I had my first appointment with Dr Panella today after coming highly recommended from my father in law. I was unimpressed, to say the least, with the experience. I had to answer the same question 5 times and correct him on the answer just as often. I left feeling just as uneasy as I felt when I got there. Hopefully this was just an off day. He also took a phone call in the middle of my appointment which was unprofessional and rude.

Obtained an appt fairly quickly. Had a 9am appt traveled all the way from Bronx. N.Y. Arrived at 8am by 10:30am I still had yet to be triaged. Everyone who came before and after me had come and gone. I'm talking a good twenty ppl. By this time the office is empty. White guy comes in with no appt wanting to see this same doctor and he gets immediately sent to the back as if I was invisible and did not matter. Highly upset I questioned the desk person for about the fifth time. I was told I had to

Ridgefield, NJ |
In hindsight (pun intended) worrying about my 1st colonoscopy was really unnecessary. Dr. Panella and staff were absolutely excellent from start to finish. They answered all my questions at the office visit and over the phone. Drinking the prep solutions the day before and morning of isn't exactly a walk in the park, however you know it must be done to get the most accurate scan possible. The procedure itself was a breeze, it was quick, woke up feeling great, not even realizing it was done.
Ridgefield, NJ |
Dr. Panella & his staff are both very professional and very easy to speak with. The prep before was exactly as explained, and the procedure went extremely well. No discomfort at all. I highly recommend Dr. Panella and his staff. Thank you.
