Nancy Silberman,
Farmingdale, NJ spinal fusion
I had a two level spinal fusion on L4L5 and L5S1 in September of 2010. While I am still on the mend, I am glad I selected Dr. Frank P. Cammisa out of the five doctors I saw elsewhere. I liked his procedure and the way he explained it. I know he is very busy, but he had time to explain everything. Questions that I had later were always returned via email in a timely manner. Also, I was very grateful for the superb nursing care at HSS. For my first time staying at a hospital for a week, I was put at ease by the nurses. Both the day nurses and night nurses were wonderful to me. When I came home and had questions about follow-up care, Yvonne Rosario always answered my questions and reassured me when I needed reassuring. The physician assistants Theresa and Vanessa are great, too.
