the wait is awful sometimes but the worst is he's unwilling the actually help you. sure he's got all kinds of weird and random test to charge the insurance company but he won't prescribe anything helpful. Even after years of x-rays and MRIs. This whole opioid epidemic is causing more harm than help.

I went to see Dr Canella , we had our first visit ans he ordered a CT. From that moment on he and his practice have left me hanging. I asked before leaving if I needed to make a follow up appt."no we will call you when we get the reults" 5 days later, no call. I spoke to his asst and she said "he was out of town and would call me to set up next steps." 7 days later no call, I left a message for he assistant again, no return call. I went and got my own CT results and was shocked to find out that not only do I have back issues I have other medical issues that need attention. THANKS for making me navigate and attempt to understand these issues alone. Horrible thing to do to your patient!

He is concerned with making lots of money by doing repeated spinal ablations and steroid injections. I had severe headaches after the first one. He lied about my MRI results and told me they were normal and insisted he do 4 more of the same procedures. He caused cerebral spinal leak and this caused the back part of my brain to be sucked into my neck and crumple my spinal cord. I suddenly went blind (black) and a neurosurgeon had to saw off my neck vertebrae and saw a hole in my skull.

Dr. Steven Cannella is the BEST pain management specialist I'v ever seen! He has an EXCELLENT "bedside manner" & sincerely cares about mitigating your pain. He employes MANY different methods in conjunction w/Rx's(IF they're necessary!)He cares about your physical pain as well as your emotional state of mind. He takes his time explaining all of your options & answering All of your questions. He's extraordinary! His staff is as wonderful as he is; they work w/your schedule, they're caring & kind!

My complaint is not specifically with Dr. Cannella, but with the clinic in general. Before I ever met Dr. Cannella, the clinic drew blood for lab work. I explained over and over that I was not at the clinic for pain medicine, but for a non-narcotic treatment. The nurse said over and over "don't worry, you have insurance". These test were completely unnecessary. I was never informed of any results from these tests. By the way, $8500.00 for these test.

Dr Cannella is a good Dr but unfortunately you have to deal with his office staff in order to see a Dr. This office truly has the rudest personnel that I have ever dealt with. It's unfortunate that such a good Dr has to lose clients because of his choices of support staff. I have heard many people remark to each other about the rudeness of the staff at this office. The rudeness of the staff seems to be the topic of most conversation in the waiting area. That is sad.

After going in with no pain and getting spinal steroid injections in my neck Friday and having pain worse than what I originally went in there for throughout the weekend I call for an appointment Monday. The soonest his ace staff can schedule me to see him is three weeks. Not so good to say the least.
