What People Say About Dr. Luca Stocchi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had colorectal surgery in June at Mayo in Jacksonville. I feel that Dr. Stocchi absolutely gave me my life back. I had suffered with diverticulitis and IBS symptoms for years. I was blown off by a GI doctor that I had been using. I took myself to Mayo and that is the best decision that I ever made. I woke up from surgery actually looking and feeling so much better. I would highly recommend Dr. Stocchi to anyone. He and his staff were very caring and took such good care of me. I honestly feel that if I had not gone to Mayo, I would have been in a very dark place with my health. Thank you again Dr. Stocchi. I appreciate your kindness and concern for me.

I ended up having a surgery I could not avoid if I wanted to live. Dr. Stocchi and his team were great during all my visits and throughout the surgical process. He and his staff are amazing at what they do. I travel far to visit his office because I've put so much trust in him. I highly recommend his services.

He sent his residents to see me one told me it was ok to sit in my own poo the other 2 told me my scans were fine even though I hadnt had any scans done. He never actually saw me.

Dr. Stocchi and his staff are extraordinary caregivers. They provided me with the best possible medical attention I could have hoped for during my Crohn's-related health challenges. I consider myself to be so fortunate that I found myself in his care, and congratulate anyone who has similarly found their way to his practice.

Post surgery visits were coded wrong, therefore the insurance would not pay the bills at all. The hospital was not willing to change the code even after multiple attempts. I ended up on a collection agency. Nursing staff working for the doctor did not reply post surgery to multiple questions directed to the doctor. Cleveland Clinic should revise codes for procedures and work with insurance companies to adequately provide support for preventive care (i.e. colonoscopy) for patients w/o colon

My husband had both a hemhorroidectomy and colonoscopy by Dr. Stocchi and hasn't been able to sit down since. My husband is in horrific pain especially when he sits or lays down. I don't know what happened during the procedures, but Stocchi is arrogant when asked about it and commented it "was merely a coincidence." I would never recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Stocchi is fantastic. He is professional, knowledgeable, personable, and up to date on current research and treatments, which is what has saved me from having major surgery two times. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with bowel issues possibly requiring invasive procedures.
