Dr. Wakefield performed surgery on my back in November 2017. I am pain free for the first time in 20 years. The surgery was a major success! Dr. Wakefield was cautious in his approach, first trying less invasive procedures. Only performing surgery as a last resort. He is very professional as well as an excellent surgeon. I thank you, and my family thanks you. However, the front office is poorly managed. But if you can overlook that, you won't be sorry.

Dr. Wakefield and his staff are very caring and provide excellent patient care. Dr. Wakefield explains how your procedure will take place and if he feels that he can not help you to become better for having the surgery he will tell you right up front. I knew right away that I was in good hands for my back surgery . Bill Milette

I can honestly say that Dr. Wakefield is one of the best doctors I have seen of any specialty in my life. Took the time to explain things in language that anyone could understand. He preformed an emergency surgery for me. I would certainly recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

I have only good things to say about the care I received... from the front office staff who were warm and welcoming, to the consultation that was thorough, informative, and not rushed in any way; the surgery itself, that was not the awful experience I feared, and was 100% successful; and finally the recovery that was monitored and well managed. Dr. Wakefield, his PA Sean Brennan, and his entire staff, are professional, comfortable to talk with, and really know their stuff! Highly recommended

I just had my latest surgery with Dr Wakefield and I've had a few previous surgeries with him. He has always taken time to explain procedures and options He even rearranged his schedule to fit my surgery in before my insurance changed. I trust Dr Wakefield fully and I recommend him highly. His staff are all friendly and helpful. I put my full trust in him.

I met Lauren, the PA, at Dr Wakefield's office first. She was professional and personable. Being personable and caring is very important to me. Then I met Dr. Wakefield- top notch! He cared about me as a person and listened to my concerns. He did not rush me out of the office. An excellent surgeon! His office staff is excellent also. Professional! I would recommend him to everyone!
in Rocky Hill, CT |
In March of 2016, I went to Dr. Wakefield and his assistant Lauren Sawarynski with terrible low back pain and pain running down the back of my left leg. After examining my MRI, Dr. Wakefield told me he could take care of my issues without fusing me. In early August of 2016, Dr. Wakefield operated on me and decompressed my pinched nerve, removed a large bone spur, and widened the canal that my nerve root exited my spine through! My leg pain disappeared immediately and my back is much better!

One of the most professional and experienced surgeons I have met.Very Conservative which was appreciated. Eventually had surgery after all Conservative treatment failed.. Excellent surgeon and his PA are extremely professional and experienced. Pre and post surgery care was great.

So many people spoke highly of Dr. Wakefield, and was strongly recommended for me to see, even by my orthopedic surgeon. At first they were going to schedule an appointment for me to be seen, but I need to get clarity regarding insurance =. When I called back and resolved the matter, they stated that after reviewing my file it was to complex and they would not schedule an appointment, I was devastated. They did not even give me a chance to meet the doctor, disappointed.
I wouldn't even put one star if I had an option. He shouldn't be a doctor. He doesn't know how to read images at all!! Very Incompetent and lies right to your face. A real doctor looked at same images and said this person should have been in emergency surgery 3 weeks ago otherwise he can be paralyzed !!! Also found out from radiology he didn't even see correct image he only saw wrong part of body !! Karma !
