Would not recommend to my worst enemy. Recharged my insurance company over $200 for a create visit that lasted 3 minutes when he told me he was not going to do the procedure I was told I was having. And the procedure he wanted to do I had just had 2 weeks ago. He was very rude and arrogant; and he made me feel like I was lying about my pain. I have spinal stenosis w 2 herniated discs and 4 bulging discs in my neck none of which were acknowledged by him. Go anywhere but here...

I went to Dr. Crapanzano for severe neck and back pain. I had MRI images of my cervical spine, which he said showed nothing remarkable. He acted like I was attention seeking, when, actually, I had cervical spinal stenosis at 3 levels, which was significantly compressing my spinal cord. I eventually had a 3 level cervical spinal fusion done by an excellent neurosurgeon.

I had him do a procedure on my back which did absolutely no good. I get the bill from the hospital and his office. My insurance only paid half. Now I have to come up with nearly $1500. The hospital and his office are double billing me for the same thing. Beware before you decide to go and make sure your insurance will cover the cost or at least most of it. Once the procedure is done, it's done and you will be charged weather it works or not. You still got to pay.
