Dr. Corallo and most of the staff whom I encountered were very friendly and helpful. I came to the doc with a long standing, very troubling issue which no previous doc could help. He optimistically offered one treatment, telling me that it had helped a lot of people. He also said that there were other options if that didn't work, mentioning one specific approach. Well, when it didn't help, I contacted the doc again about moving forward with the other option. Oh no, we don't offer that. What?? Can you refer me to someone. No, I have no idea who does it. Built up my hopes then shattered them. But he was friendly all the while . . . .

During a routine colonoscopy I was diagnosed with appendix cancer. Very rare finding, and I was immediately referred to Dr. Corallo. He was very thorough and informative. I was scheduled for a resection immediately and the surgery went smoothly. I would highly recommend Dr Corallo great bedside manner and office staff.

Dr. Corallo is an amazing person and Doctor. He is very passionate, has a well of patience, and really truly cares for his patients. He performed an incredible surgery on me that not only corrected my medical issue, but liberated me from another issue that I was suffering from. He has surrounded himself with a wonderful staff, that is positive and worked hard to help me while in his care. He is truly a special person, and has a wonderful soul. I have never met such an amazing Doctor, and I am forever grateful to him for giving me my quality of life back.

Dr. Corallo and his office staff were great! I was hospitalized due to a horrible internal thrombosed hemorrhoid that was swelled and had a clot, bleeding a lot. I ended up being discharged without surgery and went to his office on Monday. Was scheduled for surgery by Thursday and recovering now. I appreciate how fast they got me in and I know soon I will feel much better.

We met Dr. Corallo under the worst circumstances, because due my husband's complex conditions, none of my his surgeries went as expected, but his professionalism, level of care and bedside manners are impeccable. I'm grateful because he was kind and patient, even when my husband was bitter, frustrated and angry. He was also compassionate and honest with all my questions and concerns.

I* had major colo rectal surgery by Dr, Corallo and he was able to do the surgery and re-connect everything so I did not have a colostomy. He and Dr. Lago saw me everyday when I was in the hospital. They explained things so well and take their time with you and make sure you understand everything.

I highly recommend Dr Corallo. He assessed my situation upon an emergency room visit to Northwest Medical. He is very upfront and honest. Although no one wants surgery in my case it was unavoidable. I was very happy with the out come after the surgery. I know he took the extra time and care to make my life recovering from the operation as comfortable as possible going forward. I know I had an extremely complicated case as I had met with many Doctors through out my 60 day ordeal. Great Surgeon!!
