Dr. D’Ambrosia … I owe you a big thank you for helping with the problem I had when I went to Rose for my last injection. I have always thought you were exceptional as a pain specialist, and I also know you’re a really good person who cares about his patients.

Dr. D’Ambrosia, some people are gifted with creativity. Some people are good at being compassionate. Some are good at making flowers grow no matter what. You are all of those and more! Thank you for squeezing me in!! I was at the point of not being able to walk, and today, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted! Be well. Always sending prayers to you and all those you love and hold dear for health and happiness. You certainly give out enough! I appreciate you!

Dr. Dambrosia is that rare physician who sets high standards for everyone that works with him. He is extremely caring, he actually listens, and he does everything he can to get you the treatment you need. Prior to moving here, I had gone to top dollar docs, (Mayo Clinic, San Fran, LA, Cedars, etc.). I would have gladly flown to CO to see him! Dr. Dambrosia is not afraid to say “I don’t know”–SO RARE in an MD– and he is patient. His goal for his patients is to get them mobile, and I am!! He is upbeat, so bright, and has an excellent staff (Terri, Rebecca, Mari). I am beyond lucky to have found him.
