In 2013 I had pain to my groin and hip area I was referred to Dr Germano by a patient of his so I set up an appointment with him.He told me I osteoarthritis and after tests he told me I needed a full hip replacement.He was so kind and understanding when I cancelled the procedure twice.Finally I set the date and had the procedure. He always had time to listen to me when I came in for my checkup’s in spite of a list of questions I bought with me each time.Two years later my other hip had to be replaced and I never questioned it and he replaced that one to.He gave me the ability to walk without pain and his bedside manner is wonderful,patient,and a great surgeon.
