My recent visit to the West Florida General Surgery Center was absolutely wonderful. The staff was courteous, fun (but professional) and efficient. The consultation was on point and I did not feel rushed. Dr. Comitalo was very thorough and helped me feel quite comfortable with my options. He came highly recommended and I certainly understand why. The entire experience was most impressive!

My mother had an appointment for a consult with Dr. Comitalo. The staff were friendly and greeted us as we entered the office. Our wait was mininimal, as we had completed the paperwork the had emailed us, before arriving for our appointment. Once taken to the exam/consultation room, it was only a few minutes before Dr. Comitalo came in and spoke with us. He was patient and very clear in his communication. We left very satisfied with the information we had been given. I myself had been a patient of Dr. Comitalo's about 8 years ago. I was pleased with his communication skills with us, making sure we understood the situation and the options. There were two surgeries by Dr Comitalo and I was pleased with the results and recovery. I feel confident in recommending Dr. Comital as a general surgeon.
