      My experience with Dr. Sanelli has been phenomenal!!!!!! He treated me with two epidurals in 2009 that lasted seven years and just treated me with two epidurals again in 2016 that resulted in total 100% relief from sciatica symptoms. He is thorough, professional and totally competent in pain management treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sanelli.

      Dr. Sanelli is a very nice doctor. He believes in conservative treatment and took his time to explain everything to me thoroughly. The office is very clean, prompt and responsive.

      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.
