Dr. Curletta and Green are caring. Without their help, my knee pain would make my walking and living difficult.

Dr. Curletta does not listen. His office staff is terrible. I told him I did not want drugs. I told him I have an allergy to codeine. He instead gave me a drug to put inside my cheek & said I would not have a reaction. I took it the first night & got a horribly upset stomach & a total migraine. When I went online to look at the reviews of course it had codeine in it. I was set for surgery on Nov 10 for a spinal cord stimulator. His Scheduler Katie calls me the Fri before at 3:45 to tell me the ins is not in order. I was on the phone for one hr 4 and minutes with my ins co & they called her and straighten it out, guess that wasn’t good enough because Mon at 4:45 I got canceled anyway. Rescheduled surgery for Tue, Dec 8. Once again idiot Katie calls Fri Dec 4 at 315 to say she cannot find the psych evaluation that was done on Sat Nov 4, talk to the office mgr who promised to get this done by the end of the day Fri. It is now Mon at 12:40 PM still haven’t gotten a call from anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr Curletta for approx. 16 years. With a chronic, progressive condition that causes considerable pain, I am blessed to have such a fine physician. His knowledge, compassion and professionalism have a great deal to do with why I am still functioning as well as I am. I trust him completely. It’s comforting to know that if any issue arises between scheduled appointments, he is a phone call away. In addition, he expects the best from his staff, and they don’t disappoint. This team is what “health care” should be. They truly CARE about my HEALTH.

The corona virus prevented me from having my ablation therapy 6 weeks ago. The pain was so great during that time. Dr Curletta let me have the procedure right after it was allowable again. I am now comfortable and grateful to the doctor
