I have been under the care of Dr Jason Sciarretta since April 2017 with a serious infection in my foot With his wonderful knowledge, surgical skills and deep care and compassion, what looked like the possibility of losing my foot has turned into saving and healing my foot. He has kept my family informed and always showed great compassion for them. I would strongly recommend Dr. Sciarretta for any surgical needs. I thank the Lord that he was on call the day I arrived at the hospital.

I really dont know where to start!!!! First of all let me just say I am 66 years old and I am scared to death of doctors. But I had to have emergency surgery to removed my appendix. Dr. Jason Sciarretta just happened to be given my case and I know God chose him for me. I have never had such a compassionate, caring doctor. Dr. Jason made me feel like I was his only patient and he went above the call of duty to put me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr.Jason if you want a doctor that cares.

Absolutely pleased with the care of Dr. S and the courtesy of his staff. We were really in a bad spot in my hubby's care when we finally found Dr. S. I'm an RN and I'm 100% confident in him. The quality of his care, the extent of his knowledge and the RESPECT he gave us was beyond what I expected. We were pretty beat up by the time we got to him and we are once again lifted with hope and encouragement.

i don't normally write reviews but felt Dr Sciarretta deserved some extra recognition. I have a complex health history and surgical history, so most Drs are not comfortable working on me. Dr Sciarretta approached my case with confidence but was also honest about the possible risks. He took his time answering all of my many questions. I never felt rushed. I could tell he truly cares and loves his job. There's not one negative thing I could say about his care. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Thank you for sharing your experience with Dr. Sciarretta with us! We appreciate the kind words.

I love Dr Sciarretta, he seems so knowledgeable, caring, and boomes with self-confidence. I have a card I carry in my purse that says I only want him as a trauma surgeon in an emergency. if there is any wait time it's understandable, because trauma surgeons have emergencies
