Dr. Citro was professional and did a good job removing a blood clot from my arm. He explained the procedure well and did a follow up to make sure all went well.

I was referred to Dr. Citro for hiatal hernia and GERD. He explained tests needed and what procedure I needed to fix the problem. Besides one hiccup on getting some test results from another doctor, everything went well and would recommend him.

My husband recently had hernia surgery--He was a high risk case in that he is handicapped and finds it hard to walk. Before surgery Dr. Citro made the right call in him going to a Rehab after surgery for recovery. He spent 7 days in Rehab adjacent to the hospital at Mountain View. The total event from start to finish was a success. We both would give him a 5 star!

I had surgery for an umbilical hernia two weeks ago. I just got home from my follow up office appointment with Dr. Citro. I had let this hernia build for over 2 years because of my anxiety about surgery in general, and all the things I'd seen on TV about hernia mesh lawsuits. In the initial consultation, Dr. Citro took the time to explain why the process (robotic laproscopic surgery) and the mesh itself were much improved over years past. He got insurance approval and scheduled me very quickly. Two weeks later, I am still letting the surgical sites finish healing, but I feel great and am very happy with my result.

12 years ago Dr. Citro treated me for exterior hemmoroids; three visits in office, painless and effective. 2021 I had an interior polyp and enternal hemmoroids that needed treatment. Dr. Citro said, "It's going to hurt." He didn't tell me he could manage the pain. This surgery, and recovery with basically painless, as the first time. He is a miracle worker, fast, efficient and thorough. He's the best!

I recently went to Dr. Citro to have my gallbladder removed. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon. He explained everything very well to me at my consultation and made me feel at ease about the surgery. He was professional, friendly, and you can tell that he truly cares about his patients. I also want to mention that his entire office is outstanding. They all are very courteous and have great communication skills. I would highly recommend Dr. Citro to anyone needing a general surgeon!

I went to Dr. Citro for a hemorrhoid issue. On three different visits he used the rubber band method on my hemorrhoids and have eliminated my issues. He is very professional, with a little humor thrown in, to help the stress of exposing your backside. I also would like to comment on the front office workers, they were very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Citro for this procedure.

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.

Russell – Mar 04, 2020
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.
