Ratings for Dr. Antonio R. Gargiulo
It will be 3 months since my surgery and I feel great! After years of dealing with unpleasant fibroid symptoms, like heavy bleeding and constant bloating, I already notice a difference. My first period was light and short compared to previous ones. I am thrilled that I made the right decision to take the robotic-laparoscopic approach – it is life-changing. I am grateful to Dr. Antonio Garguilo and his staff at Brigham and Women's Hospital and in Exeter, NH. They made me feel like I was their only patient. They took such good care of me. Dr. Garguilo has a gentle and calm way about him that made me feel safe and protected immediately. It saddens me that I don't get to see them anymore but I guess its for my sake.
Dr. Gargiulo is an excellent doctor & surgeon!!! I am a nurse myself and was very nervous to have surgery. I am also a mother of 2 small children 3 & 5 . I Had a large fibroid that needed to be removed. His expertise & kind way of explaining things in great detail makes you feel at ease. The staff in the office are wonderful. He also prepared me for the post op course as well. I underwent a Robotic assisted laparoscopic myomectomy. My recovery was great!! The nurses pre surgery & post op & his team were wonderful. The first 3 days consisted of resting & keeping up with some pain medication. Post op day # 5 , I was only taking Motrin & Tylenol & I had to remind myself I had a major surgery after a week. Dr. Gargiulo really is amazing at what he does!! I would recommend him to any one suffering from Fibroids & does not want a huge open abdominal surgery. Robotic surgery was great. My incisions are so tiny I can't even hardly see. Thanks Dr. Garguilo, I look forward to baby # 3 now.
I had never had surgery in any shape or form before so I was very nervous when my uterine fibroids became such a problem that surgery was the only relief. But after meeting Dr. Gargiulo and speaking to him as he explained my condition and the surgery, I had no doubt it would all be fine. He has a wonderful demeanor and explains everything so well you have nothing to be worried about. His staff is excellent, courteous and replies to any email or call immediately. Even though my surgery was delayed a little the day of, the hospital staff as well as Dr. Gargiulo's team was constantly at my side checking on me and keeping me updated. After the surgery, their care (hospital staff and nurses) as well as Dr. Gargiulo's, was nothing less than exceptional. I was left amazed at how he was able to remove that many fibroids through one single incision in my belly button which after 4 months is barely visible (if at all). I would highly recommend Dr. Gargiulo and his team to anyone needing his specialized care. My experience was so great that my sister also became a patient.
Dr . Gargiulo is an extremely considerate doctor, he values his patients and want to help them understand their options so they they can reach a decision. I value Dr. Gargiulo ' s knowledge, his patience in explaining the process and his compassion. He is an extremely intelligent doctor, I always felt at ease with him, he handled my case amazingly, he was always very prompt in replying to emails and clearing last minute doubts before surgery. We had declined the use of morcellation and so Dr. Gargiulo had to remove all my fibroids ranging from 12 cm to 7 cm from a small incision in the umbilicus, which was amazing surgical work. I can hardly see the incision it's so well done. I was scared that I would need a mini lapratomy as I had declined morcellator but Dr. Gargiulo with his excellent surgical skills removed the fibroids through a single small incision...He is an amazing surgeon and I would recommend him to every woman who needs to u del go this kind of surgery. Thank you Dr. Gargiulo. ..you rock!!!!
I found out I had many fibroids, some of them massive, while I was pregnant with my first child. I suffered greatly through that pregnancy, but had my son safely by C-section at 37 weeks. Following his birth, complications from the fibroids which had grown during pregnancy worsened; pain, bleeding, bloating, sensitivity to the slightest touch, and ultimately I suffered a miscarriage with my second pregnancy at 12 weeks. I was referred to Dr. Gargiulo and BWH where he performed a myomectomy using the Da Vinci robot to remove about 10 of my fibroids. He recommended waiting 6-8 months before trying for another baby, but not long after that because fibroids grow back and I was approaching 35 y/o. We waited 7 months and got pregnant with out first attempt. I am now 35 weeks along, due on my 35th b-day. Dr. Gargiulo was kind, attentive, honest, supportive, very skilled and made me feel very secure. I would recommend him to anyone with similar health issues as I had.
I had very large uterine fibroids removed. Procedure was quick and easy. Dr. Gargiulo was delightful and very attentive. For recovery I employed the New England Rapid Recovery Center in NH, I was able to heal at such a rapid rate I nor my doctor could believe it. The NERR system had me off medications in a few days and in one week I was back to, feeling like nothing ever happened.
Dr. Antonio Gargiulo is a leader in his field. After a uterine fibroid embolization a few years ago, I went to Dr. Gargiulo and just had a robotoic myomectomy. Dr. Gargiulo is everything you want in a surgeon. I had complete trust in him, his knowledge and experience, his bed side manner. He took the time to explain my situation and the procedure. My procedure went exactly as he had said, with no complications. I highly recommend Dr. Gargiulo.
Dr. Gargiulo - hands down the best!!! After 2 years of uncontrolled bleeding, many intrauterine ultrasounds, birth control pill & IUD simultaneously, infection from multiple unsuccessful hysteroscopys (sp?), & refusal from my old GYN to remove the 4 intramural & submuscosal fibroids (and seemed not to know what to do with them even though her profile says she specializes in them?!), I decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Gargiulo. Both of my sisters were treated by him, one of which had the same procedure (don't ask why I didn't go to him from the beginning!). Dr. Garguilo was great, without hesitation he said he would take them out, and actually suggested a newer technique in going through the belly button only. I am so happy he did! I was on my feet that day, and feeling up and about 3 days later. He was super professional, explained everything, prompt follow up when I had questions for him. And his bedside manner was outstanding. No hesitations about this one, he is the best!
Dr. Garguilo performed a robot-assisted myomectomy on 4 subserosal uterine fibroids I had about 6 weeks ago. I feel great and the procedure went well with no complications. I am happy with the decision I made to go forward with him and the robot-assisted myomectomy instead of a hysterectomy to resolve my fibroid problems. It was clear from my research that he was the best and most experience surgeon to perform this myomectomy. He and his staff were always professional, informative and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Dr. Garguilo, Brigham & Women's and this procedure.
