would not recommend him to anyone. horrible bed side manor. I needed help from him for a failed brain surgery.MVD He thought I was a liability and would not touch me. I have Florida Medicaid so my options are very limited. .MY FAILED SURGERY LEFT ME WITH CHRONIC VOMITING THAT NEVER GOES AWAY. I WILL DIE SOON FROM THIS AND NO ONE CARES TO HELP ME. THEY HAVE NO CLUE HOW TO TREAT ME. STRONGLY RECOMMEND AVOIDING USF MONTHS BETWEEN APPOINTMENTS IS RIDICULIOUS GOD HELP ME

Dr. Agazzi treated my 19 year old son who was admitted to TGH with Bleeding in the Brain. After 3 days in the NICU, Dr. Agazzi diagnosed him w/(Bleeding) Brainstem Cavernoma. Although controversial, Dr Agazzi recommended surgery to resect the Cavernoma. This surgery required a highly skilled and specialized Neurosurgeon due to location in the brain & high risk of complete & permanent paralysis (along with other risks). Dr. Agazzi conducted the 7-8 hour surgery & my son will have a full recovery!

Went to him for hemifacial spasm advice. He took one look at my MRI and said I had MS. No one else saw this on my MRI. Turned out I do have both, but thanks to him I am getting treatment. I wish he could be my neuroligst!

Dr. Agazzi has performed 2 brain surgeries to remove metastatic tumors related to lung cancer. The first was in the area of speech, language processing, etc. and the second was very close to the motor skills area. Dr. Agazzi did a tremendous job on both surgeries!! His skill and expertise prevented any major affects on both gross and fine motor skills. He explained the procedure and potential side effects & was quick to report to the family following surgery. I HIGHLY recommend him!!

I suffered a stroke and aneurysm in December of 2014, luckily for me Dr. Agazzi was at Tampa General Hospital that morning. I credit Dr. Agazzi with extending my life to share with my family and to the TGH staff for excellent care and rehabbing, I thank them for improving my quality of life physically. Without a doubt I would refer Dr. Agazzi to someone in my prior situation. Thank You Dr. Agazzi, Thank you TGH staff !
