I have been seeing Dr. Palumbo since 2017.  Thankfully, it's not very often because if I have to see him it's because I'm hurt. That is the ONLY reason I don't like to see him. A month ago I had to go back in; a badly broken arm.  I ended up needing surgery even though I tried to talk Dr. P out of it.  However, I trust him and knew if he was saying it was needed, it was.  I had never been under general anesthesia before and was really scared.  He was so kind when he spoke to me before the surgery. I'm on the road to recovery now and I know this was the right course of treatment.  I have to give a shout out to his PA, Danielle, too.  Thank you for all your kind and compassionate care. The entire experience at The Orthopedic Sports Clinic is excellent.  Props to Carissa as well.  From the minute you walk in to the time you check out, the encounter is as pleasant as can be. Thanks to all of you !!!!
