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!!
