Patient Rating:

“I saw Dr. DiPreta today for a follow up on door surgery from last week. He was punctual for the appointment, gave me a detailed overview of what he had done and what I can expect going forward. I feel I'm in the best hands possible to heal my injury.”

– Steve K.

Patient Rating:

“I have been very pleased with Dr DiPreta's care with me thus far! He checked in on me morning and evening the first day after my surgery and the next two more mornings. He did this with compassion, care and a smile on his face. Expert mastering of his skill is quite obvious. I couldn't be more happy to have him as my doctor. I was in an awful car accident which caused my terribly broken foot. It is very comforting to know that I am in excellent hands under his care!”
