  • Dr. Sammartino and Dr. Scarini were really wonderful, helping me with an injury way past working hours and on short notice!!! They were very helpful and kind, reassuring me the whole way, and giving me their numbers to get in touch with them if anything happens in the meanwhile. Will definitely be contacting them again if I need surgical/medical help!!!

  • Dr. Sammartino and Dr. Scarinci have taken excellent care of me during my treatment. Prompt in answering any and all questions. Entire process has been great.

    Derek Anderson Cooper
  • I am writing from my first chemotherapy treatment. I want to express my thanks to you for your expert execution of my right hemicolectomy November 22, 2017. The laparoscopy was successful, little discomfort and rapid recovery. I am very thankful for all the above. Thank you for your superb skill and caring.

    Martha Tisda
  • I wanted to thank you for the excellent outcome of my hernia repair. You treated me with respect and care. The surgery went very well and now, at the two and a half week point after surgery, I can run, lift boxes, etc and don’t ever feel the repair. You are clearly very good at what you do. Also, I want to mention that the Salvator Mundi International Hospital staff are very good and I would not hesitate to recommend the center to anyone. All in all, I feel that I got the very best care available today.

    Arthur Priscott
  • I had Surgery April 20, 2017. I was traveling from Florida. They were very caring and professional, routine, and successful. Would highly recommend. Only thing I would add is: Dr. Scarinci and Dr.Sammartino, come visit Florida and get a tan!! You need one!

    Karen Morins
  • I just want to “thanks” again. My hernia surgery was done on 09/29/2017 and it was a complete success. It is by far the best thing I have ever done for myself. I feel like I have a new lease on life, finally.
