Dr. DeGenova is a no nonsense Doctor and is straight forward and to the point. He listens to what you have to say but if he can't help you he will refer you to someone that can. People mistake his confidence for arrogance. He is very confident & when I had surgery he assured me everything will be fine. He made sure to come talk to me and give me reassurance. I recommend him to anyone. If your seeking pain medication, go somewhere else because he's all about fixing the problem.

Dr. Degenova is just plain awesome. My husband got a neck fusion 10 years ago and another surgery December 21st 2015. Before the last surgery my husband was in excruciating pain for over 2 years and Dr. Degenova did a disk replacement after working with the insurance company and fighting for this to be paid for. After the surgery he still helped us dealing with the insurance company on all steps. I strongly recommend Dr. Degenova for all spine related issues many people have. Thank you so much!
Dr. G and staff are the greatest, all the way around!! Have gone to him for several years for different issues, everything ALWAYS goes the way he says. If you need to find a great ortho Dr. look NO farther.. . .
