03/10/13 5 3 5 5 AMAZING PHYSICIAN!! Makes you feel very comfortable during your visit, takes time to answer questions, displays concern and care for patients. The wait time can sometimes be bothersome, however, he is a popular Dr. and I'm sure that contributes to the issue. I've read some 'not so positive' reviews on the staff, but I must disagree. All have been very positive and friendly to me (I'm a patient for 15 yrs now). Sometimes they may appear direct, but they are busy and working hard, so no time for little chat (I appreciate that). LOVE THE DOCTOR, love the office and the staff.

02/01/13 1 3 4 4 this is the first review I have ever written. I am writing this review because I need to report how frustrating the office staff made me. It took over a month with numerous phone calls to get test results. The first time this happened I let it go but the next round of lab work I got I had to deal with the same thing. Dr. Surmeli is a great doctor but I personally can not deal with his crappy staff. So if you are looking for a great doctor and can deal with annoying staff that this is the place for you.  Respond

31/10/12 2 5 5 5 Dr. Surmeli is great, the office staff is really bad, and the WORST thing is that you could be about to deliver and you may get someone else to do your delivery and some docs there are not go. Dr. Sadural is good too. I schedulled my c-section w the doc I liked and at the end they changed the date and it was a really bad experience with dc. Wimmer and the resident doc on call that day.  Respond

07/02/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Surmeli is extremely knowledgable and genuinely caring Dr. He delivered my second child. When I was in labor, all I wanted was for him to be there. He is so calming & understanding. He provided me with just the right amount of confidence that I needed. I'm a high risk patient and didn't have the most pleasant delivery with my first child. But Dr. Surmeli changed all that. He is the one responsible for my little miracle. He is without a doubt the BEST Doctor around. He Truly cares.

29/07/10 4 3 5 5 I love Dr. Surmeli. He is extrmeley knowledgele and makes you feel comfortable in an instant. I wish I would have went to him when I was pregnant with my 3 children but unfortunately I was not aware of his practice at the time. I agree with other postings that you have to wait to long to get an appointment for yearly exam. Waiting time is long and he does apologize for the long wait.

14/07/09 5 5 5 5 I've been his patient for almost 4 years now. I've had many pap smears, but he was the most gentle ever. Extremely helpful through 2 complicated pregnancies. He made me feel welcome to ask questions from the beginning, and even involved my husband in the whole process. I've called for emergencies at all hours of the night, and he has responded literally within 3 minutes.His service is outstanding :-)Love him

12/02/09 5 4 5 5 Dr. Surmeli is without a doubt the best OBGYN a patient could ever ask for. He is thorough, professional and genuinely caring. He delivered both of my children and has also seen me for regular routine visits. Unfortunately for me I relocated with my family to NC and am not able to continue in his care. I often joke that if I should become pregnant again I would have to move back to NJ temporarily to have Dr. Surmeli deliver my baby! Best doctor and practice (Dr. Sadural and Wimmer are also awesome). Highly recommend going to this practice.

15/04/08 2 1 5 5 Dr. Surmeli is wonderful! He is has an easy going manner and is extremely professional and polite. As we ladies know, going to the gynocologist is not the most pleasant experience. Dr. Surmeli immediately puts his patients at ease. He listens to their concerns and is willing answer any questions. There should be more doctors like him! On the down side, the office staff don't always answer the phone. Often, the answering service picks up when the office is supposed to be open. Waiting time is too long. I wait at least 30 - 45 minutes for a scheduled appointment. I understand that Dr. Surmeil is both a GYN and an obstetrician, but it would be helpful if the office staff would tell patients when doctor is running late.
