Fixed my upper back pain immediately!

I went to Dr. Colarusso as a result of upper back pain from moving heavy furniture. It had been annoying me for months. He performed a spinal manipulation and I felt better almost immediately. Some of my vertebrae were out of whack. Very grateful!

Worst ever

Worst doctor ever. Rude incompetent and makes accusations. WILL NOT LISTEN TO TO YOU, to the point you get angry. If you started a med and filled it he will know. In his twisted mind he won't believe you you stopped it even when you have the FULL Bottle to prove it. Nasty unprofessional and will argue your taking something when your not. Sorry I didn't mention it CAUSE IM NOT TAKING IT. VP of pratice hs just as bad he doesn't care about the patients. Just his doctors. Failed to read my medical records from my RA doc that says she is reluctant to go to pain management she doesn't want strong pills. He labeled the wrong person. Just because I'm on state insurance and limited to where I can go I'm not trashy like you think I am. I work a good job for a town and I have 2 college degrees. So he really did accuse the wrong person. Funny all over adderoll I filled FIRST time June 1 and took 3 days and didn't like it and had proof of Bottle with me. Also told me to stop smoking before he saw me. Ha ha and ha. All I do is smoke I don't drink or do drugs. Otherwise the staff is great and my orthopedic I see there is good.

Never Recommend

I'm a very pregnant woman experiencing sciatic nerve pain. Dr. Colarusso entered rm,said to get on the table,tapped around my knee and ankle,asked me to lay down,tapped around some more. Said I'd have permanent nerve damage in my left ankle & said I could schedule acupuncture and phys therapy. He's only Dr. to do acupuncture. Just as he finished his "recommendation", he told me I could get up off of the table when I'm ready and left the rm. Had to call my mom to help me. Dr. didn't offer assistance knowing I was in great pain,rude&rushed, no dialogue regarding my condition. Will never recommend. Oh, my acupuncturist aligned my disc and is treating me. I now have almost all feeling in my leg and ankle.

a waste of time

Dr. Colarusso has no bed side manners. He spent a total of 3 min with me. He bent my legs so bad that I believe he made me worse. He told me my pelvic bone was out of place. I then was told he ordered injections for me. He never explained any of that to me. The next day the pain was so bad when I called his office he was to busy to see me. I was told to go to the emergency room if I had pain. He is rude, unprofessional and should be reported. I did call my insurance company and was told never to use him find a new doctor.
