    Doctor Citro did my colonoscopy. It was my first, and after hearing bad things about another Vegas doctor, I was apprehensive. Very happy with him and his staff.

    Would NEVER COME HERE AGAIN. The office staff is completely out of line and needs to be replaced with real professionals. The "supervisor" was the absolute worst. Upon arrival for my specialist refered surgery, the "supervisor" complained that I called during office hours when she wasn't working to give health insurance information to the front desk (??? Uhm ok but you're open...) then yelled at me and told me to sit in the office for as many hours as it takes for her to run paper work.

    The office staff is rude and uncaring. Very unprofessional, the doctor seems great but needs to do something about these rude people. Their message machine states that they take a lunch at noon and was told by the staff that they would be at lunch at noon however when I came at 11 they told me they were going to break and would not help me. All I needed was to pickup my paperwork. This was very frustrating considering I live 15 miles from this facility.

    makes diagnoses without any concrete information, prior medical records from treating physicians. does not listen well; keeps repeating the same question(s) I would not recommend him to anyone. Go elsewhere found him to be somewhat of an alarmist - totally unnecessary when he doesn't have all the 'facts and figures.' Will never see him again!
