There is some brevity with Dr. Panaro, but if you ask questions he listens and gives answers. Had a labral tear of the hip and he was my surgeon, he also diagnosed me correctly when another specialist could not. I found him very knowledgeable, I felt like I was in good hands. It's been over six months since the operation and my pain is gone, having the operation changed my life. The nurse who took out my surgery staples was excellent, 10/10. But his administrative staff was terrible. They gave me incorrect fasting information (the hospital nurse who corrected me on the fasting was furious when they found out where I got my misinformation) and that's just so irresponsible. Once I did not see him until TWO HOURS after the scheduled appointment time. Always late, even by Doctor standards. It got to the point where when I had to see him I would block off the entire afternoon or morning from work. Time is a finite resource, and it's a shame the time of the patients is not respected. Summary: Great surgeon. Good nursing staff. Poor Administrative staff. Horrible punctually, likely due to having poor administrative staff.

"Not very talkative or explanatory." Well that tells you right there that something is wrong. Either does not know the answer or is being evasive so the patient does not catch the doctor's mistakes. All good surgeons have both good technique AND good 'bedside manner'.

Had a knee replaced and Panaro, although not very talkative and/or explanatory, appears to have done an excellent job. I expect a methodical, competent, knowledgeable surgeon and I got exactly what I wanted. I actually appreciated the absence of any bedside rhetoric. On the other hand, his office staff are the worst I've EVER had the misfortune of having to deal with. Seems that every organization has a "Trish" but she takes arrogance and just plain snottiness to a whole new level. She needs to learn that, like her lot in life or not, she US A RECEPTIONIST and not the surgeon. I can't belief a terrific surgeon would employ such a hag. The nurse, Daralyn is only a step better, much more polished communication skills but the queen of misdirection....she's teflon. If you can get her to return a message you will have wished she hadn't. All she does is condescend, constantly scold you, defer everything back to you or your GP. I despise being forced to even have to speak to either of these substandard - mean spirited - administrators. Unfortunately, the competance of the surgeon makes it a necessity.

My husband just had hip replacement on Jan 19, 2017. I was extremely anxious, so I Google dr. Panero. I was very happy to read about him and all the many success stories found here. I believe for anyone reading this upset and concerned for there loved one that dr. Panero, although I only saw him once is a very strong confident dude, and I only hope he would be my husband's surgeon should he ever need one. Very lucky to have him in edmonton!!! And Dr. Panero if you read this god bless you and thank you so so much.

Contrary to what I read in previous comments, Dr. Panaro listened thoroughly to my concerns and asked many questions to determine the cause and treatment for my hip. He did not rush through the visit at all and he listened carefully to my concerns. There was not push to do any additional, unnecessary procedures. He said that if things changed or if pain developed to call his office and we would re-evaluate the situation. An excellent doctor with great staff to support him. Keep in mind that as a busy specialist, it is likely that he will be running behind on his appointment times (but that happens with all of the good doctors as there aren't enough of them and all patients deserve access to the good ones!)

Dr Panaro replaced my hip and did a wonderful job I'm 12 days in recovery and I and able to do minor walking on my leg already. He tried everything to help me when my pain was in bearable from my work. I'm a pipeline consultant and usually walk 6-12 km a day. When it became appetant that the pain was steadily getting worse he operated on my hip giving me the ability to earn the most lucrative time in my life. If this man had not done the right thing and helped me I would have lost my ability to support my family. He's honerable and a good man.
