Dr. Cesario, is thorough, kind, and knowledgeable. She explains everything clearly and really listens to me and together we form a plan. I have not had to schedule an urgent appointment so cannot rate that one.

Excellent physician. I've been seeing Dr. Cesario for a little over five years and she has been always very helpful, friendly, and competent - five stars across the board. Hard to imagine anyone better.

Dr. Cesario and her staff were extremely professional, friendly, and made me feel at ease prior to my testing, during and after. I would highly recommend her for your colonoscopy. Thank you for all of your kindness and caring.
