Healthgrades Review

In February 2002 while in line skating, I broke my right wrist. Dr Scarangella was awesome and so was his team. Eventually I’d even forget it had been broken. Fast forward to September 2022. I fell and broke the same wrist. I was so happy to find Dr Scarangella still practiced. Once again he’s done an excellent job. He and his team treat with caring and dignity. I recommend him highly. After all, I’m a repeat customer! Thank you Dr Scarangella!

Everyone was awesome

The office was immediately friendly - unlike another ortho office in Farmington where I went multiple times for stiffness in my thumb. That office wasn’t open when I needed to go for a new knee issue so I called here and got in that morning. The X-ray tech Dr Schmidtberg put me at ease right away, diagnosis was quick, not a super serious issue, I’m not an athlete w/ a terrible injury. I mostly went to see what I should and shouldn’t be doing to get it to heal completely since it was taking a bit. The doctor was friendly, funny, knowledgeable and answered all my questions w/ patience. I mentioned my ongoing hand issue and he wanted to know more about that. We decided to go w/ a cortisone shot for that because it’d gone on so long. I’d put it off because I wasn’t sure exactly what to do and the previous office didn’t help me much w/ making that decision. Highly recommend this office.

Everyone gets A++ at H.O.S. I highly recommend this group of professionals. I am actually looking forward to my follow-up! PS: My back is much better just from the arthritis meds prescribed .... and I haven't even started my P.T. training yet.
