Dr. Iannotti performed surgery on my father and was successful in removing the tumor on his brain. However, this man has zero bedside manner. He is very arrogant and doesn't have the time to talk to the patient or the family. He is very good at making you feel that you are not smart enough to have a conversation with him. His office staff is just as bad; unhelpful. If you have a choice, I/we recommend you find a different neurosurgeon unless you like being degraded!

When I went to see Dr. Iannotti I was getting around using a wheel chair and a walker. This was during my initial consultation. I was refered by my physician for having lower back pain and leg weakness. After reviewing my MRI, DR. Iannotti told me of my condition and explained what needed to be done to correct that condition. He gave me options and I elected to have an operation that he preformed several times. This made me feel at ease to have the operation done. Excellent surgeon.

Tried to get an appointment. Was told first they need past medical records. Next, was told I needed a referral got that. Referral said self-pay told them I wasn't, they wouldn't call to confirm benefits, made me get insur co send fax. Finally, they said dr would review my file. Called and was told because I had previous surgery within a certain amt of time they wouldn't see me. wasted 6weeks, in pain, could have asked that questions on first phone call. Rude and uncaring staff.

Dr Iannotti gave me back some of my independence. He did not label me as a non-responder because i did not respond to procedure like control group. Followed his own protocol which led me to being qualified for a stint After a bad experience with Kaiser Duluth i did not know if I could trust doctors again. He has an awesome soul and is so humble both of which are priceless. Im so glad that I took a chance on him. In time I'm looking forward to regaining as much of my independence as possible.

Educates patients on disease/conditions needing surgery. Takes the time as needed to ensure understanding. Performed two spine surgeries and I recovered as expected. Only problem was not visiting post op as expected (his covering surgeon visited for a few seconds) but the his nurse practitioner was in and out, excellent coverage from her. All in All he is a darn nice guy and skilled. yes I would recommend.

Dr. Iannotti has been part of my team of doctors now since 2014. It's been a long road for me but through it all Dr. Iannotti has stayed up to date with my current health status and was very patient throughout the entire process. He is very honest, reliable and will explain in detail to help you understand his path to getting you healthy again. Dr. Iannotti recently performed a major surgery on me and throughout the entire process he was there with support for me and my family. Highly recommend!
