Patient-oriented, highly skilled, efficient. Dr. Citro was simply amazing. I put off doing surgery for months until my wife forced me to go. I feared the surgical process and worried about possible lingering effects. When I met Dr. Citro, I felt at ease immediately. He had a quiet, pleasant confidence that re-assured me everything was going to be okay. It was. He did an incredible job. I was back to work in 3 days with no ill effects. If you need a hernia repair, choose this doctor.

I was referred to Dr. Citro by my primary care physician for gallbladder surgery. I was very nervous about having surgery but as soon as he walked in the room I felt more at ease. His confidence, explanation of the procedure, manner, and sense of humor changed my apprehension. His staff was always very helpful and polite from first contact. They guided me through the whole process of pre-admission to the hospital and scheduling my surgery and the follow up dates. I am 2 weeks out from my daVinci robotic surgery and couldn’t be more satisfied.. Last month I did not know Dr. Citro existed….This month I will never forget him. Definitely highly recommend him and he will certainly be the only one I’d call when and if needed in the future.

I was treated and healed as it was initally explained to me. I was kept informed throughout my treatment which was a great comfort. I was always treated with dignity and respect. The entire ordeal was made better with the professional care and treatment i received from Dr. Citro and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Citro as an outstanding surgeon.

Dr Citro performed hernia surgery on me in May 2018. He was totally professional at every step from scheduling through follow up. My hernia was worse than average, probably because I still exercised while I had it, but he handled it perfectly. I would absolutely go back to him if I needed to and highly recommend him to others.
Great Doctor and Staff

Dr. Citro and his staff are great. Dr. Citro answered all my questions and concerns. His office staff was able to accommodate me and work with me to schedule my surgery and the follow up.

Dr. Brian Citro and his staff RULE!

My husband and I are new residents to Summerlin, Nevada – and I spent excessive amounts of time searching for good doctors. Eight weeks to be exact. There were numerous inquiry calls made, messages left with no call-backs; rude receptionists; broken phone systems that automatically transferred me to various extensions leading somewhere beyond the galaxy; and an actual hang-up from a receptionist needing a pee break! I was becoming more and more anxious. For years, I had heard that a high percentage of Nevada doctors were rated very low on the medical scale, but was not prepared for it to be a reality after moving here. Anyway…on my umpteenth day of searching Yelp, RateMDs, Healthgrades and Zocdoc, etc., I finally found one of the best! A cycst on my chest (aka: The Alien) was the culprit that led me to Dr. Citro. (I initially thought it could be taken care of by a dermatologist, but my Primary knew it was beyond that option, and a general surgeon was needed.) Dr. Citro was not only extremely professional, very good looking, and bakes a mean Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, he totally put me at ease with his knowledge and sense of humor. I especially appreciated his reassuring bedside manner as I’m quite squeamish at the sight of a needle and scalpel – especially if I’m awake during a procedure. Except for the few little pricks of the numbing injection, there was nothing else to make me uneasy. Oh…did I mention he is Chief of Surgery at Mountain View Hospital? Thank you, Dr. Citro, for getting rid of The Alien - forever! Another extremely important bit of information: We have always believed that even an exceptional doctor is only as good as his office staff. Well, Dr. Citro’s was wonderful, and I appreciate their kindness and professionalism! I’m sure that one of my old body parts will need Dr. Citro’s service in the future – so he must NEVER retire.

Knowledgeable, good bedside manner, extremely confident. He has a great reputation with hospital staff who have mentioned that he is always on time. His office staff is friendly and wait times are minimal. I would recommend him for any surgery.

I needed Hernia Surgery, I was referred to Dr. Citro from my primary Dr. When I went to Dr. Citro for the first time , he made me feel very comfortable. He explained everything to me, what needed to be done to repair my Hernia . I had Hernia Surgery in 2015 that needed repair. Also, I had a damaged nerve from 2015 Surgery that was causing bad leg pain. Dr. Citro told me he could repair damage nerve & repair my Hernia by doing laparoscopic surgery. I had surgery on 5/24/17 no more leg pain & my Hernia was repaired. I went back to Dr. Citro after 2 weeks after surgery, he told me that everything went well with Surgery. Dr. Citro is very Professional & a Excellent personality. I recommend Dr. Citro to anyone that needs Surgery in his profession! Thank You Dr. Citro and your staff for a excellent experience! Keep up the good work!

Dr. Citro and his staff are highly professional, helpful, and nice. Dr. Citro is a problem solver - a "let's fix this so you feel better" type of doctor instead of a "let's wait and see even though you're in pain" type of doctor. The only suggestion I have is to spend a little more time with patients and explain what to expect after surgery in more detail so there's not a worry or wondering when certain things happen or pain crops up. Other than that, I had a positive experience and have added Dr. Citro to my team of doctors in case I need surgery in the future.

I am no newcomer to the surgery scene as I have had many. I would like to say that I feel very comfortable with the job Dr. Citro performed on me. I is healing well and feels great! Dr. Citro was very professional, and personable. I felt at ease with him and felt confident that he would do a good job before we ever went in for the procedure.In this day and age you need paperwork for everything like disability, FMLA, etc. Dr. Citro's office staff was not only pleasant, but were efficient and accurate in there work. I was so happy that all the paperwork was done so efficiently I must give them an a plus! Well done!
