Ratings for Dr. Rocco R. Tutela
There are (or were) more than one surgeon with this name. This is a review on Rocco Tutela affiliated with Highland Park office: DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR unless you have to or are prepared to do your research and closely monitor his actions. Though he has a good bedside manor and seems to be tentative, he ignored (or missed) that my husband is on immune-system suppressing drugs. He proceeded with the surgery without taking my husband off those drugs and did not prescribe ANY antibiotics prior or during surgery. He prescribed only a very mild antibiotics 4 days after the surgery. Likely, as a result, my husband got a severe Staph infection of the wound, which took him 2 months to recover from and close the wound. The procedure was suppose to be routine. His staff is no gem either, they fussed when we requested a copy of our records. If you have other options, do not use this surgeon.
Dr. Tutela is wonderful. He has been treating my daughter for over 5 years. She is 9 years old and has been getting reconstructive surgery as a result of a chemical burn. He is caring, sweet & my daughter loves him. He even has her picture in one of his offices. As a parent I was very nervous what the results would be after surgery. After numerous surgeries, ther results are truly a miracle. My famiy adores him & his wonderdul staff.
