My particular interests lie in Sports Medicine, particularly dance and running medicine, as well as Pediatric Rehabilitation. I am board certified in both these specialties.I have a strong interest in nutrition and natural supplements as a way to heal the body and integrate these in my treatments.

My visit with Dr. Sambataro was great. She was very pleasant, extremely attentive and patient. Her front desk staff members were also very pleasant, efficient and professional. Dr. Sambataro answered all of my questions thoroughly, thoroughly examined my knee and provided me with new insights into how I can heal my knee. Dr. Sambataro, seems very knowledgeable and eased my concerns, as I feared my knee discomfort was an indication of something more serious. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Sambataro to others.

Simonetta was very kind and understanding. She really indentured my hip and knee issues and provided solutions for both the short- and long-term. I'll be going back in a couple months to check my progress - I highly recommend her.

Pros: Very short waiting time, convenient office location, and usually easy to schedule an appointment. Cons: When ordered for a scan that required pre-authorization, the entire process was messy and delayed. I wound up calling my insurance company myself everyday for over a week and then relaying to the office what information was still missing in order to obtain the authorization. Very stressful and disorganized experience that I had never encountered before.

Went in for runner's knee. She was thorough and genuinely interested in understanding my problem; asked questions, listened, and wasn't rushed. I left with a better understanding of my injury and a plan. She seemed to have experience working with runners.

Dr. Sambataro did an excellent job at trying to figure out what my knee issue is and how it can best be fixed. She asked specific questions and observed my movement and standing. She offered specific instructions for next steps, as well as helpful handouts for what exercises I should do. She ably answered all my questions.

I went on my lunch break and was in and out for the most part. The doctor shares her office with another practice, which was busy so it took a little bit longer to get checked in, but the doctor was available right away. She was very pleasant, professional and seemed to listen. I would definitely go back. She recommended a course of strengthening exercises and hopefully that will work!

Dr. Sambataro was very easy to talk to, clear in her explanations, and thorough in her examination. I have a sports injury that has been affecting me for several years and I've gone to quite a few doctors for it. She is one of the best I've had so far. I really appreciate her style of less-invasive treatments. When I went to an orthopedist a few years ago for the same problem, he not only got my diagnosis wrong and spent just 3 minutes examining me, but he also suggested much more invasive imaging and treatment. Dr. Sambataro simply wants to see you heal in safe and noninvasive ways. I'm glad I went to her.

Dr. Sambataro was professional and friendly, she was thorough in her exam, I felt cared for. She prescribed a combination of PT and natural anti-inflamitories. The receptionist is wonderful... the waiting room is like sitting in your aunt's house, chatting with the fam., waiting for dinner to be served.

It's great that we can schedule appointments online and pre-fill the documents on ZocDoc before hand. Unlike most doctors, who are still in the pre-computer era with all that paperwork, Simonetta is a modern doctor!
