Sansum Clinic Physician Since
"I have just had all my check ups after 2 years. Thank you to Dr. Petrini for being very efficient and helpful, and for getting me through a painless colonoscopy." - L. M.
"Thank you so much for all you have done for me. Loretta and I feel so fortunate to have you as one of my physicians the past 12 years. I knew I could call you anytime and get thoughtful and professional advice. The round trip from our home to Sansum gets more different each time and now my condition seems to be stable and reactive. Thank you again, I owe you a lot. It has been a pleasure to know you and be your patient."
"I received a “test results” letter from Sansum Clinic stating that my polyp was not pre-cancerous, what a relief to me. This good news however, was only the last in a series of good feelings as I wended my way through the process of having my first colonoscopy. From here on in, I will be one to reassure other friends on this procedure and it will be my honor to recommend Dr. Petrini to others who may be feeling the same trepidations that I did."
"Dr. Petrini has a personality that makes colonoscopies, perhaps not enjoyable, but certainly informative and tolerable. Thank you Dr. Petrini."
