Very good doctor that doesn't beat around the bush. I had a discectomy done on a herniated disc (L5-S1) that needed surgery and went to Dr. Paonessa for a second opinion. From the start I knew he was the doctor I trusted most with the surgery based off what I had heard from others and reviews. I had the surgery done in May 2015 and it is now March 2016 I feel like a new person. This is the man you want to see!
