in Edinboro, PA |
Had an ultrasound done on 1/5/2017 because of major abdominal pain when doing basic simple activities. It is now 2/23/2017 and I haven't gotten a call or my results yet. Those ultrasounds must be pretty tough to read.

10/8/16 One of the best surgeons I've come across besides a calm GREAT personality.. he just has a way, a gifted way of explaining things that just gives such reassurance for any uncertainty one may have. Thank you Dr. Joe Cocco Have not been to the office yet (appt 10/11/16) this review is from our hospital experience
He is great! Kind, knowledgeable and does a great job! Only wish he explained things a little more thoroughly but overall fantastic Doctor!

Dr. Cocco was fantastic! I saw him for a large abdominal abscess due to a complication from Crohn's Disease which Dr. Cocco discovered. I was seeing several different doctors at Hamot which could not find the source of my problems. I absolutely loved Dr. Cocco. He explained everything so clearly and was very attentive. He sat with me and answered every question I had. Just absolutely fantastic. He also performed surgery on my nephew after I had such a positive experience. Just fantastic!
