I had a hernia operation that was not successful. I had to have a second surgery in order to repair the hernia, which was performed by a different surgeon.

I have been dealing with them since aug it’s now October and if you even get a real person to answer then your lucky!!

Dr. Charles Dolce new phone number is 623-584-4882. He is a great doctor. He was patient with me and took the time I needed to explain my care. I called him at the phone number listed after his office moved locations and was directed incorrectly. The number I listed above is his new office.

I had an emergency surgery and had Dr. Dolce as my surgeon. He was kind and caring. I have never felt rushed with him. He answered all my questions and even drew pictures to make sure I understood how everything worked and what he was doing. His office staff is friendly and helpful and I have always gotten into the room for my follow up care within 15 minutes of arriving at the office.

I had hernia and need operation to repair. I was referred to a different doc that I did not feel 100% with. I then did my own research and found Dr. Charles Dolce. He has all the right credentials, specialized training, honor student, board certified, Which for me is an absolute requirement for someone who will be operating on me. But what really won me over was his calm & kind manner. He allows any/all questions, explain things in layman terms, which help me understand what needed to be done.

Very caring. I had to have surgery right away. He came in that morning and explained. I felt assured. My office visit two weeks later was relaxed and caring. Awesome doctor.

Dr. C. Dolce is very attentive to my needs and concerns and he was able to correct my medical issue. I continue to see Dr. Dolce as part of my recovery and pursuits of a leaner, healthier life.
