The medical staff at Riverside and the entire Ohio Health System is by far the best care that I have ever received. The staff and doctors were the most thorough and generous folks. I would highly recommend Riverside and Ohio Health to everyone.

When I was initially diagnosed I could not walk. Since having surgery I can walk and I am starting to get back to normal. Dr. Bonasso is an excellent surgeon and I would refer him to anyone suffering from back issues.

When I came to see Dr. Bonasso he provided options with benefits and risk and I chose to move forward with surgery. The surgery was successful and the benefit was tremendous. My pain after surgery is minimal and the nerve pain is gone.

Dr. Bonasso used his knowledge and prior experiences to his upmost potential. Dr. Bonasso has a kind but straight forward approach to his 'bedside manner', which we gratefully appreciated! Highly recommended! Thank you.

I had neck and back pain for years. He fixed my neck first and the scar is not very noticeable. He agreed to fix my back two weeks later and I have not had any pain in my back or neck since. In fact the surgery also fixed my finger and other areas of my body. I feel like a young woman now.

Horrible visit. Did not explain anything about my condition to me. And when I asked questions he seemed offended and made me feel stupid. If you're looking for a doctor who sits down and thoroughly talks to you and listens, this is NOT the one.

After being referred by a spine specialist, Dr. Bonasso entered the room announced he could not help me and left the room. I was shocked since I was told by the spine specialist (another OhioHealth provider) that surgery was my only option given the stenosis and pain in my neck. Bonasso referred me to a "motion specialist" with whom I cannot get into see until October. Further, if my difficulties are caused due to problems in the cervical spine, I can't imagine how I will get lasting relief from a "motion specialist".

Took a month or so to get an appointment. Less than 24 hours before the appointment, his staff calls to reschedule. The appointment was for the same day at a later time. I had to hurry to change child care arrangements and change my work schedule. Showed up and door signs aren’t clear. Stood at the wrong desk for several minutes (very busy office) to check in before I was directed to the right desk. There I was told the doctor had just left for surgery and it was my fault for being late (which was actually time spent waiting at the wrong desk). I can only imagine how rushed my appointment with him would have been if my appointment was scheduled right up against the time he was scheduled to do surgery. Very unprofessional.

I am very pleased with how fast Dr. Bonasso took action on my behalf. I had been down to very minimal to almost no movement due to the severity of my back pain. My first visit with Dr. Bonasso led to being admitted to be prepped for surgery the next morning. Less than 24 hours my surgery was done. I felt immediate relief. Absolutely grateful. Thank God for Dr. Bonasso.
