Absolutely outstanding! Dr Cesario is not only knowledgeable, but compassionate and respectful, as well. She took the time to listen to my concerns, helped navigate adjustments in medications, and made me feel at ease. Having had colon cancer two times, as well as major complications from gall bladder surgery, I am quite anxious when it comes to procedures. Dr Cesario respected my concerns and helped me feel comfortable. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Recently had a colonoscopy and was very pleased with the care received. I realize doctors and staff are very busy but it was very refreshing that Dr. Cesario took the time to explain all and did not rush with her explanations. Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Cesario and the staff for any gastroenterology problems.

Dr. Cesario was in charge of my colonoscopy and it was a breeze. From the office staff to the attending nurses and the nurse anesthesiologist. Dr. Cesario came by before and took time explaining procedure pre & post. The nurses prepped me with gentleness and efficiency. They were there following the procedure and were first class. The anesthesiologist came and put my mind to rest which reduced my anxiety big time. I would highly recommend Dr. Cesario.

I have had two colonoscopies with Dr. Cesario and she and the staff are efficient, highly professional, kind and listen to all concerns. After experiencing significant prep side effects Dr. Cesario listens and makes recommended changes unlike a previous physician.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cesario for several years. She is the best. I had an Upper GI and Colonoscopy today. I expected everything to be handled professionally and it was. I always appreciate the care, concern, and explanations I receive from Dr. Cesario. She is the best.

I had a Telehealth visit in late August and a colonoscopy just recently. As always Dr. Cesario Is easy to talk to and listens to all of my concerns. I never feel rushed or that my questions or concerns are not important. I have been seeing her since she joined the practice, and enjoy our discussions about my health. My most recent colonoscopy was handled wonderfully by the doctor and staff at the endoscopy center. I rarely have questions, as everything is explained well every step of the way. Everyone there and in the office are always professional and friendly. I have found my forever (or until she retires) gastroenterologist!

Dr. Karin Cesario had the difficult task of telling me about my terminal liver disease. She laid it out very clearly and was as kind and caring as anyone could possibly be. As I got my life in order for my wife, I did exactly what Dr. Cesario said to do. I am now 4 years out on a 2-3 year expectancy. She monitors me and adjusts my treatment as appropriate. I am now in remission and living well. She saved my life! What a gift to me, my wife, and the profession. All of the other reviews are accurate! Thank you Dr Cesario.

Moved out of town and attempted to find a different GI. I was wasting my time. Dr Cesario makes you feel like living. She is so positive in her approach to care giving. She clearly explains your problem and the practical solutions that are available to fix the problems. I now drive 2 hours just to keep her as my GI.

From scheduling my appointment with Dr Cesario to completion of my colonoscopy, I could not have asked for a better experience. The nurse taking my medical history explained the procedure in detail to include changes in colonoscopy procedures over the years. Dr Cesario was very pleasant, approachable, and thorough, taking the time to answer my questions, never rushing. The anesthesiologist was friendly and thorough as was the surgical assistant. My discharge nurse was cheerful and engaging.
