Dr. did not know what was causing the problem, so had no advice on what to do if it happened again. Partially my fault for not asking.

I realize they see a lot of patients and have a variety of tasks to do for all patients however I have to wait almost a week to get the results of a test that the testing site informed me would be ready in 1-2 days. prolonging my pain and anxiety of a true diagnosis and plan

I came to SS Ortho thinking I may have a sprained ankle (I have had a surgeon at the Brigham) the doctor grilled me as to why I didn't see my own doctor, he was abrupt, rude and when I asked if it was a mistake coming to this office he said yes

I just feel as though the Dr. doesn't know exactly whats going on with my knee and isn't really sure what to do about it. I know he is concerned, but I don't think he realizes the pain I' am going through.

After waiting for 45 minutes, I felt as though my consultation with the doctor failed to include many details. I have since met with another doctor, who showed me the MRI results and provided me with hand written notes to help inform my decision.

I love Dr Marchetti but he is rather quiet and a bit hard to get information from. Sometimes I wish I could read his mind as to what he is thinking.
