This was my first and hopefully only surgery and I was a nervous wreck about it! Dr. Sarantos’ bedside manner was so comforting and genuine. He made me so much more relaxed and I felt so safe knowing he was taking care of me. I couldn’t say better things about him truly.

He did my colonoscopy I ve had several before but when he did mine I woke up in the middle of it that was painful then the next day I was in the hospital for a week I went septic. My infectious doctor said it was caused more then likely from dirty tools used during the colonoscopy
