    I can't get in touch with anyone to schedule my surgery, otherwise I'm ok , he made me feel very comfortable at the consultation, not arrogant was a gentleman. Just wish they knew what to do with the paperwork & a response would be nice.

    Excellent communication and surgical result
    in Greenwich, CT |
    Upon learning of my original diagnosis from another doctor: spinal stenosis, partially herniated disc and foot drop, in late May 2015, Dr. Cammisa cleared his calendar, examined me, put me through pre-op processing and operated on June 19th. I went home two days later (Fathers Day). Before I went in I could barely walk, let alone stand up. In 60 days I was back racing my sailboat and now, a year later, I'm still doing great!

    DR. Cammisa has performed two major spinal surgeries, one in lumbar area and other in cervical. I walk without pain now, and endlessly. Tingling and pain in arm and shoulder gone and am confident can continue to turn my head enough to keep driving. He is an outstanding orthopedic surgeon, cautious and able and has to be very sure a procedure will help a patient before he proceeds. He also listens closely to the patient. I am immensely grateful to him for keeping me moving as a senior citizen!

    Was very receptive thoughtful and appeared highly competent.

    Absolute disaster. I would never go back to him. He is out of network and charges cash for a consultation. He literally said what he had to say and pushed us out of the office for his next appointment. the office is filled with resident doctors. I would never go back. He is not thorough on any level. I should have trusted the comments from health grades and never went back to see him.

    My problem was not resolved after my surgery with Dr. Cammisa's. There is no follow up with this doctor! He will never call you back or see you! You will only see his physician assistants who don't know very much & try to diagnose you! He is arrogant! Stay away!
