Took my parent for a followup appointment. The receptionists and assistants were kind and helpful. The doctor was 30 minutes late. Got to hear him complain to his staff before coming in. The man couldn't even look to see when his surgery had been (less than a week prior.) My father tried to ask him a question about another health condition which was being effected by the new knee, couldn't even listen or recommend him to a PT or someone who could help. In fact, he blatantly cut him off mid sentence and said "see you in a month." Previously when my father tried to ask a question his response had been "Tell me what kind of degree do you have?" I work in public health and have never seen a professional so dismissive to his patients.

My mother went in for partial knee replacement. when they went in they said she needed a full and proceeded to install a replacement to large now she falls all the time and she is 83. Her second knee was done by dr stube and everything was perfect. She is too afraidto be put through the wringer at this point in her life to do anything about it:(

I had my partial replacements 10 years ago. I'm worried because they are at their lifespan, yet, they feel as good as new. I forget I have them. If I overdo the stair walking I might get a little pain, but otherwise they are fine. They will last well past 10 years. I'm 70 now. My recovery time was painful because I have a low pain threshold, but I'm more than please with their longevity.

Had partial knee done October 2011. Had problems immediatly following. Went back after 3 weeks and he suggested a cortesone shot. He placed a paper towel on the floor, put latex gloves on, did the injection. It bled a little from the injection and he picked up the paper towel off of the floor and dabbed the blood away before applying a bandaid. We were astonished. Went to another surgeon who removed the partial and installed a total. He stated if it wasn't for Dr. Repicci you would only need half as many surgeons in Western New York. He usually sees his patients after 2 years not 4 months which was my case.

Had a left knee arthroscopy in Feb. 2010 for torn menisus. I woke up from surgery with the same pain and limitation I had before the procedure was done. Suffered for months with poor response from Dr. Respect. I had multiple injections by his Physician Assistance Kelly Jordan that were extremely painful. During the 5th and last one, I was screaming, crying and begging her to withdraw the needle. She refused and continued to prob. I left sobbing and dragging my leg out the door. I never went back and found another Orthopedic surgeon, who repeated the MRI. That showed persistent horizontal posterior meniscus tear, the same that showed before my first surgery, but now an additional vertical tear and a piece had broken off and floating in the joint. My second arthroscopy was done in August 2010. When I woke up the pain was gone, and after Rehab movement back to normal. I wrote to Dr. Repecci about this issue and found him totally unwilling to accept any responsibility for his lack of care

My mother had a partial knee replacement a few months ago with nothing but troubles from him, he kept telling her she was fine recently to find out she is NOT. Infection in knee, excruciating pain since, and keep getting sent home with no help. Now it looks like another hospitalization. You decide....

My Dad had a partial knee replacement done 2 yrs. ago by Dr. Repicci with fantastic results. I was very concerned because my Dad was 89 yrs. old at the time. He was walking 2 hours after surgery and followed the Dr.'s orders for the next few weeks. He has not had any complications or regrets since. Both the doctor and his staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you, Dr. Repicci.

Dr Repicci is the most arrogant human I've ever encountered. He operated on my wife's knees twice and she still cannot walk more than a few minutes without extreme pain. After surgury he absolutely refused to answer any questions about the surgury and displayed absolute contempt for us because we dared to ask them. If the results of the surgury were good I guess I would accept his incredible rudeness like everyone else, but the results were less than good.
