I was recommended to Dr. Zalucki for a second opinion after having a very bad experience with another Doctor from... another state. I must say that Dr. Zalucki is a extremely good doctor, he took time to ensure that he understand my situation and explained every detail of my condition to me.. He listened to my concerns and helped me understand what options I could take. He never pressured me into my decision, He performed colon surgery on me and he did a outstanding job!!!, I didn't experience any complications his follow up was great after surgery. Dr. Zalucki is a man of integrity who I would highly recommend to my family and friends!!read more

I found Dr. Zalucki after a not so charming experience with another doctor. Zalucki is extremely thorough and takes his... time explaining things to you. You don't feel rushed. My PCP spoke highly of him and if she did then I knew he was legit.The building he works in is old. Seems like it's been there since the 70s or something. They've been doing some interior work, I guess to bring it up to date. The inside of Zalucki's practice is very small and narrow. His equipment is old as well.He has 2 women who work for him. Neither is warm and welcoming. One does the scheduling and the other sets the appointments and stands in as Zalucki examines patients. One of the women (Theresa?) looks like she's been working for him since the 1980s and has an 80s hairstyle from when hairspray reigned supreme. She can sound a bit condescending. I got certain vibes from her, and some will understand what I mean when I say that.The receptionist you see when you enter seems like she really does not enjoy her job or stays stressed all the time. She always looks annoyed. My first visit I was taken to the exam room by her. I was told to drop my pants and bend over a chair that had some aged/torn leather which electronically levitated downward. I wasn't expecting her to hold my hand, but this was my first time experiencing this type of exam and I was already uncomfortable. I felt like I was piece of cattle. While Dr. Zalucki came in and explained what he was doing as he examined me, it was not a good first impression or experience.I've heard both women talk about a patient after one got off the phone with them, which I found unprofessional. The one who appears as though she does not want to work there or stays stressed is the ringleader in terms of talking about patients when she gets off the phone with them. That only tells me they talk about me too when I call.Albeit the interpersonal skills of the receptionists/assistants, they do run a smooth ship in terms of appointments and scheduling. Zalucki is a good doctor. He did a successful surgery on me.read more

I had been having hemorrhoid issues for a few years and after it got bad enough to where I could not ignore it anymore... I went to see Dr. Zalucki a few months ago. He was very nice, professional and informative and there were no other options so I had the removal surgery. It went well and my prior pain and leakage issues were completely resolved. Then I started watching my diet more closely and have been feeling much better ever since and working on stool management to keep it under control. I can only say that in hindsight I wish I would have seen Dr. Zalucki sooner so that I would not have had to deal with the issues for last few years, but I am definitely glad I went in when I did and am very appreciative for the caring and good work that Dr. Zalucki did to help me. Thank You Dr. Zalucki!read more

Very helpful and informative staff. The doctors explain your whole procedure in detail and gives you a total... understanding of what your surgery will do for your long term health. No long waits to be seen and examined. The friendliest attitudes from everyone all around. Just a totally wonderful experience dealing with this office.read more

My husband and I are so grateful for what Dr. Zalucki has done not only for me, but for my quality of life, which has... had an enormous impact on our family (we also have four small children). I was desperate for help, and had been in severe chronic pain for an extended period of time. The current provider I HAD been seeing failed in multiple ways at being what I would consider a good doctor. In desperation...I happened to find Dr. Zalucki. His staff was empathetic and got me into to see him that day. I saw Dr. Zalucki and was in surgery within 48 hours and my health steadily improved. Through out the process I made a late night phone call to him on a Saturday evening and I'll never forget how kind and re assuring he was about my concerns. Dr. Zalucki prioritized ME AND MY PAIN and eliminating it...and that is what a patient needs...and a doctor who does that, is a good doctor.read more

I was so scared to have this surgery and I waited so long to do it. Finally it got to an unbearable point so I needed... to get it done. Prior to the procedure Dr. Zalucki made time for my appointment and my emergency phone call. A few days later I had my procedure, it went smoothly and I feel much better now. Dr. Zalucki made me feel at ease prior to the surgery and after. He is a very caring and talented surgeon and I would recommend him highly!read more

Dr. Zaluki took the time to squeeze me in his very busy schedule to discuss issues I was having with my hemorrhoids. He... took time to ask me questions about how long it has been going on along with other issues to narrow down the best treatment for me.I ended up needing surgery and he and his staff made sure I was relaxed and comfortable before and after. I would highly recommend him to anyone with the same issues.Brian Tread more

I had a 9+ lb baby in Dec 2020 who really did a number on me. Dr. Cifello got me in quickly while still on maternity leave and at every step attempted the least invasive intervention possible. When an in-office procedure did not fix my symptoms despite his best efforts, he was able to schedule me for surgery quickly. The surgical center is lovely and I had NO post-op pain, which was such a pleasant surprise. After the surgery Dr. Cifello even went out to the parking lot to update my husband, who could not come in due to COVID. The procedure completely resolved my symptoms. I felt like I was in the best hands the whole time. Dr. Cifello's staff, Ann and Patty, are also so kind and I was always in and out of his office with no wait.

Dr. Cifello has excellent bedside manner and is very knowledgeable and skilled. I have always left his office feeling like I am in good hands. His front desk staff is also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended! Update: Just had a three week post-op check in with Dr. Cifello, and I'm almost completely healed. Dr. Cifello did such a wonderful job and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Can't thank him enough for his care.

I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer back in October 2020. I had no idea what to do next, so I started calling colorectal surgeons in my area. Patty and Anne are the sweetest duo you could ever meet. Patty went above and beyond to fit me into the schedule. And within two business days, I had my consult with Dr. Cifello. It was something about his delivery, knowledge of the subject, and confidence, that won me over on the first day. From one medical professional to another, Dr. Cifello you are a RockStar. He wasted no time confirming my diagnosis. And within a week, the entire tumor was removed from my colon, before it was able to spread. So, thank you Dr. Cifello for saving my life. I never would have guessed at the age of 42, I would be saying I am now cancer-free. That is why I am convinced that God picked you for me. Thanks Monique S.

Just let me state that the reviews for Dr Cifello are all true. Dr Cifello performed a colon re-section on July 22nd and he was available to answer any questions that I had after surgery. I no longer have any discomfort with the issues of diverticulitis that were present before surgery. I will honestly recommend Dr Cifello to anyone that needs a surgeon, and he will keep you relaxed with his sense of humor. By the way, Patti and Anne were of great assistance during and after surgery. Eduardo
