Dr. Iorio was the best doctor that I’ve ever had. He’s not intimidating whatsoever. He knows exactly what he’s doing and I highly recommend him as your physician.
in Binghamton, NY |
Knows his stuff. Super nice. Very good at listening to my problem. Was able to help me and direct me to NY spine and wellness where I received a lumbar epidural. So much better than surgery. Thank you!
in Syracuse, NY |
Most recent visit was a follow up to my surgery in December. All my questions were answered by staff and Dr. Iorio. No problems with surgery to date - and outcome as Dr Iorio indicated pre-surgery. Would recommend this physician to anyone needing spinal surgery!
North Syracuse, NY |
I have sought help from other providers for my back/neck pain, but in my very first visit with Dr. Iorio, I REALLY learned the cause of the pain, which none of the other providers had explained. He also did a physical exam, which also had not been done before, and really seemed to care about me and my situation. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, expertise, interest and caring as well as explaining his recommended treatment. EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE FOR ME FROM AN OUTSTANDING PHYSICIAN!
in NY |
Great bedside manner. It turned out I didn't need surgery and we were both pleased with this. He tppl his time and found the best solution to the problem rather than cutting on me.

After many bad experiences- uncaring Doctors who did not listen and rushed to pass me off, I was very grateful to finally be referred to Dr. Iorio. He cared, listened, and delved into the problem to try and help me. My surgery went very well and I am pleased. He is caring, professional, and skilled. I highly recommend Dr. Iorio.

Dr. Iorio removed a cyst from my spine and it turned my life around! I could barely use my leg for months and then with one small incision he gave me a pain-free life back. I would recommend him to anyone with back problems.

in New Woodstock, NY |
My experience was outstanding. I highly recommend him. When I first met with him, I appreciated him truly listening to my concerns, his compassion, directness and clarity. His office is very efficient and helpful. He has a lovely nurse and surgery scheduler. My surgery went exactly as he told me it would and I was home the same evening. I am grateful to no longer being in very harsh levels of pain.

in Camillus, NY |
Very professional. All aspects of my medical care were addressed to my full satisfaction. After my first meeting with Dr. Iorio I had complete confidence that if I needed surgery after further diagnostics, he would be my surgeon. Excellent. Would recommend to anyone.

I have suffered with degenerative disc disease with herniations of l3-l4, l4-l5, and l5-s1 for years.. facet joint injections, caudal epiduralS, medication etc barely able to walk to my mailbox without legs locking up.. 1st visit with Dr Iorio, he actually went over my mri with me, and surgery was scheduled for 6 days later. Since surgery, (4 months) I have walked close to 200 miles!! I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Iorio!!!

I would highly recommend Dr.Iorio. He takes the time to listen and explain everything so I could understand. He is very knowledgeable and I felt comfortable with him the first visit. He is very personable and great bed side manners!!!!! A+++ Doctor!!!!
in Pennellville NY |
My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Iorio, he is absolutely wonderful. After my husband went to numerous doctors for his back/leg pain with no results he found Dr. Iorio who helped him tremendously. I then started with back/leg pain also and he took me right in and was very helpful with my problems. We are still working on getting my pain better, but it is so much better. Thank you so much.
in Baldwinsville, NY |
He is innovative, personable, good sense of humor but most importantly professional. He goes out of his way to make sure you are doing good before, during and after surgery. Doesn't have a staff member call but calls himself. Very Impressive. Gives you alternative advice and suggestions while you are trying to decide right way to go. He does not pressure you and allows you all the time you want and need in making that decision. I cannot say enough good about him. Thank you Dr. Iorio.
