Dr Monson treated my elderly mother’s colon cancer. He was so kind and patient with her. He spoke directly to her, not to me like so many doctors do, as if she were deaf or uninportant. She can be a bit of a complainer, but he always got her laughing. Such a rock star of a surgeon with the least “diva” attitude. We can’t thank him enough.

My gratitude for the treatment received from Dr. Monson and staff. The very thought of cancer surgery, and hospitalization was very scary, so I asked God to guide me to a doctor that was a good listener, caring, and had lots of patience. I felt comfortable with him the first time I met him. After many months of testings, one of the toughest times of my life, God used his hands to perform the surgery. His staff is exceptional and his professionalism speaks for it.

Dr John Monson operated for the excision of a precancerous lesion when he was at the University of Rochester. He perforated my rectum which resulted in a two week stay in the ICU. He then discharged me with perintonitis. I had two go back to the hospital for two more weeks for a course of kidney destroying antibiotics He visited 3 times over the month. He is not a good doctor.

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.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
