I Was very sick with pancreatitis and gallbladder stones. Not only did Dr.. Petraiuolo fit me into his surgery schedule due to my condition, he also cared about the human element of me needing to get that surgery in order to get better to attend my son's college graduation. I am forever indebted to him for his excellent surgical skills and caring about my home situation.. I appreciate his time to explain and even draw pictures of what is going on so that all was understood.

the office staff and the doctor was great. I went to the doctor as recommended by me regular doctor for a bilateral mastectomy. the procedure was needed so I went ahead and had it done. several time before the operation the Doctor did tell me this was not cosmetic which I understood however I didn't think that statement gave him license to pay absolutely pay no attention to the human form and totally mutilate my chest. if you care what its going to look afterward go elsewhere

D. Petraiuolo was recommended for the removal of a lump in my breast. The surgery was performed and after my 6 month mammogram follow up, THE MASS WAS STILL THERE! He never removed the mass, just healthy breast tissue. I had to go through all of fear and anguish again. Bedside manner was not the best either.

Medical staff in any doctor's office are hit or miss, that has nothing do to with the doctor. I appreciated Dr. Petraiuolo's direct approach. Day of the procedure, he communicated what would happen and talked with me through the whole time (which I appreciated). Doctors aren't here to deliver customer service, they're here to perform a specialty. So far, I'm satisfied with results.

Dr. Petraiuolo has performed 2 minor and 2 major surgeries on me during the last decade. I have a host of autoimmune issues, which complicates my treatment. However, he has proven to be an excellent surgeon, who is professional (with an excellent bedside manner); punctual in office and for surgeries; patient while thoroughly explaining your procedure and highly respected at the hospital. He's the best surgeon I have ever met.

Very impressed with the ability to get an appointment, thorough treatment and excellent follow up, even called on a Sunday to see how I was feeling. Highly recommend.

Great experience from consultation to surgery
in Willowick, OH |
We felt that Dr. Petraiuolo and his assistant were rude and inconsiderate of our questions or feelings. Very pushy, to the point that he took his wallet out of his pocket and shook it in her face saying if he was about that, he'd put her in the OR right away. We went in as my mom needs a biopsy on her breast. I have never felt so disrespected as I did that day. As her POA and daughter, I will NEVER let that man do surgery of any kind on her or recommend him.

Good doctor/patient relationship. Good knowledge we could understand.
