I had a partial colectomy at Mt. Sinai in October 2020. Dr Sylla and her surgical team were top drawer in every respect. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

Dr. Sylla is an outstanding clinician. She evaluates each patient as a unique individual. Because of her skill and intelligence, I was able to care for my husband three months after my surgery when he had sudden quadruple bypass surgery. Dr. Sylla is a blessing to her patients.

I had hemorroidectomy surgery just two weeks ago. I put the surgery off for years because EVERY SINGLE DOCTOR I EVER VISITED told me it was going to be an excruciating recovery. Now that I've done the surgery with Dr Sylla, I can honestly say the pain wasn't nearly as bad as I was warned it would be. I didn't need strong painkillers post surgery - only Motrin and the great news is I have NO MORE disgusting uncomfortable bleeding dhemorrhoids. YUK! I cannot believe it took me this long to do the surgery. I suffered with chronic hemorrhoids for far too many years because I was afraid of the surgery. I loved Dr Sylla. Her skill, warmth and chipper bedside manner are reassuring and uncommon! An esteemed DR that I admire tremendously recommended Dr.. Sylla to me and I'm grateful she did. This surgery improved my life so much! Within 8 days I was walking and managing most daily tasks without much discomfort. It's 2 weeks and I'm exponentially better and so relieved it's "behind" me!

I had an outstanding experience with Dr. Sylla. A true professional. A “doctors” doctor. She was recommended by another physician at Mt. Sinai who said I would recommend her to anyone in my family. I echo that recommendation! I’m only sorry I didn’t find her sooner so that two other members of my family could have had the benefit of her as their surgeon.

Dr Sylla made me *whole again*. I don’t have pain every day anymore and the day she operated on me at Mt Sinai, I felt well taken care of.. (her team was kind- I was nervous but they helped me through it.. anesthesiologist was even good!). If you’re looking for this type of doctor, you just struck gold, she’s the bomb.

Dr. Sylla saved me. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis by another doctor & it was all downhill from there. I had 4 failed surgeries & spent 31 days in the hospital. Another doctor referred me to Dr. Sylla & told me if anyone could help me, it was her. He was right. Dr. Sylla is beyond knowledgeable about her practice. She performed two surgeries on me & both went perfectly. That was a year & a half ago. I trust Dr. Sylla with my life & every member of my family's.

Dr. Sylla is the rudest, most inhuman, and heartless practitioner I've ever encountered, not only I do not recommend anyone to step in her office, I don't think she should be practicing medicine. Furthermore, I was misdiagnosed, mistreated, and disrespected during the whole procedure.

After a failed hemorrhoidectomy I came back to discuss what other options were available. My issue is worse than before such painful surgery and Dr. Sylla could not care less. She didn't even give me a chance to take my pants off bursting into the room asking yeah, what do you want? As if I was bothering her. Then she says there's nothing more that can be done, I tell her I read that laser therapy is an option and all she said was I dont do lasers. Yes but it is an option you shouldve given.

With enormous gratitude, that I highly recommend Dr. Patricia Sylla, as a colon and rectal surgeon. She is quite frankly one of the finest doctors, I have ever met. Dr. Sylla is a true medical professional in the full sense of the word. I had a very complicated condition. Dr. Sylla met with me and my wife, explained my condition in a warm and professional manner and presented her recommendation. As a result of Dr Sylla's surgery and post operative care, I am living a very full and happy life.

Dr. Sylla performed a complex surgery on me 3 weeks ago that very few surgeons in the world would be able to do. She is a very skilled and highly trained surgeon. She is also a very nice person who is kind and compassionate. Dr. Sylla and her staff made me feel at ease. Dr. Sylla is a thought leader in her field and is an excellent surgeon. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and fast recovery. I feel very fortunate that Dr. Sylla was my surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Sylla.

A great experience from my first call to make an appointment with her assistant Natalie, who was very helpful, to the staff at the practice office when I got there for my appointment; very professional and pleasant. Dr Sylla is very personable and knowledgeable. She listens well and explains also very well. She has confidence and poise and a good sense of humor. I also clearly perceived that she cares about her patients.
