Upon meeting Dr. Celestre, he was able to quickly diagnose my cervical spine problem and set a plan for action. While surgery is always a scary thought, Dr. Celestre was able to put me at ease by answering all questions thoroughly and explained the surgery process and recovery period step by step. It is with utmost appreciation and gratitude that I thank Dr Celestre for giving me my life back! My results were phenomenal! He’s simply the best! Highly recommended! Outstanding follow up care!

I had 2 prior back surgeries by the same Dr. who had treated me for years. I was nervous changing Dr.'s knowing I could face another surgery in the near future. I was immediately comfortable at my first visit with Dr. Celestre. All avenues of treatment were exhausted before my surgery. He was very thorough in explaining what do expect. He met with myself and my spouse making sure we both understood the magnitude of the surgery and recovery. Surgery was a success! Dr. Celestre is the best!

Dr. Celestre is the best orthopedic doctor (I've had three) that has worked on me. Office visits were easy and straightforward with open and honest dialogue. My surgery and recovery went great. I was very heart broken when he left Richmond. You can trust Dr. Celestre to give you good information and honest advice to go with his surgical skills.

Dr. Celestre is a wonderful doctor & surgeon. He is a confident & skilled surgeon. He performed 2 major spine surgeries on me in 2 weeks time & I'm glad I chose him to do my surgeries. The surgeries went well & the after care & follow up were excellent. Dr. Celestre would personally return my calls or emails whenever I had questions or just needed reassurance. Spine surgery is a major decision. Meet him & let him review your case. He will be honest & exact about what he can do to help you

Surgery/artificial disc replacement Dr Celestre was awesome! I stayed at the Oschners Baptist Hospital for my surgery and recovery. I can not express to you of how well I was treated and cared for. My doctor was most competent and comforting. I would highly recommend Dr Celestre to anyone! He was so confident. I feel that I was in the best care, ever!

Very thorough in investigating my problems. Did not accept prior diagnosis by other doctors and/or Nurse Practitioners without checking for himself. Found what others missed and started me on the road to recovery.
