My concerns were explained clearly. The caring attention of everyone was very comforting. I had suffered many months of severe pain. Dr. Bonasso knew exactly what I needed and performed the surgery to fix the problem. He has been blessed by God, as he knew, planned, and performed the procedure. It was as if he had angels helping him. I am pain free today!!

Dr. Bonasso was wonderful! I had anxiety about my surgery and I didn't need to. Everyone I had talked to about him just raved so that relaxed me and boy were they right! He takes his time and makes sure all of your questions are answered. His staff is just as wonderful!

Best decision to have my back surgery. Dr. Bonasso knew exactly what I needed and my surgery was a complete success. I feel better now 4 1/2 months after my surgery than I have for the past 10 years.
