My happiest moments are when patients come back after surgery and whatever problem they came to me with is no longer there.

Philosophy of Care

To me the patient always comes first. I believe it is essential for patients to have a clear understanding of their condition and treatment options so they can better partner in medical decision-making. People should always come first, and that’s why I always treat each patient with empathy and respect.

Dr. Johnson is [...] sensitive to all my mental & physical health & problems. He also explains everything.

I found the staff & physician very courteous and listen to my needs.

After first appt with Dr Iuliano was referred for MRI & Nerve Conduction Study. Referrals were not sent by his office. Wife had to call and follow up after about a month and a half. After this appt was referred for Steroid Injection. Wife just called today, 11/9 and referral had not been sent by Dr. Iuliano. I am in pain and this injection can possibly give me some relief. They need to do the referrals that the doctor is recommending. They are really doing a very poor job. My wife had to take time from her work schedule to follow up with them and get them to send the referral.

Dr. Iuliano had not even looked at my MRI before entering the exam room, in which I waited at least 20 minutes after my vitals were taken. He did not offer any remedy...I had to ask. It was like pulling teeth! The only useful info I got from this visit was that surgery would not help arthritis of the spine and his office did not do injections.

Dr. Luliano is the first doctor to identify [...] birth defect. I think he is excellent & I appreciate him studying my MRI and then calling me right away. Thank yoU!


Dr was very good easy to talk to.

This was my first experience with this doctor, and I came away with my questions answered and an order for further tests to evaluate my medical need.

greatly relieved to have a diagnosis and a plan on how to proceed.

Thank for helping.

This was the first time I visited this office, so my experiences are somewhat limited. I was surprised at the length of time between the visit and my scheduled surgery.

felt my provider just did not care about problems that were not his

he was kind gentle and looked me in the eye when he spoke.

There was so much information at this visit that I couldn't make notes of it all nor remember all that was said. It would have been good to have a printout of the options of treatment available that I could look over later. It is an important matter and I need to have all options well understood.

Was very happy with quick time that I got in to see the Dr for the first time. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Everyone was very helpful.
