Patient Comments (3)
in Toms River, NJ |
HIghly recommend Dr Schirripa. Great doctor, spent plenty of time with us explaining my problem.
Manahawkin NJ |
Dr Schirripa was rude, condescending and arrogant and I would never recommend him to care for any human being. The hospital staff all acknowledged that he was rude and arrogant and they tolerate him. His behavior and lack of communication to the patient and to the family is unacceptable and it should be reported.
in Manchester, NJ |
Dr. Schirripa has been my nephrologist for the past 3 years. He has all the qualities a good nephrologist should have. He is always pleasant and easy to talk to; always answers all my questions and concerns, I am very happy I chose him as my doctor.
