What Our Patients Are Saying
I am now 5 months after shoulder and elbow surgery. I am almost completely "back to myself". I had a bad traumatic injury. I could not be more pleased with the care that I received by Dr. Ricci and his staff both before and after the surgery. I continue to be grateful that I was in the hands of such an outstanding surgeon as Dr. Ricci.
Dr. Hansen was pivotal along with my physiatrist at HSS in the accurate diagnosis of a tumor in my thoracic spine that caused immense upper back pain that radiated to my chest. Although he has deep experience in treating tumors the one I suffered from was in a rare location that’s inherently more complex to treat and the previous practice I went to wasted my time for a year without a clue as to the cause of my pain or the direction to point me to. Rather than leaving me high and dry Dr. Hansen connected me to a surgeon at MSK who specializes in this area and that referral ultimately saved my life.
Excellent doctor with good communication skills. He answered my questions, and he also made some very good suggestions. Traveled from Charleston SC, and it was worth the trip.
