His bedside manner is outstanding. He answered all my questions ensuring I had a strong understanding of my condition and the next steps. Once my MRI was completed, Dr. Cucchetti explained the treatment plan and diagnosis in detail. My onlyissue is that the initial MRI took longer than expected to get approved.

Dr. Cucchetti was recommended by a friend who is also a nurse that has worked with him. I saw him for hip pain that had been getting worse for over a year even with PT. Scheduling an appointment was quick andeasy, I was seen within three days of calling. Although I may have waited a bit in the waiting room to see him, I didn't mind at all because when he is in the room with his patients, he acts like there is no where else in the world he has to be. He sat and listened to everything I had to say, discussed everything with me, and was very patient. He ordered an X-ray before my first appointment and ordered an MRI to be done after I saw him. I needed hip surgery, which I had 8/9. Obviously it had been a painful day, but Dr. Cucchetti called me Wednesday night after my surgery to check on me and answer any questions. I can't say enough great things about him, and have absolutely nothing negative to say about him. Dr. Cucchetti and his staff are all amazing!

Dr. Cucchetti is amazing. He fixed my ankle 4 years ago and I haven't had anymore problems with it. This was after years of issues including a prior surgery with a different doctor. When my daughter hurt her ankle I didn'tthink twice. I called and made an appointment with Dr Cucchetti. As always he pinpointed the issue right away and made a plan. We love him and I wouldn't trust anyone else!

I THINK DR. CUCCHETTI IS THE BEST DOCTOR IN HIS FIELD. THE ONLY THINK THAT SURPRISED ME WAS WHEN I MADE A PHONE CALL TODAY (5/22/17) AND ASKED FOR A REFILL ON MY PAIN PILLS UNTIL MY SURGERY THIS FRIDAY (5/26/17)HIS GIRL SAID THAT I COULD NOT GET A REFILL UNTIL 5/25/17 THE DAY BEFORE THE SURGERY. DR. CUCCHETTI GAVE ME A PRESCRIPTION ON 5/2/17 OF 45 PILLS OF WHICH I ONLY TOOK 2 A DAY A NIGHT TIME BEFORE I WENT TO BED. I HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY BECAUSE I DAMAGED THE FIRST SURGERY AND I AM IN TERRIBLE PAIN AND I NOW HAVE T NO PILLS TO HELP THE PAIN. I DON'T FEEL THAT I HAVE ABUSED THE USE OF THESE PILLS BUT I CERTAINLY NEEDED MORE TO GET ME THROUGH UNTIL THE SURGERY. I AM SURE THAT HE HAS A GOOD REASON FOR DOING THIS BUT WHEN I ASKED HIS GIRL WHY I HAD TO WAIT UNTIL THE SURGERY SHE SAID THAT THIS WAS WHAT HE SAID. I AM JUST WONDERING AS TO THE REASON HE MADE THIS DECISION. IT STILL DOES NOT CHANGE MY FEELING THAT HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR IN HIS FIELD I WAS JUST CURIOUS AS TO HIS DECISION.

The doctor is a very personal person who also was extremely good at what he does. Which is of course most important. But I felt very well taken care of and I felt that they had a lot of empathy andheart for my particular situation. That's something that you don't find in the many doctors offices today
