My chiropractor recommended Dr. Nardone when he was no longer able to help me. Dr. Nardone took the time to show me my MRI, explained the complications of my situation, provided his recommendations and risks involved. The procedure we chose, he replaced 3 discs in my neck with cadaver and a metal plate was screwed in above and below discs to help the bones fuse together. Immediately headaches and my arm pain went away and within 2 months all pain was gone. Forever grateful for his healing gift

Dr Nardone did chiari malformation decompression surgery on me in Nov, 2016. The experience was very positive and I had a fabulous outcome. One thing that really impressed me was the day after surgery his resident saw me in the a.m. and said Dr Nardone would check on me that afternoon. That evening, the nurse came in my room with a phone and said Dr Nardone wanted to speak to me. He apologized, a surgery had gone long, but he wanted to make sure I was OK and asked if I had any questions.

Dr. Nardone and his Staff at Sara bush was great I had went to other Doctors for 3 years and with in 3 moths I am pain free in my back

I had been suffering from arm pain from a herniated disc in my neck for years after doing some checking I decided to see Dr. Nardone. He explained to me exactly what the MRI showed and even showed me on the MRI where the problem was. I decided to go ahead with the procedure. I'm so glad I did, the relief was immediate. I haven't felt this good in years. Dr. Nardone in my opinion is an expert. I can't thank him enough for giving me back my life!

When I found I had severe back issues, one requiring surgery, we chose Dr. Nardone. My wife has worked in the medical field for 37 years and would not consider anyone else for me but Dr. Nardone. His office staff, the hospital staff and Dr. Nardone were amazing! Dr. Nardone explains everything in detail and "tells it like it is". He listens. The surgery went extremely well. For post op I did exactly as he advised and began walking 1/2 mile the next day pain free. I highly recommend him!!

My husband had a procedure done. Operating room tech came to talk to me - no doctor. Proceeded to give me report in front of every one sitting around me...no privacy. Took several calls to schedule the procedure from primary care physician. Just received a recorded message in regards to follow up appointment.

From me first visit to my last post op visit he and his staff have been top notch. I had a discectomy done and recovery was quick and I'm enjoying life again! My only regret is not seeing the Dr. A year sooner.
Charleston, IL |
Saw the old injury from years ago then ragged on me about my medications. Would not let me tell him that I had two recent falls in past 7 months or that I had gone through open heart surgery on the same medications. I was in so much pain I just didn't feel like arguing with him. I felt he showed me no respect or considered my extreme pain. I have been bedfast since the second fall. what angered me most is that he assumed he knew my condition and would not let me say anything but answer his ?
in Mattoon, Illinois |
Dr Nardone is caring, kind and I'm so blessed to have found him. He is the best surgeon by far.
in Bloomington, IL |
doesn't listen to his patients. When he did my surgery I didn't see him before or after the surgery. He lets his residents do all the work. And doesn't explain the procedure or explain after-care.
