MY EXPERIENCE BY JOYCE COVELESKIE
“ I had Discectomy and Laminectomy on my L4 & L5; When he operated he noticed the same problem starting on my left side and was able to correct it. My surgery lasted for 2 ½ Hours at the Coordinated Health Hospital located in Bethlehem where I stayed overnight for observation. The hospital staff were amazing, caring and friendly and the food really good. I had a little discomfort after surgery, but nothing extreme. No Drugs were needed except Tylenol . I had a little numbness in my Right toe, but it lasted for 2 days ( Doctor told me that could happen) but they got me up the next day and had me walk and do the stairs in Physical Therapy which I climbed with ease. It felt so good. I just adore this man. I know he might not be a miracle worker, but to me he is. ”

Able to return to work as a Painter in 2 months!
“ I herniated my lumbar disc. Dr. Loguidice was able to fix it for me, and with the help of my Physical Therapists Sid Stoddard and Katrina Schmidt, I was back to work in 2 months. This was very important to me, as I own my own business. I can't thank you enough! ”

Best Doctor I Have Seen
“ I moved to Phillipsburg over 3 years ago. I was living in Bergen county and went through numerous facet issues, epidural injections, neuralgia about 50 epidural injections if not more. I was in my late 20's then. We moved here because our rental was being sold and it was the best move we made. I made the appointment myself instead of going around in circles. I brought my huge stack of paperwork and right off the bat he said I needed fusion surgery. Dr. Loguidice has a great bedside manner and tells how it is which is what I like. I hate when doctors never gets to the point. He is great. ”
