I've been a patient of Dr. Stephen Smaldore for many years.

I've been a patient of Dr. Stephen Smaldore for many years. I just love him! He takes his time with me and really listens to me. He includes me in making decisions about my plan of care. Recently I was in severe pain to the point I had difficulties with walking and sitting. He offered to help carry me to my car! He arranged for me to have an MRI of my back that evening and to see a neurosurgeon the next day. As it turned out I had a herniated lumbar disc. I had surgery 2 days later. I am truly amazed how fast things went from the onset of my symptoms to the treatment of surgery (less than a week!). If it weren't for Dr. Steve making all the arrangements, I don't think I would be feeling better now. Dr. Steve has always been there for me in all areas of my health. I think he's the best. Thank you Dr. Steve!
