Gianelia (John) F. Guernelli, M.D.

Dr. “John” Guernelli is a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation — recognized as one of the most important specialties for addressing neck and back issues.

The greatest satisfaction I get is in reducing pain and improving patients’ comfort and activity level. It’s a wonderful feeling when folks tell me they can garden now, or walk, and couldn’t before. They go on vacation or play with their grandchildren, and they thank me.
