"My mother wanted me to post this. Dr. Minaglia is my surgeon who performed a complete hysterectomy, bladder repair, and a lot of other repairs I cannot pronounce. He explained the surgery, listened to me attentively, and answered all my questions. He was familiar with all of my issues and is quite knowledgeable, bright, skilled, and very experienced. He is also personable, nice, kind, and optimistic. The surgical and nursing staff spoke positively about him and said he was an excellent doctor. His office staff are nice, professional, and helpful. My surgery went well and the outcome exceeded my expectations, my bladder works better than ever for someone in their 70s! I can easily and highly recommend him to friends and family and anyone."
"I had a complicated surgery with Dr. Minaglia. He was absolutely the best doctor ever. He explained the entire surgery, in detail and answered all my questions. He was available by phone before surgery even when I had additional questions. Highly recommend"
