Dr Jallo did surgery on my spine for a tumor he is so kind and considerate . His bed side manners are the Best! I would strongly recommend Dr Jallo and his wonderful Staff. he is a doctor who cares what you have to say and helps you understand what the surgery was about and why you need to follow instructions after the operation. his staff always calls back and helps you get thru the difficulties of major back surgery.

Dr. Jallo took the time to review the MRI images while thoroughly explaining the state of my cervical spinal cord. Dr. Jallo's solution was cervical laminectomy with spinal fusion. I was very hesitant about having the spine fused. Dr Jallo used the MRI images, spinal models and one of his students to illustrate why spinal fusion should be part of the surgical solution. I m very grateful that he took the time to explain this to me. The surgery by it's nature is very painful. Dr. Jallo's skills, and those of his team, were able to mitigate the pain to a significant degree. I would be doing a great disservice if I did not heap boatloads of praise on the Nursing staff at the Neuroscience Center; especially the 7th floor nurses and students whose angelic work helped me through the first few days of my recovery. Thank you!

I've had surgery twice with Dr. Jallo and both times the results were excellent. My quality of living has increased tremendously! I can't thank him enough for all he as done in the past 5 years. He has always listened to my concerns, made sure I fully understood the procedure, the after care, and always made me feel that I was in the best care possible. I was. Though I hope to never need his services again should the need arise for me, I would call him immediately. I highly recommend Dr. Jallo!!

Dr. Jallo met and exceeded my expectations. He and his staff were professional and compassionate and did everything possible to give me the reassurance I needed before during and after my lumbar fusion surgery. I can't recommend him and his staff more highly.

I went to Dr. J after several years of chronic pain (along with a few unrelated problems) he explained in great detail what my symptoms were, why i was getting them along with the Pro's\Cons of surgery. He's calm, cool and collected, knows his stuff! 6 months PO from Cervical Fusion and i feel like a new man! Thank you!

From day one my experience with Dr. Jallo and his team has been nothing short of excellent. Dr. Jallo was a pleasure to 'work' with and his skills as a surgeon exceeded my expectations. His first diagnosis was correct and he was very flexible in reconsidering his initial recommendation of a 4 level fusion. Allison was so professional as well as responsive to my every need or request. Follow appointments were always on time and feedback/education was very much appreciated. I would recommend people to Dr. Jallo even if they didn't have cervical issues. :) My thanks to the entire team and to Jeff.

The staff and drs and nurse are the highest quality skilled and trained staff in their field. The patient is well taken care of and prepared for surgery and recovery. I am pain free, and my urinary incontinence has been healed as a result of my spinal surgery. I have recommend Dr. Jallo and Jefferson to my friends and family.

I saw Dr Jallo for an issue with my back that I needed surgery for. He educated me on my options and expected outcomes of surgery. He took his time and answered all of my questions. Surgery was a success and I am very pleased with the outcome.

I limped into Jefferson Navy yard with severe sciatic nerve pain that had been plaguing me for years. I would have to wake up to move in bed and find a comfortable spot. My social life was next to none. I was basically a flamingo, standing on one leg because the pain was so bad. I had surgery with Dr. Jallo on 6/13/19. Best decision I ever made was to visit Dr. Jallo. He gave me my life back!! I walk my dogs for miles, I sleep sound throughout the night, I’m going out and enjoying time with friends but the best part is no more pain!!! I’ve never met a doctor that listened to the patient about them. Not just talking about what the procedure will be like, but asking them about what their plans are and what their goals are. Dr. Jallo gets to know you on a personal level which is rare these days.

Dr Jallo was amazing. After seeing three different doctors who gave me three different diagnosis and sent me on my way with no long term fix but pain meds. Dr Jallo explained everything I had in detail and explained the procedure to where I could understand it. He and his staff were very polite and responsive. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact a few of my family members have all been to see him.

I am two years after microdiscectomy with dr. Jallo and I have more pain since the surgery then before. Before the surgery I had pain in the back of my legs, since the surgery I have burning pain on the top of my feet and front legs up to the knee as well. I cant wear socks or anything tight on my feet since the surgery. I was told by doctor before the surgery that it can only get better after or stay the same. I regret having this surgery. I am young and slim person and I am considering another surgery with different doctor.

Very honest. Expectations are based on probability with no promises. Explains the surgical plan in as much detail as you can handle and answers all questions commensurate with you understanding of medical terms. Honestly explains the unpredictable outcomes verses the predictable outcomes. He came highly recommended from my prior neurosurgeon who no longer accepts Medicare. I would highly recommend Dr. Jallo . I never really needed an urgent appointment so I didn't answer that question.

I saw Dr Jallo for a consult because I was having pain from my buttocks to my foot for several months. I had a large herniated disc L-4 L-5. He recommended a micro dis- ectomy to repair the herniation. I had the surgery and the pain was gone within several hours. My recovery went well and just had my last visit 8 week post op with him and everything looks good, now have to do some physical therapy to strengthen my core. He is a very gentle, kind and answered all my question highly recommend

I had L4-L5 microdisctectomy with dr Jallo and after three months I still have more pain in different places than before the surgery. I wish I havent done this op. I was just so convinced by the 90% of positive outcome, up to three weeks recovery, thats what I heard from dr Jallo and his doctors so I decided to do it. I wish I have heard the real side effects before the surgery.
