We orthopedic surgeons all trained to be physicians first, then proceeded to learn surgical technique. I carefully assess a patient’s condition and then determine a treatment plan specific for him/her, which may or may not involve surgery. I try not to operate until all other options are exhausted.

This appointment was the first time I felt like the doctor truly listened to my concerns.

SBO Patient 5/17

Dr. Rozzi was very friendly and knowledgeable.

SBO Patient 3/17

Dr. Rozzi has always presented me with my options for treatment and has allowed me to make my own decisions, while giving his expert advice.

SBO Patient 3/17

Could not have had a better visit.

SBO Patient 3/17

As far as my experience with Dr. Rozzi I could not be happier.  He is efficient, thorough with his easy to understand explanations, and did an excellent job replacing my two hips.  I cannot say enough good about him and recommend him every chance I get.

SBO Patient 2/17

I have had Dr. Rozzi in the past and I CHOSE to see him for my currant problem.

SBO Patient 1/17

Very pleased.

SBO Patient 1/17

Dr. Rozzi is an excellent doctor/surgeon.

SBO Patient 1/17

It was good.

SBO Patient 1/17

I've been coming to Dr. Rozzi for years, the treatment I've been getting has been quick and works.

SBO Patient 1/17

So I waited for a long time, because my doc was on call to the ER...that is totally understandable.  When I did saw the doc's nurse she was so empathetic, and frazzled!  The doc was great, when I finally saw him. I was not expecting any warm fuzzy feelings from him, but he was factual and informative.  I view docs as technicians, and specialists are the top dog in this field!

SBO Patient 12/16

Dr. Rozzi explained everything and all my options in detail.

SBO Patient 12/16

I feel Dr. Rozzi is an excellent provider, but because of running behind schedule, he does not have adequate time to spend with me. I hesitate to ask many questions because I don't want to take away time from the other patients.

SBO Patient 11/16

I was told that Dr. Rozzi was the best doctor to see for my injury.  I am glad to report that he is indeed extremely knowledgeable and has a good 'bedside manner.'

SBO Patient 10/16

Dr Rozzi was great at explaining  things to me.

SBO Patient 9/16

Good.

SBO Patient 9/16

Very happy with the care. Very professional, friendly and compassionate. Communicated his diagnoses and treatment options very well.

SBO Patient 9/16

I will be happy to have Dr. Rozzi provide care for me or my family as needed in the future.

SBO Patient 9/16

Could have spent a little more time about options.

SBO Patient 8/16

I just met Dr. Rozzi this morning and my first impressions were I really liked him.  He took the time to explain what needed to be done.

SBO Patient 8/16

Dr. Rozzi was an excellent choice for me!

SBO Patient 8/16

Very Good.

SBO Patient 7/16

Dr. Rozzi was highly recommended by a friend.

SBO Patient 7/16

Dr Rozzi has been my surgeon through many things and I have the utmost faith in what he is telling me. I was reclining on the table and asked him how soon he was going to insert the needle and he was almost finished with the injection and I hadn't felt any needle puncture at all.

SBO Patient 7/16

Dr. Rozzi operated on me in 2004/remembered I liked him and it was the easiest surgery I ever had.  Fixed my problem and only had a few days of recovery and then worked myself slowly back into my normal exercise which is one hour everyday.

SBO Patient 7/16

Dr. Rozzi was excellent!

SBO Patient 7/16

Excellent.

SBO Patient 2/16

Dr. Rozzi is always very professional and shows concern.  He is very good at explaining what the options are concerning treatment.  A number of friends in my Church use him and they are satisfied as well.

 

SBO Patient 2/16

Dr. Rozzi is slow to warm up to but becomes more personable with each visit.  I appreciate have a doctor who seems to see me as a person being treated for a condition rather than just a medical issue.

 

SBO Patient 1/16

Dr. Rozzi is excellent.

 

SBO Patient 12/15

After turning 50 all I hear is well your older! Bone density -Arthritis just happens (I know it's true but doesn't mean I like to hear it).

SBO Patient 10/15
We are very pleased by the knowledge and skills of Dr. Rozzi, and others doctors we have seen.

SBO Patient 10/15
OK

SBO Patient 10/15
Professional, straight talking, excellent practitioner.

SBO Patient 9/15
Good experience.

SBO Patient 7/15
Although our visits weren't long, Dr. Rozzi was amazing. He explained everything to me in a way I could understand. He is so knowledgeable and caring. I really appreciated how he handled everything for me.

SBO Patient 4/15

Dr Rozzi explained the options and the benefits and risks with each for the treatment of my knee, and explained the time frame that I could expect to heal from my injury.

SBO Patient 3/15

I am confident Dr. Rozzi is a good surgeon, however he needs to take a few minutes to describe his procedures to his clients.  Also, communicate better to his staff for directions.

SBO Patient 3/15

This visit he mentioned the therapy dept available.  I just wish they had said something when I was seen on Friday in LaPorte.

SBO Patient 3/15

Excellent

SBO Patient 2/15

Seemed to be in a bit of a hurry and more tech explanation of issue than layman's terms. Did not really ask me if I had additional questions, but did answer the ones I had.

SBO Patient 2/15

Dr. Rozzi was very good with paddy - and helpful in terms of how he should begin exercising and playing sports.  Put Paddy (and myself) at ease about what to expect...

SBO Patient 2/15

The doctor was great.  Unfortunately My condition was not yet irritated so I wasn't much help in that matter.  He was going to give me a cream to help with the pain but the pharmacy has not yet contacted me.  I will be calling to check on that soon.

SBO Patient 1/15

It was my first visit lacking on trying to gather information from me. His exam was very good order an MRI.

SBO Patient 1/15

I had heard some negative comments concerning Dr Rozzi, however, I did not find any of that to be true. He is definitely a busy man but he was very courteous and kind. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

SBO Patient 12/14

Dr Rozzi is our first choice in orthopedic care giver.   He did my wife's surgery after a severe car accident, and we trust his judgment.

SBO Patient 11/14

I have recommended my doctor to several people.

SBO Patient 11/14

Dr Rozzi is an excellent surgeon!

SBO Patient 11/14

Knee replacement going great better than prior 25 years of pain.

SBO Patient 11/14

Because of the long wait times, I felt Dr. Rozzi was rushed in seeing us and in a hurry to get out of the room.

SBO Patient 10/14

WILL DEFINITELY RETURN FOR APPOINTMENT IN THE SPRING WHEN WE RETURN FROM FROM FLORIDA

SBO Patient 10/14

Dr. Rozzi has done 2 surgeries on me and both turned out wonderful.

SBO Patient 10/14

Dr. Rozzi overall was very good.  I would have liked a few more minutes with him but decided it could wait until the follow up appointment

SBO Patient 10/14

Dr. Rozzi  is efficient and gave me options to choose from. He was very gentle and he is my Dr. of choice, He preformed surgery on my knee 4 years ago and it has been very good till  recently when I twisted it. He told me to give it a couple of weeks. If I was still having problems I was to call and have an MRI.

SBO Patient 9/14

Dr. Rozzi is the BEST.

SBO Patient 8/14
WAS VERY HONEST.

SBO Patient 8/14
Excellent physician in Dr. Bill Rozzi.

SBO Patient 8/14
Excellent doctor would recommend again.

SBO Patient 8/14
Radiology said they saw fracture. Dr Rozzi said he did not see fracture after CT Scan. Dr. Rozzi diagnosed me as having arthritis and this condition was accelerated after fall. Nevertheless, I am in chronic pain.

SBO Patient 7/14
Helped with leg problem … glad I went.

SBO Patient 6/14
Fantastic doctor.

SBO Patient 6/14
My shoulder is shot, and Dr. thinks I am too young for a 'replacement' at this time. He ordered this 'cream' to apply but it didn't help at all. I guess I have to wait until the replacement shoulder is improved.

SBO Patient 5/14
Dr Rozzi is fantastic!!!

SBO Patient 5/14
Doctor was very good at explaining everything.

SBO Patient 5/14
Dr. Rozzi is an excellent Doctor.

SBO Patient 3/14
Everyone that I came into contact at the office was professional and caring. I have recommended the doctor to everyone that I have discussed about my medical issue.

SBO Patient 2/14
Best doctor there.

SBO Patient 11/13
I was very much at ease with the doctor.

SBO Patient 11/13
Hope not to have to return for help, but if I need any further orthopedic treatment, this would be the first place I would call.

SBO Patient 11/13
Dr. Rozzi was kind of reserved almost through with the thought that I was just getting a 2nd opinion from him. It was not until I said I wanted him to do the surgery that he warmed up to us. He was standoffish before I told him I wanted him to do it.

SBO Patient 10/13
Very Concerned.

SBO Patient 10/13
Everything was perfect.

SBO Patient 9/13
GOOD.

SBO Patient 9/13
I am very happy with the way Dr. Rozzi explains things to me. He always makes sure I understand and is very accurate in his assessments.

SBO Patient 8/13
This is why I came back to SBO. I was directed to another office that did NOT act or care professionally.

SBO Patient 8/13
Did not see my x-rays , but that's what wrong with every clinic that I have been to. If you ask for a medical report it’s worded for a professor not a patient.

SBO Patient 7/13
I would definitely recommend Dr Rozzi.

SBO Patient 5/13
I have recommended Dr. Rozzi several times to friends and family.

SBO Patient 3/13
Dr. Rozzi is the only one I ever see at the SBO at the LaPorte office, and this gentleman is the best doctor I have ever met. I can't say enough about him. I have referred some of my friends for knee surgery with Dr. Rozzi and they are just as happy with him as I am.
