    Dr. Accetta is the best OB i've ever had. He delivered my happy and healthy baby girl. He's the first doctor i've ever seen that cares so much. After i had a bad experience with my last pregnancy he kept a really close eye on me to make sure my little one was safe and if there is something wrong he was straight up with me which i loved!

    I had lipo by Dr. Accetta and was disfigured, badly. I was not told that he only took a week-end training class in lipo. He's only a gynecologist. He damaged the nerves in my hips and thighs I have been numb since the surgeries and the results are uneven & very lumpy in appearance. He did a vaginal ultra sound looking at my ovaries which had nothing to do with lipo and did not use a condom-cover on the machine. I was diagnosed with HPV weeks, after, while in a 7 year monogamus relationship.
