What People Say About Dr. Debra Petrucci, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Dr Petrucci was the 4th Neurosurgeon I consulted regarding a spinal fusion after a severe disc herniation. She is the ONLY doctor who took the time to explain (in layman's terms) what she was seeing on the MRI/X-rays, and go into detail about what the prospects of surgery entailed. She never made me feel foolish for asking questions, and truly listened to my concerns. After surgery, I was in the hospital for 4 days and she came to check on me everyday. I cannot recommend her highly enough. A+++

Dr. Debra Ann Petrucci was my life saver, she performed spinal surgery almost 2 years ago and I am completely pain free with my mobility and able to walk and exercise on a regular basis. Dr. Petrucci is the best surgeon I could have ever wished for. She gave me back a quality of life that I didn't think I would ever have before her surgery. I highly recommended her for any spinal surgery.
