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.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Citro and his staff. Dr Citro performed a robotic assisted gallbladder removal and had me back home and resting comfortably within just a few hours, in spite of my numerous medical conditions. I highly recommend Dr Citro and his staff was excellent too. They were always very professional and friendly and they helped me with each step from scheduling my surgery to my follow up appointment.

Dr. Citro is the best! He made a difficult time in my dad's life so easy. He is so professional and caring and he really listened to all of our concerns. On the day of the surgery he was there for us every step of the way! The recovery was so easy compared to other surgeries and we credit him for a job well done! We cannot thank him and his staff enough for taking such good care of him!

Patient-oriented, highly skilled, efficient. Dr. Citro was simply amazing. I put off doing surgery for months until my wife forced me to go. I feared the surgical process and worried about possible lingering effects. When I met Dr. Citro, I felt at ease immediately. He had a quiet, pleasant confidence that re-assured me everything was going to be okay. It was. He did an incredible job. I was back to work in 3 days with no ill effects. If you need a hernia repair, choose this doctor.

I was referred to Dr. Citro by my primary physician for surgery. I was nervous but as soon as he walked in the room I felt at ease. His confidence, explanation, manner, and sense of humor changed my anxiety. His staff was always very helpful and polite from first contact. They guided me through the whole process for scheduling my surgery and follow up date. 2 weeks out from Da Vinci Robotic surgery and couldn't be more satisfied. Highly recommend. Will definitely call him if needed.

I came to Dr. Citro in great pain and suffering. He and his staff were great. I had surgery and then four followup appointments. At all phases of my treatment I knew what to expect and I was never surprised. All went well and I highly recommend Dr.Citro for medical treatment and care.

Dr. Citro presents honest, to-the-point, and up to date information. He offers pros and cons and provides second opinions with no bias. He is about results for the patient, taking test and lab results definitely into account, but also ASKING THE PATIENT how they feel or what they want as an outcome. It's refreshing to work with an intelligent doctor who will give it to you straight. Dr. Citro's staff is also amazing to work with. Communication is excellent from both Dr. Citro and his staff.

Dr Citro performed hernia surgery on me in May 2018. He was totally professional at every step. My surgery wasn't easy because I exercised too much after I developed the hernia, but he handled if perfectly. I would absolutely go back to him if I needed to and highly recommend him to others.

Dr. Citro did a laproscopic repair of a rt. inguinal hernia ... I previously had open repair of the left side 30 yrs ago. Recovery was much faster and with minimal pain. His office staff and surgical team were very efficient and professional which put me at ease each step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Citro to anyone in need of an excellent surgeon.

Dr. Brian Citro is the worst doctor I have ever encountered in my 72 years of living. I went in to see this doctor for external hemorrhoids and all he did was poke and ram my anus half killing me with no respect for my condition, then told me I had a Butt Rash. I was appalled at his lack of bedside manner. Avoid this doctor if you value your sense of pride and problems.

Dr. Citro and everyone in his office was fantastic. He took the time to explain my procedure and and the steps that needed to be taken. my gallbladder surgery was quick I felt fantastic within a few days. the girls in the office were very helpful with my scheduling and helping me get the correct forms filled out for my work and Union. hopefully I will never need his services again, but if I do..I will feel confident in the care I will receive.
