Patient Comments (6)

Excellent surgeon; it’s refreshing to work with a surgeon who is not condescending and explains surgery details, risks, etc; more importantly, this doctor believes in obesity as a disease. Compassionate to his patients and passionate about his work. Wish there were more like him!

Dr. Bonanni was treating my husband and upon questioning him on his symptoms. Dr. Realized that I was the one with a serious problem. Come to find out I had a ZENKER DIVERTICULITIS and had to operate on me. I give him a 5 star. All the way.
