Dr. Speranza diagnosed my issues quickly and accurately. The surgery she preformed was successful and I feel like a new person! More than that, though, Dr. Speranza was very pleasant to work with. She was always cheerful and personable, which helped me feel very at ease and comfortable to discuss my issues and work with Dr. Speranza. I do strongly recommend Dr. Speranza to anyone having issues with their ‘southern region’.

Dr. Speranza has seen me through two highly successful surgeries and has counseled me on options along the way. I consider her to be one of the most compassionate and patient-centered doctors I have ever encountered. Combine that with her expertise and skill as a surgeon, she’s the very best. Dr, Speranza holds herself and her staff to a very high standard. Despite the horrors of my illness, there was never a time when I didn't actually look forward to my office visits. The same can be said for my husband. Dr, Speranza and her staff recognized that my illness didn’t just impact my quality of life, but his as well. She always showed genuine concern for his well-being. We were people and she cared. Diseases of the gut aren’t pretty and it’s easy to succumb to feelings of hopelessness. One of the things for which I am most grateful is that that Dr. Speranza never gave up on me, even when I wanted to give up on myself. She stuck with me and gave me back my life.

After 26 years of horrible pain, I finally found Dr. Speranza. I related my health history to her and my concerns. Since she employs a scribe, she doesn’t stare at her computer while you are talking. She actually looks you in the eyes. Afterward, she grabbed my hand and said, “We’re going to get your life back for you.” I can absolutely say that she delivered on her promise. After doing 6 different tests on me, we had the only treatment option that made sense. No other doctors even considered doing these tests. After my surgery, (which a visiting nurse declared looked “perfect”), I have a whole new life. Dr. Speranza is the best!!!

Dr. Speranza and her team were a great comfort to me and my family on the procedure I needed to have done. She explain everything that was going on and what she was going to be doing to correct the issue putting my fears to rest. After the surgery and recovery process, everything is back to normal. I would recommend Dr. Speranza and her team to anyone with no hesitation.

I am completely satisfied & so happy with Doctor Speranza! She is thorough in talking & informing you with your initial visit! When time for surgery she came in & talked to me and asked me my concerns & told me what would be happening & she was very confident in the procedure. After surgery the nursing staff was great! But am thoroughly impressed with Doctor Speranza and her skills and her team! Bowels moving following day & hardly any pain! Hard to believe everything working day after surgery

Went to the Sawgrass surgical center with my girlfriend for a procedure Dr Speranza was going to do. The doctor cancelled the procedure because my girlfriend was panicking because of the procedure. Dr Speranza was not at all comforting, sympathetic, or professional in any way shape or form. HORRIBLE BEDSIDE MANNER! I would recommend you go to someone else who will actually treat you like a human being and show some compassion.
