Was under a different doctor for 8 years and changed to dr Corelli, after just a month I had surgery and was made well. Finally a doctor who would listen and has made a huge difference to my life I am no longer so sick and am well again after 8 years. The best doctor ever she listens and cares

Our visit was with Dr Covelli when my husband was having trouble with swallowing. She was compassionate, kind, and took time so we understood what happened and what was next. Luckily he hasn’t needed to return and we were very grateful to find such a great Dr to solve his issue. Thank you Dr Covelli and yes, we will recommend you to all!

First of all, Dr. Covelli came highly recommended by my Primary Care doctor. I specifically asked for a female GI doctor. I am 66 years old and have never had an IV, any procedures, never been ill or in a hospital. Dr. Covelli put me at ease the moment she came into the room. She listened, understood where I was coming from and explained everything. She was kind, attentive and most of all reassuring. After the procedure, I immediately had results in my hand. I would recommend Dr. Covelli to anyone in the area that needs her special training. Her staff also spoke very highly of her, stating she was a very thorough and excellent Medical doctor and they loved working with her.

Husband and I had first "new patient" visits recently. Husband to set up first time colon screening and I had more complicated issues involving history of Achalasia. The staff were absolutely the most caring and compassionate folks! Dr. Covelli was AMAZING!!! She listened, explained everything and made us feel mentally better about our future care. She really is a true physician and we feel so very blessed!! The entire team was beyond 5 stars. Thank you! Thank you!

Dr. Covelli was so refreshing! She actually spent time with me, asking questions and helping me instead of a 5 minute talk on why I should have the procedure. She explained the results to me in detail. A very caring informative doctor!!

Dr. Covelli is an incredible Doctor. You can clearly tell that she is in her profession because she is a caretaker and a healer by nature. When you meet with her, she really takes her time to listen to you and explains everything in terms that you can understand. I have to travel 30 miles each way to get to her office and quite honestly, if she moved further away, I'd be following her there as well.

She performed a colonoscopy on me in 2014.I was informed the results were fine. I requested copy's of the images and evaluated them at home. At that time, I discovered a polyp on the image. When I discussed it at a follow-up visit, she informed me that it was not my record; even though it clearly had my name and PII watermarked on all images. She confiscated the images and when I called to request copies of them, the practice never returned my calls. Based upon this, I would NOT recommend her.

She is very caring, actually looks at you and treats you like a human being. I am very impressed with Dr. Covelli, not like the other three gastro doctors I've dealt with in the past. She gave me suggestions that no other doc has given me, actually giving me medications to help with my chronic gastritis and IBS. And one medication to take under my tongue if the pain gets too bad. I was astonished because no other of the gastro docs ever cared enough to do that. Her staff is caring and attentive

DO NOT GO HERE!!! First, they scheduled me at the wrong location and I asked me to go to the other one that was 30 minutes away while I already took off time from work and in severe pain. Then they agreed to see me, but made me wait over an hour. Finally I was misdiagnosed and wound up in the hospital the next day!! Also, they said they would call in the prescription for what they diagnosed me with and never did which I wound up being thankful for seeing that it was not correct.

Dr. Covelli is wonderful, personable and attentive. However, her office staff and nursing staff are not AT ALL concerned with patients. If you leave a message for someone, don't expect a return call. Their phone system is awful, you can rarely talk to a real person. Voicemails are useless.

Dr. Covelli thoroughly addressed all of my concerns during my visit. Plus, she was aware of more of my medical history than I was because she had researched most of my records before we met. She was amazing and I felt completely comfortable with her as we discussed my issues. I would definitely recommend Dr. Covelli.

I showed Dr. Covelli where my pain was at the base of my rib cage near my liver, which happens to be where a normal human liver resides. She proceeded to tell me that was not my liver but my lung. She also told me no less than 4 times in the span of only a few minutes that she thought my problem was psychological even though I explicitly told her I was having physical pain and she has no psychology license and administered no tests to come to her conclusions.
