“Dr. Kingston is very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful in my diagnosis and treatment. The therapy group did outstanding work in rehabilitating my knee. They were patient, professional, very courteous, and fun to work with. I was completely satisfied and quite impressed with my experience at Tidewater Orthopaedics from the beginning to completion.”

“This is the third time Dr. Campolattaro has performed hand surgery on both my hands for trigger fingers. From my first visit to my last (two weeks ago) my experience with him and the staff has been wonderful. Dr. Campolattaro, Gabby, and his nurse assistant have been kind, gentle, great at explaining what is happening and have a perfect bed side manner. I recommend Tidewater Orthopedic to everyone! I will continue to use them in the future. I still have a couple of fingers that could trigger. I am grateful to have a practice that is dedicated to the well being of its patients, compassion, and their attitudes that show they care.”

“Dr. Campolattaro is very caring, and has a great bedside manner! I'm pretty certain most of these surgeries can become routine, but he didn't make me feel that way. He took great care in explaining everything. I felt like a patient should feel, not like I was in an assembly line.”
