Dr. Puccioni saved my life in 2011. I would not be here today if he had not performed a bilateral craniotomy on me and was instrumental in my treatment for alpha-hemolytic Streptococcus lesions in my brain. He is not only an excellent surgeon, but was great with me and my family in explaining my treatment and all procedures. Simply the best.

This is the worst doctor ever! I can't believe he is allowed to practice medicine. He told us to take our child home to die because HE didn't think anything good was possible. THEN when our child was treated elsewhere by a doctor who is competent, he said, "Well, I don't see why she did this procedure. SHE thinks she can help you but I don't see it doing any good." IT DOESN'T MATTER THAT MY CHILD HAD S4 and is now getting better. NEVER trust your child to this snide, sarcastic jerk.

We believe if it was not for Dr. Puccioni are daughter chances of living would be diminished. We are very fortunate for our outcome. We appreciate everyone that was involved. Good outcomes (life) is not guaranteed. I strongly urge everyone to be an advocate for the patient. One must educate and cross reference anything of importance. We literally placed our 7-year-old daughter’s life in Dr. Puccioni hands. I looked Mark Puccioni in the eyes and he confirmed he would try to do his best.

I would caution anyone who is considering surgery for seizures to ask Dr. Puccioni what the quality of life is like after surgery for these patients. My husband had surgery and now requires 24 hour long term care, despite being told by Dr. Puccioni he might need some speech therapy after surgery. My husband has not had seizures for a month now, but his quality of life is greatly diminished. I would like to know how many people no longer have seizures-but no longer live a meaningful life.
