I am an RN who suffered for years with back and neck pain. I have worked with many physicians/surgeons who I respect and trust. I have a family friend who suggested that I see Dr. Garonzik. I was able to see him within a very reasonable time period and unfortunately was told my best course was surgery. After receiving the same information from another MD, I had the surgery. He was compassionate, skilled and patient while I went through healing process. Recommend him with 100% confidence.

Dr. Garonzik is the most competent Neurosurgeon I have ever been treated by. He performed my 4th & 5th surgeries and gave me 10 years of normal active pain-free life. Due to a recent accident, he will be going #6 & #7. I have a lot of fears through these procedures but I trust Dr. Garonzik and his abilities unconditionally. I would recommend him to anyone who struggles to find freedom from chronic back pain. Thanks doc for everything you have done for me!!! I am externally grateful.

Had an appt. w/ Dr. Garonzik , severe pain in my left thigh, causing me to not walk well. Dr. Garonzik asked I get an MRI. I called his office 15 times, after 2 weeks to find the results. After 15 calls to the office he finally called me back 2 months later, I asked why it took so long to call me back and told him I called over 15 times. He hung up the phone. Nice Dr. Garonzik , very professional
