Professional Statement

Dr. Sciaroni joined The Orthopaedic Group of San Francisco, Inc. in 2003 after completing a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the Lake Tahoe Orthopaedic Institute. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Santa Cruz and her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. She completed her residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Sciaroni concentrates her practice in sports medicine and general orthopaedic surgery, with particular focus on surgery and rehabilitation of the shoulder and knee. She is Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery. She serves as a team physician for Skyline College and is affiliated with the St. Francis Center for Sports Medicine. She holds memberships in the San Francisco Medical Society, Western Orthopaedic Association, California Orthopaedic Association, California Medical Association, Bay Area Knee Society, and The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. A message from Dr. Sciaroni: My primary goal with every patient is to get them back to their pre-injury condition as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible. Fortunately, the science and technology applied in orthopedics has advanced significantly in the last decade and I make it a top priority to keep pace with that progress when it can benefit my patients. In combination with judicious use of medications, physical therapy and patient education, the opportunity to achieve a positive outcome for my patients is now higher than ever. To ensure this, our office provides every patient with excellent resources for understanding how they can take an active role in their recovery to get the best possible result.

Dr. Sciaroni was fantastic! She spent a good deal of time listening to the history of my injuries & doing physical tests on my knees / hips. She gave an in depth assessment and recommended physical therapy instead of trying to take me into surgery right away, which I've dealt with with other doctors.

Dr. Sciaroni has guided me through all kinds of sports injuries over the years - elbow, calf, shoulder, ankle, and lower back. I'm currently pregnant and really grateful to have her in my corner as I work through an unfortunately timed back injury. She always sees me on time (or even early) and I dig that she's an athlete herself! Choice of SF or Daly City office locations is also pretty convenient.

Wow! Dr. Sciaroni just.. rocks. I came in with what I thought was a broken finger, she took one look, diagnosed it, double checked with a quick x-ray, answered all my questions, made me feel better about my finger (and life) and I was outta there in 10 minutes. Rockstar status!

Fantastic doctor and extremely helpful staff. Dr. Sciaroni is extremely pleasant and explained my diagnosis in extremely easy-to-understand terms (she even drew a diagram). When my I was having trouble finding a brace provider within my network, Dr. Sciaroni's team got on the phone with my insurance and providers within the area and were able to find one on my behalf. I highly recommend Dr. Sciaroni!

Dr. Sciaroni was excellent. I'd recommend her to friends. I'd also offer a word of caution about the office staff. Make sure to insist on paper copies before leaving because they lose paperwork. Upon checkout, Dr. Sciaroni told the office assistant that I needed an MRI urgently and to make sure the order was sent in immediately. They sent me to get blood tests and told me they would call within an hour with the MRI order (required for MRI facilities). They never called. Over the next two days, I called several times. Each time they told me they would call me back within an hour and never did. Finally I trekked back to the office (on crutches) and was able to get the MRI order in person. The staff member admitted they had "lost it" and acknowledged they have serious problems with returning calls.

Dr. Laura Sciaroni is awesome! Great bedside manner, very comprehensive overview of what was going on with my body and why. Recommended Physical Therapists nearby and offered an introduction so I could get in right away. Highly recommend her! Unfortunately the receptionists at the front desk for the practice are a hot mess. At first they couldn't find my appointment, then they couldn't locate my chart information (which was submitted through Zocdoc). They seemed to be running around frantically the entire time. Finally after waiting 40 minutes, I asked when I would see the doctor. My appointment was at 10AM and they informed me the appointment was 11AM (after I had told them it was 10AM upon checking in). After I showed them the confirmation email from Zocdoc, they had me see the doctor right away and blamed the situation on the computer system: "it's hard to tell what time the appointment is, 10AM looks like 11AM." The issue was clearly a lack of communication and proper adherence to check-in procedures for the front desk, so it seemed unsavory to blame it on the computer system.
