A month ago I went to Dr. Darido for a hiatal hernia repair and Nissen Fundoplication. His office staff were great. The doctor was totally unhurried. I'm in my 60's and I have never visited a Dr. as kind and helpful and Dr. Darido. He was very compassionate and concerned about my symptoms. I did a lot of research. He is the #1 doctor in the U.S. for treating Reflux. He completely cured me, and I was walking 2 miles a day beginning my second day after surgery.

Dr. Darido and his staff are professional, competent and courteous. Dr. Darido was able to diagnose my silent reflux which caused my asthma problems and struggles for over 7 months. Subsequently, Dr. Darido performed Nissen surgery and my asthma problems went away and I feel normal again. I would highly recommend that anyone who suspects acid reflux issues to pay Dr. Darido a visit ASAP.

I am so blessed to that by divine appointment I was led to Dr. Darido. I had been dealing with GERD and a Hiatal Hernia for many years and life was just miserable to say the least. Thanks to Dr. Darido and his staff, I am now on the way to recovery from this enfermity and will be able to enjoy life again to the fullest! I definitely recommend Dr. Darido to anybody who is suffering from Heartburn, Acid Reflux, GERD or Hiatal Hernia. He will attend to you like nobody else! Thank you Dr. Darido!

I came in to talk to Dr. Darido about getting a revision from the lapband to the gastric bypass. From the minute he walked in to the minute he left, I felt uncomfortable. He checked his phone frequently and wasn't caring or kind when explaining things to me. I feel like he is a very smart doctor but not the doctor for me. He called to ask about my bad review and was snippy and rude towards the end of the call. I have since found a new doctor and am very pleased!

Dr. Darido and his staff were very courteous, and helpful. He also was very detailed with my diagnosis, wich was acid reflux caused by an hiatal hernia. The surgery that was performed was done perfect with little pain. Thanks Dr. DARIDO for always returning my phone calls when I have any questions.
