What People Say About Dr. Daniel Muccio, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I had a severe back condition where a disc broke off between L3 and L4 which floated and lodged against by Siatic nerve and spinal cord. Dr Muccio was straight forth with the options and the effects of each option. Dr Muccio diagnosed and worked with the insurance company to expedite the surgery before any additional damage could happen. If you want a no nonsense, caring and highly skilled back surgeon that knows what he's doing, Dr Muccio is your man! I can't say enough how pleased I am.
