I recently saw Dr. Sanelli for a fall I sustained while on working hours. He was such a doll!! So thorough. Compassionate. Kind. Answered all questions I had confidently. Not only did he examine me for an injury to my neck but knew enough to send me to an orthopedist who specializes in shoulders....more
