Dr. Artusio's office staff was able to schedule my first appointment within a few days of my initial call. Dr.Artusio listened intently to my concerns and was able to offer a surgical solution to correct the problem, but only after careful examinations and thorough testing. He took time to explain every step of the surgical procedure and asked if I had any questions or concerns. Dr. Artusio reassured me of my progress at each follow-up appointment. On several occasions, Dr. Artusio called to check on my progress and make sure the medications prescribed were making me comfortable. I would recommend Dr.Artusio to those looking for a professional, skilled surgeon with kindness and compassion.
Not only was the operation a complete success with little soreness but his follow-up was remarkable. He called on Saturday, the day after surgery to ask how I felt. When I felt that I was retaining urine, he called my PCP and then called back the next day and recommended a urologist and his contact number. I could not have had a better overall experience with a surgical experience.
I saw Dr. Artusio for my Gallbladder removal following the birth of my first child. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in understanding the surgery. The surgery took place at Thomas Johnson Surgical Center. I cannot say enough good things about the staff at this facility. They were smart, comforting and quick. This was my first surgery and they made it much easier to cope, especially considering the emotional stress of leaving a nursing baby at home. I would recommend both the surgeon and facility to anyone in the area.
Straight forward. Felt very well informed. Great bed-side manner.
Very professional and caring about the patients condition and getting to a resolution. Follow-up is excellent throughout treatment(s). All medication/surgical actions taken were personal and based on my needs. I was treated with respect and quality, not just another patient for quantity.
Highly recommended for professional manner and helpful staff. Below average waiting time in the July-Aug 2016 timeframe. Surgery was painless and healed quickly. I wouldn't hesitate to use Dr. Artusio again should the need arise.
I'm very glad to have chosen Dr. Artusio for my surgery. He is knowledgeable and his experience is evident.. The care that he and his office took was first class in every regard. The planning and care that have been put into their processes was clearly visible. Surgery was smooth and uneventful from my perspective. Follow-up care was great.
I had a minor outpatient surgery and it went very well. Dr. Artusio barely had to cut, and favored the "body heals itself" point of view, rather than all intervention. The nurse Amy was wonderful - so caring and gentle and really comforting for the parts that were painful. Great "bedside manner". The office staff was always polite and courteous and I never had to wait long. All doctors' offices should be this good.
Dr. Artusio performed two surgeries, placement of a power port for chemotherapy and removal of that port eight months later. The results of both surgeries were excellent with absolutely no issues. Healing time was short and virtually no pain was experienced. I would highly recommend Dr. Artusio is an excellent surgeon and would certainly use him again if the need arose.
Dr. Artusio is one of the most pleasant doctors I've ever met. He came in with a smile, was greatly knowledgeable and thoroughly explained everything about my surgery with me. His staff is awesome and made me feel relaxed the entire time. I cannot recommend him and his office enough!
If I need a surgeon, Dr.Artusio would be my first choice. He was my surgeon when I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1998. My treatment from beginning to end was excellent. I recently was diagnosed with a hernia and just by chance found Dr.Artusio was still in practice. I had thought he left his practice some years back. It was a relief to know that I could see him. At first he felt in might not be necessary as the hernia was small and more a aggravation than pain. I called back a week or so later to say that in fact pain was now present daily. He said then we need to take care of this for you. I had a very small window where I could have the surgery and still meet some obligations made months before. He and his staff found a date and time that was perfect for some heal time yet allowed me to complete my obligations. I never thought we could make this happen.
Dr. Artusio explained all aspects of my condition in detail and made sure I understood. If I was going to have any surgery that Dr Artusio was capable of performing, he would be my first choice!
I highly recommend this health care professional. He performed a hernia operation on me. He is what I consider a seasoned professional from the "old school" - meaning he has exceptional bedside manner, explains the risks and every step of the process. I had zero complications and excellent follow up. He has my top ratings.
Dr. Artusio has been my surgeon since 2000, he has given me the best care possible. His office staff and nurses are not only experts in their field they are caring and kind. I have had my surgery at the surgercial center on Thomas Johnson Drive the care there was amazing!!! The entire staff, from entering the center, to the people taking care of me for my surgery helped me and my wife be very comfortable and relaxed. If surgery is needed Dr. Artusio is the only person I would recommend for everyone.!!!! The pre-op check in was GREAT!!!!!
I was beyond impressed with my experience at this doctorâs office. My first contact was with Dr. Artusio. He was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! I would highly recommend this medical group!
Dr. Artusio performed my gall bladder surgery. He was extremely thorough in his assessment of my condition leading up to the surgery. When it was determined that surgery was needed his office staff and that of the surgical center were also excellent. I cannot say enough for the surgery experience itself. It was handled professionally and Dr. Artusio's work was excellent with no post-operative pain (only slight discomfort). The incisions themselves were almost un-noticible.
Wonderful surgeon..di haf questions after surgery..was quick to answer an take care of..office seen me same day as my concerns..made same day testing to make sure all was well
Dr. Artusio was professional, creative, and thorough. I felt very comfortable seeing him and would do so again, should the need arise.
Dr. Artusio expertly repaired an inguinal hernia using a mesh. I have had zero complications. After leaving the surgical center my post- surgical pain was minimal. I did not need to fill a prescription for pain medication. Ibuprofen was all I needed for a couple of days. Dr. Artusio has performed literally thousands of this operation during his surgical practice. . He has a good bedside manner and had me in twice for brief follow up checks so he can be sure all is well. I have had no pulling or tugging sensations that appear in web articles. Regarding my hernia, it is (as they say) like it never happened. I unreservedly recommend Dr. Mark Artusio.
I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Artusio. He was polite and took time to educate me about my condition. He was very conscientious of the process from start to finish and my scar is so small, I can barely see it, even though he took a mass out that was bigger than a golf ball. His surgical staff was very pleasant and I was very comfortable throughout my quick visit. If I ever need to return for a condition he can treat, he will be the surgeon I see without question.
Used Dr Artusio for installing and removing a port when being treated for for cancer. He was able to install the port between chemo sessions so no time was lost in treatment. His work was excellent. He's very personable. Would use again and would refer to anyone.
I was very impressed with Dr. Artusio - very kind, he listens to you and explains his findings in easy-to-understand terms.
Dr. Artusio is a very caring and detailed oriented surgeon. He guided me through what to expect before and after the surgery. He and his staff gave me specific instructions on what I could and could not do during the recovery period. This was very helpful to me.
Dr. Artusio is a wonderful doctor who took his time at each appointment to explain the procedure to me and answer all my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Artusio.
Great - didn't need surgery afterall and they did NOT try to talk me in to anything. Gave me good recommendation for Internal Medicine doctor.
Dr. Atrusio and his staff were amazing. Very nice and attentive. Removing very well after surgery
I wholeheartedly recommend this office. I am 49 and went to Dr. Artusio about two years ago, He accurately diagnosed my umbilical hernia and repaired it successfully. I had my doubts that I would ever be able to work out full speed again, but he promised me that I would if I adhered to his recovery plan. I did, and now I cannot tell that I ever had the hernia, whether I am running or working my abdomen, or lifting heavy things. The appearance of my scar did take a long time to heal, which he said it would. I would go back here for sure.
Second time the good doctor has put a port in my chest for chemotherapy. Excellent surgeon and excellent staff as well as the surgery center. Made me feel very comfortable under the circumstances. Thank you all and look forward to coming back to have the port removed.
Dr. Artusio is an excellent surgeon and very well-mannered. The office staff was courteous and customer-service oriented. I would highly recommend him for your surgical needs.
I had a very large external hemoroidhemoroid. Dr Artusio removed it on my first visit. Essentially, no pain and a most pleasent experience considering. Thanks LOADS Dr. Artusio for your help. Hope to NOT have to see you very soon. Your staff were exceptional and very helpful. Thanks again.
Professional, friendly, kind staff. Explained everything. Post surgical instructions were very clear and pain management was excellent.
Very good service, even had the Dr. called to check on me on now I was feeling, that shows a lot of interest in your patients. plus his work is a 5 star. This was my 3rd. surgery from him, great job on each one.
I will definitely tell my family and friends about Dr. Artusio. My husband and I were very impressed with him. He explained everything to us in detail using simple terms we could easily understand. He and his staff were friendly and very professional.
Dr Artusio is a wonderful surgeon with excellent bedside manner. He personally called me 2 days after my surgery to make sure everything was ok. I would highly recommend his practice without any reservations to anyone.
Dr. Artusio is a really good surgeon! Excellent job on my hernia repair. Great communication skills with patient. Highly recommend !
Dr .Artusio removed some melanoma from my breast area at Frederick Memorial Hospital on Oct. 2, 2015. The staff and Dr. Artusio, made the procedure most comfortable. They showed outstanding care and concern for me since this was my first operation since I was a child. I have had little or no pain since and the great news is they removed the melanoma on the first try and I'm now cancer free. I wll certainly continue to use Dr. Artusio should the melanoma come back some place else. Thank you once again for your outstanding work!
WOW is all I can say. In a "Service Industry" that earns revenue per visit, this office is a breathe of fresh air. The staff is so friendly and attentive as is Dr. Artusio. This is a staff that appears to really enjoy their work and it shows. Dr. Artusio called the day after surgery just to check in, after his office had already done so. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Artusio and his staff.
Dr. Artusio did a hernia surgery on me, one of over 5,000 he's done for others per his statement. He and his team did a terrific job. I did have one minor post-op. Issue, and he was very proactive, urging me to come back to the office, and one comment he made caused me to take action, and 5 minutes later the problem had passed, so to speak. I never had the sense that he was anything other than fully engaged in my healthcare and surgery, and that his vast experience meant he could cope with any issue that arose. No hesitation, I would recommend him to a loved one.
Surgery went fine. Very good explanation as to what to expect and post-surgery do's and don'ts.
I have had a several surgery's over the years by some of the most highly recommended and qualified surgeons in the area in which I resided. This testimony I'm about to give is unsolicited and unbiased. The Foris Surgical Group stands above all others. The staff at the Foris Surgical Center were professional, kind, thoughtful and made the experience as comfortable and as pleasant considering the apprehension one has prior to a surgical procedure. Even though this testimony applies to the entire staff I am compelled to give extra kudos to Anna Marie. She, along with several others whose names escape me attended to me while recovering from the procedure while the anesthesia was wearing off. She never left my side and spoke to me with gentleness and kindness. The person who was with me said at one point I made a very off color remark that got everyone laughing, Anna Marie most of all. I was not rushed and only allowed to leave when I felt that it was OK. Dr. Artusio is by far the most caring physician I've ever had the pleasure to know. During the pre-surgical visits he explained in great detail, on a level that I could understand, what was going on, why surgery was the best option and the surgical technique he would use vs the technique that was used years ago. Surgery is all about finding a better technique to improve patient outcome. He drew pictures and may have even used a crayon (only kidding) of the pre-surgical area and explained in great detail what he was going to do. Most importantly to me was that he set an expectation. He told me exactly what to expect, what the finished product would feel like and said that the recovery would be the most excruciatingly painful experience I have ever had. He was 100% correct. I don't recall seeing him immediately after the surgery but my responsible adult partner said that he had stopped by to see me. Most importantly he called me two times within the first week to ask how I was doing. Based on my responses he provided guidance and instructions on how to deal with the pain. Simply stated he truly cared about how I was doing. I can't ever remember receiving a call from a Dr.. Not once and certainly not twice in the same week. I just saw him today for my second post op visit and he started again with the explanations and questions. He used a word that I didn't know (prolapse) and explained what it meant in this scenario. His office staff is amazing too. They actually engage their patients. How often does that happen. In closing, I would say that if you live within a hundred miles of his office and you're told by your family practitioner to see a surgeon then Dr. Artusio is your go to Dr. No Ifs ands or butts! Did I mention he has a fantastic sense of humor too!
This doctor knows his stuff and delivers great care. His preoperative explanations were clear as a bell, as he uses diagrams to explain things. The surgery went off without a hitch, and my scars are barely visible. He personally called me the day after the operation to check on me. I could not have asked for better care. He clearly wants the best for his patients.
Fast and did a good job
Friendly, accurate, took time to listen and answer my questions.
Dr. Artusio and his staff were wonderful during my recent gallbladder surgery and recovery. He took the time to explain everything in advance. After surgery, he walked through pictures and explained exactly what was done. My experience at the Surgical Center was beyond expectations. It was warm, welcoming and made me feel like I was in good hands the entire time. Much nicer than a hospital atmosphere. I highly recommend this office.
Great experience - awesome doctor staff
Actually took the time to explain my procedure in detail to the point of drawing it out on paper, put all my concerns to rest. Surgery went great. Highly recommend this surgeon.
I had a very good experience. I saw Dr. Artusio about my gallbladder problem, he recommended to removed it. I was able to have the surgery done promptly after my consultation, by laparoscopic procedure, and it was a very good result. I am glad I chose Dr. Artusio and highly recommend him.
Dr. Artusio and his staff provide the best medical care i have ever received. The atmosphere of the office is calm and relaxing. I came to the office in excrutiating pain. I was scheduled immediately. My issue required surgery. Dr. Artusio came into the hospital room two different times to assure me that everything would be okay before surgery. Recovery was as expected and just as he said it would be. I even received a phone call on a sunday to be checked on. I was able to call the office with any questions and they were handled by the very knowledgeable medical assistant. I returned for a minor unrelated issue and was scheduled with ease once more. This office really goes above and beyond to accompdate the patient. The front desk must be recognized as well for their friendly greetings and knowledge when it came to all of the insurance related questions. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Dr. Artusio and foris surgical group! I truly feel relief knowing that should a problem arise in the future, i will know who to contact.
Dr. Artusio was excellent in diagnosing, surgical explanation, surgery, follow up care and friendly demeanor. I would highly recommend him. He made me feel at ease and took his time with explanations and instructions. His staff are very friendly and helpful.
A program. Friendly, timely, explained everything. Very competent surgeon and he always made me feel comfortable. I will use him for any future surgeries.
Dr. Artusio made me feel very comfortable with having surgery. I had a wonderful experience. His staff was very nice. my scars are not very noticeable, and overall I was extremely pleased. My pre op symptoms are all gone.
I went to Dr. Artusio for minor surgery. Still it was my first surgery, and I was a bit scared. Turns out I couldn't have been in better hands. Dr. Artusio is not only skilled as a surgeon, he listens to you, patiently responds to any questions, and makes you feel like you matter as a person. He's that rare "old-fashioned" doctor. 10 STARS!
Dr. Artusio took his time with each of my three appointments. He was kind, good-humored, thorough in his questions and examinations, determined to help me. The in-office procedure he performed, which might have been very embarrassing, was completed smoothly and efficiently and with me at my ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He is a thorough professional but manages to remain kind and warm.
Professional, friendly, knowledgeable. Surgery was quick and virtually painless. Instructions were crystal clear.
One of the best doctors I have ever seen.
I was impressed with the professionalism, courteousness and friendliness of Dr Artusio and his staff. Most times, if I arrived early, I was seen early. If I ever need a surgeon in the future, this is where I'll call!
Thumbs up for Dr. Artusio. He explained the process very well and most importantly listened and responded professionally to my concerns. The surgery went well and although recovery varies per individual, my recovery is still in progress. It has been 6 weeks and I personally feel I have a few weeks to go to get to 100%. I would definitely recommend Dr. Artusio for consultation.
WE are very impressed with Dr Artusio. He has great bedside manner! He even called at 5:30 on Friday evening to f/u on condition. I would definitely recommend and will go back to him if I need a surgeon.
Dr. Mark Artusio was referred to me by my friend who was one of Dr. Artusio's former patients. My ventral hernia with mesh repair was flawlessly completed. The Foris Surgical Group and Frederick Memorial Hospital Same-Day-Surgery are patient-driven, quality-oriented organizations. I am totally satisfied and thank Dr. Artusio and his staff for the superb care!
I was referred to Foris Surgical Group by my insurance provider and I must say they did not disappoint. The staff was very friendly and always courteous to me and the office was always clean and welcoming. Dr. Artusio is one in a million, I am so happy with my choice to visit his office, I have absolutely no regrets. I would definitely recommend him to others, they practice the true meaning of customer satisfaction.
Following a health crisis, i was referred for gall bladder surgery. Dr. Artusio's calm and encouraging manner was REALLY appreciated. Explanations were clear and risks explained. Surgery and recovery were uneventful. My surgery was much less stressful because of my confidence in him.
I saw Dr Artusio at an office visit. He was patient, listened to my concerns, did a thorough exam and answered all of my questions. As part of his explanation he even did drawings .He also provided pamphlets for further reading. Years before he had performed surgery on me and I was most satisfied. I highly recommend Dr Artusio !
Dr. Artusio and Foris Surgical group took great care of me for my gallbladder removal due to gallstones. Excellent experience, I highly recommend.
Dr. Artusio personally followed up on me after my surgery and directly called me back after I called in with a concern. Most doctors would have their staff respond back to the patient for those types of questions. My surgery was successful and I've healed way ahead of schedule.
My experience with Dr. Artusio and his staff was excellent.
Very thorough, prompt and effective. Surgery was flawless and suturing was excellent - little or no scar.
Was referred to Foris Surgical by my GP. This was a follow up incident from an incident a couple years ago. I was a bit surprised that I had to return for a "re-surgical" procedure on removing a Lypoma. Not saying that Dr Artusio was responsible for the re-growth (he was the practitioner/surgeon on the first removal)... but at least he was very attentive and professional, as were his staff.
He was kind and patient and answered all of my questions thoroughly. If there is one thing that stands out, it is the tremendous concern has has for his patients. He even called to check on me the day after my surgery. I could not have asked for a better experience and would return to him in a heartbeat.
Dr Mark Artusio's straight forward, no nonsense and caring approach made my facing my melanoma cancer removal reassuring. He came recommended and I was never disappointed from the consultation to the surgery and follow-up. Dr. Artusio is a true professional with tons of experience in removing skin cancer. I would recommend him highly.
Dr Artusio was very nice. He takes his time and goes over everything about the surgery and explains step by step what he did during the surgery with photos. He even called me himself to find out how I was doing. I would definitely go to him again, I would also refer people to him.
I couldn't ask for a better surgeon. He met all my needs and then some. Highest rating.
Dr. Artusio is a kind, gentle man, with a very reassuring bedside manner. When I went to the hospital, the nurses told me I was lucky to have the best surgeon there. I came through beautifully and my scars were almost invisible. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Best surgical experience ever. He is a great surgeon, not to be confused by doctors you have to judge by their smile. His ability goes WAY beyond his personality.
Very Informative and Excellent technical surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Mark Artusio is by far the GREATEST surgeon ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
