He did a spinal fusion on me years ago. I’ve had another since then an numerous consults since. He left me with a numb foot up to the ankle and chronic pain going down my leg from a leaking Duran sac. When I tried to go back to see him he wouldn’t even accept private pay just blocked my visit. He ruined my life because at this point I am basically disabled and begging anyone to fix his massive mistakes. Find anyone else.

Excellent!! Dr Chimemti has performed 18 spinal surgeries on me between 2005 & 2017. He performed anterior & posterior fusions from L1-L5/S1 and from T6-T12 posterior fusions. He also removed two spinal fluid tumors and drained the spinal fluid. I also had 2 spinal cord stimulators installed but failed. He has done a lot of great things for me and never gave up on him and I will continue to use him because he is the very best.

Dr Chimenti was our hero. He was instrumental in the successful brain surgery for my brother. Besides his amazing knowledge of the brain and how to succeed in removing a tumor, he is uplifting and motivational to the recovery of the patient (my brother). I can’t thank him enough for his strength, skill, knowledge and bedside manor for our family. He truly is my savior as my brother is my twin. Thank you Dr Chimente!

I was referred to Dr. Chimenti by a pain management specialist after almost one year of visiting Doctors to find out what was wrong with me after an accident. One neurosurgeon wanted to fuse C/5-5, C/6-7. Dr. Chimenti performed a C/5-6 fusion only. Had I undergone the double fusion I would not have had much turning function and added future risk of adjoining joint dysfunction. I had two other surgeries relating to accident, each one including cervical I felt at ease and confident. Thank you
