My expierence on 11/18/22 was with PA, Jason Welsch. He was very personable and he tried to help the best he could, very nice man Considering my insurance being medicaid was only allowed for an office visit and not much further trShow moreeatment. I'm in a lot of pain and was pretty disappointed I couldn't been relieved of some that pain on my visit with a shot of some sort. I was referred for further testing and to a Specialist which was retired. So added to me having to do the searching to find and oncologist myself. Otherwise, I would recommend those who are in need for spine help to the office, that is if your lucky enough to have them in your network. I felt like I accomplished no relief and was back to square one when left there. No real answers about my results. Aside from need better testing than ct scan w/contrast already had. Was referred for an Mri w/contrast now. I just wanted some real answers to my medical issues.
Dr Rinella took time with me even at the end of the day to explain my MRI results and give me not just a treatment plan that made sense to me, but give me my hope back. I haven’t been able to walk without pain in 6 months. I told Show morehim I have to be able to walk down the aisle next September and he said “not only will you walk down that aisle, I’ll make sure you’re able to dance all night too!” Hard to find caring doctors like that these days, but so grateful that I did! (And the staff is equally as amazing as him!)

More About Dr. Anthony Rinella, MD
Dr Rinella has always been the doctor everyone wants.....he's a great listener, explains things so you understand and always answers your question honestly. I've had 2 surgeries from Dr Rinella and have returned to my normal functions and thank him all the time for making me normal again. There are few doctors that travel to foreign countries and provide their services at no cost to people in need so they can have a normal life again. Three cheers for Dr Rinella
Dr Rinella gives you straight talk. He doesn’t immediately jump to Surgery to try and solve your spinal problems. He is truly compassionate and hardworking.. he fixed the issues with my neck where four other surgeons has failed to do so.
I have just completed my 5th back surgery and Dr. Rinella is absolutely fabulous. This by far has been my easiest recovery to date. I am very happy with the results.
