    - in Barnegat, NJ |

    I was extremely embarrassed and scared to go to this type of physician before I saw Dr. Paonessa for my condition after being misdiagnosed by two other doctors. She, as well as her staff was extremely compassionate, professional and caring and really helped me feel as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a really professional doc in this specialty that is highly skilled. Also, I am completely healed from my condition after surgery with her.
