Chambersburg, PA |
Do yourself a favor and do NOT use this surgeon. His PA does all the office visits and it's a bother to the surgeon to see patients unless he's collecting money for an arranged surgery. He's dishonest and refuses to do any follow-up paperwork you may need. He performs only partial surgeries then later tells you that you need another surgery. He's a scam artist!

Dr. Caruso literally saved my life. He is a brilliant surgeon who truly cares for his patients.

I was diagnosed with meningioma and scared. I was introduced to Dr Caruso. As I shook his hand and he smiled I felt a sincerity and confidence that I will be ok and don’t be frightened. I had a long list of questions which he took his time to answer and made sure I understood what the procedure would entail. His warmth and patience made me feel I would be doing the right thing. If it wasn’t for him and the feeling of confidence and knowledge to do this surgery I wouldn't be here to write this.

Both Dr. Caruso and Gerald Frey, his physician assistant, are very knowledgeable and are readily available to speak with a patient and answer any questions.

First seen by Dr Caruso in 2009 for a herniated disc in my neck, my only option was surgery due to the severity of it, post ACDF surgery I had immediate relief, minimal pain and no infection, I was very pleased. I returned to him following a fall in 2012 which I needed to have a vertebroplasty of my lower back disc, he had the unpleasant job of having to tell me that a biopsy came back with cancer near the site, but he was so caring and got the treatment plan moving fast. EXCEPTIONAL/CARING Dr!

Needed immediate care/back surgery. Dr. Caruso scheduled surgery quickly and I realized immediate relief. Experience was entirely positive from his staff, facilities, procedures. Would highly recommend. Recovery is going well.
