I had a 2 centimeter Saliva stone in my neck for years because all the Doctors in Connecticut, Massachusetts & New York wanted to perform major surgery to remove the whole gland. I drove 6 hours to Philly for Dr Cognetti’s Sialendoscopy. My best decision, Dr Cognetti and his team were nothing short of awesome. I drove back to CT the next day with no issues and the follow up visit was done over the phone. His procedure is FAR less risky, shorter recovery time, a 1/3 of the cost and he saved the gland..????Thank You Doc and team, Great Job

I did not have a long wait, I was greeted with a smile, he asked and answered all of my questions, showed me video of the surgical area and how it was healing, and I never felt rushed.

Dr. Cognetti is amazing! He listened to everything I had to say and made sure that I was totally comfortable with my decision to move forward with surgery. My situation was elective and he pointed out the pros and cons of such and helped me to understand what he would be trying to accomplish for me. As it turns out, he did an awesome job, I am feeling well and would highly recommend him to anyone!! A real down to earth doctor!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cognetti’s for the past 2 years, upon meeting him for the first time , I liked him immediately, very down to earth, yet very professional. I find him to be genuine, very caring & compassionate. He called me the night before my surgery to ask if I had any questions or concerns, which put me at ease, & made me feel extremely confident in him. I’m ever so grateful for him as my cancer doctor.

Dr. Cognetti is a wonderful doctor & I feel very blessed to have found him & for his practice to get me in to see him on such short notice. He is a very smart, warm, caring, compassionate & such a nice person! He’s very easy to talk to & delivers the same message back. A very humble & genuine man. He called me the night before my surgery to ask if I had any questions or concerns. And he even FaceTimed with me while I was in the hospital on Christmas Day! A true gem of a dr & person:)

What a very kind man. I was scheduled to have surgery for head and neck cancer . The night before the scheduled procedure I received a phone call from Dr. Cognetti simply asking me if I had any concerns or worries that I wanted to discuss. After the thoughtfulness of that call I had no worries. Since that surgery I continue to see Dr. Cognetti and continue to find him to be kind and caring. I also show no signs of return of cancer. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Had a good experience with Dr. Cognetti in the office and during exam. However, he decided to discontinue a script after over a year of prescribing with no warning, requiring a follow up visit and saying to take OTC products in the meantime. With proper warning, this is completely understandable. To cut of a script with no warning and require a visit that will mean a 1/2 day trip to his office in Phila., very unprofessional and irresponsible.
