Ratings for Dr. Richard A. Rosa
There are good doctors and then there are outstanding doctors. It has been quite a while since my total hip replacement, but I thank him even to this day for giving me the ability to stand up tall, both feet on the ground and completely pain free. Thank you to Dr. Rosa and his associates for their patience with me and making me feel well taken care of.
Simply and succinctly I couldn't wait to get out once I got in. Dr rosa has a personality like a crate of rotting eggs. He could care less. Maybe my expectations were too high but I just had no confidence in the place. Not going back. Don't recommend the joint. Thought he could handle a painful knee. My mistake.
I have seen Dr. Rosa on different occasions for both a torn ligament (MCL) in my knee as well as a broken ankle. In my opinion he is the best in the business and extremely knowledgeable. Originally I thought that I would need knee surgery and was unsure if I would ever get back to athletics, but Dr. Rosa explained to me that my knee did not need to be operated on. He put me on a physical therapy regimen and prescribed other treatment. Through his help my knee is now stronger than ever and I continued to play sports at a collegiate level. I now recommend him to all of my friends and family.
Picked this Dr. from NJ top docs. He basically couldn't explain what was wrong with me and referred me to pain management. Pain management wouldn't treat my knee and Dr. Rosa wouldn't give me pain meds. I called his office at least 4 times to discuss this with him, but never received a call back. Staff said he was too busy to take calls himself. Now I am barely able to walk and have to find another doctor ASAP.
First I saw Dr. Garcia. He rushed my visit and didn't listen to me. Then I went to see Dr. Rosa. I waited an excruciating amount of time and had no answer. Dr. Garcia wanted to do surgery on my shoulder. I went to get another opinion....it was not my shoulder at all but the bone in my upper arm. I would have had unnecessary surgery if I did not seek another opinion. On a positive note, the office staff was very polite and kind.
