Hi have no issues with the quality of care provided by Dr. Accurso. However, in discussing my condition in the pre-appt, I was told the procedure would be considered a screening, which my insurance covers. The doctor either changed his mind or forgot, but it was coded as diagnostic, which my insurance does not cover. So now I have to foot the entire bill. They did not make any mention of this in their system, so they cannot/will not make a correction. This is sloppy at best, dishonest at worst.

Although I would prefer not to have to go to any doctor, Dr. Accurso makes it a pleasant experience. He values your time and listens to you. His staff is super courteous (without being phony) and his facilities are clean and comfortable.

While pharmaceuticals are good in some cases, our medical community insist on just treating our symptoms. I suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome and have many symptoms from it. It is a very real thing. Unfortunately, doc's are used to treating the symptoms and not the problem in the first place. This method of treatment creates a whole new hell for the patient. I went to this doctor for professional advice and help for LGS which I got absolutely no help or direction with. I won't be seeing him again!

During a recent office visit & EGD, Dr. Accurso & his staff were all professional & attentive. They were obviously concerned about me & reassuring to both my husband & I. In the procedure room, each member of the team warmly introduced themselves by name & identified their role on the team. The simple gesture of the nurse supportively squeezing my hand as the anesthesia began added to my confidence in all who were caring for me & helped me relax. I highly recommend Dr. Accurso & his staff.

I have found Dr. Accurso to be not only an excellent physician, he is also a caring person who is in tune with his patients needs and concerns. I had two colonoscopies done over a decade apart performed by him and as long as he is still practicing when I need my next procedure, I would not go to anyone else.

Dr Accurso was referred to me by my Internist, of whom I respect his opinion. I visited Dr Accurso over six years ago for my first of three colonoscopies. His office staff was very accommodating and efficient for scheduling appointments, and Dr Accurso himself and his professional staff prior to and during the procedure demonstrated excellent bedside manner, keeping me at ease during my initial anxiety. His pre-op preparation instructions were easy to follow, and I had no issues afterwards.

Dr Accurso is great. I had an upper stomach issue that sent me to the ER twice. I went to another doctor who put me through test after test after test under the assumption it was my gallbladder. I THEN went to Dr Accurso and he diagnosed me within 2 minutes of the exam me telling me it was muscular. I went to physical therapy to address it and the pain is gone. In addition, he is kind, patient and makes you feel very comfortable. I continue to go to him. HIGHLY suggested!

From the moment you walk into the office you will know this is the best doctor's office you will ever visit. The office staff, nurses and doctors are top notch. I have had 3 procedures done in their surgical center and I cannot say enough good things about how my care was handled. They are professional, caring and helpful. I would recommend this group to anyone that needs digestive health care.
