Hello, I am Dr. Guernelli. I am a Board certified physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist. It is my goal to help patients with pain of all types. My entire career is dedicated to caring for patients with Additional training and subspecialty certification in pain management allows me to create individualized treatment programs and approaches that can reduce and/or eliminate many types of common pain. I have vast personal experience in the orthopedic and neurosurgical specialties and know well what can and can't accomplished using standard techniques. There is a growing misperception in the medical community that most conditions can be treated and cured. I agree that there have been dramatic and amazing advances in medical science. However, many if not most of the conditions that we deal with on a regular basis are not curable, and in fact are chronic and persistent. That's why we are here. To help when every other doctor says there is nothing they can do. When they turn you away and say you should live with it. Walk it off. Just deal with it. We know you need help.

Dr. Guernelli is wonderful! He is quiet & calm, listens & is very compassionate! We have worked out plans, with procedures, P.T., & medicine when necessary. It's a continuous adventure, that we talk about & adjust! When my Husband was in the Navy, it was continuous moving & having to change Doctors. It is nice to have a caring Dr. that is part of my team, listens, understands & try's to work with me & actually help! Definite recommendation!

He used to be an excellent caring pain physician. But since he changed locations things are different.
in Ocala, FL |
I believe you should change your practice you are supposed to be an advocate for patients not for insurance companies I have current restrictions according to my disability but for some reason you took it upon yourself to change my permanent restrictions because an insurance company asked you to I have been seeing doctors for the last 8 years and none of them was willing or wanting to change my permanent disability restrictions maybe you should get out of the doctor business
Augusta, ME |
Very professional, very thorough when going over my mothers history. Helped her with her back pain and now she is able to do some of the activities she hasn't been able to do for years.
