I DO NOT recommend Dr. Joesph S. LoPresti. I was asking him questions for my own understanding of the treatment about to be performed and he started yelling at me! He seemed so angry at me for no reason and I asked him if there was a problem and he said that I kept questioning his opinion. He doesn't explain well just like the other reviewer said. He was so aggressive that it made me very uncomfortable and afraid of him. I refused to have anything done after that and I will not be returning.

Dr. Lopresti repaired my hernia about 6 years ago - all went well and is well today. I saw him once, knew what had to be done and scheduled me in for surgery right away.

Currently serve in the military, surgeon was recommended for a procedure. Very little of his time is telling you about the surgery, you will barely see him or keep him in the room to discuss the procedure. He provided no post-op and when complications came, he refused to speak with me in regards to the possibly of it being surgical related. Have to seek another physician to provide care for complications. Do not recommend.
