There is not enough I an say about how Dr Napoliello changed my life. After living with acid reflux and GERD for as long as I can remember, I am finally free of it. He is very thorough, very knowledgeable and a nice man to top it off. The team at Venice regional Bayfront health where the procedure was done was top notch also. best hospital experience ever; clean, kind, efficient, perfect!
Brandon, FL |
Scandalous practice, no care for the patient condition regardless of the pain. A small procedure for a pilodinal cyst was needed. After telling us over the phone that it could be done at the office, they declined it, charged us and sent us home with antibiotics, ignoring my wife crying out of pain. We had to go to the ER! And they never called the prescription in! Scandalous and insufficient! they also declined me talking to the dr because my wife did authorized it, but was never given a form!

Although the office staff leave something to be desired, Dr. Napoliello is an excellent surgeon. He takes time to answer questions, explains things well, and is compassionate. I would recommend him to others!
in Parrish, FL |
Dr Napoliello is a terrific doctor and surgeon! I got my life back because of him. After years of rectal bleeding and I mean years, all the pre-op testing for cancer came back negative. I had two stage three hemmoroids, another stage 1 hemmoroid and one external hemmoroids. Thanks to doctor Napoliello and his team,I am no longer anemic, hemoglobin is normal and going back to work after four short weeks! I can't thank him enough for him helping me get my life back! Thanks Doc you are the greatest

This Doctor has no regard for patient's time. The first appointment with him I waited two hours for be seen for only 5 minutes. The follow-up appointment from surgery, I waited over an hour. Today I waited over 45 minutes before getting frustrated an walking out. My time is too valuable to be sitting in his waiting room and exam room. I would never recommend this Doctor to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. David Napoliello is my first experience with a surgeon, surgery and a hospital. Although I (76) have no comparison to other surgeons, my experience has been an excellent one with both David and the office staff. Everything was handled professionally, correctly and without undue pressure to register for surgery. I chose Dr. Napoliello based on these reviews and his experience with gallbladder removal. I found him to be a no nonsense factual professional, the way I like it. Highly recommended!

Dr. Napoliello is the perfect package - a skilled and gifted surgeon and a caring human being who shows kindness and respect for each of his patients. He did my breast cancer surgery last October and a friend referred him to me after an interview with a surgeon who had not read my biopsy pathology report and grew tired of my questions. Cancer treatment is an educational process, not just a technical one. I think of him as "teaching doctor" not a "just trust me" doctor. Office staff is great too.
in North Port, FL |
DR Napoliello listens and answers all your questions. I had previous surgeries that caused several hernias and was scared to death to have another surgery. But my experience with DR Napoliello and his amazing staff was awesome.

Dr. Napoliello and his staff, Sarah and Ruth are fantastic. He really takes time to explain everything to you and answer any questions that you may have. Dr. Napoliello is extremely talented with his laparoscopic technique. I was feeling great, and able to return to my job as a physical therapist just 1 week post-op (no heavy lifting of course!!) Thank you so much Dr. Napoliello, Sarah, and Ruth for a great medical experience!!
in Parrish, FL |
Excellent doc great training and experience

Dr. Napoliello is caring and professional from preoperative visit through surgery and through postoperative visit. He takes the time to answer every question and concern. His staff, Sarah and Ruth are professional and warm. I highly recommend him!!
in Nokomis, FL |
Dr. Napoliello does an excellent job of informing the patient and family of what the problem is and how he plans to repair it. Follow up was also complete with time for questions. I never felt hurried. I was most impressed with his minimally invasive and for me, minimal pain approach. He injected a local anesthetic into the operative site and ice was the only thing I needed for pain control. I had an in guitar hernia repair.
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Napoliello is a Godsend! I have never met a doctor with more compassion for his patients. It's very rare to find someone who has been in the business for a long time and still has a passion for his work. He will go out of his way to make sure all your or your families questions are answered, he is very dedicated from beginning to end and he is honest. He doesn't dance around serious issues and will tell you exactly what the situation is but does it with concern and amazing bedside manner.
in Sarasota, FL |
I wish all doctors would take a lesson from Dr. Napoliello! Our son had a huge hernia that became incarcerated, nearly costing him his life. Dr. Napoliello did a series of operations, that I have no doubt, saved his life! He spent 4 MONTHS in the hospital and Dr. Napoliello checked in on him EVERY DAY! Including Christmas Day and Easter! There aren't enough words to express our gratitude and if anyone I know needs a surgeon, I'm recommending Dr. Napoliello!!
in Bradenton, FL |
Dr. Napoliello has a caring and professional bed side manner. He quickly scheduled me for surgery, approved an adequate hospital stay and assured all follow up care was to both our satisfaction. His staff is stellar. They promptly and courteously returned phone calls and coordinated all necessary step for a smooth and seamless operation. I strongly recommend Dr. Napoliello and his team.
in Lakewood Ranch, Florida |
Dr. Napoliello is a very compassionate and knowledgeable clinician. His clinical judgement and personal responsibility for his patients is impeccable as he diagnosed me based on physical exam only when I was afebrile and without a white count. He encouraged questions from myself and my family and answered them to our satisfaction.
