    I would like to thank Dr. Pecoraro and his team for a successful surgery he performed a week ago. I was referred to Dr. Pecoraro by my my other doctor when I noticed a lump in my breast. I am so happy I was referred to him! Dr. Pecoraro is so nice, very professional and most importantly caring. He genuinely does care about his patient. Even though I was so scared about upcoming surgery doctor somehow made me feel calmer. I think His bedside manners are just so calming ) I am just so grateful to Dr. Pecoraro! D. Pecoraro has a very nice and attentive assistant Katy. If I had any questions or concerns She would always answer on time over the phone. Thank you so so much!

    Dr. Pecoraro is absolutely WONDERFUL! I went to the ER HORRIBLE stabbing pain in my abdomen. They did a CT and said that my appendix looked inflamed so they would take it out. I ended up having Ilealcecal diverticulitis and having a 3.5hr surgery. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. He has very great bedside manner. He's very kind and you can tell he truly cares. At my follow up to take my staples out I was very nervous, him & staff made me feel extremely comfortable. Would very HIGHLY recommend!

    I saw Dr. Pecoraro this last Monday for the first time. He immediately knew the cause of my ailment and exactly how to treat it! To say that I was thrilled with him would be a gross understatement. He and his staff were FANTASTIC, and I could not possibly be happier with their healthcare services!

    Surgeon par excellence - our hero! He is truly the best ever & I am so thankful for him & his care of my son. I must admit I was sceptical at first-due only to the nature of my son's condition & what had to be done-but he carried us through with explanations & compassion. God bless him & we absolutely love him!
