I've been seeing Dr. Dilisio about my elbow issues for at least two or three years,the surgery performed on my left elbow was excellence, I have had no issues with my left elbow top and bottom sense. Right now we're addressing my issues on the underneath my right elbow. I love Dr. Dilisio,I would never go see anybody else.
