Dr. Monson brought to the U.S. from Ireland and UK 20+ years of expertise in endoscopic colorectal surgery. He has trained numerous surgeons and written peer-reviewed articles on minimally-invasive procedures. For me, this meant that instead of major surgery with possibly major unpleasant recovery and side effects, I had an ambulatory procedure and was able to leave the hospital the same day. He also made sure that I wouldn't miss a planned trip to Ireland! I'd trust him with my life.

Dr John monson is a lifesaver to me. Had the dr when he was a dr in Rochester I almost died the good dr. Took care of me with surgeries he performed. Dr. Monson was welled versed in his field. I highly recommend him if ever I had to have that type of care again I would fly to Orlando Florida from Binghamton New York so he could take care of me again excellent Doctor

Dr.Monson is my super hero. I had been sick for so long and seen so many different doctors. I kept getting sicker. Eventually I found a new GI Dr. whom sent me to Dr. Monson. He performed surgery which was very challenging because of my condition.I am still on my road to recovery. Every day is getting better. My family and friends are also very thankful. The past couple of years has also had an affect on them. In closing I thank Dr. Monson. I highly recommend him.Best wishes on future endeavors
