I have been seeing Dr. G. for several years to mitigate severe pain in my neck. I have had many injections and also the newer Rhizotomy treatment which is the best. He has always been a superb caregiver and i would highly recommend him to anyone needing pain management 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!

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
