in Macomb, MI. |
Dr. BONO has excellent bedside manner. Highly recommend him. He's highly skilled in a very new procedure called Mobi-c artificial disc replacement surgery. So blessed to have him repair my neck on 2 levels. He gave me back my life!
Dr. Bono was great. He answered all of my questions prior to my surgery. Very personable and professional. Unfortunately his office staff is another story. CONSTANT follow up for a work note and paperwork requested by my disability company. Messages were not returned, and they had no sense of urgency. I work for a company in which we've won 8 JD Power awards for outstanding customer service. Employees are terminated if emails and VM's are not returned within 24 hours. No excuses accepted.

Dr. Bono is a fantastic doctor with great bed side manners, compassionate and understanding, along with being very thorough regarding the surgery I needed. Dr. Bono gave me my life back, I'm forever grateful to him.
in Livonia, MI |
He's a angel sent from heaven the best surgeon ever. So patient and will make the room light up with his presents listens well and explains well and most of all he fix you very well. I came through emergency and had already had back surgery with another doctor but, the surgery didn't go so well Dr. Bono took my case and today I have no more problem. My angel
West Bloomfield, MI |
Recommend by my own doctor who had Dr Bono take care of his brother for a similar problem I had. Very very pleased with outcome. Releaved years of back pain, now I can move about without severe pain. I am very pleased.

Dr.peter Bono did my neck and back surgery and I haven't felt this good in 25 years. Thanks Dr.Bono you are a true angel.
in Livonia, MI |
I would absolutely recommend Dr. Bono to anyone experiencing neck / spinal issues. He did an amazing job with the surgery, helped through recovery and created a great experience. I have sent several friends his way, and they all report positive experiences. :)
in Livonia, MI |
I have read many reviews about dr. Bono about not him not caring about what happens to you after surgery but I totally disagree. He did my surgery February of 2015 he did three of them total. The man came in at 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning and I will never forget that. He has seen me continually until this month and I've got another appointment for with him in 6 months. He has always shown great concern he's always been very professional yet very friendly at the same time. I gave dr. Bono 5 Stars
in South Lyon, MI |
Very precise with information and exhibited a positive attitude.
in Bridgeport Michigan |
Very disappointed. Dr Bono did my surgery in 2013 after surgery I kept telling him that something was still wrong but he kept telling that my back was healed. I went to my doctor who had a MRI done which my Back Dr should have gotten done the MRI showed that my back was not healed so yes that meant back surgery 4. My question is do he really cares what happens to his patients. Now there nothing else that he can do for me so he has stopped giving me my meds to. So no that's not the kind of Dr
Novi, MI |
Explains everything thoroughly. Believes that surgery is the last option. My decision to move forward with surgery and completely satisfied. He answers all questions and ensures that patient is knowledgeable every step of the way. Highly recommend Dr. Bono.
in Gladwin mi |
Doctor Peter Bono was recommended by another surgeon , I had some back problems for quite some time, Dr Bono kept track of the problem and when we both thought it was time to do the surgery because the pain had stopped me from doing my everyday chores and general living. I traveled over 3 hours each way to his office in Novi because I knew he was the one I wanted to work with. Doctor Bono took care of all the problems while doing the operation. A caring and expert man see him first and last!
in Waterford, MI |
He instilled confidence that I could be repaired, then he came through with royal colors. I wish I would have met him 3 miserable years ago. He told me I would enjoy walking again and so far so good. None of the old pain. I highly recommend Dr. Bono to anyone, but I do hope I don't have to visit him again, ever.
