Patient Reviews

“Dr. Sanfilippo, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for a super great outcome. I am back to 98% of where I was before my back problem. Aside from some prolonged sitting & standing issues, I would not even know I had a problem. I'm more careful about lifting & my posture, but I probably should have been doing that anyway. Thank you for giving me back my life.”
