Dr Persino is my favorite doctor! He is always so happy and nice and a great listener! I have been going to Dr. Persino for over 20 years. He delivered both of my children and most recently performed my robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy. Everything went exactly as planned, and the recovery has been amazing. He is very experienced, but more importantly a doctor that I completely trust. Thank you, Dr. Persino and your staff for everything!

Dr. Persino is the kindest most compassionate doctor I have ever had. I have been with him for about 20 years now and he has taken such good care of me. I have had 2 surgeries with him and he has always been wonderful about answering any questions or easing my fears. Dr. Persino is truly a wonderful doctor and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Persino is an amazing doctor. Kind, compassionate and very personable. He takes his time with patients and answers any and all questions they may have. He even called me after hours with my post-surgery pathology results. I wish I had transferred to his practice sooner as I was having issues for years. I had a robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy five days ago and feel awesome. The procedure and recovery was exactly as he described. I am very glad Dr. Persino has kept up with the newest

I've been going to Dr. Persino for 10 years now and I would highly recommend his practice. He delivered two of my children and just recently, I had to have a robotic hysterectomy. The surgery went great and without any complications. In no time, I was feeling back to normal! Everything progressed as he described. He has a wonderful bedside manner and really makes you feel at ease. Dr. Persino always has a smile on his face and answers all your questions - never makes you feel rushed. A++!

Dr Persino is the Best. I came from another Dr who I was with for 10 years and Dr Persino maybe feel more comfortable about myself. I found I needed a hysterectomy and my other Dr said that it could not be laparoscopic. I went and saw Dr Persino and he said yes it could and this is my first major surgery and I was not nervous and I ended up having the robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy. He made me and my family so at ease in the hospital and answered all of our more unanswered questions. He is ju

Dr. Persino is the best!!! I had a robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy. This was the first major surgery I have ever had, and I can't even start to tell you how nervous I was! Dr Persino put me completely at ease. He explained the procedure throughly and answered any questions I had. He is not only down to earth and funny, but also treats you as a person, not just another patient. I completely trusted him going into surgery and knew everything would go well!!

I had been having a lot of troubles in the past 7 months concerning my symptoms and condition. When all the preliminary testing was done and it came down to actually deciding what to do for my condition Dr. Persino explained all my options to me in detail. He gave me my choices and all the background I needed to understand the long term effect each of the options would mean to me. He was extremely compassionate with all my concerns and helped with my decision. I am very happy with him.

I had a laparoscopic robotic hysterectomy for pre-cervical cancer cells. I was freaked out. I never have had any health issues before. So needless to say I was in panic mode. Dr. Persino always took the time to chat with me, ease me, and help me through my rough moments. He was professional, caring and thorough. He treated me as a person, not just a patient. I always say he is my angel here on earth!

I have been a patient with Dr Persino for almost 15 years, and have never had a problem, he takes the time to listen and assist with any problem I have. Recently I had my annual exam and told Dr. Persino I had vertigo, I also told him that I have at least 3 or more episodes of vertigo a day and I am constantly ill. Dr Persino took the time to listen and prescribed a motion sickness pill. I feel great compared to six months ago. Thank you Dr Persino.

During my first prenatal appt. w/ Dr. Persino, I began to miscarry. He made me feel safe & at ease during a devastating time. When serious complications arose 20w into my next pregnancy, again, he was able to put me & my husband at ease in the midst of it all. He gives you all your options (& makes sure you understand them) & his recommendation, but is not condescending. He really seems to care deeply for his patients & it shows. I have never trusted another doctor more than I trust Dr. Persino.

Dr. Persino is a friendly, caring, down to earth Physician. He puts the needs of the patient and their concerns first. Although he is friendly in the office/hospital atmosphere, he is also professional with again the patient's needs coming first. He is well educated with many years of experience. I worked with Dr. Persino in Surgery for many years and I can say his surgical technique is awesome. Again with putting the patient's needs first.
