Love him to death. I was crippled with pain and he performed a miracle. From the moment I woke up my pain was gone. Hard to imagine how I could not wait to have surgery and it met all expectations.

I met Dr. Giordano several years ago when I sought guidance on sciatica. I was diagnosed with stenosis and was told by Dr. Giordano to do some therapy and take some medications. I was expecting a surgeon to want to operate and my experience was the opposite. He gave good guidance. I developed a recurrence and he sent me for injections. Unfortunately they did not work and I ultimately had to have a laminectomy about 6 months ago. I have now fully recovered and had my best round of golf ever, 79!! He is a honest and very talented surgeon. I highly recommend him.

The nicest man I ever met. You will never meet a more honest doctor. He operated on me 10 years ago and I have done great. I recently saw him again for another problem and I was so happy to see him. He hasn't changed a bit. He is still the nicest honest doctor that I know. He also operated on my internist this past year who also did great and was back to work within two weeks. I read the review below and just had to comment. Don't know what that patients problem is. That patient must be a scam artist that the good doctor didn't fall for. As for the paycheck comment, the good doctor didn't even charge me or my internist. Dr. Giordano is absolutely not about the money. I am sure he could have retired a long time ago if he wanted to. There is no doctor that I would support more than Dr. Giordano. I work in a doctors office and I am sick and tired of patients posting silly irresponsible comments.

Worst of the worst of the worst. Treated like I was a paycheck, not a patient.

Best thing that ever happened to me. Saw another doc in area who did a disc on me and it failed. Doc G fixed it and have done great. I didn't even have half the pain from his surgery that I did from the first surgery. Went home the same day. He's a great guy and a straight shooter.

I can not praise him enough. I had a laminectomy 15 years ago and recently come back to see him for another issue. I have done very very well for 15 years. I was so happy to see the doctor doing so well. He hasn't changed a bit. He has great bedside manner and is a fantastic Doctor. I read the review below and wondered wtf. None of what that person said made sense. He doesn't have a PA. I know that because I have worked at the hospital. I also know that lami extinct patients don't go home the same day. None of what the reviewer said made sense. I can only tell you to ask in the area who the best doctor is and everyone will say Dr. Giordano. He takes care of all of the physicians on staff. He has won so many awards and I am living proof of how wonderful he is.

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.
