    Dr. Molinari performed a microdiscectomy to alleviate severe sciatic nerve pain from a herniated disc. The moment I woke up from surgery the leg pain was gone. I was able to walk the same day of the surgery, and was back to work and off narcotic pain meds one week after surgery. He was very attentive to my concerns, scheduled my surgery quickly, and has a certain "swagger" about him that, combined with his experience and credentials, instills confidence that the desired outcome will be achieved.

    He is extremely efficient and the office was also . I had a successful back surgery . I didt have to wait long for an appointment and never waited long at the office. He is very friendly and listened to my specific questions and concerns. My quality of day to day living has improved 100%. I have reccommended him to several people. He was reccommended. To me by my daughter who works in the ER at Strong .

    I experienced progressive low back pain until I almost couldn't walk or stand. At my appointment with Dr Molinari, he said that a lumbar laminectomy would eliminate the pain associated with walking and standing. He was right! I was standing, walking, and doing stairs right after the surgery and thereafter. No pain meds needed. The doctor is personable and professional and I would recommend him.

    He is the best!! I had low back pain since Sept '15. After the runaround through Unity Hosp, I went rogue and called Dr Molinari in Feb '16. He saw me, instantly said he could fix the problem, and 3 days later I had a discectomy. I woke up from surgery with instant relief. I didn't even need pain meds. The relief from over 5 month of debilitating back pain was enough. I was depressed and frustrated and Dr Molinari fixed me and I was back to work in only 2 weeks. Friendly, honest, amazing Doctor.

    Dr. M treated our teenage son for a stress fracture in his lower back. He is a skilled clinician as well as a warm and compassionate man. I highly recommend him to anyone.
