Patient Comments (6)

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....more

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...more

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.
