I've been seeing Dr Rho for over 10 years. I'm 60 years old and I've had numerous orthopedic surgeries dating back to a severe MVA in 1985. My most recent surgery was a cervical spinal fusion(ACDF) in 2011. Thankfully, I met DR Rho at Lenox Hill hospital after my cervical fusion surgery and it was a blessing from above. I still have severe chronic pain and Dr Rho not only cares for my health concerns but also cares for me as a person. I strongly recommend anyone seeking out a Dr for their chronic pain issues make an appointment with Dr Rho. In my opinion you couldn't find a better Dr in this area of expertise. Sincerely, Nick D

After a year of searching Dr Rho was the first doctor who really listened to me and was able to ask the right questions to uncover the source of my pain. He clearly laid out the options available to me so that together we could chose the management path that was right for me. His office environment is quiet and friendly and I never have to wait more than 15 mins. Very human and not a "pain factory". When I had a question about my treatment and called the office he returned my call almost immediately and answered my questions. Thanks to Dr Rho I no longer fear waking up in the morning.

I had been searching for a PM physician for a long time. I'd even tried spinal cord stimulator to help my pain, nothing worked. Finally I was referred to see Dr. Rho. He has been a lifesaver to me. Because of him, I'm now able to at least function much better with my chronic pain. I'm able to live a little bit better life. I've been a patient of Dr. Rho on and off for years. I highly recommend him.
