Dr. Carlo Panaro's Ratings
My meeting with Dr. Panaro was not a positive experience. He was extremely late, rushed through, was condesending in his attitude to the point of almost being rude. He ordered some further tests and is taking months to meet with him to go over the results. My understanding talking to nurses from the hospital is that to him it is all about cramming in as many patients as possible. All about the money, not about the person. He may be skilled at what he does, but he needs to slow down and improve his relationship with the patients. His bedside manner sucks. Don't think that taking months to see him is about him being the best. It is because he is taking on more than he can handle properly.
On October 30, 2013, Dr Panaro performed a complete hip replacement on me. I have to say that he was so kind and understanding. He listened to everything I was concerned about. This hip replacement was required from a farm accident that resulted in a couple of tears. Initially I was quite terrified to have this surgery performed so was not Eager to go through with the surgery at that time. I left his office and dealt with the pain and ongoing deteriation of my right hip. When the pain was unbearable and of course arthritis set in I called him again. Surgery date was set and I arrived at the edmonton hip and knee clinic as planned. Dr Panaro performed the surgery. My stay at the clinic for the following three days was not acceptable. Most of the staff were terrible. Absolutely terrible care for more than 80% of my stay there. There were a couple of really good nursing staff but not many. For three days I was never offered even a face cloth to wash. My pain meds were forgotten fit over nine hours. On day three I finally tried to shower totally unassisted and the nurse would not help at all. I was given a hand towel to dry off. I would have to rate the Edmonton hip and knee surgical facility at less than a single star.
With that being said, this should not reflect on Dr Panaro. His care and knowledge was second to none. The results of my surgery are wonderful. My new hip has changed my life. I walk totally without any symptoms. No limp. Nobody can even tell I have ever had hip replacement surgery. It will be a year on Oct 30th and I am fully enjoying life again. I am even back horse back riding. I thank Dr Panaro for giving me my life back.
After waiting 45 mimutes I felt like I was rushed in & out. He was very disinterested & made me feel like I was inconveniencing him. Because of this I am very stressed about the surgery. I can only pray everything goes well.
I had a very bad fall, crushed my heal and broke my wrist and had some tendon damage in my foot, Dr. Panaro did surgery placing 8 screws and a plate to reconstruct it all. Very grateful for good Dr’s like Panero, he also has a great team. Waiting times are sometimes extended at check up appointments, that’s because he has to deal with many patients. If you have any questions for him make sure they are short and to the point he is a busy man. After almost 4 months I'm very happy to finally be walking again. After researching my procedure and having gone through it all I know, Dr. Panaro did a great job. Knowing i had a great Dr. made my bad injury experience more bearable.
Dr. Panaro reattatched my hamstring after I suffered a complete tear last year due to a bad fall. It was not easy to find a Dr. Who would perform this surgery and especially on someone my age and physical condition. He was professional, honest and I am forever greatful for the use of my leg once again, I could not imagine going through life without surgery. His bedside manner was excellent, he was very patient to answer all my questions and concerns. I highly recommend this gifted Dr. , without him, I would not be able to continue to work the career I love and would be in great pain.
If you need an orthopedic specialist then Dr. Panaro's the guy you hope you'll get. He's smart, friendly, knowledgeable and takes the time to answer your questions. Due to a misdiagnosis at a medi-centre I missed the window for surgery on my fully ruptured Achilles. Dr. Panaro has gone the conservative healing route for my recovery and he is so fantastic and reassuring. This isn't my first time dealing with specialists so I know this guy is amazing. His staff are terrific as well. We are so lucky to have him in Edmonton.
