Great patient-doctor interaction. Great staff and support from them.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Ghiselli is an amazing surgeon who did 2 complicated multi facited cervical surgeries with many fusions posterior and saved my quality of life. I did my due diligence from 2 previous cervical fusions in S. Cal. Dr. Ghiselli credentials were approved by my Fathers Medical Expert who taught medicine at Stanford. He said, " Carl this is the guy who you want to do your Surgery." I have reffered Dr. Ghiselli to everyone I know who has our affliction of pain & numbness. He is simply the best!

Dr. Ghiselli is a stellar surgeon! I would recommend him to anyone that needs spinal surgery, I am grateful to have him as my doctor.

The first time I came in he said he could help me and my quality of life would improve, I was so elated I forgot to ask any questions! I called later to ask my questions and they actually suggested an APPOINTMENT so I could ask them in person with Dr. Ghiselli, very nice and helpful in every way.

Dr. Gheselli performed my 2014 cervical fusion. Due to apparent nerve damage, I lost function and strength in left arm and hand. Only with much work have I regained mobility and some strength. I am in chronic pain and need daily medication. Dr. Gheselli's treatment of me AFTER the surgery was worse than the surgical result. He seemed in denial that something had gone wrong, focused only on another (useless) surgery and was rude with me. Huge ego; small ears.
Patient Janice, age 56, recently wrote: "Dr. Ghiselli is a miracle worker since I did get pain relief after my surgery. It flared up again later and Dr. Ghiselli worked through a Plan B for me. He is still nice to me, sees me, and hasn't kicked me out of the practice, even though my flare up is a different issue and not something surgery can fix. He cares about me even though I am no longer a surgery case!"
