I had a routine colonoscopy with Dr. Sapienza as I have in the past. He is an excellent doctor who explains everything to you and has an excellent manner. There would be no need for me to go to anyone else in the future. The staff at the facility were all excellent as well.

I have been seeing Dr.Sapienza for the last 10 years. He’s an excellent physician who is caring and attentive to patient needs. He has an honest and conservative approach and isn’t quick to push procedures or meds. The office staff is great, Ramona was a superstar with getting my endoscopy scheduled. You have to book a regular office appointment in advance, but otherwise great environment. 10/10 !

Dr. Sapienza's level of professionalism is by far one of the best I have experienced. From the moment I arrived at the Center, he and his staff explained everything I needed to know clearly. His kind words calmed my nerves, and helped me prepare for my procedure, which went very well. I highly recommended Dr. Sapienza and his awesome staff.
