Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Tortolani was exceptional from start to finish. He took his time with me on my first visit to explain my MRI in detail and describe the surgery he proposed and the justification for his approach, which I found eminently logical. I went to the hospital on a Monday morning for my surgery. I was in ridiculous pain. Five hours later, I came out of anesthesia with no pain at all! Even the surgical site pain was minimal (acetominophen wasn't even really necessary). A week later, I continue to be pain-free and opioid-free and I consider this an amazing and life-changing event. Dr. Tortolani is the best there is!

I visited Dr. Tortolani in May of 2017, and I believe a review 4 years later is very valuable, because a patient wants to feel better in the short term and also in the long term. From following Dr. Tortolani’s expert advice, I experienced great improvements, and I do feel great until today; I live 1:30 h away from his office, and it was well worth the trip; I would recommend Dr. Tortolani to all my friends.

Very compassionate doctor. Extremely knowledgeable, caring doctor. Explains and takes the time to listen to you and answer all your questions. I would definitely recommend him, in fact I have recommended him to my brother who traveled from New Jersey to see him. He helped my brother who was suffering with back pain.
