Dr R has my back! After 2 previous surgeries, I went in to see Dr. Rauzzino. I received incredible care and optimism! I left my visit with a clear understanding of my extended options. He's very intelligent, considerate, and caring. GREAT Doctor!

I haven't felt this good in 7 years. I had emergency lumbar surgery, at Sky Ridge, that Dr. Rauzzino performed. I am eternally grateful for him being there and taking care of me. I would recommend him to anyone needing an honest opinion with a no nonsense doctor.
