Dr. Masiello has been treating me for the past eight years. I was referred to him by another physician after being diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis.  I was originally going to have surgery but consultations with four different neurosurgeons yielded four different opinions.   The only thing that they had in common was that they wanted to operate.  I was confused.  My personal physician suggested that I forward my MRI information to Dr. Masiello. After an initial consult he believed that he could treat me without surgery.  I enjoyed improvement and stability over the past eight years.  He also treated me for a slight tear in my left rotator cuff.  Again the surgeons wanted to cut. Dr. Masiello fixed me in one visit.  I cannot say enough good things about him.  I have referred friends to him over the years and if he thinks he can treat them he will say so.  If he believes that surgery is the best option he will give it to you straight.
