I've have had several occasions where I've needed Dr Auriemma. He is an excellent surgeon but almost as important, he is a human being. When you are scared and in pain, you need a doctor who will reassure you, explain a procedure in depth and give you the confidence to believe that everything is going to be fine. I have recommended Dr. Auriemma to anyone who needs a surgeon.

I was very nervous and uncomfortable, but Dr. Auriemma (and his staff) made the experience as painless and easy as it possibly could be. I would recommend this Doctor to anyone in need.

I definitely recommend Dr. Auriemma as I've had him for numerous medical problems. If it wasn't for Dr. Auriemma I might not be here. I was literally starving to death with a condition called Abdominal Angina & my celiac artery 70% blocked. I had that repaired with a stent & I finally started gaining weight again. Also two years after that Dr. found out I had Gastroparesis. I would trust him with My life anytime... I trust him totally.
