Dr. DiIorio Helps Dancer Recover from Knee Injury
“ I 've been Dr. DiIorio's patient since 2005 for a knee injury. I was very pleased with how he treated me. He explained everything so I could understand what he was talking about. I did not have to feel embarrassed or nervous when I asked questions regarding my injury and the treatment option plan. He was very kind and caring as well. I would never hesitate to recommend Dr. DiIorio as a doctor and as a teacher. He is excellent with teaching and presenting the material to the audience ("Art of Medicine" Show). Thanks to Dr. DiIorio I am continuing to dance and lead an active life. ”

“ Albert Abrams.... I think he is the best rheumatologist in the Lehigh Valley. He is caring and always ready to talk to you. Stress can causes flairs in your arthritis and lead to joint destructions. He always makes you feel that you are the only patients he has in the office. His staff is so helpful. I am a remicade patient. So I am in the office about 3-4 hours a months. It is amazing things you see sitting there for 3 hours. I also had a total knee replacement that Dr. Dilorio did for me. He was wonderful. I have complete range of motion in my knee. No more pain. ”
Doctor who helps Coordinated health to be truly “Better Together”
“ I first came to Coordinated health in 2005 when I injured my right knee. I was treated by Dr. Diiorio. He treated me with respect, care and understanding. He was very patient with me and took the time to explain everything to me.Dr. Doherty came highly recommended to me by a few people I knew. I started seeing her for routine check ups and when I was not feeling well in 2014. She has been my Primary Care Physician since March 2014 and I continue to see her for check ups. She has always been caring and patient with me. She took her time to put me at ease and explained everything so I would understand what I needed to know. She never rushed through any of my appointments. Along with Dr. Diiorio, Dr. Doherty is a wonderful asset to Coordinated Health. ”
