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...more
