Ratings for Dr. Angelo J. Colosimo
Went a year on crutches before he did surgery. Never spent more than 2 minutes in the room with me before he left with his swarm of medical students. Every time he entered the room he acted like he was a rockstar doctor. Bragging that he used to be the Cincinnati Bengals doctor. Had 2 bad surgeries by him before I wised up and went to another doctor for a second opinion. Found out my pain was coming from one of the screws he put in my knee/leg.
Dr. Colosimo did shoulder surgery on my daughter last year when she was 19 and we had got the run around from many of other doctors. He just did shoulder surgery on her other shoulder last week. My daughter has type 3 ehlers danlos. Dr. Colosimo has been amazing through it all! Couldn't ask for a better doctor! Would highly recommend him especially for shoulders!
I saw Dr. Colosimo in 2006 for a knee that I had fallen, twisted & it popped on my way to step aerobics class; after falling I was unable to stand back up on my leg whatsoever! Dr. Colosimo saw me immediately & recommended; arthroscopic surgery to repair tears in the meniscus, torn ligaments and to clean it up; After 3 arthroscopic surgeries back2back & recurrent dislocation of the right patella he decided I needed the Fulkerson procedure. After 6 months of healing, post op therapy... I am proud to report 12 years later that I am still humbly grateful that I was luckily referred to Dr. Colosimo. He provided for me a positive & promising future w/no pain & no problems!! Thank you sincerely - Dr. Colosimo ~ XoXoX
Got to see the doctor?for approximately 5 or 6 minutes. Most of that time he spent (yelling) at his assistant. I have my right bicep torn from my elbow, I am 64 years old and have lots of years left. His assistant recommended surgery,but, when the good?doctor came in took a quick glance at my x-rays, started yelling "Do you want to do this surgery ? Are you in charge here ? I would'nt touch this with a 10 foot pole !" 1derfull manners for a jackass ! My dog, I would'nt send to him ! I am now hunting for a doctor who is NOT a legend in his or her own mind !
He is negligent and we plan on filing a complaint with the medical board and taking legal action. He botched an elective surgery, performed a second surgery and then refused to see me when I could not bend my knee after several weeks. I got 2 second opinions, and was told what he did was malpractice by the other docs. I had to have a 3rd surgery to undo what Colosimo did, and now I will never be able to play soccer again. I had to withdraw from school, and now am deeply depressed. Please DO NOT let this happen to you!!!!!
Dr. Colosimo performed tommy john surgery on my daughter Mikayla Giordano, like an amateur. The tendon was the wrong size , he never moved the nerve and as we speak she is in surgery . Having it redone the correct way. And also be aware he is not a hands on doctor, We saw him twice throughtout. BEWARE.Also 2 months after surgery in 1 of his reports he referred to her as another student in a different school and a different sport.
