Dr. Paonessa saw me hours after I called her office. Took care of my issues and her and her staff couldn't have been more patient and accommodating. Two thumbs up!

Not enough good things can be said about Dr. Paonessa and her staff. Her staff was more than accommodating and very courteous. Due to the sensitive nature of my symptoms, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised by this amazingly professional doctor, who is gifted with the ability to sooth, calm and educate, all while displaying genuine compassion and respect. She is a true gem who actually makes me want to schedule a colonoscopy.
in Barnegat, NJ |
I was extremely embarrassed and scared to go to this type of physician before I saw Dr. Paonessa for my condition after being misdiagnosed by two other doctors. She, as well as her staff was extremely compassionate, professional and caring and really helped me feel as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a really professional doc in this specialty that is highly skilled. Also, I am completely healed from my condition after surgery with her.
