Opted for aggressive surgery without informing me that my symptoms may have disappeared on their own, untreated. Resulted in years of pain. Definitely seek another opinion if this is your doctor.

Dr. Czyrko is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I have been a patient for over 20 years. She is so caring and empathetic and explains medical issues and treatment in terms u can understand. Let's face it, her area of expertise isn't something you really want to talk about. But, she has the personality and knowledge to put you at ease from the minute you meet her. I have had several surgeries in my life whether it was heart or knee or back or whatever. She is by far the best.

I have suffered from severe stomach issues for years and after not getting anywhere someone recommended Dr. Czyrko and she is truly an amazing doctor! Comfortable atmosphere and fantastic bed side manners. Even with the most embarrassing subjects Dr. Czyrko has always made me feel comfortable and always wants to make sure she has triple checked everything involved with my care. I am beyond grateful to have found her and to be receiving care from such a great, compassionate doctor.

Dr. Czyrko is an excellent, compassionate surgeon. She listens and takes time to explain fully what is going on with your medical situation. Acts promptly in emergency callings. I've been her patient for over 15 yrs and highly recommend her expertise and knowledge in this field.

There's no good way to need a colorectal specialist. It's not a fun kind of doctor appointment. But if you do find yourself in the desperately uncomfortable position of needing one, you want someone who is professional, calm, supportive, and has small hands. Dr. Czyrko delivers on all counts.

Dr Czyrko resolved a medical problem that no other MD was able to remedy . Overall she has no equal . . If you are having a problem with your intestines or colon - see this MD.

one of the best experiences, for an uncomfortable position to be in. From the moment I met Dr. Czyrko, I knew I was in the right hands. she made her best effort to make me as comfortable as possible during the excruciating period I was going thru. one of the best, and most amazing Doctors I have met in a very long time. she takes her time to answer questions, and to explain everything that is going on, and never did I feel I was rushed as is the case with most specialists.
