It is very bad to need brain surgery (in my case a nasty DAVF), but I consider myself lucky to have had the incredible care that I received. Eight weeks out and feeling very close to my old self. This is an amazing group of people. I am sure that I chose correctly and would absolutely recommend Dr Connolly and his team. I have no doubt that although recovering from brain surgery is difficult, it was much easier due to not only surgical skill, but also to the medical and especially the emotional support provided by Dr. Connolly and most remarkably Nurse Practitioner Evangeline Reyes-Pastorella, who is one of the kindest and funniest people I have ever met. I am no doubt a high maintenance patient (lots of fear, questions and family issues) which were all treated with remarkable respect and thoroughness not common in today's medical environment. Thank you Dr. Connolly and the entire team.

Through many recommendations and much research we put my care in the hands of Dr. Connolly and Dr. Feldstein. Their experience and knowledge guided them through my treatment and brain surgery.I could not recommend them more.I will be eternally grateful that I was taken care of and operated on by these two amazing doctors. In addition, it should be mentioned that in this practice they have a truly incredible Physician’s Assistant.Evangeline was knowledgeable caring and supportive through it all.

I had an appointment with a neurosurgeon in New Jersey. She told me that there was only one doctor that I wanted to go to for my condition - Dr. Connolly. I was scared for my life and my future, but Dr. Connolly immediately made me feel more at ease. He was humane and approachable in an office setting. My procedure went smoothly and my recovery has been almost miraculous.
