Dr. Palazzo is a wonderful surgeon. He explained the GI procedure prior to surgery and gave an additional report after the surgery. I was able to go out the next day. His staff are very nice as well. Thank you Dr. Palazzo.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Prosser he just on surgeries on my husband, my mother, and I. He and his office staff has been very kind, accommodating, and gentle with all of us. I would highly recommend him for any needed procedures and would use him again in a heartbeat for any future procedures...more
