    Dr. Bini. An exercise in excellence.
    Nov 07, 2023
    Dr. Stefano Bini is one of the finest physicians from whom I have received care over the years. He has consistently maintained a focus on creating a provider-patient relationship in the shared decisionmaking as to my surgery treatment options and followup care.

    Dr. Bini is one of your finest surgeons - I will always recommend him.
    Mar 30, 2023
    Dr Bini and I were able to connect by phone after much effort for him to call me on his part
    Mar 07, 2023
    The visit was cut off after about 12 minutes and the connection was not restored. I think the clinic should have contacted me to let me know what I should do - wait or reschedule or contact IT support. I had to call the team and could not schedule another call to complete the visit for a month which I think is too long a wait given what happened.
    Mar 04, 2023
    Very dehumanizing experience.
    Mar 04, 2023
    Dr. Bini listens so well. When he first came into the room he engaged so well with my husband and me. He turned to look at my new xrays on the computer. I did not expect him to hear a comment I made about my knee. He did and answered me immediatley. He listens! A knee replacement is not an easy thing to go through but my doctor has simply been the best and I have a beautiful new knee. The kindness during this visit and during all the encounters I have had with Dr. Bini have been the best a person could hope for.
    Mar 02, 2023
    My pain was taken seriously.
    Mar 02, 2023
    Suggested to care provider that program suggest physical therapy begin at discharge rather than current recommendation of after three weeks
    Feb 23, 2023
    Dr. Bini is simply the best.He is very knowledgeable professional and understanding.
    Feb 16, 2023
    Nurse practitioner was professional and went above and beyond with care before Dr Bini came in. He is so very positive and professional.
    Feb 16, 2023
    He is skilled and experienced but I didn't feel that he really took the time to understand my concerns
    Feb 02, 2023
    I was very impressed with my Doctor he was Very knowledgeable
    Dec 29, 2022
    Dr. Bini is very thorough and listens to my concerns and answers my questions. Thank you!
    Dec 25, 2022
    I have been very impressed with Dr. Bini's surgery care and treatment of my knee replacement.
    Dec 15, 2022
    Outstanding experience in positive way
    Dec 10, 2022
    I was shocked by his comments on my weight right of the bat and him stating that I should get my fat surgically removed. I had never heard a doctor say that before. That was not why I was there.
    Nov 18, 2022
    Dr Bini was consulted as a second opinion on knee surgery. He spent considerable time with me discussing the pros and cons of surgery. He made recommendations he answered all my questions he educated me. In short he was a top notch doctor caring for a patient who was not even his patient. Awesome care.
    Nov 15, 2022
    My visit felt very rushed. Provider was accompanied by two associates and spent as much time showing them my imaging as talking to me.
    Nov 15, 2022
    Dr Bini and his team are the best
    Nov 03, 2022
    I trust Dr Bini
    Oct 27, 2022
    Very good
    Oct 27, 2022
    We discussed moving my surgery date forward not delaying it.
    Oct 23, 2022
    The provider disputed the radiologist determination of the extent of my injuryhe was determined to only offer surgical approach. I asked of options and he offered none. I had to decide between the Radilogist and the Ortho doc..
    Oct 01, 2022
    The best!
    Sep 15, 2022
    I felt he jumped to a diagnosis very quickly with little examination
    Sep 10, 2022
    The Ortho group is extremely well organized efficient and all staff have excellent "bedside manners". It's a great group. I feel confidant about my pending surgery.
    Sep 08, 2022
    Dr. Bini still gets 5 from me.
    Sep 06, 2022
    Because of the mask we had a hard time understanding the surgeon.
    Sep 01, 2022
    Still waiting to hear what was decided total or partial replacement and when.
    Aug 26, 2022
    Dr/ briefly introduced his assistant but it was never slear how she assisted him. She said she'd provide followi-up but nothing has come.
    Aug 18, 2022
    Dr. Bini is so kind focused attentive patient and present. I feel extremely blessed to have been under his care.
    Aug 17, 2022
    Dr Bini and support staff really are the best.
    Aug 12, 2022
    The first time I saw Dr Bini he talked too fast and with the mask I could hardly understand him.
    Aug 07, 2022
    I absolutely love the staff here.
    Jul 28, 2022
    Jul 23, 2022
    I would definitely recommend Dr. Bini for orthopedic surgery. He is professional patient personable and responsive to concerns.
    Jul 21, 2022
    I was disappointed that there really was little treatment available except a walker
    Jul 20, 2022
    I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
    Jul 14, 2022
    Great visit was able to talk to the doctor about the progress we are making and continue progress we need to make until prospective surgery
    Jul 14, 2022
    The care there is amazing
    Jul 14, 2022
    Dr Bini is an excellent doctor - very knowledgeable & good at decision making in taking care of my knee problems.

    Jun 09, 2022
    Dr. Bini is convinced he knows everything prior to seeing him or after he looks tor touches you a few times. He never shows any empathy or listens nor did he this time. I have no idea what his "plan"would be if things don't improve with him. He even acts bored or disengaged in our conversations when I am there.
    May 30, 2022
    Dr. Bini is like a family including all his teams. Very Good I will recommend Dr. Bini to all my friends and my family
    May 26, 2022
    Dr. Bini is very thorough in his explanations of procedures tests exams etc. I would recommend Dr. Bini to friends and family.
    May 23, 2022
    I'm just somewhat confused originally the plan was to put a hinge in the knee and he didn't do it and I figured he had a better course of action and the knee was good for the first 6 months but slowly went back as before
    May 11, 2022
    Dr. Bini seems focused and compassionate. I feel that I am in very good hands with this surgeon.
    May 05, 2022
    Good experience
    Apr 30, 2022
    Bini seemed off-hand with me slouching back in his chair and speaking in a somewhat slurred manner. I'm not confident that he took my injuries seriously. He said to wait and see if they get better and I plan to see a different provider if they don't get better. I think he said that ACL tears are not usually repaired -- showed me an image of what he called a perfectly functional knee in which the ACL was completely torn.
    Apr 21, 2022
    Awesome great job.
    Apr 15, 2022
    This was one of the most pleasant experiences I've had, that I've understood the knowledge that I received about what was happening, what they were going to do for me, where we went from here. I would recommend their facility tomorrow and friends and family but people I didn't even know. They were awesome from start to finish
    Apr 05, 2022
    Dr. Bini and his entire team were helpful timely and thorough regarding my health care and surgery.
    Mar 16, 2022
    Good Experience
    Mar 10, 2022
    Dr. Bini replaced my right hip about 5 years ago and made a huge positive difference in my life. This visit was extremely helpful to me in his reviewing my experience after a fall. I would recommend him whole heartedly to anyone who has hip problems.
    Mar 10, 2022
    We don't agree about activity limitations.
    Mar 03, 2022
    I'm so pleased that I did my research and selected Dr. Bini. I have the utmost confidence in his knowledge and skill as a surgeon and he's personable as well. I have felt in good hands with him. Thank you.
    Feb 18, 2022
    Dr. Bini is an excellent Orthopaedic surgeon. I am 65 and seen many doctors. He is the best in his field and on top of that he is extremely friendly. I have praised him many times when I talked to my family and friends.He is number 1 in my book.
    Feb 15, 2022
    Dr Bini explains things very well. Additionally his knowledge and experience on knees continues to be impressive backed with research and data.
