I recommend Dr. Vernava as a good colorectal surgeon. He removed a Rectal cancer on me and performed an Ileostomy. He did a great job. After 5 months he reversed the Ileostomy. Both surgeries and the follow up was successful. I couldn't be more pleased. His staff was great

Terrible

Careless and overpriced doctor. If you want to be given a painful and abrupt exam and given little to no information then go see this guy.

Review for my deceased husband Robert.

I would recommend Dr. Vernava as a colo-rectal surgeon only. He saved my husband's life in 2008 by removing his cancerous rectum. In 2014 he had to do a resection because of a blockage. At that time, he said my husband should have no more surgeries. However, my husband developed an incisional hernia that was extremely huge. In 2015 Dr. Vernava said he could fix that. Without any warnings to us about possible outcomes he operated and 3 days later operated again because of a blockage. When my daughter called the doctor, he lied to her about what happened and I called him on it. All he said was "I'm sorry". My husband's body got so weak he could not continue with the cancer treatments. Another hernia appeared in 2015, even bigger than the last and Dr. Vernava incorporated another doctor to perform even another surgery to clear a blockage and tie up the hernia. The cancer proceeded to spread to his lung and he died this year 2016. I maintain Dr. Vernava should never have said he could fix the hernia in the first place.

so glad I knew him!

I suffer from hemorrhoids for years after have my son. Finally someone recommended me Dr. Vernava and I visit him to heard I need surgery as the only option. He did the procedure and I believe I should have done this before because I am suffering any more, he did a great job and a follow up too. I highly recommend this doctor and his crew.
