My goal is to provide high quality care to my patients. I tend to have a conservative approach to many of the common orthopaedic injuries I treat. I also like to include my patients in the decision making process regarding the best possible treatment for their injury or problem.

I have a calcium deposit in the tendon on my rotator cuff. the last 3 months, the pain has gone into my forearm and elbow. the reason for my visit was I have pain and swelling that hurts to bend and straighten my arm. X-rays were taken of my arm, but not my shoulder. upon examination, Dr. Talerico determined it was tennis elbow. He went on to say, and I quote " Well, you aren't 20 anymore " He then told me to go on Amazon and order a support band. I do not believe it is just tennis elbow, as I can barely brush my teeth with that arm. I would never recommend him, and feel he is extremely unprofessional. furthermore, I will not be submitting any payment not covered by my insurance.

Reviewed on November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

Great doctor. Terrible phone staff. No return calls for messages left. Had incorrect records info re: my treatment. As a result I could not get the hand brace I needed as they argued that I needed to be seen. I had just been seen & they showed no record of it, offered to do nothing to help me. I may stop seeing this doctor because I can't communicate with him through his staff. Why would I want to have surgery & be dealing with such a staff? No.

When I asked questions about the cortisone injection the doctor said "so you don't want this injection" I wanted to learn more about it before getting the injection. I wanted to be mentally prepared for pain. The printed information given did not apply to me; it concerned similar symptoms in a new mother. I did not get specific information about how this condition occurred in my case.
