horrible and worst doctor even
Self-verified patient of Dr. Frank J Colarusso - Posted on June 13th, 2019
visited the doctor today, I was trying to tell him why my back feel pain and when it started. he does not listen and he has no interest to hear of those. he just asked me sit and lay down, and stretch me from back couples of time. then that's it and it's done. I tried to ask him why I feel pain. he told me:"I don't know". he left the room after 3 minutes and 1 minute later, I heard he say hi to another patient in the next room. feel very sad for myself to find such a worst and not professional "doctor". so, be away from him. and his college and eduction background was very poor and that might be one of reason he looks like a patient hater.

Excellent dr! I had the best experience with him. In one visit I feel a thousand times better. He is very friendly and listens to what you have to say. I have been in pain in my neck and shoulder for years and in one visit I feel so much better without any pain medication. I highly recommend him. Can't say enough of great things about him!
Worse Doctor I have ever seen in My life!

My Primary Dr. Put me out of work on temporary disability because of My Back. I was involved in 4 car accidents over a 9 year. Due to The heavy work load my flare up was so bad I couldn't even walks for long periods of time. Bad spasms in my neck and back That radiates down my right arm and shoulders. extreme lower back pain to were I limp when I work. I seen Dr C on 4 different occasions. I went to him on my last visit. I took my disability form to him to fill it out. Since my primary knew I found a specialist for my back . I was told he would have to be The one to extend my Temporary disability . I explained This to him. He told me He would not call in my benefits for an extension. He said he only does That if you had surgery. He then began to tell me I can go back to work full-time. lol He Then insults me by saying your 47 and laughs come on! I told him so 47 year olds don't have disabilities. I told him The job is The reason I am out of work now. I also told him all i do is pay co pay after co pay and I am still in bad pain. I wanted to send me for a test That i already had done. He just didn't receive my results from The Mri. But he says I'm ready to return to work. I was so frustrated with him. He really don't listen to a world you say. He thin told The nurse to put me out for two more weeks but still refused to extend My Diability. I'm sitting here now in such bad pain. The same pain I have had since day one! I also tried to explain to him he wants me to do physical therapy, receive injections and continue to follow up. I agree but those things cost money. long story short. As of yesterday I quit my job. I have 0 income now! I just can't do my job anymore. I showed him my job discription that said I must be able to lift 50 pounds. I must be able to stoop,stand,sit, read,and do other things. I can't even go to a mall and walk 5 minutes before I have to sit down. My job bluntly told me They have no light duty. I will never see him again!
Don’t waste your time

This man is had 0 bed side manner. This man is cold and careless. My mother is seeing him for sacro iliac joint issues and degenerative joint disease in her L5. She has been limping around with severe pain and has seen him three times now. My mother is on Coumadin and he never remembers that. He was going to go ahead and give her an injection without remembering that being on Coumadin thins blood and puts her at risk of bleeding and developing a hematoma if her INR level is elevated. He is dismissive and patronizing. After a month and a half with no positive results we are now looking into other doctors. As a orthopedic nurse I am knowledgeable about the conditions and treatments and feel as though he is only interested in collecting a co-pay. I wouldn’t take my dog to this man.
The search is over!

I've had recurring pain in my right hip, leg, and lower back for the past several years. I've tried physical therapy and sought the advice of a doctor from another practice who referred me to a surgeon. Needless to say, I wasn't satisfied and wanted to seek the advice from another doctor, but I didn't know where to turn. A co-worker told me about her experience with Dr. Colarusso at MBO so I thought that I would give it a try. I'm so happy with the expert, compassionate care that I've received from Dr. Colarusso and his staff. He took the time to really listen to me and perform thorough exams and assessments. After receiving one injection and two adjustments, I feel better than I have in a a very long time! I honestly feel that I've finally found a place where I'll receive expert care, so I won't have to search for another doctor or practice. I'm virtually pain free thanks to Dr. Colarusso!
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!

When I first met Dr. Colarusso he listened and was very patient towards my needs. He was has provided alternative medicine towards my condition. Through follow-up visits and exercises daily my pain has been a lot less. This has been without any pain medication. I have recommended Dr. Colarusso to a co-worker of mine who has various back issues. I told her how much he has helped me with my condition. A

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.

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
Self-verified patient of Dr. Frank J Colarusso - Posted on September 15th, 2015
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.
