Dr. Ciccone has done two shoulder surgeries on me, the first one was in 2023 in March. He operated on my right shoulder in January of 2024. He was instrumental in getting the last surgery approved by my insurance company after they initially denied it. He's made the whole process as smooth and painless as possible. Highly recommend.

Dr Ciccone is amazing. He did my two shoulder surgeries. When I injured myself year again, I saw him to make sure I didn’t re-damage my self. Luckily this time nothing bad. I recommend him to all my people.

Had an injury on Labor Day weekend, called on Tuesday and was scheduled to come in for a look at my shoulder Wednesday. Was quickly seen once I arrived and did not spend much time waiting in the exam room. Doctor Ciccone and his training doctor were both very professional, and I would recommend the office to friends and family.
