It was such a pleasure to meet with Dr. Terlizzi. Very thorough with his examination and his explanations of what procedures he was going to perform on me. He listened attentively to what I had to say and gave me lots of feedback. I came from Canada to get the diagnosis and treatment that I have needed since August 2017. I’m scheduled for surgery in 3 weeks and he’s already done biopsies today that wouldn’t be done until July in Canada. All the staff and assistants were so friendly and helpful. He’s a gem :)

Dr. Terlizzi and his staff were extremely kind, helpful, and accommodating when I scheduled a very last-minute appointment. They made an effort to fit me into the schedule even earlier than I was hoping for. Dr. Terlizzi himself was very informative, answered my questions, and was very personable and easy to talk to. I myself felt shy going in but my concerns about awkwardness were quickly eased.

Dr. Terlizzi and his staff were amazing. Words cannot describe how great everyone was! I had an in-office procedure done right after my consultation, which was painful and uncomfortable, but Dr. Terlizzi and his staff eased me through the whole thing. I also had a million questions and he took the time to sit down with me and answer every single one of them before and after my procedure. I would only recommend Dr. Terlizzi; he was so incredibly kind, knowledgeable and courteous. Best doctor and staff I have ever had in New York City!
