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 just had gallbladder surgery from Dr. Damore. I could not ask for a better doctor. There were no problems and I was up and going in 2 days with hardly any pain.

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.

This is my second surgery with Dr. Damore. Dr. Damore listens to his patient's concerns, answers their questions, displays professionalism and has an excellent reputation in the medical field as a superb surgeon.
