I was recommended by Dr Donatello by family members who highly recommended him. Maybe it was just timing but he was very unthoughtful of my condition. He had his own surgery recovery and was not working full time to take care of his patients. It was over a month to see him and he recommended an injection that cost over $1,500 that did not help me at all and made my pain worse and he barely acknowledged me at all during the procedure. He wanted me to do the procedure which didn't help again.
