Ratings for Dr. Gary J. Correnti
I was very lucky to have been referred to Dr Correnti for my back surgery. What I liked most was he was straight forward showed me on my cat scan exactly what needed to be corrected and how the procedure was going to be done. I wasn't able to walk because of the pain in my back and leg, it's been 3 months since surgery and I have no pain in either my back or leg. I have recommended Dr Correnti to a number of people who have asked about my back surgery. Thank you again Dr Correnti Larry H.
Dr correnti has the worst bed side manner. After surgery he was an very rude!. I am now in need of more surgery as the hardware has caused pressure on other disk.

We appreciate all feedback but are very concerned to read these comments about one of our providers as we work tirelessly to provide superior care and an unrivaled patient experience. Although we understand that personalities can clash, we would like to assure our patients that Dr. Correnti is a dedicated and talented surgeon who works collaboratively with all of his patients. His ability to connect and empathize with the individuals behind the chart work has led him to a great many successes. In the wake of what others may consider a lost cause, Dr. Correnti truly becomes a champion for those who aren't sure what tomorrow may or may not bring. Nothing paints this picture so clearly as the words of a wife and mother who was on the verge of losing her husband who suffered serious surgical complications "..THANK YOU to the man who essentially created a surgery to try and save my husband's life when he could have let him die". These are the results Dr. Correnti and all of our staff here at SWFNA strive to make possible every single day. We extend our sincere apologies if an experience had was not up to expectation and we would appreciate the chance to discuss any questions or concerns at length and remedy the situation. In the meantime, we send out our warmest wishes to all for good health and fast recovery!

He's the most arrogant doctor I've ever met , He barely lets you ask a question and when he does his answers are abrupt and full of arrogant self worth, He absolutely showed NO compassion when I was in excruciating pain!

We appreciate all feedback regarding our practice - even if it is not complimentary - as it guides us in providing the best possible care to our patients. We are sorry to read that your interactions with Dr. Correnti did not meet your expectations. Of course, we care a great deal about our patients, and sympathize when/if they are in pain. Our goal, however, is to find and treat the root cause of the pain our patients experience. As such, until that cause is correctly diagnosed, unfortunately, the relief of pain is a secondary (yet, still important) concern. We understand that patients who are experiencing elevated pain levels can have strong emotional reactions - especially if they are informed that relief from such pain is not quite imminent. Under these circumstances it is perfectly understandable for a patient to become upset if their painful symptoms are not directly being addressed. A doctor's initial priority on diagnosis, rather than pain relief, may lead some patient to erroneously conclude that the doctor has no sympathy for the patient's suffering, or that the doctor is "arrogant." However, nothing could be further from the truth. Our doctors are committed, passionate and caring professionals who want what's best for their patients. Nonetheless, we regret that your impressions of Dr. Correnti were not more positive. If you would like to discuss your experience with us further, we invite you to contact our office at your convenience. We'd be glad to answer any questions, or attempt to find a solution to any potential problem. Whatever you decide, we wish you the best of health.

Dr. Correction is an excellent surgeon. My insurance did not want to do surgery and Correnti recommended. My name is Barry Ashman, I have been a firefighter for 30 years. Dr. Correnti saved my career. I had a L5 S1 fusion in 2011. I feel like I did when I was twenty. There are many factors on these post blaming the Doc for things that are out of his control. Like people blame the waitress for cold, wrong, or food delivery delays. It's not always the waitress fault. Correnti, like anyone else can have a bad day at work or his personal life. Just because he is human he is aloud to have an off day. I woke up from surgery in tremendous pain, crying. He was at my bed side, he said what's wrong? I said tremendous pain. He looked at my chart and said, you should have got 2 mg of pain meds and got one. He ordered 1 mg and that took care of the pain. Not his fault, it was the nurse or PA assistant. Great doc and have recomended to several friends.
Dr. Correnti performed two surgeries within 6 months. I had an anterior, cervical, discectomy and fusion in November of 2013, and a lumbar 4-5 fusion in June of 2014. For both procedures he provided all the time and information I needed before the surgeries to make a decision that was in my long-term best interests. The surgical procedures were both performed excellently. My recovery time included meaningful visits with him to make sure my healing was progressing correctly. My cervical surgery was life-threatening, so I am very thankful that he was able to clear his schedule in less than 18 hours from when he saw my MRI until he started the surgery. The lumbar surgery corrected a problem I had been living with for 37 years. Now my back feels and responds similar to how it was when I was a teenager. He is an outstanding surgeon!
Dr Correnti which I really don't like mentioning or calling it a doctor he's the most arrogant doctor I've ever met was a patient of his in 2001 three levels failed cervical fusion he says there's nothing wrong with you three other neurosurgeons agree your surgery failed what's his arrogance can t read an MRI or xray stay away from this doctor you got nothing to gain and a lot to lose

We appreciate all feedback as it provides us information to continually provide the best possible patient experience. This review is disturbing as it cites a situation over a decade old! It is additionally frustrating as it provides no identifying information to contact the individual. This naturally renders us helpless to assist - the very purpose for our practice. It does sound like this individual sought assistance from several other physicians, leading us to believe care has been provided. That is, of course, our greatest concern. Still, our door is always open. Whether or not you choose to respond to our invitation, we wish you the best.

This doctor is pompous and very dramatic. He barely lets you ask a question and when he does his answers are abrupt and full of arrogant self worth. We had a previous surgeon that was amazingly compassionate and did a superior operation. I only wish we didn't feel so rushed into this operation and had time to look around for another doctor.
Appointment staff told me that Dr. Correnti could order a particular test at my first office visit. After filling out many forms, waiting quite a while, chatting w/the doc's PA, the doc arrived & spent less than 5 minutes face-to-face. He told me 2 things I didn't alreayd know about my condition, stated he could not order the test that his appointment person had promised & referred me to another doctor's office.
