Our Patients

Dr.  Zaino is professional, knowledgeable, talented and skilled. Overall an amazing doctor. I have no complaints about the care my son received from Dr. Zaino and his staff. I found him informative, professional and overall very much a patient advocate. The care my son received from beginning to end is five star! The results of the operation were better than we expected. His mobility is back, no pain and full range of motion.  I would refer him and his staff to anyone for their orthopedic needs! We couldn’t be happier! Thank you Dr. Zanio and staff.
