What People Say About Dr. Marcello Sammarone, MD

Dr. Sammarone is such an amazing caring doctor! So glad I found him! He always spends as much time as needed with his patients and is always trying to find a way to help! He also cares personally about his patients! Through my back pain I found out I had kidney cancer and Dr. Sammarone was always checking on me throughout my diagnosis as well as trying to help with my back pain. There aren't many doctors these days who go out of their way for patients and show a genuine interest in them!

After the passing of GP who had been treating me for app 6yrs, sadly & reluctantly found new Dr. who referred me to Dr Sammarone, sitting in waiting room, a woman comes out, says “1st visit”? I replied yes, She said you’re going to love him, he saved my life, and I’m not the only one. She was right. Dr Sammerone is terrific, has improved my quality of life tremendously, he’s gentle, compassionate, & he listens..Office girls, Carol and Karen… Couldn’t ask for better, they all go above & beyond

Having been in pain since May of this year, and having gone through chiropractic and physical therapy with little improvement, I was starting to give up hope. After meeting with Dr. Sammarone and starting treatment, I feel like a new man. I understand that not everyone will experience this, but I've had a dramatic reduction in the amount of back and leg pain after just one treatment. It enabled me to take my family on a trip and make some great memories. Thank you!

In brief, Dr. Sammarone and his office staff are the best! This pain management specialist genuinely cares about his patients. Appointments I have made in his office are on time, without exception.At the clinic, Dr. Sammarone puts my needs as a patient first.I have suffered with chronic head and neck pain for months, and Dr. Sammarone has been persistent in treating me for my pain and I am beginning to get results I have hoped to get for years. Thank you, Dr. Sammarone...

I have had years of dealing with pain. I suffer with endometriosis back, & hip pain that was not able to be cured or managed. When i met Dr Sammarone he listened to my complaints and immediately started with a plan of action. His staff is welcoming and flexible. I have had numerous events where I needed to switch or come in unexpectedly and i was seen. I feel relaxed when speaking with him and he listens to all of my needs.

I've been working with him for a year now and he has really helped with the pain. The difference from when i started to now is unbelievable. Everyone from the staff in his private office to the surgical center is extremely nice. The communication is fantastic and they go over and beyond to make sure your questions/concerns are answered.
