      Was recommended by my family doctor. After 2 MRI had three appointments with him. He reviewed my condition and advised surgery. On my appointments I asked him show me on my body where you will perform surgery. The doctor did not touch my body but pointed to a statue and advised me to set appointment for surgery. How can I trust the doctor who can't listen or answer a very simple question! touch my back where you will perform surgery?

      He gave my mother MRSA during a lumbar fusion and she is in the hospital a 2nd time. He has not reached out to her since, only has staff contact her.

      I regularly recommend Dr. Citow for chronic neck or back pain. I had severe neck pain and Dr. Citow's cervical fusion not only relieved the pain, but my range of motion is around 96% (amazing since the orthopedic surgeon wanted to put in a cage which would have severely limited my mobility!) My mother-in-law also went to him for spinal stenosis. Both of our surgeries were outpatient procedures. She was able to go to a senior luncheon the day after her surgery! We all recommend him highly!!

      It was a lonnnggg office wait, however when I met Dr. Citow he apologized immediately, and was very cordial, lol we also had M*A*S*H in common (Hawkeye), since I was a HUGE fan of the show I barraged him with Hawkeye questions, and he got them ALL! So much for my crown of knowledge about the show, lol. He was my second opinion, my surgery from start to finish took 6 hours. Simply put? He's the best, and LOL he's KNOWS it, but he IS.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
