Took my mom for her colonoscopy and have nothing but great things to say about the nursing staff. They were so accommodating and helpful throughout the whole process. This is a great practice. I didn't meet with the doctor but my mom said she was very nice

I had my colonoscopy today, March 7, 2022. From the moment I walked in, I was treated very well. The RNS were so nice, courteous and helpful. Id like to recognize 2 RN'S at the Hillsborough office, RN Casey and RN Lilly. They explained everything to me, asked many questions, asthey should and made me feel very comfortable. My doctor was Dr Accurso. He was awesome. I highly recommend this location when planning and prepping for your colonoscopy. Thank you!!❤

My first colonoscopy and the staff were greatFirst nurse interaction was with Chelsea. She was really friendly and patient with this patient (I'm high maintenance being a bit of a fainter) - I felt bad for how much she had to pamper me as she prepped meNext was the anesthesiologist who I had a nice chat with before zonking out - I think I discussed the situation in Ukraine, but who knowsFinally the nurse who was with me when I woke up - another delightful person who took care of me as I came back to the world - don't recall her name because I was still a bit woozyBottom line (pun intended): I recommend 100%

I had a positive experience at DHC. They were very responsive to my questions and phone calls and always got back to me quickly, in regards to the prep, the procedure, anesthesia, billing, results.. They were on top of everything. I also got lucky the day of my procedure they were able to move my start time up. Most importantly, Dr. Gingold is a thorough, highly skilled, excellent surgeon. I very much appreciate everything he and DHC did for me. Thank you.

At age 52, just retired as a police supervisor almost 27 years, running a consulting company, I had to take the next step of making sure important aspects of my health are okay. My first time having a colonoscopy, first time going under the gas, leaves some nerves flowing big time. This entire staff all the way up to Dr. Greaves made the procedure very assuring, positive, and relaxed. I want to thank all of you for the great job in taking care of your patients!

I have had 3 procedures here over the years and Dr. Greaves and the entire staff were so professional and caring it made the procedures less stressful. From the initial visit with Dr. Greaves to all of the staff who took care of me on the day of the procedures I could not have asked for any better treatment. Thank you.

Just had a very positive experience with the people at the Center during my Colonoscopy exam. The instructions provided prior to the exam, the materials supplied and the actual procedure demonstrated to me that process improvement and process discipline is a priority at DHC. Everyone is professional, friendly and efficient.Each person introduced themselves, knew what they needed to do and showed concern for my comfort. It is so nice to have a healthcare place like this in NJ. Thank you Dr. Vergilio and Staff.
