Dr, Panella is wonderful. Will definitely recommend him to others. He made me feel very confident in the procedure and his crew at the colonoscopy center were very calming. They explained the procedure step by step, made me feel very comfortable, and everything went well.

I highly recommend Dr. Panella to anyone looking for a gastroenterologist. He was referred to me by my general doctor and I couldn’t be happier. He’s very articulate and answers all questions in a clear manner. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly as well.

I actually already have confidently recommended Dr. Panella to those seeking a professional, caring, knowledgeable & courteous G.I. doctor. Not only is the good Doctor a pleasure to work with, his competent & friendly staff also make the G.I. experience far better than one might otherwise expect. I am not going to lie, and tell you a Colonoscopy was fun...or...a "joy"... Ha. No!... but... the experience & the "coaching" by the staff was second to none. 5 Stars on Everything! And well-deserved!

I have made countless appointments throughout my life with different GI doctors and never felt comfortable with any of them. I felt like they didn't listen to my issues and prescribed me the wrong things every time. I almost gave up hope, until I found Dr. Panella. He listened, was willing to working with me, and also took more of the food diet route than just prescribing me medications to use. I just came home from my procedures today and it could not have gone any better! They made it so easy!

First of all, I & my husband think a great deal of Dr. Panella. He is always smiling, gracious, explains everything before & after any procedures. His staff is just as friendly & nice. Today I had an Endoscopy done. Had Dr. Kaufman was my anesthesiologist, she explained everything that she was going to do, a very nice doctor. My nurses were first Carolyn, Jana, Inna. all explained everything, may we feel comfortable & in good hands. My experience today went very well.
