Dr. Czyrko is an amazing surgeon! Has wonderful bedside manners and is very compassionate. I was in horrific pain for two years and she resolved my problem(s). I feel so much better now and am very grateful.

Beware – Dr Jekyll /Mr. Hyde. Initially I had a very positive experience with Dr Czyrko and, as a result, she asked me to write a positive review on the internet, which I did willingly. Then I met Dr Czyrko alter ego and it was not pleasant. Following my colonoscopy at the CT Surgery Center, Dr Czyrko angerly berated me publicly in front of the staff and other patients for not taking steps which she had never told me about, not provided written instructions and never been a part of my previous colonoscopy preparations. As I tried to respond to Dr Czyrko’s accusations, Dr Czyrko just walked away. The nursing staff who witnessed the scene apologized for Dr. Czyrko’s behavior, and reported her to the administration of the Surgery Center. The Director of the Surgery Center also apologized. The end result is that I have to get a new colonoscopy and I certainly will not choose Dr. Czyrko.

I came to Dr Czyrko with great pain. She helped me immediately. There are no words to express how amazing Dr Czyrko is. She gave me my life back! Throughout the examination and medical procedure, she was very clear and informative. She is not only a very good doctor/surgeon, but also a wonderful, caring person. She really cared about me, my health and well-being. Thanks to her, I have no more pain and feel like a brand new person. I can’t even begin to thank Dr Czyrko and her staff enough for helping me.

Most caring doctor I ever met. A surgeon with a personality. A rarity. Makes you feel like you are her only patient in the world. And no matter how apprehensive you are, she puts you right at ease.

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.

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.

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.

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.
