“Availability, a;ability and technical ability. They’re what it takes to be a great surgeon,” says Dr. Steven Priolo. He and
Drs. Tarun Bhandari and James Pasquariello o;er a wide range of surgical specialties, from simple wound care to complex robotic
procedures. Their group, including seven other surgeons, provides services at four o;ces and three hospitals across Central Jersey.
Dr. Priolo, a highly experienced general surgeon, has practiced for 17 years. Dr. Bhandari is a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist.
Dr. Pasquariello, a laparoscopic and bariatric surgeon, helped establish Ocean Medical Center’s Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery
Institute. “We also o;er breast, colorectal, head and neck, thoracic and vascular surgery,” he says. “We’re a one-stop shop.”
The three doctors, board certified in general surgery, share a belief in compassionate care. Patients see them for initial consultations, in
hospital, at follow-up visits—and by phone for questions and urgent issues. “We’re always available for middle-of-the-night emergencies or
complicated high-risk cases— and we get good results,” says Dr. Bhandari. “That’s why doctors refer patients here.”
