Please rate your experience with your doctor.: 

“After falling on my elbow in a parking area, I completely shattered it. I was driven by ambulance to Overlook Hospital in Summit, New Jersey. I had never experienced such excruciating pain before. I was x-rayed and the technician's remark after seeing the result was, "No wonder you're in so much pain." My wife had driven to Overlook and I asked her to call the orthopedic surgeon who earlier saved my mother-in-law's leg from a pool accident. She called Dr. Colizza and he instructed Shelly to send me up in an ambulance to reserve an OR for immediate surgery. The nurse injected me with morphine so I could handle the pain. Dr. Colizza was just ready to leave the hospital that Friday to prepare for his vacation to Europe the next day. Dr. Colizza made all the arrangements for me to come in for an emergency surgery and it went off without a hitch. He implanted a 7" stainless steel plate and nine screws in my arm. The surgery was a complete success and after three months of prescribed physical therapy, I had more than 90% range of motion. I will never forget Dr. Colizza putting his patient first while delaying his personal plans. He was and is a lifesaver.”
