Giordano claimed he did my laminectomy but I did not see him in holding area, O.R, recovery. Did not speak with my husband after surgery. Ist day in hospital. He stands in door way of my room, unfriendly. I had drain in my back did not look at it. Said he will not be seeing me again. Saw his P.A. Not many nice words about him from others while my stay. Discharged at 5:00 P.M. Was not given any information on my after care! He or his P.A. come in to talk to me. I live far away very winding roads discharged prime time traffic. No information on my 2 scripts. Husband had to find pharmacy. I was still in pain Post-op. Saw him again in his office. Told him still in pain. He could NOT UNDERSTAND, did not like my report. Asked if I need an MRI. I said not now could not lay on table for it. Week later, pain still there. Called his office for the MRI. He did not write it down in his office notes. Finally OK MRI. Nasty staff mailed it to me. Told office manager I need Authorazation from my insurance Co. Manager said I don't, I said I did!! She refused!!! Had to ask my Primary Care for a script and Authorization I got it. Showed "Failed Laminectomy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Kept calling office for my Medical Records from his office notes. Never got them! 5 levels of Lumbar removed no fusion. Now have Flat back Syndrome, Disks and tears those 5 levels!!! Major problems in spine. Many years later. Now need MAJOR LONG SPINAL SURGERY. There is an empty space now on those 5 levels removed. I complained to him when saw him on first and only visit Post-op about his staff! He said ""I do the surgery you deal with my staff"" Now with all my experience I suggest to other patients, Do not be afraid to speak up, do not allow yourself to be bullied by a Dr. or Staff. Research, research, research!!!!! Dr. G. is a Workers Comp Doctor and his wife is A Workers Comp Attorney!!!!!!!!!!!! Now That Says A Lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I not a Workers Comp case just as nasty and destroyed my spine. He is a con artist. Do not understand why M.M.C. keeps him on staff?? Or any other hospital. I believe he is the only Workers Comp.

Dr. Giordano did my spine surgery in 2008. After the surgery I never got better and it was called a failed Laminectomy. I hope patients who read thin are familiar with the spine. He removed, S-1 L-2 L-3 L-4 L-5. In that area I was left with, as Johns Hopkins put it, a large empty space and I was told to be very careful of any trauma to that area because there is nothing there to protect it. It took many years to find out what was wrong after going from one Dr. to another because pain was getting worse and worse. I was also left with "Flat Back Syndrome" which means the curvature in spine to sit is gone! It is flat now. I can not sit and over the years I can barley sit due to terrible severe chronic pain. Nov. 2008 a patient before surgery sees their Surgeon, sees their Dr. in the OR if only for a few minutes and than Recovery. I did not see him at all. Following day he stopped by my room stood by the door way, I had a drain, never checked it, proceded to tell me I will not be seeing him again someone else will! Nurses at Morristown Medical Center were so good to be as I did not have a doctor, I saw his P.A. very nice, she was not fond of him either. As of today 2016 my spine has deteriorated , quality life gone! Just had my Spinal Stimulator removed so I can have an MRI. C.T Scan with contrast show so many empty spaces in my spine. In Layman's terms, my back is a mess due to him. I should have sued him 2008. He is mostly know for Workman's Comp cases. If a patient has problems with the spine always see a "Neurosurgeon" ONLY! His staff was very rude! He forgot he offered me an MRI, never wrote it down. Staff, I had Aetna at the time, billing told me I did not need authorization!!!! Refused to give it to me a script for an MRI!! I hade to ask my Primary Care Dr. for the script. Patients have to learn to speak up and do not allow yourself to be Intimidated by DOCTOR"S!!! I WAS a Horse Back Rider, Hiker ETC. Now I spend most of my life in bed due to Pain. I found a wonderful Neurosurgeon, great Staff but will need another back surgery.

The doc took good care of me. I had a surgery recommended to me by someone else and I didn't like the plan it didn't sound right. I saw Giordano and he had a different plan that made sense. He did my surgery about seven months ago and I went back to work and just got back from a canoe trip. It was the right move. God bless

I was in real trouble. I had a fusion by another doctor and was doing very poorly. I saw dr Giordano who found a collection of fluid that had to be drained. Dr Giorfano drained it and I was much better almost immediately. Can't thank him enough.

OMG. Had a operation and was amazed that it was so pain free. Woke up in recovery room and told the nurse that I did not need the surgery., that my sciatica was gone. The nurse laughed and said"honey your surgery was already done that's why your sciatica is gone. ". I was amazed. I didn't feel anything. Dr. Giordano injected something that took away the surgical pain and the surgery took away the leg pain. It was crazy. I was so miserable for three months before the surgery and then poof it was gone. All I can say is OMG. What a great doctor.

I will tell all who read this that I was very happy. I actually saw Dr. Giordano for a second opinion and switched to him. I was very happy that I did. From the moment I entered the hospital the entire staff told me that I made the right choice. Everything went very well and I had very little surgical pain. Hard to explain how little pain their was from the surgery. He was very honest decent and I could tell that he cared. I was happy to pay him.
