Patient Comments (5)

I had agonizing sciatica. Within one week Dr. GItelman saw me, expedited an MRI which disclosed a synovial cyst and called an ad hoc consult with Dr. Illig to discuss treatment options. I was not pressured for surgery, all of my options were explained and future considerations discussed. The level of professionalism and responsiveness is excellent and assistance with pain management very prompt. The entire group practices is exceptional.

I had surgery with Dr. Gitelman several years ago. I never felt pressured to have surgery and we tried other options (PT, pain management) before making a final decision. I have since seen him for other issues and would highly recommend anyone to his care.

The decision to haveI spinal surgery did bot come easy. Dr. Gitelman lived up to the trust I felt in his experience and expertise. The surgery was a complete success. No more excruciating pain! I'm singing his praises and highly recommend Dr. Gitelman to anyone suffering from spinal problems. M. Knehans
