Dr. Petruccelli was great. His bedside manner was delightful and he was extremely knowledgeable. The wait time was an hourand 30 minutes- which was not good. However, because Dr. Petruccelli was great, I’d definitely recommend.

Really great appointment! He obviously knew what he was talking about, was extremely friendly, and answered all questions(even the stupid ones) so I was able to leave knowing exactly what happened and what I can and cannot do during recovery.

Great experience. Dr Petruccelli was nice and thorough. Nurses and office staff were excellent. They were able to take me on short notice (same day appointment). My only quibble is that the ZocDoc patient forms do not transfer to their office computer system, so I had to fill out all the forms all over again in the office. But it's all done electronically on an iPad, so no big deal I guess.

There was a mix up in appts, but I was in pain so Dr. Petrucelli worked me in, which I really appreciated. He's an excellent communicator and inspires confidence as a care provider. He's my ortho go-to from now on.

I was definitely nervous about this meeting and the staff and Dr. Petruccelli did a great job to make me feel informed and discuss with me the cause of my pain and his belief of the issue. I was sent for an Arthrogram MRI and although it was a wait to get to see the doctor everything else made the wait worth it look forward to working with him until I am healthy again. He knew a lot about shoulders and could tell a lot about my issue from some simple tests. Definitely recommend him for shoulder injuries.
