    Sarasota, FL |
    Horrible staff. He didn't address my concerns
    in Port Charlotte, FL |
    Didn't seem to understand that I was in pain as a result of bulging disc even after an MRI and multiple office visits. It didn't seem like I was important enough for him to worry about. I was totally dumbfounded and now am looking for someone who is competent.
    in Sarasota, FL |
    Best surgery ever. Accurate and concise Dr. Lonstein corrected my disc issue and I have never had that pain again.
    in North Port, FL |
    A real looser. What can you expect from a plumber?
    in Sarasota, fl |
    Egotistical, no empathy, judgemental, argues, doesn't listen, doesn't preform a proper assessment. Wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy. No one deserves to be treated with such disrespect
