Dr. Sammarone Review
I am so glad my Orthopedic Physician referred me to Dr. Sammarone. I suffer from chronic headaches caused by arthritis in my neck vertebrae and the treatments I have received from Dr. Sammarone have really helped, especially in reduction in pain medicines that I need to take. His office and surgical staff are the most professional, personal and effective health teams I have experienced.

Miraculous
Dr Sammarone was referred to me by my husband and I am thankful for this. Not only does Dr Sammarone listen, he asks questions AND takes his time with you to understand what your problems are and what will help you. His bedside manners are phenomenal and ALL of his staff, highly professional! It's a pleasure to go my my appointments and my procedures. His staff are all welcoming, friendly and make you feel at ease. He has helped my pain go from over a 10 to almost a 1-2 (in a matter of a few months). I would highly recommend Dr Sammarone to anyone.

After literally years of neck and back pain, and seeing chiropractors and other pain management doctors, I was referred to Dr. Sammarone. He was thorough in his examination and explained exactly what the problem was, which no other doctor had ever really done. The process to heal, he said would take time. He is a caring and compassionate Dr. who gives 110%. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Sammarone is amazing. I had a chronic back pain for over a year, saw different doctors and nine helped. Surgery wasn’t warranted, so I just kind of gave up and lived with it. Found Dr. Sammarone and he worked wonders, pain is virtually non existent. When he tells you to be patient though, listen to him. It is a process and takes times-at least in my situation-but it worked. He’s kind, compassionate and spends all the time you need. Highly recommend him without a doubt!

I had left femur rod surgery, due to stage 4 renal cancer. After 6 months of PT, I left with a limp. Soon after, I tried a chiropractor, PT again, acupuncture and finally a 2nd chiropractor. The last chiropractor really tried but unfortunately, I still had the pain in my right leg. He recommended Dr. Sammarone. He gave me 4 trigger injections into my spinal area, every 2 weeks for a total of 6 sessions. Finally, I no longer have leg pain. I am grateful that this is over and I can focus on my other health challenges, all out of my control. The office staff is prompt, courteous and efficient. Easy to get to, easy parking right in front. I'm so pleased with my experience with Dr. Sammarone and his staff.

Dr. Sammarone saved my life! For 24 years I suffered from debilitating back pain, and tried everything from physio, chiropratic, acupunture, pain management, meds, tens, etc. When I finally went to see Dr. Sammarone, he took his time and explained his process and the various procedures I would endure along the path to healing. Within a year, I no longer had back pain at all, and was able to stop taking pain meds (after 11 straight years taking them), and feel as though I have my life back, not too mention my back feels like I am 25 again (I am 49.) For anyone suffering from any type of back pain, I highly recommend Dr. Sammarone and his staff who are all very efficient, kind, and caring. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Sammarone...you truly gave me back quality of life...a gift I shall be eternally grateful for!!!!

As an RSD patient of 7 years, I finally found the perfect combination of a great bedside manner and an effective treatment with Dr Sammarone just one year ago. Dr Sammarone is incredibly genuine in his compassion and caring nature that he makes going to the doctor a much more pleasant experience than I had gotten used to the first 6 years I was in treatment, prior to meeting Dr Sammarone. He is not only a pleasure to deal with but he is also the first to provide me the level of relief that I find suitable to start living my life again. I have been so happy with Dr Sammarone that I have also brought my husband to him for his chronic back pain and he has not only helped him as much as he has helped me but my hubby loves Dr Sammarone as much as I do. We will be forever grateful to Dr Sammarone, I only wish I found him sooner! Thank you so so much Dr Sammarone, you have absolutely saved my life!!

It is apparent Dr Sammarone is very knowledgeable and really cares about the comfort of his patients. He thoroughly explained treatment recommendations and showed compassion every step of the way. I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with the staff at the Parsippany office and Surgical Center. Everyone was courteous, professional and made my visits as comfortable as they possible could. My experience at Advanced Pain Therapy was superior and well above medical treatment standards.
