I did not find Dr. Grasso easy to talk to. So I switched to a woman doctor at St. Joseph’s Hospital. That was a good decision for me.

I cannot say I enjoyed my visit for what it was but the staff was amazingly friendly and courteous and treatment like I was family. Doctor Grasso was personable and explained everything and I could not have had a better experience than I did with what I had to have; not my first time but I will continue going here versus anywhere else and that’s saying a lot.

Came into Dr. Grasso's office for internal and external hemmorids. Decided to proceed and have a hemorrhoidectomy surgery. I have been pleased and satisfied with Dr. Grasso and his entire staff. I highly recommend them. Please do not think twice and come in. Thank you, Dr Grasso and to the staff.

Fistula repair surgery and colonoscopy. Two separate procedures. Excellent experience at the endoscopy center with Dr Grasso and the nursing and anesthesia team, considering my health issue circumstance. It's a top notch professional, caring, and helpful group there, and if I needed to, I would absolutely go back for more medical care. They do great work.
