Patient Reviews (9)

Dr. Darosa is a pretty no-frills guy, but walked me through all the steps. I wasn't quite clear whether he really recommended some of the injections or not. I know he said that it was my decision, but I don't have any idea how to make this decision. I really appreciated his honesty.


Dr. DaRosa is a good communicator and thus far the most helpful sports med doctor / orthopedist we've seen.


*Dr. Darosa is as good as it gets.


This was honestly one of the best experiences I've ever had. Dr. Darosa came into the room fully prepared & had already reviewed my medical history. He took time answering questions & did a more thorough exam than previous doctors.


*Dr. Darosa has incredible skills in manual medicine. He is thorough & logical in his patient approach.


*Dr. Darosa is the epitome of a great physician - concerned about emotional as well as physical aspects.


Already recommended this provider to my husband for care. Very pleased with my experience.


Dr. DaRosa is very knowledgeable and offers me choices on how to proceed with my body issues. He is very patient with explanations and discussion. He has helped me immensely with navigating through my problems.


There is always a very quick in and out wanting to get patients through the door, but sometimes it feels very rushed and I can't think of questions to ask that fast.
