Dr. Petraco is friendly and thorough. I never felt rushed and always understood the treatment he administered. He helped diagnose my endometriosis, which my previous gynecologists had written off as normal. He's an excellent doctor!

Dr petraco performed an emergency c-section when I had my first child 2.5 years ago. I was in a lot of pain even with pain meds until the 6 weeks postpartum visit. When I asked Dr. Petraco whether it is normal that I am still in so much pain, he said it is nothing unexpected. The sharp pains finally subsided after 3 months but I kept having pains when I sneezed the wrong way a year later. I had a second emergency c section by a different dr recently and only minor pain after the first week.

I'm the type of woman that usually picks another woman to be my gynecologist but I have to say I have never felt as comfortable as I did with DR Petraco. He was open to questions and expressed interest in my situation. He spends extra time with his patients & that's a plus for me since I usually felt like I was being rushed out of the exam room. Thanks!
