Dr. Citro did both of my hernia surgeries due to incisional related hernias from an emergency surgery. I am very pleased with the results and the way he cares for his patients.

My NP recommended a different surgeon and I sought out a second opinion. Dr Citro was my second opinion and he was able to accurately diagnose my incisional hernia. Without the second opinion and Dr Citro’s knowledge I would have been operated on the incorrect hernia. He was knowledgeable and very personable. The surgery was scheduled in a timely manner and was without incident. His staff is super nice as I called with some post op questions and they were more than patient with me. I will seek out Dr Citro for any additional general surgery needs.

I had a bilateral inginual hernia that Dr. Citro repaired for me. From my first appointment till my follow up after sugery Dr. Citro was understanding of my complaints, he explained thoroughly what would take place and the day of the surgery he really made me feel at ease. Dr. Citro is an amazing surgeon. I can't thank him enough for his honesty, integrity, skill and his professionalism. Dr. Citro runs a first class operation with assistance from his helpful staff.

Identical problem, in that the receptionist kept denying they ever got a referral and could not be bothered to check, stating it had to be sent by fax and not by an app. All I had was a fax and the referring doctors office re-sent it immediately. When I asked her could she please help, she stated absolutely not because we weren’t patients. Dumb and dumber, let alone exceedingly rude. Hung up on me too. Must be the same arrogant know-it-all others have encountered. A real shame that this attitude reflects poorly on the doctor. So I’m wondering if he even cares, inasmuch as there are quite a few bad reviews about his demeanor as well.

This doctor is good, however, my doctor had sent a referral, Citro's admin denied that they did, Dr. Citro's office called back and found the referral and left a message say so. I called Citro's office to set up an appointment, they told me again that i did not have a referral proceeded to tell me to call my Dr. to get another, i got testy, she hung up.

Dr Citro and his staff are EXCELLENT! I recently had colon cancer surgery. Fortunately it was found early. I appreciated Dr Citro’s professionalism and directness. He was easy to talk to and kept me informed through the entire ordeal. The entire process went smoothly. I would highly recommend Dr Citro and would trust him with any additional surgeries I may need. Thanks for saving my life Dr Citro!

He's knowledgeable, kind, understanding, professional, and very observant. He and his staff do their best to make you feel comfortable. Citro performed a surgery on me just a few weeks ago and I've had no problems, at all. He did an amazing job!

Dr. Brian Citro was recommended to me by my trusted family physician and I was led to believe he was one of Las Vegas' top specialists in his field. That is exactly what I found. Following successful treatment I give Dr. Citro an excellent rating and highly recommend him.

Dr. Brian Citro was an amazing Dr. He was very kind and made me feel very comfortable about the Hernia procedure that he would have to perform. I told Dr. Citro about the pain I was experiencing from a previous hernia and he told me not to worry, and that he could correct my serious problems. He did the surgery on July 12 and I had no pain after the surgery and the problem I had before was gone. Dr. Citro treated me as if I was a friend and I appreciate that so much...he put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Citro to all my friends and co-workers. Also, Angelica and Katherine from Dr. Citro's Office were very wonderful and helpful with any important questions about my health. The nurses and Dr. Montega(Anestheisiologist) at Mountain View Hospital were amazing as well. Thanks So much Dr. Citro, you are amazing and you saved my life. Dave B.

This was my first encounter with Dr. Citro and his level of professionalism, sense of humor and "bed side manner" is second to none! He explained every aspect of my pending surgery in detail. His willingness to addressed my questions and my family questions was refreshing. His office staff was also very professional and friendly. I highly recommend Dr Citro

Dr Citro was an excellent surgeon. He took the time to explain my procedure and answer any questions I had. I felt he was very concerned about how my recovery was going and again took the time to answer any concerns. His staff was excellent to work with. They were extremely friendly and helpful with all my paper work for short term disability. I would very much recommend Dr Citro to anyone.

Was referred to Dr. Citro by my primary care physician for repair of an umbilical hernia. Surgery was scheduled around my time requirements. Dr. Citro and Mountainview Hospital staff were terrific. Surgery went very well with no problems. Was back to work in 4 business days. Would highly recommend Dr. Citro.
