I would highly recommend Dr. Criscuolo. He keeps his professional side while still being personally involved with ( me ) . Every appointment we discuss how I am feeling, any changes in my physical abilities and most importantly, how the medications are working and whether to adjust dosages or not. Dr. Criscuolo takes an interest in my career as well and due to the physical nature of my job and age, is concerned but we always reach an amicable end to our discussions. He is very engaged.

I def will not be referring and friends to this man who treated me like I was a drug addict. I poured my heart out to this man and he asked me what was really going on. I will not be returning.

Same experience as many others. I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. I had tried many other pain management options including spinal blocks and prednisone injections. Another well respected pain management physician referred me to Dr. Criscuolo for pain management and he recommended acupuncture. Hesitant initially, I tried it and in only four sessions I felt like a new person. I have referred MANY people to his office.

I have been seeing Dr. Criscuolo for pain management for the past 2 years. He does not overmedicate or undermedicate for my condition and treatment of post radiation/cancer pain.

Dr. Criscuolo is the most outstanding pain management physician I have ever found. He has helped me with my cervical pain issue more than all the other physicians combined. I simply cannot recommend him adequately but I will say, if you are hurting and want relief, go see "Doctor Feel Good", Dr. Christopher Criscuolo. You will walk out with a smile and less pain every time.

I have severe Fibromyalgia, and I had been in pain for over six months with no “good days”. I also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I only had about four hours a day where I was able to function and do minimal activities. Just to take a shower was an event. I was had lost all hope of ever being the active, positive person I once was. Dr Criscuolo gave me acupuncture, and it changed my life. I am so grateful to him. Paula

Lies, doesn't put in his chart what he tells you. His nurses are the rudest unpassoniate people I've ever met. One hung up on me while asking about my chart. They do not listen!! Does not care! He proceeded to offer me the same muscel relaxer I told him every visit DOES NOT WORK! He had me try a tenz machine with a therapist. It was returned. He knew that. Next visit have you ever tried a tenz machine?! Wth!! I NEVER spent more than 5 min. In his office. Treated like a drug seeker. ZERO RATING!
