Didn't spend much time with a nurse or an assistant. Dr. Peluso interacted with me during the visit. She was attentive, caring, and competent.

Very good doctor. Took the time to explain to me and gave me some numbers to call about my hernia, etc. The doctor was very understanding when I didn't want her assistant in the room with us and respected my privacy.

Provider was very competent. I realize colonoscopies are important but perhaps the system should be less hectoring about them.

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Peluso. She explained things in very understandable terms. Great bedside manner. I liked her immediately.
