My 90 year old mother who suffers from Alzheimer's had a fall and cracked some vertibrai, and luckily Dr. Alongi treated her at the hospital. After she was released she was really struggling as the injury exasperated her sciatica and she was in alot of pain. I live in Texas and called Dr Alongi to see what could be done. First let me say the he is the most patient, caring, kind and gentle doctor I have ever met. Everytime I called him he promptly called me back. It took several phone calls as I was the go between Dr Alongi and my three siblings. He recommended Kyphoplasty surgery and was so confident that it would help my mom that I insisted to my fearful sibs (because of her age) that we have it done. I am here to tell you that it changed her life and I believe she would not be alive today if it wasn't for him. I can't say enough about Dr. Alongi and his staff, they are truly amazing. I highly recommend him.
Dr alongi resently did my acdf surgery. He sat with me the whole time in the OR before surgery and made sure i was okay. Hes an amazing doctor. However the hospital stay at huntington hospital wasnt as plesant.
Best orthopedic practice on Long Island! Care, kindness & professional expertise are shown each visit-highly recommend!
Dr. Alongi performed my second lumbar surgery. This surgery was much more invasive and extensive. I am healing well and faster than the first surgery (different practice and doctor). I got my initial appointment within days and had surgery within 8 days of my appointment. I walked in the office with 3 compressed nerve roots bent at a 90 degree angle and woke from surgery able to stand up straight with out pain. Dr. Alongi has an amazing bedside manner and is a true doctor. He carefully listens and CARES about his patients, their fears and opinions. He is not pushy with anything, he is direct and explains your options. Together you decided on treatment plan which you are most comfortable. While in the hospital, Dr. Alongi came to see me personally and explained how my surgery went. I never had a surgeon personally see me in the hospital after surgery. He has privileges at Huntington Hospital and I was AMAZED at the care I received. Dr. Alongi is one of two medical doctors I trust. His staff is amazing. The entire practice is gem. No wonder my entire town referred me to him!
A TRUE Doctor. Dr. Alongi performed my second lumbar surgery. This surgery was much more invasive and extensive. I am healing better than the first surgery (diff. practice+ doc). I got my initial appt within days and had surgery within 8 days of my appt. I walked in the office in extreme pain bent over and woke from surgery able to stand up straight with out pain. Dr. Alongi has an amazing bedside manner and is a true doctor. He listens, cares and you work together to find your best treatment
Had surgery with dr alongi and just want people to know he's one of the best doctors in New York, had 2 disc pressing my nerve going to my legs and after surgery I can honestly say I'm a brand new man, no pain, everything happened as dr alongi said, don't wait if you have any back or legs pain go see him right away, just felt I needed to do this since I came out so good I feel like I own him this.
Dr. Alongi was the one who did my revision surgery. I had a previous surgery years ago from another physician that was, to say in the nicest way, done incorrectly and unsatisfied. Dr. Alongi fixed my back and improved my life greatly. I can not thank the man enough for what hes done for me. also one of the nicest caring men I've ever met. he is softspoken, kind and caring
Dr. Alongi is one of the most caring men I have ever encountered in health care. He took time to explain every detail of my injury and explain all options for treatment. he is a kind soft spoken man. I would recommend him to anyone
Dr. Alongi is one of the Kindest caring Dr. I have in encountered in my years of visiting many, many types of specialists. He will go above and beyond to help you understand the diagnosis and options for treatment.
He's a great doctor
Dr Alongi is an excellent doctor. I've been to many spine surgeons on Long Island and also NYC. By far, Dr Alongi was the best surgeon I encountered. He has a pleasant bedside manner and was able to diagnose my condition quickly. I subsequently went on to have surgery with Dr Alongi which is the best decision I ever made. I am back to all of my activities including golf and dancing. I wish I would have met Dr Alongi sooner.
I waited over an hour, sitting w/ terrible sciatic pain. Each time I approached the front desk to ask "when?" they answered rudely and sent me back to my seat like a 1st grader. When they finally brought me back it seemed the drs. were just chatting w/ each other while a roomful of (many elderly) patients just waited endlessly. He gave me an accurate dx of spinal stenosis. He had very little to say in the way of explanation. No bedside manner. I have found a gifted, lovely doctor at Lenox Hill. He will do my surgery.
Dr.Alongi saved my life. I had a very bad car accident, which I was very hurt, my lower back. Dr. Alongi did surgery on me, my lower lumbar was corrected, and because of him, I can walk.Thank you Dr. Alongi.
Dr. Alongi is first and foremost a kindhearted gentleman who speaks to his patients calmly and listens with open ears. I am quite petite so Dr. Alongi adjusted his body language and made himself shorter so he could make professional eye contact with me. I had a previous fusion done by another surgeon (whom I will not mention) that did not turn out well. Less than a year after the first surgery I was having complications. My original surgeon was rude and curt with me and brushed off my pain as "studying the wrong way." As anyone that suffers from back or neck pain hearing such an unscientific diagnosis made me feel disheartened. I immediately ended my patient/doctor relationship and requested another surgeon. From the get go Dr. Alongi was spot on with his diagnosis and order the proper tests to prove his theories. He also directed me to all other necessary doctors. After having one surgery I did not want to have another. Dr. Alongi didn't want the same for me as well so he tried every form of conservative therapy for months. We both knew it was time for a second surgery after lack of improvement. I felt absolutely confident that he was the proper surgeon. The surgery went great and I was kept very comfortable and pain free in the hospital but most importantly at home. My after care treatment was wonderful. I am still in physical therapy and slowly getting better. God bless Dr. Alongi!
