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.

I don't think you could find any body with Dr. Tortolani's experience, caring and compassion. He performed some VERY DIFFICULT and Complex Surgery on me that will allow me to walk and keep pain levels considerably reducèd. My Hero.
