Linda W. - "Dr. Damore is the world's best surgeon! He has very successfully performed 3 surgeries on me, 1 on my husband and one on my dad! Surgery can be somewhat scary, but we have complete confidence in Dr. Damore. He gives us excellent instructions and guides us before and after the surgeries so that our recoveries have gone very well. His surgical skills have resolved our problems and brought us back to good health! He is always approachable and available for and questions! Dr. Damore is awesome!"
Teri - "Dr. Damore and his assistant Shelli are an amazing team that made me feel welcome from the very firt phone conversation with Shelli through my post-op appointment. As a surgeon he is knowledgeable and extremely kind. He is willing to answer any question no matter how silly until you feel comfortable. He and Shelli are always on time in the office and I have never had to wait. Lastly, his surgery is like a piece of art work. After only two weeks you can barely see the scar on my neck. "
Dave A. - "I'm a retired pharmacist with 45 years of experience in both hospital and retail pharmacy. As such, I've had my share of conversations with attending physicians, surgeons, and other health care providers. Dr. Damore is an outstanding surgeon who communicates completely with his patients and leaves you confident with his abilities. I highly recommend him in meeting your surgical needs. "
Anonymous - "Dr. Damore was awesome. He picked the best surgery option for me (single site robotic cholecystectomy) and was very knowledgeable. The surgery went well and I have NO complaints. I'd highly recommend Dr. Damore for any surgery and will be going back to him in the future for anything I may need! His office staff is great too. His nurse is so friendly and the surgery scheduler (Casey) was great too. "
Donna E. - "This is my second surgery with Dr. Damore. Dr. Damore listens to his patient's concerns, answers their questions, displays professionalism and has an excellent reputation in the medical field as a superb surgeon. "
