Specialties

Dr. Ricardo Cruciani has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Management

    A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
    These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
    Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Excellent Doctor

He is patient, answers all of your questions. Listens to you. Tries to reach a professional solution to your pain. I have been to many Doctors in my 42 years, I have Sickle Cell, Intractable migraines, endometriosis, and several other health issues. By far, Dr. Cruciani is the best.

Where did he go!!!!!

I was seeing Dr. Cruciani for almost a year he was the only Dr that actually helped with my RSD CRPS. But poof gone with one months notice almost the notice got sent out for a 30 day heads up get a new Dr but got stuffed into mail slots after mail slots finally got to me giving me 3 weeks notice. My old PM Dr took me back no problem no questions asked bc I showed him all documentation and had my records sent to him but now I am no longer receiving my infusions and I have a port in place that requires 30day maintenance. I'm going to have it removed I have no choice now. But does anyone know where he has gone. This is the only way for me to ask if anyone is doing the same or maybe knows. BTW this is not the first time Drexel has done this Dr Aridillas-Lopez was there doing the same then poof gone just like this. I think it's Drexel not the Dr's...
