I cannot say enough good things regarding Dr. Sclafani. I was always dealt with dignity and respect. During visits he always gave me his undivided attention and answered all of my questions. I feel very blessed to have had him as my Orthopedic Surgeon.

Cole entered his Junior year with so much enthusiasm that he knew he would have the opportunity to play at the next level, and after his season ending knee injury we all thought he may have lost that dream.
Your expertise on how to approach the problem was exemplary and because of you and Cole’s hard work he is living the dream.

“I am extremely pleased with Dr. Bhatnagar. He is an extraordinarily skilled and patient-surgeon and has exceeded my expectations more than he could know. I appreciate that he took the time to explain everything, honestly and to the point. I am comforted by his confidence and know his standards.”


“Smart, great bedside manner. Felt like I met the right doctor for me.”


“Dr. Bhatnagar and his staff changed my life put me back on track with no pain I will always be grateful and never forget. Dr. Bhatnager personally reached out to me when I was struggling with my mental health during recovery, with words of hope, strength, and wisdom. Dr. B is not only my doctor but also a friend”


“Had an unfortunate accident this year..thanks to Dr. Bhatnagar I am just about back to normal. I can’t thank him or his assistant, Steve, enough!”
