    Dr. Gazzetta is the best surgeon I have ever used or experienced in my lifetime. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to anyone who needs any kind of surgery done. He truly cares about his patients and wants them to be at ease as well as for them to understand the procedure for the specific surgery that they are having to perform. In addition, prior to my appendicitis surgery, Dr Gazzetta was communicative and answered any last minute questions or concerns I had before I went under for my surgery. Most importantly, he took into consideration my allergies and made the professional and ethical decision to not put his patient at potential risk and therefore, he decided to not inject the TAPP block which is typically used to reduce pain but instead sent me home with some meds. Finally and foremost, I truly appreciate the personal commitment that he as well as his staff members have given to me. Overall, I had no complications during my surgery and the recovery time was manageable. He is great :)

    My visit was on time and very professional. I would recommend Dr. Gazzetta to anyone undergoing surgery for this reason. I had a hernia surgery scheduled on the Friday before labor day at Centerpoint. Dr. Gazzetta spent several minutes with me to answer any last minute questions he seemed to be in no rush (like several surgeons seem to be). Surgery went fine, no complications. On LABOR DAY I get a call from Dr. Gassetta PERSONALLY, to check in on me and see how I am doing! Not his assistant, not an office person and not one of the residents but Dr. Gassetta himself........... I have had a lot of surgeries in my life and never once has the surgeon called and checked on me. Let alone on a holiday! I was speechless! In a world of conveyor belt surgeries its nice to know there are still people out there that actually care about the patient and there wellbeing and not just "the next Patient"

    I was referred to Dr Gazzetta for hernia surgery. I couldn't have been more pleased by the caring, respect and communication experience I had with Dr Gazzetta and his staff. The surgery went well and recovery was about four weeks.

    Dr Gazzetta showed such compassion when dealing with my family. He truly cares about his patients and went above and beyond what you expect from your surgeon. Even the nurses that day had nothing but compliments for him. My son went in to the ER and nerves caused him to leave before the recommended surgery and Dr Gazzetta called us at home and talked my son into coming back. He was awesome and we will for sure use him again! We highly recommend him!

    Dr. Gazzetta was super informative and very caring for my father, which has a vast amount of medical issues. He was very thorough and made us feel very comfortable about the procedures that were taking place. His bedside manner was second to none. On a subsequent visit to the hospital with our mother, he stopped us and asked about both of our parents. Thank you Dr. Gazzetta.

    I was having abdominal pains and a CT scan indicated I had a perforated appendix. I was sent to the ER and was lucky that Dr. Josh Gazzetta was on call that night. He came in and performed the appendectomy around midnight. The surgery was complicated by the fact that I also had a naval hernia, which Dr. Gazzetta fixed during the procedure. The surgery was a great success and I was up and walking around the next morning. In addition to being a skillful surgeon, Dr. Gazetta has all the traits anyone would want their doctor to have. He is kind, warm, humble, gentle, understanding, caring and confident. His bedside manner will put you at ease and he will patiently address all of your questions and concerns. I give Dr. Gazzetta my highest recommendation.

    I met Dr. Gazzetta after he performed emergency surgery on me on a thursday morning. I wasn't awake and alert until the following day. He came to check on me in ICU every day before breakfast. He was a breath of fresh air. He saved my life and was in at least once every day or an associate Dr. Hardy came in once a day too. Once I was released after 9 days their aftercare was excellent and encouraging every time I saw him. I have a lot of faith in Dr. Gazzetta and would want him to do any further surgery that I may require in the future. I have recovered quicker than they expect and I am doing well. Everyone at their office was very professional, personable, and encouraging. I couldn't ask for more. He is the reason I am alive today.

    Dr. Gazzetta was very accommodating and did an outstanding job on my surgery. He answered all questions and laid out all the options beforehand for me to make a better and informed decision based on current events and local conditions during the beginning stages of the COVID19 pandemic. His staff was outstanding in working with my insurance to make sure this surgery could happen without any coverage issues. Since the surgery my follow up appointment and healing have gone well and I wish Dr. Gazzetta and his staff the very best.
