I started seeing Dr. Vannozzi for an old injury to my right knee. He was doing injections in the knee in preparation for knee replacement surgery in the near future. Then, when I injured my left knee at work, I knew immediately that I wanted Dr. Vannozzi for it also. He was caring and considerate and didn’t jump on the “you must have surgery immediately” bandwagon. We discussed my options and did the conservative approach first, of arthroscopic and injections. Then, when the knee got worse, we discussed total knee replacement. He walked me through every step, letting me know what to expect at every turn. I had total confidence in him and knew that I would get the best care in a professional and caring manner. He was there for me, answering all my questions and was always available when I called. It was a long process from surgery to rehab to where I am today and Dr. Vannozzi has been with me every step of the way. I have total confidence in him and his abilities and I feel like I am part of his team.
He is going to be replacing my right knee in January and I know Dr. Vannozzi is going to make this surgery and aftercare go as well, if not better, as he stays on top of the cutting-edge of the ever-changing technology in replacements.
A co-worker of mine has been going to NYC for his knee and wanted something closer to where he lives in NJ. I recommended Dr. Vannozzi. He went to see him and his surgery is already scheduled for November. That is a true indication of the compassion, knowledge, and confidence Dr. Vannozzi shows to every person he sees.
There is a running joke with the receptionist every time I come to the office to see Dr. Vannozzi: I have to say “left knee” or “right knee” so they know which knee he will be seeing me for. They are wonderful – I walk in and they know my name!
