“I had an operation on my right foot/ankle two weeks ago at St Peters hospital. Surgery was successful and had my first office visit yesterday in Clifton Park. Dr DiPreta is an excellent doctor who has taken great care of me as he also operated on my left foot/ankle last January. The employees that I have come in contact with, especially Amy, Betty and Ernie are just wonderful people. I am so pleased to be under Dr DiPreta's care and for everyone else who has been taking care of me. The nursing staff etc at St Peters are very professional but also very nice and kind. Thanks to all for making my experience a pleasant one.”

“I returned to see Dr. DiPreta for an issue with my ankle as he had performed surgery on this ankle over 10 years ago. I am a chronically ill patient and have joint issues and he was so wonderful when I had my surgery and understood my health care issues then and felt confident in returning to deal with my problems now. He took x-rays and determined what may be wrong and acknowledged what I was doing with my PT and chiropractor were reasonable steps. I am following up with him soon. His friendly demeanor make it easy to discuss problems and put me at ease.”

“My first appt with Dr. DiPreta at first I was apprehensive and felt like he almost wasn’t interested, but when he left the room to look over my MRI and send me for an X-ray, he reentered as caring and explained everything to my daughter and myself.

I’m an advocate for your services has been a patient of, not only Dr. DiPrieta but also Dr. DiCaprio and Dr. Lawrence.”

“From start to finish Dr. DiPreta and all the staff at the Urgent Care were terrific. Wait time was brief. Moving from seeing the Dr. to X-ray, to being given instructions for a boot was met with professionalism, concern, support and just the right amount of humor to match my own. Breaking my first bone was a bit traumatic for me, but I felt like I was healing from the minute I walked through the door. Thank you to all!”
