|Dr. George Pasquarello Comments||Would Recommend|
Dr Pasquarello is doing his best to help me continue my lifestyle as my knee condition worsens to the inevitable knee replacement. So far I am very pleased with my results.
|Dr. Pasquarello was kind and extremely understanding of the pain I was in. Did the shots on the spot! Thank you, Dr. Pasquarello!||100%|
|Very satisfied with office visit (xray & exam room).||100%|
|Dr P is very personable. He immediately knew what my issue was and options to treat. He distracts from uncomfortable procedures and is thoughtful.||100%|
|I have already recommend him to several of my friends.||100%|
|He is very compassionate and caring.||100%|
|He is kind and informative. The doctor was great, except that I wish he would’ve explained more to me about my condition and body mechanics. I feel your group is state of the art but doesn’t fulfill the potential of professionalism. I used to work for University Orthopedics 20 years ago and am also a long time patient. In my experience and observation, especially in my last several visits, the moral of the support staff has gone way down. I feel almost like a number and it’s obvious that your workers are just trying to get through the day. Without being lengthy, I’ll just give one glaring example. I was getting an Xray in East Greenwich, and right in front of me, a staff member was complaining of patients and how miserable she was. In any setting of customer service, you always want to keep those kind of comments to yourself and maintain a friendly professional atmosphere. If I didn’t like Dr. Pasquarello so much, I wouldn’t return to your facility and certainly wouldn’t recommend anyone. It’s a shame that your support staff is seemingly gotten too comfortable to put the patients comfort first. I’m not sure if the sour moral is trickling down from upper management or simply the pressure to hustle through the day and get on to the next. I know you’re a nationally recognized group with extremely talented physicians. I regret having to report this negative experience to a company that I love.||100%|
|Finally a specialist that has a good communication skill and listens to his patient they’re hard to find!||100%|
|Dr Pasquarello is incredible. I've been to him before he started with University Ortho. His knowledge of how the body functions and 'the magic' in his fingers is unbelievable. He did a manipulation on my spine that took care of the problem I was experiencing. He talked about follow up PT, but I did not need it. The problem was solved at the visit and hold to this day a few weeks later.||100%|
|This Dr. Had been one of 3 doctors who had taken the time to help me remain in my own home and being capable of taking care of myself. He is not a pill pusher, and listens to concerns and updates. I wish all my doctors were as kind and devoted to continuity of care as he is.||100%|
|Great atmosphere from the complete staff, comfortable, courteous, professional and pleasant.||100%|
|Dr Pasquarello didn’t seem interested in what I’ve been going through that led me to his office. The visit with him was short and abrupt.||50%|

|Very happy to have chosen this doctor.||100%|
|I came there to try a procedure and the doc told me it wouldn’t help me. This is a proceedure to pay out of pocket. I think he should have tried to see my way as a patient. My alternative is surgery which I’m trying to avoid. I not happy with the visit and feel I’ve wasted my time. I was hopeful and Noel feel forced into surgery. I plan to get a second opinion and go ahead with the procedure I have chosen. Surgery is not an option at this time for me I’m sure that doc is a good doctor but not for me Thank you.||10%|

I have worked with Dr George Pasquarello in the past. He is a very compassionate and knowledgeable doctor. With incredible skills. I’m glad to be able to come and see him again. My insurance and out of pocket costs were the determining reasons I haven’t seen him for several years.
He recommended me to a different specialist that might better help me.
This man has an incredible ability to make people well. I heard about him from a friend who experienced unrelenting pain and found his skills to be beyond my expectations. I recommend him to everyone I know who need help with their back.
Very informative. Explained everything he was doing as he did it. Listened well and made recommendations after a thorough exam.
