He did a bad operation on me, and gave me the run around. I had this surgery over three years, I now have a feeding tube and a line in my chest that I get my nutrition from. When I confronted him with, if I was your family member or another person, would you be treated me this way. He emailed me back with, I can find another doctor, he knows that he messed me up and do not want to fix it. No I wouldn't recommend him to a sick dog.

Excellent surgeon, amazing coordination of team of professionals (spectacular coordination of plastic surgery by Dr. Steven Copit). He rebuilt my abdomen correcting grossly incompetent work done in a Harrisburg hospital. He is respectful, his demeanor polite, and he carefully explained everything to me in language easily understood. He responds quickly with concise answers to inquiries. He's amazingly handsome (wow!), very "easy on the eyes" which doesn't hurt, lol. He restored my faith!

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 .
