    This is the nicest doctors I have ever met. He took a lot of time to explain the treatment options, for my medical condition. I have been a nurse for 25 years and never met a more down to earth and knowledgeable doctor. His office staff and colleagues were also so kind and took a lot of time with me.

    Five years ago (2012) a tumor was discovered in my brain and an hour later I met Dr. D'Ambrosio. When he came into the ER to introduce himself to my husband and me and explain what was going to happen I felt completely at ease. I'll never forget him telling me, with a smile, "And I won't shave your head." Competence is expected. But Dr. D'Ambrosio goes beyond with his kindness, his obvious caring, and the way he makes you feel like you are his only patient. A gem!

    A very fine neurosurgeon. He is highly skilled, very thorough, and gives attention to details with precision. Best surgical experience ever! I will be always grateful to him for making such a wonderful difference in my life!
    in Paramus, NJ |
    Extremely knowledgeable and gifted.... and has the best personality to make you feel completely comfortable, confident and trusting in his expertise and your treatment. Upbeat and encouraging. Couldn't ask for a better Doctor.
    in Clifton, NJ |
    Truly a magnificent doctor, I can't begin to describe how this man saved my life! I was wheeled into his office after rupturing my L4 & L5 and severing my S2 & S3, which caused paralysis from my waste down, including loss of bladder and bowel function. After my surgery I was up walking around that night with the help of a walker, my prognosis 95% recovery!!!! 6 years and 1 month later I am running my first marathon, this fall! This man truly has the hands of an angel!
