Dr. Traina is an exceptional surgeon who has my full faith and confidence. His office staff is outstanding as well.
in Palmetto Bay, FL |
My experience with Dr. Traina was excellent. He was highly recommended by my primary care and neurologist. On the first visit he explained the problem with my spine and agreed with the neurologist that the only fix was surgery, which he was able to schedule within days. Surgery was successful, pain is completely gone and I never took any pain medication post-op. I was back to my daily bike ride in less than a week. Two weeks later I am back my normal routine. Miraculous recovery.

Poor bedside manner. Does not appear to really care about helping.

Not what I was expecting.
