Valentino may be capable surgeon, but get ready for his God complex. He will treat you like nothing but a set of numbers and you will be hospitalized forever. His own hospital staff silent cringe at his name. Dont accept him because they say its him or nothing. Pick NOT him.

My significant other had severe Ulcerative Colitis, which led to a six month flare up, losing 40lbs, chronic pain, & trying every medication with no relief; he made the decision to have his entire colon removed. The surgeries were performed by Dr. Valentino. The entire procedure was a total proctocolectomy with ileoanal pouch (J Pouch). Dr. Valentino did a phenomenal job, & now one year later, my significant other is living a pain-free, fulfilled life! I highly recommended Dr. Valentino.

With life long colon-rectal issues, I've seen several colon-rectal surgeons, and doctors. Frankly, I thought I had the best until I was hooked up with Dr Valentino, through an emergency. I will never go to anyone else or recommend anyone else, as highly. He's an incredible surgeon and care giver. He EXPLAINS everything and he has surrounded himself with an exceptional staff. It is to my deficit that I have not had this doctor all along. Superior in everyway. Seriously

There's no doubt in my mind Dr. Valentino saved my life. His attention to detail and dedication led to finding a cancer, even when it was an unlikely outcome. He is kind and thorough, and always takes the time to go over any questions or concerns. I feel confident that he will follow up with me closely and that I'm in great hands.

Dr Valentino was very thorough in taking care of me. He explained everything so I could understand it, and took extra time to make sure all my questions were answered. I trust him and am so glad he was my surgeon. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Valentino took time with my dad to explain the cancer and treatment options. He clearly is an expert and cares about his patients.

This is, by far, the worst Dr I've ever seen. His bedside manor is below poor. He has no empathy. He is very rough. He disregards anything you say. I wouldn't recommend this surgeon to my worst enemy.

Zero stars for this Dr. He has no bedside manner, no consideration for the pain of his patients, (said you don't LOOK like you're in pain.) I feel for anyone else in his care.
