As the way Dr. C. explained to me in a professional manner and keeping his eyes focused on me, built confidence in me that he can fix me. I wanted to get a second opinion but I feel positive about his decisions.

Dr. Celebrezze and his staff are excellent, deeply caring providers. I make it a point to tell them that when I have an appointment. It is rare to find an office so consistently attentive to the patient's needs at every stage of treatment. I am grateful to have found Dr. Celebrezze and his staff.

Dr. Celebrezze is best, most competent and caring physician I have ever seen in my experience. He re-instilled the confidence I needed to go through the operation I needed after the disappointing procedure I had Initially with the previous Doctor.
