For Dr. Norelli, the phrase ‘never quit’ holds multiple meanings.

“Never quit refers to both my patients and myself,” he says. “In some cases, getting to the root of a patient’s problem may require multiple medications and other therapeutic approaches. It’s important that neither the patient or I give up until their maximum goal is reached.”

Dr. Norelli specialized in spine and sports medicine as well as non-operative musculoskeletal injuries and amputee care.

Pain in Hip from Arthritis
“ Referred by Dr. Scarpino to try an injection in an arthritic hip to relieve pain. Support staff were pleasant and Dr. Norelli was willing to answer pre, during, and post fluoroscope injection procedure in hip. Pleasant experience offered with expertise in dealing with the issue being dealt with. ”

Dr. Norelli
“ I went to Coordinated Health to see how my bad nerve damage to the spine was in hopes of having surgery to relieve pain. I suffer from chronic pain for many years and Dr. Norelli was extremely kind and tried his best not to make my pain any worse than necessary, I would recommend Dr. Norelli without hesitation, I appreciate a doctor who is upfront and honest and would go to him again. ”

Treating Herniated Disc
“ Dr. Norelli provided solutions to the extreme pain from a bad herniated disc. The MRI he ordered resulted in clearly showing and describing the problem for other providers. Dr. Norelli was clear, explained what was wrong, what I needed to do to correct it and realistic on how long. Over a year later after other treatments I still had some pain no one could resolve. He listened, looked at what is going on, gave suggestions and prescribed medicine which made me finally forget of my pain. It's only been a week, but what an amazing week it has been. I am thankful for the straight answers to my questions. It was nice to not have my pain dismiss like others did. It is an hour to get to this office, but worth the trip! ”
