“I went to Dr Murino with potentially worrying symptoms after my GP requested to be urgently seen by a specialist. Dr Murino has been very attentive and clear in each step, from assessing the issue to diagnosing after performing some tests (colonscopy - that he performed in person - and abdominal scan). Tests were arranged fast and despite the covid delays, colonscopy went exceptionally well, no side effects at all and he has also been extremely understanding and helped managed my anxiety during the test. Competent specialist. Highly recommended. “

Ho dovuto fare una colonscopia ed ero terrorizzato ma il Dott. Murino ha saputo tranquillizzarmi e ha operato in modo eccellente, persona estremamente disponibile e preparata, spero di non aver bisogno spesso di fare certe visite, ma se dovessi, ritornerei alle sue cure perché mi fido ciecamente.
