I just had surgery by Dr.Piacentino and I will recommend him to any of my family and friends. This man goes above and beyond to make sure that his patients are very well taken care of.

He is an excellent surgeon, and I have had many of them cut in to me. If you have to wait in the clinic because he isn't there yet, was delayed at the hospital, just remember that when you are there he will be taking just as good care of you! He is excellent in every aspect of patient care, and if my own family needed surgery, I would get them to Dr. Valentino Piacentino III without hesitation.

I saw Dr. Piacentino (Dr. Val) for chest pain after my cardiologist said my heart was ok. He did a few test and ended up finding a pre-cancerous spot on my esophagus. Dr. Val did surgery to fix my chest hernia and reflux. No more reflux and no more pills! I am very happy with his initial consult and explanations. He did have a change in his clinic staff and this caused some scheduling issues but he gave me his cell phone to make sure things got done and we stayed in touch. Highly recommend him!!

Sister-in-law is over a month out and has still not been seen post-op. Her appointment has been rescheduled three time. No contact has been made by the physician or his nurse to follow-up with her.

Excellent initial meeting with Dr Piacentino. He was approachable, careful to give full explanation, and answer all questions. I feel very confident about my upcoming surgery.

He gave me his personal phone number and actually answered it. He took the time to consult with my previous doctor on a question I had and then got back to me on it the same night. I was impressed. At my first consultation he showed me the CT scan and explained it to me, how it worked and what it showed.
