Dr. Pezzi and the staff at Central Baptist out patient surgery made my experience the best! Everyone was very compassionate and efficient. Dr. Pezzi took the time to talk to myself and my family prior to the procedure and after explaining in detail. The endoscopy staff was so kind and comforting. Highly recommended.

In this case i did tje procedure without anaesthesia (my choice). He was so considerate about causing me any pain, (really discomfort). He explained to me what was happening as he continued the procedure (i requested this) and he obliged. Being that I was conscious, i have nothing nut high praise for him.

Every aspect of my procedure was excellent - from registration to follow up, Dr. Pezzi and his staff were professional, caring, and patient. I understood everything and had ample opportunities to ask questions. Nurse Lisa was especially special!

Dr Pezzi is so caring and is an excellent doctor. He takes time with you, and is tops in his field. He went the extra mile for me to figure out why my amylase reading was high. If he left KY I'd travel just to keep him as my physician! His scheduling assistant TC is awesome as well as his nurse, Jennifer.
