Caring, sincere, knowledgeable, professional; ....... words that describe Dr. Joe Cresanti. I have been suffering with various degrees of sciatica over the last six years. I have sought help from various doctors over the years, and have been told that other than surgery, not much can be done to help me. The causes of my sciatica will heal over time. I just needed tolerate the pain, with a little help of medication, and my body will do the rest. They were right. Slowly, the pain would diminish and I was able to be functional again. Unfortunately, this became a reoccurring cycle. I decided to visit Dr. Joe, due to the urging of a friend who has been a patient of his. Dr. Joe said; ""yep, you've got a problem."" However, he told me that he had some ideas to help strengthen my back and minimize the reoccurring discomfort. Dr. Joe's plan makes sense. Strengthen my back, improve my posture, and help my body heal. Dr. Joe made me feel that we are a team. He is very encouraging, which makes me want to work diligently to achieve our goals. I truly appreciate Dr. Joe's compassion and dedication.
