About Stephen A. Brigido

Philosophy of care

I will offer comprehensive care of the foot and ankle by integrating conservative care, rehabilitation, and surgery of the foot, ankle, and leg. My team – including my nurse, surgical fellow and staff – will complement the care provided to all patients.

Why I entered medicine

The diversity of patients needing help was the main reason as to why I chose foot and ankle surgery as my path. Pediatrics, athletes, people with diabetes and patients who are suffering or have suffered from a traumatic injury all benefit from a foot and ankle specialist. I find this diversity rewarding on many levels, as each day provides new challenges.

Community involvement

I am involved with St. Michael The Archangel School and the community organization, First Tee of the Lehigh Valley and Berks.

Personal interests

Outside of work, I enjoy all sports.

Professionally, I enjoy teaching and researching tissue scaffolds, biomaterials and cell therapy

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
