Not impressed at all. Kept getting asked "why are you here, who referred you?" I have seen 3 other doctors in this practice for other issues and never been treated this way. Would not recommend him and will not go back to him.
The worst Dr i have ever been to. He just sat there and complained, wouldn't listen to anything I had to say and kept asking me what I wanted him to do for me. I finally just walked out. One of the most rude human beings I have ever come across in my life. And as far as I'm concerned a totally incompetent doctor. He only does knees which doesn't take the rest of the body into consideration that might be impacting the knees. Quake!
One of the worst doctors I've ever been to. If you don't know how to self-diagnose don't bother going to him.
Saw him back in August, he was very rude and misdiagnosed me. I have hip dysplasia, which he mentioned nothing about. Only going to another doctor, outside of Seaview, was I properly diagnosed. Also, he must have given PT the wrong orders, because they treated the hip that didn't hurt and never addressed my left knee issues. I found the whole process and this doctor (along with PT center) reaffirmed my thought that it's best to go into Manhattan when you want to be properly diagnosed.
This doctor was rude and misdiagnosed my hip dysplasia.
I have never been treated so poorly by a physician. I share this review because I hope that no other patient is put in the uncomfortable position I was today or leaves the office feeling how I felt. Frederick's behaviors made it clear that my visit was a great inconvenience to him. I had to excuse myself from the appointment and leave before ever being treated.
I have never been treated so poorly by a physician.
The day I saw Dr. DePaola for the 4th knee injection was very traumatic, I waited in the exam room for a half hour, When doctor came in, I said, in a"cutsie" tone, "I thought you might have forgotten me". He proceeded to YELL at me saying"you don't know what personal problems I have!" "And if you don't like waiting, find another doctor". He then shouted at me,"I went for bloodwork last week and had to wait an hour". Again, he yelled"if you don't like waiting, get another doctor". I am not exaggerating when I say, he was yelling at me!
Never in my life did I have a doctor yell at me numerous times. and not even examine me on my visit(2nd). I never went back.
Dr. DePaolo replaced my hip on January 23rd 2020. I chose him because he performed the Anterior procedure & from my research and someone I know who had it done this way I knew this is what I wanted. The operation took less than 2 hrs. I honestly don't know why there are a fèw negative comments on this site regarding this Surgeon because I found him very professional..he always listened to me & answered all my questions. The first 2 weeks were uncomfortable while healing and the in home Physical therapy was painful but now 6 weeks later I'm great...driving and doing everything I did before! I highly recommend Dr. DePaolo!
I have been a patient of Dr. DePaola’s for approximately three years. He is a terrific doctor , with a compassionate manner. I have received knee injections at several of his offices. He is always pleasant and sincere. He is not only extremely qualified and knowledgeable, but a caring individual as well.
I feel he was a very thoughtful and caring dr who did a very thorough exam and listened to me. I would highly recommend him and feel he is a very good dr. He went out of his way to get to the bottom of my complaint and figure out a plan of action that would work for me.
Awful. A very rude man that makes you feel like you are a bother to him. Agree with the others...he doesn’t let you speak. Would not recommend him AT ALL.
Hip replacement, my first major surgery at age 72. Doctor DePaola kept me calm, cool and collected. Recovery and physical therapy had me up and about in no time. Celebrating my two year anniversary since operation. Still going strong.
Awful. No bedside manner for starters. Very rude arrogant. Insisted I just go for pt for the "sore" arm from my skiing mishap. I insisted something was very wrong. Six weeks into it he finally let me have an mri. I literally walked out of AMI when he calls me to say it seems my arm was broken in three places and to stop physical therapy. Really?!
Doctor and staff, wonderful.
Every time I come he is so helpful I’m in pain I leave with 75 % out of pain he gives me an injection and it helps so much To get rid of the pain
Dr DePaola is the best !!love his approach to a solution for issue. And his honesty is comforting. He is very thorough with explaining issue and the treatment he recommends. This is my second issue I'm coming to him for help with.
