I went to Dr. Accetta today for the first time, as my prior GYN, Dr. Prystowsky had retired. I was very pleased with his attentiveness, knowledge, bedside manner and promptness. I think he is a wonderful doctor and am glad I picked him as a replacement.

I went for a yearly check up with Dr Accetta and I was appalled by his lack of bedside manner and failure to follow basic procedures. I myself as an RN of 13+ years experience could not fathom him being a recommended GYN. He was condescending and rude when I attempted to ask questions. Failed to even perform the basic breast exam which is routine for OB/GYN visits. I felt very rushed and like he only wanted to hurry and get on to the next patient.

Dr Accetta is patient and actually listens to what you have to say and answers any questions you ask. He’s been my doctor for almost 25 years. I wouldn’t think about changing doctors. If you have to wait a little longer for him it’s because he’s making time to listen to his other patients.

Dr. Accetta is wonderful! He was my ob with my son and we loved him. Today at my annual visit, he spent time listening to my concerns and really eased my mind. I left feeling 100% better than when I got there! Thank you LCWS and Dr. Accetta!
