5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Genova was totally understanding and addressed my concerns by setting me at ease and answered my questions. She took the time to explain all scenarios and procedures that may occur. I left having total confidence that she would be performing my upcoming surgery.

I highly recommend Dr.GENOVA🙂High class surgeon with great knowledge and experience. Extremely kind, tactful, communicative and supportive. The operation was performed in a nice atmosphere and without stress. I have had hernia surgery. Ireceived professional help. I don't think five stars is enough.

5 out of 5 stars

Comforting to have a MD who is informative, skilled and empathetic. Handled a personal examination with control and understanding.

5 out of 5 stars

Everyone was competent and kind. The most important thing, for me when dealing with a medical procedure, is communications. My medical team all showed up to introduce themselves (those I had not met) and to explain what was going to happen, how long it would take and that they would keep my partner in the loop. They seemed genuinely caring and spoke to -me-, rather than running through a script. I assume knowledgeable; the level of compassion and teamwork and respect for one another in a busy practice was amazing.

5 out of 5 stars

I was a little nervous but things went extremely well. Everybody preparing me for surgery were patient , kind and very helpful. I spoke to several people before the surgery who answered all my questions and set my mind at ease. . I can't say enough good things about their staff. I actually went to the hospital the very next day with a couple gifts for 2 nurses to show my appreciation .
