Dr. Pirolo is excellent, and he is especially good at explaining the nature of my pain and the options for addressing it. Unlike many surgeons, he does not come across as a used car salesman. I have already recommended him to several of my friends.
I would like to thank Magee (can´t remember her last name), PA-C for being as great as Dr. Pirolo. They both were so skillful as well as very straight forward and reassuring.
The couldn´t was very informative I am able to make a decision about surgery with utmost confidence.
Dr. Pirolo was awesome.
Dr. Pirolo is an excellent doctor and surgeon. My experience went very well and I would definitely recommend him to others.
Dr. Pirolo talks spanish language and that helps a lot. And his surgeries are excelent, the best.
I have confidence in Dr. Porrilo
Meeting and speaking with Dr. Pirolo about my hand surgery made me feel heard when I explained my injury and my worries and thoughts. He was very informative and very compassionate. I felt he truly cared for me as his patient and would take the best care of me during the surgery. Although the surgery is small, it is my first and I was quite nervous about it. That is until I met Dr. Pirolo and he walked me through the plan for surgery and the risks and such. I feel much calmer and not so nervous about it any longr. He seemed quite confident, and in turn, I feel confident all will go will. Thank you for setting me up with such a compassionate and kind Doctor.
use of a hand model would be helpful to demonstrate the surgical idea.
Dr. Pirolo is wonderful!

Although I miss Dr. Shors, Dr. Pirolo seems like an excellent substitute and should be a fabulous addition to the team.
