    Dr Trotta, informed Leon of the problem noted in Leon's lower abdomen. A date for surgery was set immediately. Dr Trotta gave gave us his instructions. After surgery, Dr Trotta shared his findings with me. We couldn't ask for more timely information. Leon's surgery was handled expertly.

    I would give Dr. Trotta 0 stars if I could. On July 2016, he performed surgery on my mother to remove her gallbladder. He incorrectly planned surgery, poorly performed it and another, took a vacation, discharged with a visibly opening incision and ignored obvious infection indications weeks later. Near fatal infection has had an 8 month impact with further reconstruction and rehabilitation not even started. Do not see this doctor!

    Dr. Trotta and staff were very friendly and professional. I have recommended him before and will continue to do so. Dr. Trotta was very responsive to phone calls and was able to answer all of my questions.
