Started with stage 1 colorectal cancer. I kept asking about more follow up to make sure there was no residue. He dismissed all my concerns and didn’t feel the need for 6 months follow up. Now I am one year later with stage 4 metastasis, because he couldn’t be bothered to listen to my concerns. If he would have listened an and not brushed me off . I would be looking at the future with my 5 grandkids not preparing to leave them

These people literally ruined my life. Before my surgery they checked 3 week old blood result 12 hours before my surgery. There was some nonsense false alarm and they took forever to accept the other offices results. Im a young person and only had so much saved and had to make new living arrangements. Job already replaced me. Would have lost my car too had i not been a little fortunate. This drs nurse took no responsibility and was very snotty too. Unbelievable and so unprofessionalwhichbis what his other reviews on health grades say. I got my insurance to Cleveland clinic and im a happy healthy youngman. Absolutely no help from this office whatsoever you actually made me lose quite a few months

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.
