If he doesn't feel you should do surgery he will explain all of your options first. No need in going through it if therapy or other alternatives will work. Not only has Dr. Mauro performed 2 surgeries for me but also 2 on my dad that were way worse and knowing that I woke up from surgery with no pain from both surgeries has been more than I could have expected. Dr. Mauro and his staff have always been friendly and up front and honest. I will continue to support him!

I have had many surgeries but never a surgeon so thorough, kind, and understanding. He did a great job of explaining things to me in a way that I could better understand. He was a blessing to me and my family.

Didn't seem too concerned with my issues. Ordered MRI but no follow up, glad I have My Chart to see results. Sent me to pain specialist then to nerve specialist who said I was good candidate for surgery. Wasted all that time and money. Now going to a real surgeon. Don't waste your time with this one

Realistically one star is too many for this doctor. He blew off not only myself but my husband who was told by two other physicians that he needed surgery to avoid being paralyzed. I wouldn't take my gold fish to this guy.
