    I had been experiencing back pain for many years then it got to the point I could not stand or walk for long periods of time I had to use a cane when I did. First was a cortisone injection which mildly helped. I met with Dr. Senatus & his PA Sharon and it was decided I needed surgery. I was skeptical but let me tell you it was the best thing i could have done. i was walking that evening and had no pain, no meds except ibuprofen. now 6 weeks later i feel like a new person. No Back Pain!!!

    I saw Dr. Senatus in August due to acute lower back pain. A myelogram indicated that surgery was not a question of IF, but when. My husband and I met with Sharon Tokarz, his PA. She explained the procedure, how I might feel for the next 2 weeks, and so forth. On December 7, I had a right L4-5 lateral lumbar fusion at Rockville General Hospital in Vernon. I was out of bed that afternoon and home the next morning. I've done so well I can do exercises at home. Dr. Senatus and staff are so awesome.

    Dr. Senatus is a skilled and caring professional. He treated me for spinal stenosis through a complex surgical procedure that has significantly improved my quality of life. I would go to him again if I ever had another back issues and highly recommend him to family and friends. Further, his staff, especially is APRN, Sharon, are exceptional!

    Dr. Senatus is the best doctor I have ever been to. He preformed surgery on my neck it was probably one of the most complicated operation he does. Had six disc removed and replaced with titanium rods and screw. The surgery was very complicated many doctors at Yale. The surgery was a success. He is one of the most caring Doctors I have ever had. Even gave me a hug afterwards a few days later. He is a wonderful person as well as a excellent doctor.

    Dr. Senatus is a fantastic doctor. He has an excellent, pleasant, caring bedside manner, and is very honest, open, and understanding about patient concerns and exploring different treatment options. As a surgeon, he is first class. After 1.5 years of conservative therapies, we agreed on anterior cervical discectomy fusion at C5-C7 levels. The procedure was a success, and the chronic pain I've been managing for 5 years VANISHED. Now I'm recovering well, and getting back to my life. he's THE BEST!
