Dr. Celebrezze performed my colonoscopy. Though he may have a reputation for being a good surgeon, found him to be demeaning. He seemed intent, in my opinion, on impressing everyone around him that he's the smartest in the room. I felt insulted. Also, he also failed with a colonoscopy to identify my problem that a surgeon in another practice subsequently found with an anoscope and resolved before I left his office.

He spends as much time with me as I need and explains everything. He is genuinely caring and concerned and is happy to explain over again to my family. I live 4 hours away and he is always accommodating to my schedule. He responds to messages I post on the Healthchart site. He performed 2 major surgeries on me and both were very successful and easy to recover from. I cannot imagine going to anyone else.

Listens to you and explains in layman's terms what the cause is and explanation of the surgery, if needed.
