When spinal injections no longer helped I found myself faced with spinal surgery. I was hesitant about back surgery but was in enough pain that I was willing to take the chance. Dr Giannakopoulus never pressed the issue and let me make my own decision to go forward with surgery. He patiently explained what he would do, what he could and could not "fix".I left the hospital the next day feeling much improved. I would recommend Dr Giannakopoulos to anyone. He is truthful, caring, and efficient!

Dr. G first saw me in the ER. His approach to patients is tremendous, kind and understanding. He was very thorough, showing me my MRI and explaining what had happened to my back and exactly what he was going to do to help me. Believe me, back surgery was the last thing I ever wanted to have to go through, but Dr. G settled any fears I had, skillfully preformed the surgery and has been following up with care and concern for my recovery, as well as for me as a person. Thank You Dr. G and staff.

This Dr was a blessing for our family. Our son was in a near fatal motorcycle accident leaving his L4, L5 totally shattered, amongst other injuries. Dr G had to repair the spinal cord sac, repair vital nerve endings, some were totally severed beyond repair. Also rebuilt the L4, repair L5 and other relative vertebrae. His demeanor was upfront, honest, yet hopeful. With intense therapy, our son went from wheelchair, to walker, and is now using a cane with assistive leg braces! God Bless this man!!

When I was first referred to to Dr. G. I could not stand for more than 1 of 2 minutes I had to sit or at least lean on something. I now have NO back pain at all I do have have leg issues due to the damage which occurred due to the length of time before I was sent to Dr. G. and properly diagnosed and treated. I would and often do recommend the doctor to anyone with spine issues.

Called for appointment, gave person insurance card and numbers. She made sure I was covered and we made appointment. It was 3 weeks out, and they sent me papers to fill out and bring. I also got my MRI disk, Medical Records from previous Doctor, and all current blood work. Was so excited to get to my appointment. Went there and was told sorry, we do not take your insurance. Was told they called me, they did not! Would not recommend them! In extreme pain, not happy. No one called me!

I recently had lower back surgery done. My man lie to my face before the surgery lied after the surgery even aligned on what he submitted to the hospital and did not provide follow-up care. I've been warned by other people about him and didn't listen if you're a big fan of pain this is your doctor
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr. Giannakopoulos was pleasant to talk with, and answered all of my questions. He took extra time explaining the detailed views of my MRI and treatment options. I would definitely recommend him to a friend or family member.
