What People Say About Dr. Francisco Itriago, MD
I had colon surgery and was terrified of ending up with a colostomy bag. He assured me he'd do everything to avoid that and he did. That was in 2014 and I haven't had any problems since. You can't go wrong with him as your surgeon.

I went to Dr. Itriago for surgery after seeing two other doctors first. He was the best listener, and the most responsive. Office staff is great. I saw him in the Habana office, which belongs to another doctor, and is not as clean as it could be. Dr. Itriago is only there every two weeks.
