I have been a patient of Dr. Genovese for about 25 years and have found him to be extremely pleasant and competent. He has performed a number of colonoscopies on me because of a family history of colon cancer and is skilled and caring. Because I moved out of the area, I had two colonoscopies elsewhere and the experiences were not good. I now travel 90 miles to see him because, in my opinion, he is the best.

Zero start for Dr. J Genovese. I had an appointment with him for endoscopy and never took necessary images during the procedure. Had to be repeated at John’s hopkins. He referred me to another facility post endoscopy to get manommetry done. When we came back to discuss the manommetry results (6 weeks after which is the usual wait time) like we should have because he was the referring physician he was not prepared to discuss results with us. He had no clue that his practice called us to make an appointment to discuss the results. Instead he was suggesting us to do manommetry test again. When we explained the reason why we were there and that the results were delivered from Med star he got irritated. He does not like to be questioned, gets irritated when you ask him questions about the ongoing or upcoming procedure, makes decisions for patient and bedside manners are worst. What about his responsibility make Pra aware of their condition and help make informed decisions. Find another Dr.

Dr. Genovese is a wonderful doctor who seems very knowledgable and willing to answer questions. He does sometimes seem a bit rushed or distracted but I still felt he was able to thoroughly answer any questions I had and explained his medical advice well. However his office staff is rude and incompetent. The difficulty of scheduling an appointment, getting prescriptions refilled (and properly refilled), and getting messages returned caused me to search elsewhere for a GI.
