Very pleased with Dr. Scibelli, his medical staff, his front office staff, and all the Nurses and other medical professionals at Memorial Hospital Jax that assisted with my pre-op, inpatient, and post-op care.

Excellent physician. Excellent staff. Excellent medical care. Excellent all around!
Excellent Dr , who cares
in Jacksonville, FL |
Dr. Scibelli saved my life. He is the best neurosurgeon in Jax and probably the nation, with special training in complex spine revisions and scoliosis surgeries. Most surgeons won't accept correcting another surgeons mistakes. which is my case. I had a 2 stage surgery at BMC in 2011. In 2014, I moved to Jax. and first went to Lyerly Grp. but was told my conditioned was far too complicated for Any Lyerly neurosurgeons. I am 6 mo. post op, out of pain, back to living again, Dr. Scibelli Is amazing

I would definitely recommend this physician for any spine or back issues.

Dr. Scibelli performed two surgeries on me at different times. I am very pleased with the outcome of both. During the times I was under his care he took the time to explain every step to myself and my wife. We both always felt confident in his skills as a doctor. He was always very pleasant and friendly.

Dr. Scibelli is fantastic. He is kind, patient, empathetic, informative and took his time to make sure I was clear and he offered a very sensible treatment approach. My fears and anxiety of the unknown have calmed down, I feel extremely confident with his guidance. And it is so heartwarming to see how happy and content his support staff is. That alone speaks volumes. Wonderful support staff! They are all so busy but they don't rush you or make you feel like you are a bother.

I was referred to this Dr. Expecting a relief to my condition. After my surgery I feel worst, his only response is that every huma body is different. I regret having the surgery. I was better than I am now. Great personality, but not very professional, maybe because I am a young person. But not a pleasant experience. I can't do less than before.

Performed neurosurgery on my wife, did an outstanding job! Very knowledgeable, reassuring, exudes confidence and professionalism. Gives it to you straight up, no wavering or dithering. Can't help but trust the guy. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

Outstanding. He fixed my back problem and I am living again.
in Jacksonville, FL |
After receiving a very serious neck injury and knowing I needed a complicated surgery, I was devastated. Dr. Scibelli came highly recommended from several other highly respected doctors in the community, not to mention multiple patients that have been treated by Dr. Scibelli. After meeting Dr. Scibelli I was emediatly put at ease. He explained every detail of my plan of care so I fully understood what was involved. I felt like I was not just a number, but a very import patient in excellent care.
Atlanta, GA |
When my father had a sudden, large brain bleed, Dr. Scibelli acted quickly. An EVD drain was inserted to release fluid build up and Dr. Scibelli watched over my father for 21 days in the ICU. He was extremely knowledgeable and made excellent decisions. When we had issues with the ICU nursing staff, Dr. Scibelli took time out between surgeries to immediately address our concerns. His office staff is organized and considerate. He was an incredible blessing during a very hard time in our family.
in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL |
I required urgent back surgery. I received excellent care throughout. Dr. Scibelli explained everything in detail. He was very thorough, professional, and compassionate. I experienced an excellent result. I would highly recommend Dr. Stephen Scibelli and his staff.
