The spinal fusion I had done absolutely helped me. It did give me a little more mobility than I had prior to the surgery. Dr. Bonasso is awesome as well as his staff - also kind and courteous.

I went for back issues. He didn’t like the MRI I had done. Ordered a new one. Follow up he was arrogant and didn’t even show me my MRI to let me see. I went to him yrs. ago at that time he said I needed rods. This last visit he spent maybe 5 minutes with me. Asked how the severe problems changed. He said they didn’t. Dismissed any questions I had. Terrible patient communication. Would not recommend to anyone.

Dr. Bonasso was amazing from the start. Very personable. Explained everything. Made me feel comfortable. After my CSF flow study he called me personally after office hours. My surgery went great. I am beyond happy. All the staff was great. I feel like a new person. It has only been 4 weeks and people are shocked at how great I am doing. Amazing surgeon and excellent beside manner. So thankful for him and giving me a pain free life.

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!
