I was sent to Foris Surgical Group by my family doctor after a serious MRSA infection. Dr. Artusio was able to see me in an emergency, remove the infection and oversee my care within minutes of the call from my doctor. The office staff and nurses were excellent. I remained in their care for four weeks monitoring the infection and wound care. Amy, the nurse who I saw regularly for my wound care, was knowledgeable, patient and exceedingly caring. In fact, Dr. Artusio’s entire practice exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend Foris Surgical Group.

Dr. Artusio and his staff are all courteous, professional and top notch. Him and his nurse (I think her name was Amy) communicated what was going on during the entire procedure which I really like. I heard her call him Dr. A. She should call him Dr. A+. They all get an A+ from me and I would highly recommend them to friends and family.

Dr. Artusio definitely knows about diagnosing and repairing inguinal Hernias; he has performed thousands. His personality is that of a seasoned surgeon without the inflated ego. He has genuine interest in the patient and performing a first rate repair. The office staff was accommodating, friendly, and well organized. Glad Frederick, MD has these doctors for the community. The TJ surgery center is a great alternative location to perform surgeries and has a very skilled staff. The entire process from initial consultation to final follow up was flawless.

Dr. Mark Artusio corrected my hernia. Prior to the operation I was in excruciating pain. He and his staff were fantastic. Great "bedside mannor," communicative, knowledgeable. Dr. Artusio explained all options and how the procedure would be performed. The operation was done in about one hour at a medical facility near his office. Home to recover right away. Follow up visits were great. If you need a hernia operation I would highly recommend Dr. Mark Artusio. Don't wait, if not treated hernia's can be dangerous. Stay healthy.

Dr. Artusio has removed two suspicious lesions on my forearm. Both in office procedures. Both painless; both virtually scar free. Many years ago I think he was the surgeon that removed by appendix at FMH. I highly recommend him. His staff is exceptional.

Dr. Artusio provided a complete hernia diagnosis and surgery for my enlarged hernia (size of an apple). He provided initial guidance on the procedure, provided oversight of the operation, performed the surgery and also provided post operation care including what could be and not be performed during recovery. He was a referral from my father in law. He met all expectations and is considered the best doctor anyone could expect from a patient with a major hernia. David Woodard

I'd been bothered by hemorrhoids for many years. When my primary care Doctor suggested Dr. Artusio, I quickly made an appointment. On first meeting I found Dr. Artusio very easy to talk to. His examination was brief, but quite thorough. He took the time to explain in detail what needed to be done and what the recovery period would be like (quite lengthy and somewhat painful. He provided written post op instructions. The surgery went very well and he was spot on about the recovery, all in all it took about 8 weeks. I saw Dr. Artusio several times for follow up and we developed a good rapport. I hope I never need his services again, but should the need arise, I won't hesitate to call on him. Dr. Artusio is a fine surgeon and an even finer person.

Dr Artusio is one of the best surgeons I've had. He is a kind, caring doctor, and takes great pride in his work. He went above and beyond to help me with my husband's post op care from another doctor. He called me the day after surgery to check on me. Such a great doctor...highly recommend him!!

Dr. Artusio and his entire staff at the Foris Group and the Thomas Johnson Surgery Center (TJSC) are outstanding professionals. I sought help from Dr. Artusio for a chronic colorectal issue which caused me intermittent and considerable discomfort over a period of many months. I went in for my initial visit fully anticipating that it was only a matter of time before I had to undergo some form of invasive surgery. Dr. Artusio, to my great surprise and relief, recommended a much less invasive procedure that he could perform at the TJSC and with a high likelihood of success. He fully explained what was causing my problem and how the procedure would resolve it. After the procedure, I experienced only mild discomfort for a couple of days and afterwards have been completely pain free with virtually no complications. I would highly recommend Dr. Artusio for his expert knowledge, bedside manner, and surgical skills – a real pro!

I was having problems with a 34 year old C-Section scar and Dr. Artusio was recommenced by my PCP. He was attentive and provided possible causes for my issues. A first small surgery did not provide an answer. A second larger surgery was recommended and Dr. Artusio found 2 stitches from the C-section! I recovered completely. Dr. Artusio did a great job and saw me regularly through the healing process. All of the office staff were wonderful. Dr. Artusio and his medical assistants were amazing. They were compassionate and helpful. I never had a long wait and was always given the time I needed. I highly recommend Dr. Artusio and his office.

Dr. Artusio met with me quickly after my urgent surgical need was identified. He advocated with the surgical facility for a surgical slot the day after next. My outpatient surgical procedure was performed in a facility staffed by clear and caring staff. During my recovery, Dr. Artusio and his office provided to me excellent care. The entire process from problem to recovery was managed with great care by Dr. Artusio and his office.
