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.

I went in to see Dr. Jallo and it turned out he wasn't the right type of specialist for my condition, but I wanted to leave five stars anyway because he was an excellent listener and so patient with all of my questions. Other doctors could take a page out of his book in terms of bedside manners. Obviously I can't speak to how he practices medicine, but I can only imagine he's a great doctor as well. Thanks again, Dr. Jallo.

I came up from Costa Rica to have Dr Jallo perform my spinal fusion 2/17, and it was well worth it. Being my third orthopedic surgery, I have something with which to compare my experience. He and his staff have been superb since day 1. He put me at ease, connected personally, listened carefully, answered questions clearly, explained everything fully, inspired confidence in his ability to help me. I would heartily recommend him and his team, and will return to him for my next spinal surgery.

I am so pleased Dr. JALLO was recommended to me. He saw the urgency of my case and operated first thing the next morning. He was extremely nice and explained everything to me so that I could understand and was able to calm my nerves. His entire staff was equally as wonderful. I've been hospitalized 10 times and this was my best experience yet.

Disgraceful contact policy. My husband made a call to speak with him, regarding new onset of pain,(post op several weeks) first call took an hour for the phone to get answered, no response for several hours,made a second call this one took 1hour and 50 minutes before it was answered.Still no return call that day. Left e-mail message that night. Next day only 20 minutes to get the phone answered,same receptionist.He was informed it could 72 hours to get a return call.THIS IS THEIR POLICY-NOT OK

I first had a major head trauma emergency surgery. A few months later I had surgery to replace part of my skull that needed to be temporarily removed. Both surgeries went amazingly well, with quick recovery . My head looks great considering all I went through. Pain was minimal . Dr Jallo is very pleasant , listens , doesn't rush and is very skilled. His team has also been very nice and helpful through this entire process.

Dr Jallo was the third Dr I spoke to about needing spinal fusion. He provided more information and in a simpler format then any of the others. He also provided options the others never mentioned as even being a possibility. He was so easy to talk to, made me feel comfortable and really cared about my concerns, especially about recovery

I can?t say enough good things about Dr. Jallo and his team. He presents as a very smart, inviting and caring personality. He took great pains to explain to me what my diagnosis meant and what would be involved in the surgical procedure. He was completely upfront with me. regarding the procedural risks and potential outcome good or bad.I spent many hours researching potential surgeons. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Jallo.
