All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

"I became a patient of Dr. Pozzessere after meeting with him to discuss his opinion and what options he would recommend for repairing my umbilical hernia. Dr. Pozzessere has the attributes you are looking for in a doctor - he is knowledgeable, experienced, and has a plan. Most importantly he is comfortable and takes the time to explain these plans to his patients clearly."

"Dr. Pozzessere is very professional, caring and a highly competent surgeon. I was expecting a hernia repair and thanks to his thoroughness, he repaired 4 hernias robotically. I was happy to find I was only sore - not in pain after surgery and did not need any narcotics. His office staff is wonderful and caring also. TY Dr. P!"
