I felt confident about Dr Dronsky as soon as we met. I had 4 hernias in the inguinal area (2 left & 2 right) and one umbilical. Laparoscopic surgery with mesh. The surgery date was set up quickly. Surgery and recovery went just as Dr Dronsky said it would. I couldn't have asked for better.

Looking for a hernia Dr? Look no further! Dr.Dronsky and his team were very professional. He did my hernia surgery on 10/23/2019 I was able to start working after three weeks doing plumbing work. Recovery was very quick thanks to his talent and post op instructions. Also let’s not forget about the office staff, they’re very polite, fast and prompt. Im very fit and in good health and I was afraid to have surgery but I’m glad I did. If you have a hernia go visit Dr.Dronsky you’ll be glad you did.

I don’t do reviews. But this was my first “real” surgery. I was terrified and all that comes with it. Dr. Dronsky was very professional and definitely took the time to make feel more at rest. He was also the first recommended by my GP of more than 20 years.

Dr. Dronsky was a very knowledgeable and highly talented surgeon. He completed the procedure in a timely fashion and his team of assistants made sure that I was treated with the utmost attention in the recovery room. I had three hernias repaired during one procedure and he was able to completely alleviate my pain in those three regions due to his profound surgical skills. It has been a month since the surgery was done and I feel no pain at all. I will without a doubt recommend this Surgeon.

Dr. Dronsky was my surgeon for a recent appendectomy. Having gone to the hospital on a Saturday and having absolutely no choice in which surgeon would be removing my appendix, I couldn't have been luckier than to have Dr. Dronsky. He was thoughtful, truthful, and extremely caring from the first moment I met him in the hospital to the several follow-ups in the weeks after my surgery. The whole office staff feeds off the positive energy as well. Thank you all!

Dr. Dronsky did my gallbladder surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital two weeks ago. Upon meeting him prior to my surgery, he was quick and accurate in diagnosing my health issue, and wanted me in the ER as soon as possible. His bedside manner was gentle yet firm in making sure that I was well taken care of. He listened to my needs and concerns and assured me that all would be well, and he was genuine in making sure I was going to be ok. His staff was awesome as well. I highly recommend him! Kudos!

Friday, I went straight to the doctor with lower right abdominal pain. After being examined by my general practitioner he sent me to Lennox hill hospital. Friday evening I under went emergency surgery to remove my appendix. I am recovering well.. The scars are barely noticeable. I recovered fast and the care I received has been great. I highly recommend Dr. Dronsky. He also has a great sense of humor, an added plus.

What can I say about Dr Dronsky without it sounding beyond belief? He is the kind, warmest and most considerate Doctor I have ever dealt with - I had a hernia procedure done by him and prior, during and post he could not have been most attentive, kind or concerned. I even had occasion to call his service one Saturday night, post operation, and he himself returned the call within 10 minutes and even followed up with me again later that night. I feel I struck gold by being referred to him!

Dr. Dronsky fixed my double inguinal hernia October 11th of this year. I had my 1 month check up today. I couldn't be happier and more satisfied. He is extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant to be around. This was more important than I realized. It is a pleasure being in his care and I look forward to my 6 month check up. I would highly recommend him to anyone with any kind of hernia concerns. Wylie Weeks

Dr. Valery Dronsky is one of the most super surgeons that has performed surgery on me. From the initial visit, to the laparoscopic hernia surgery, to the visit in the recovery room, and to the followup visits in his office, Dr. Dronsky exhibited kindness, understanding, and quintessential knowledge of the procedure. Due to his expert surgical skills, I completely recovered within one to two weeks. Dr. Dronsky gets an A+ rating from me.
