      I have had multiple interactions with Dr. DiRocco for some colorectal issues. He is unfailingly matter-of-fact, friendly and low-key. Excellent patient experience, particularly with, ahem, invasive procedures.
      I had an anal fistula repair just a few years ago. He was very knowledgable and his bed side manner put me right at ease. He took the time to explain everything I would be having done and go thru afterwards. He explained all the risks and possible things that could happen after my surgery. He was very soothing when I was nervous before my surgery and colonoscopy. I recommend him to anyone that's looking for a colorectal Dr. His staff is also very awesome! Everyone made the experience bearable!

      Dr. DiRocco is a wonderful surgeon and he has a great bedside manner. He listens to your concerns and is very compassionate. I would definitely recommend him.
