was knowledgeable, courteous, attentive and kind. I would recommend him highly.
Very honest.
Dr. Rotolo was very knowledgeable and also had a great bed-side manor. He explained everything completely and I felt very comfortable knowing that he was going to be the one performing surgery. I was also very happy at his long experience in the field.
Good experience.
The doctor (Dr. Rotolo) came highly recommended. He was patient & kind and very knowledgeable. He made the experience a good one, in spite of a potential problem I was facing.
Dr. Rotolo is very competent and knows his stuff. He is courteous and kind.
Dr. Rotolo and his receptionist [...] are outstanding. I always felt like they were sympathetic to my concerns/needs. The quickly made appointments on my behalf and always followed up. I felt like my care was personable to me and I wasn't treated like just another patient.
"Worth the drive" & traffic.
Wonderful surgeon!
Everything was great.
Dr. Rotolo showed me scans, instructed me in the anatomy and the reason for my problem, all in a very understandable manner. [...] I was favorably impressed with Dr. Rotolo.
Dr Rotolo ranks high on my list. He practically thinks for you so your questions are answered before having to ask. I am the exception, however, and always have another question and he is patient and answers.
I found Dr. Rotollo to be very personable and interested in my health issue. He took extra time to share my x-ray images and be sure I understood what he was showing us (both my husband and myself).
Trust this provider completely.
