Dr. Damore is the world's best surgeon! He has very successfully performed 3 surgeries on me, 1 on my husband and one on my dad! Surgery can be somewhat scary, but we have complete confidence in Dr. Damore. He gives us excellent instructions and guides us before and after the surgeries so that our recoveries have gone very well. His surgical skills have resolved our problems and brought us back to good health! He is always approachable and available for and questions! Dr. Damore is awesome!

Dr. Damore was awesome. He picked the best surgery option for me (single site robotic cholecystectomy) and was very knowledgeable. The surgery went well and I have NO complaints. I’d highly recommend Dr. Damore for any surgery and will be going back to him in the future for anything I may need! His office staff is great too. His nurse is so friendly and the surgery scheduler (Casey) was great too.

Dr. Damore and his assistant Shelli are an amazing team that made me feel welcome from the very firt phone conversation with Shelli through my post-op appointment. As a surgeon he is knowledgeable and extremely kind. He is willing to answer any question no matter how silly until you feel comfortable. He and Shelli are always on time in the office and I have never had to wait. Lastly, his surgery is like a piece of art work. After only two weeks you can barely see the scar on my neck.

Through the years I have used Dr. Damore on two separate occasions. He is very knowledgeable and and an extremely qualified surgeon. I hope to never need another surgery again but should I do, Dr. Damore will be the only one to ever perform surgery on me. He is very professional and a very gifted surgeon. I have the utmost confidence in him. His staff is wonderful and they will do everything to make you feel at ease.

I'm a retired pharmacist with 45 years of experience in both hospital and retail pharmacy. As such, I've had my share of conversations with attending physicians, surgeons, and other health care providers. Dr. Damore is an outstanding surgeon who communicates completely with his patients and leaves you confident with his abilities. I highly recommend him in meeting your surgical needs.

I met Dr. Damore in the emergency room so I was at his mercy for help. I had already been to a different hospital emergency room and released. He found the problem, advised me of my needs and followed through with my treatment until my release. I felt comfortable and confident with his advise.

Had surgery to remove abnormal lymph node in upper thigh. Following the surgery, Dr. Damore did not bother to do a post operative check or even a post surgery update. I would have appreciated some personal contact and an update. When the result of the lymph node analysis came in, he did not call to tell me the result which was cancer. I was told that news by another associate in his office...over the phone. During surgery, Dr. Damore caused permanent nerve damage.
