Horrible experience

Basically incompetent. No compassion. Wrong diagnoses. Go elsewhere!

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Managed my condition horribly

Had a MASSIVE herniation of a lower back disc. Had to wait a week for an appointment then sent me for an epidural with his pain doctor (in office) but made me wait ANOTHER WEEK, knowing that I could not stand, sleep, walk. I was living on the floor. After epidural, makes me wait another 2 weeks, then sends me for another epidural. Then after 2 more weeks says that I would need surgery but that would be at least ONE MONTH AWAY TO SCHEDULE!!!!!!!!!!! I then had enough of him and his crap and went to a Neurosurgeon that was recommended by a colleague. I had an initial office visit in days and upon him looking at me and reviewing my MRI, had me in the HOSPITAL THE NEXT DAY FOR SURGURY!!!!!!!!!! Said I had a MASSIVE HERNIATION and didn't know how I was functioning!!!!!! DR. Criscitiello is absolutely horrible!!!!! Do yourself a favor and please go elsewhere!!!!!!!!!
