Dr. Fazzolari was kind, respectful and very responsive both during the visit and procedure as well as by telephone. He called in a timely manner with results and ensured I understood the results and the tests being done. He never seemed rushed or distracted. I always felt he was fully present with whatever we were discussing.

Dr. Fazzolari did an colonoscopy on me this week, and he was simply brilliant. There were no complications whatsoever and the outcome was much better than expected. His bedside manner is second to none and frankly even the staff tell me he’s the top gastroenterologist in the county. Trust me, this is the man you want to book, and if I could give him six stars I undoubtedly would do so!

I appreciated his straight forward yet discreet tone. When it is not his area of expertise and a reference is needed, he recommends the very best specialists.
