This is my secound colonoscopy with this doctor. My first one was 5 years ago. It was very painful and I said so during the procedure even though I was supposed to be out of it My latetst procedure today I told bothe the doctor and the nurse that I experienced pain the first time and that I did not want that for this time. They told me not to worry they were using a different seditve and a smaller probe. Well this precedure was way worse, so painful I will never go back angain.

Dr. DiLauro is the kindest, most professional, honest doctor. He listens and genuinely cares. He takes the time to thoroughly explain your conditions, options, what you can do for yourself, and his recommendations for professional treatments. He helps you empower yourself to take responsibility. I would highly recommend him to anyone!! If all doctors were as diligent about telling you how you can be proactive in your own health care we would greatly reduce the need for health care overall.

I like doctors who listen and shows some empathy for the patient, that is Dr. Dilauro. A colonoscopy is no walk in the park, but he cares about what he is doing, you can't ask for more.

Dr. Dilauro has wonderful bedside manner, is caring, professional knowledgeable. The staff at the endoscopy clinic were truly wonderful. The nurses were very sweet, caring and assuring. My appointment could not have gone better. In and out in 2 hours and everything went as promised. I will see you guys again in 5 years (and I hope by then I won't remember the disgusting liquid prep). Can't you guys come up with a pill and then we just drink some water? Seriously, it is hideous.

Who can say they had an amazing experience while having an endoscopy and a colonoscopy on the *same* day?? Me, that's who. Dr. Dilauro and his staff are truly remarkable professionals who seem to really care, and it shows from the initial consultation to the time you wake up. They listened to what went wrong last time at a different doctor's office, and did everything the right way. In 10 years when I have to go back for another colonoscopy, I will choose only Dr. Dilauro's office.
