I had been to the Mayo Clinic- everywhere looking for someone to listen to me, and care about the pain in my belly. I thank God for Dr. Petro everyday. She gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Petro.
in Madison, MS |
Dr. Petro is a very caring and compassionate physician. Our initial encounter was comfortable and I felt immediately at ease. She has great bedside manner. She listened intently and answered every question with caring concern. I was pleasantly surprised when she went the extra mile to follow-up with me and ensure that I was feeling better. I have recommended her to my family and friends and will continue to follow-up with her if and when needed.

My husband sees Dr. Petro. She's very caring and professional. She took the time and listened to all of his symptoms and concerns. All of his concerns were addressed. With the recommendations she gave his symptoms have improved tremendously. He was very satisfied.
Indianola, MS |
When I entered the facility everything was so nice and clean. I waited in the wait area for about 20 mins and was called to the back. The young lady that called me back was so friendly and I was taken to the exam room that was very neat and clean. The doctor entered in about 10 mins after I was in there she was very nice and listened to all of my concerns. I was very nervous about my visit. She was able to answer all of my questions and put me at ease. I will definitely recommend her to anyone
Hermanville, MS |
I went in to see Dr Petro who was recommended. I explained my stomach condition which she thought was obviously a joke. I cried and told her how I was unable to eat due to my food not going down. Her response was to eat smaller portions and exercise. I continued to get sicker. I saw another dr who sent me to Minnesota to the Mayo Clinic. From that appointment the ct scan showed I had a obstruction in small intestine which turned into being cancer that had spread into other organs.
