Patient Comments (1)
in Scranton, PA |
Dr. Desantis was very personable and professional. He explained everything in detail and left me with no questions. After my first consultation I left feeling confident that he was the right Dr for me. Before surgery he went over everything to expect during conscious sedation. My pain was very well managed during the procedure and Dr. Desantis and his team kept me feeling calm and comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
