The doctor and his staff are not very good.Impossible to have a short talk with Doctor,refuses to take phone calls,and lost all compassion for seniors- find another doctor.The receptionists are rude and should be replaced which seems to happen a lot.

Dr Vilasuso is a wonderful, kind and caring person. He listens to my concerns and explains his treatment in language I can understand rather than using medical terms. He is very professional and trustworthy.

I am writing this review on behalf of my friend Helen, a patient of Dr. Vilasuso for over 3 yrs. I have accompanied her on every visit & I can assure you our opinions of Dr. V. are one & the same. Dr. Vilasuso is just exceptional! He is knowledgeable, caring, professional, & compassionate. He spends quality time examining, listening, & explaining the best treatment options for pain management. Dr. V makes you feel at ease with his excellent bedside manner. His kindness & genuine sincerity are qualities so needed & appreciated by patients who are suffering with chronic pain.We have always been met with cordial & pleasant staff members at her appointments & we highly recommend Dr. Vilasuso!!

I had a neuro modulator permanently implanted and the pain relief is 95 to 100 percent. This is life changing. I thank Dr Vilasuso for his expertise and skill. Dr Vilasuso has my highest recommendation.

I simply don't recommend this Dr. He's taking more patients than he can humanly handle. My husband had an appointment for 10:00 A.M. today but, by 11:45,we were still waiting in the examining room. We had to leave and ask for the co-pay to be refunded to our credit card. His facilities are not what you would expect ;it is depressing, too many patients and few sitting spaces; dogs (any kind) are allowed in the facilities; personnel not too pleasant.

Dr. V is the best pain doctor I ever had. On my first visit I knew he was a GREAT DOCTOR WHO CARED ABOUT HIS PATIENTS. I had back and leg pain for over 15 yrs. Seeing him help a great deal. He was always caring and helpful.

Dr. Javier Vilasuso and Dr. Francisco Vilasuso saved my life! What more can I say? I just let everyone that suffers from chronic pain and don't feel like living anymore. Stop thinking that way because of all the other unqualified Doctors that have no idea what they are doing.. Dr Javier Vilasuso is a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Now located in Tamarac, FL. Next to University Hospital I'm medical building . I am finding his # now
