A friend of mine recommended Dr. Gio, after his successful surgery. I am seven weeks post op and am extremely happy with the outcome. I would fully recommend Dr. Gio to anyone in need of lower back surgery.

Dr Giovanni did back surgery on me & I was in more pain after the surgery than before, for over a year. I am still going to pain management. He & his staff were very rude & he argued with me about several things concerning my health. I finally walked out & didn’t go back.
