Patient Comments (2)
in Secaucus, NJ |
I was sick for about 4 weeks when my GP advised that I should see a GI specialist. I contacted Dr. Sciarra's office in Secaucus and was told that I would have to wait 3-4 weeks for an appointment there, but as I was so ill, they gave me an immediate appointment in the Edgewater office. Wanda, who made the schedule was wonderful! I waited for about 15 minutes when the doctor came in. Within 10 minutes, I had the first appointment for an endoscopy the next morning. I was healed!

Terrible experience! I went to him as an emergency patient in need of an endoscopy and I was scheduled 4 weeks out! My condition worsened and I ended up being hospitalized. Dr Sciarra was notified, he was supposed to do the endoscopy the following day of me being admitted, he was a no show then later on called saying he was too busy the entire week and couldn't perform the endoscopy on me at all. My PCP had to find me another GI doctor to do it. Shows how much Dr Sciarra cares about his patients
