Very compassionate OB/GYN

I've been going to Dr. Persino for 10 years now and I would highly recommend his practice. He delivered two of my children and just recently, I had to undergo a robotic hysterectomy. I was really nervous about it but he assured me everything would be fine and of course, it was. The surgery went great and without any complications. In no time, I was feeling back to normal! Everything progressed as he described. He has a wonderful bedside manner and really makes you feel at ease. Dr. Persino always has a smile on his face and I don't think I've ever been to an appointment where we weren't laughing about something :) He answers all your questions and never makes you feel rushed. His staff is top notch too. If you're looking for a compassionate OB/GYN in McHenry County, he's the one for you!

Dr Persino is the Best. I came from another Dr who I was with for 10 years and Dr Persino maybe feel more comfortable about myself. I found I needed a hysterectomy and my other Dr said that it could not be laparoscopic. I went and saw Dr Persino and he said yes it could and this is my first major surgery and I was not nervous and I ended up having the robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy. He made me and my family so at ease in the hospital and answered all of our more unanswered questions. He is just the best Dr ever!!!

Excellent!!!

Dr. Persino is the best!!! I had a robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy. This was the first major surgery I have ever had, and I can't even start to tell you how nervous I was! Dr Persino put me completely at ease. He explained the procedure throughly and answered any questions I had. He is not only down to earth and funny, but also treats you as a person, not just another patient. I completely trusted him going into surgery and knew everything would go well. Recovery was exactly like he described - little, to no pain, IB profin was all I needed after going home. My recovery has gone great with no complications and I feel great!!!

Dr. Persino is the best doctor I have ever had. He is warm, welcoming, completely funny and very professional all combined in this wonderful human being. He treats every person like a human, not a patient. I see that with how everyone around him smiles and laughs. In addition, when I tell others who I have seen, they all know him and say only wonderful things about him too. I had a robotic laparascopic hysterectomy. I recovered fully within a week. Had barely any pain and scars. With all my fears and emotions about my health scare, I counted on Dr. Persino every step of the way. He is an ANGEL!

I have been seeing Dr. Persino for over 20 years. He delivered 2 of my 3 children. Recently, I have had some issues with multiple fibroids and an enlarged uterus. Dr. Persino discussed my options in great detail ensuring me all of the way, I decided on the da Vinci Hysterectomy. My surgery was 5 days ago and I am feeling great. He is a great doctor. He takes the time to go over everything answering all questions along the way. He has so much experience and has kept up with all of the newest techniques which keeps him at the top of his field. His great personality, wonderful sense of humor, and genuine care and concern for his patients on top of his experience and skill makes him the clear choice for anyone looking for a doctor. I have referred many people to him and will continue to do so as I believe that he is the best around.
