Dr. Gorelick did a great job and I am so very thankful that I met her and I recommend her to anyone. I had surgery on my back and was able to walk same night. She is very best before,after my surgery my x-rays were reviewed and explain to me very professional environment .

In Oct 2016 I had a laminectomy and fusion of my T10-11. I spend 3 days in Griffin Hospital. I was very happy with my surgical and hospital experiences. The surgery was to correct a worsening issue I was having with my right leg. I would highly recommend Dr. Gorelick.

Do not go to this doctor. She is a complete joke! My sister and I took our mother here for a really bad pinched nerve and bone spur in her cervical spine. She degraded my mother in front of us, asking her if she drinks or does drugs and then tried to say my mom had a mental issue. So we went and seen another doctor and turns out she needed surgery. C4, C5, C6, and C7 had to be fused. She is finally in recovery no thanks to this woman who calls herself a doctor

I can not say enough about Dr. Gorelick and her staff. I had severe sciatic pain and had had significant damage in my upper spine from previous accident. She ended up doing surgery on both areas in 2 separate operation with tremendous success. I am now pain free and without the limitations I had previously. Prior to each surgery she answered all of my questions including showing models of exactly what was going to happen. I could not have been more at ease with her and her abilities.

Despite not needing surgery, Dr. Gorelick took the time to explain my condition, which no other Dr. had. She offered me several non-surgical options including therapy and injections. Absolutely love this Dr. I have recommended her several times.

I felt comfortable and she took the time to explain. Very honest

If your goal is to go under the knife, this is the place to go. She will get you surgery quickly, but that is all she is concerned with.

Dr. Gorelick took my case...in less than 2 weeks I was on the operating table. My family and I had complete trust in her.
