    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. Thank God!! I was in so much pain (and I'm not a hypochondriac, a cry baby or a drug-seeker) that I couldn't even pinpoint where it was coming from. I wound up having a SLAP tear. Thank You Dr. Sanelli.

    Dr Sanelli took lots of time with me in explaining the plan of action to get me on the path of being pain free. He is very skilled with his injections. The staff is very helpful and always so pleasant. I highly recommend him to everyone.

    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.
