Review of Dr. Kenning

- in Virginia Beach, VA |

Dr Kenning is amazing. Last Monday he removed a pituitary tumor thay had hemmorhaged on my husbands brain and was effecting his left eye. He was ectremely thorough and explained the entire process to us in depth the evening before surgery. I have never felt so safe with a doctor performing a procedure. He is an expert at what ge does and takes all necessary precautions to make sure things go smoothly. He is the best neurpsurgeon im the Albany area.

Review of Karen Petronis


I've seen Karen and this practice many times. They are amazing from the minute you call to the minute you walk out the door. Their assistant knows what she's doing and gets everything done quick. I think everyone just needs to remember this is still a specialist office and their are other patient's I know just the few times I've had to call in an issue it was dealt with right away even when I left a voice mail. I give Dr. DiRisio and his team 1000% thank you all!

Review of Dr. Kenning

- in Kinderhook, NY |

I recently had a surgery, preformed by Dr.Kenning, to remove a pituitary tumor. Vision was deteriorating almost daily and noting the urgency, he took my case on with a vengeance. Having an MRI on a Monday, he had 5 other tests pushed together and operated 9 days later. Sight is restored and healing continues. His calm, assuring professionalism and competency are only eclipsed by his bed side manner. He was involved completely and continues to respond to questions and follow ups personally.

Review of Dr. Pilitsis

- in Glenmont, NY |

Dr Pilitsis placed the first DBS for OCD and panic disorder in my daughter. She follows her patients closely and knows them well. She explained all the risks but my daughter felt she had no choices left. Dr Pilitsis and her team are excellent. She gave my daughter a chance to live and be happy.

Review of Dr. Yamamoto

- |

Dr. Yamamoto saved my life in 2016. He removed a golf ball sized meningioma brain tumor from my frontal lobe. I was diagnosed quickly so we did not have time to research neurosurgeons. He was recommended by my neuro opthamologist. The surgery was long and complicated, but he was able to remove the complete tumor. He's a live savor!

Review of Dr. Semenoff

- in Willsboro, NY |

Dr. Semenoff is, what I refer to him as, a miracle worker! He rescued me! I couldn't walk, stand, lay down without terrible pain. I can now ski, bicycle, walk, run, just amazing. I suffered for 2 years before I was brave enough to have surgery. I should've done it sooner. He also, is the nicest, most caring doctor I've ever come across! Just fabulous!

Review of Dr. German

- in Glenmont, NY |

I was very pleased with the entire process from beginning through post op follow up with Doctor German and his staff. The surgery went well with minimum hospital stay. I am in my third week of recovery and back to work on a part time basis. My leg pain and foot numbness has been erratic acted. Minimal soreness remaining in the area of surgery. I would highly recommend this surgeon.
