If you need general surgery - he's The Man! He fixed up my botched appendectomy done by an emergency room physician a few months earlier that came apart at the stitches. Ya, 2 appendix surgeries. Dr. Cribari did it right, but because I have some issues recovering from surgeries, he stayed ontop of the staff like General Patton - even came in after midnight one time. I trust this guy with my life...and that's not something I say easily. He also diagnosed a gene mutation the GP missed.
