There are no words to describe the care I have received from Dr. Pannucci and his fellow, Alvin. Dr. Pannucci has treated me with his incredible talent has a surgeon, and more importantly as a person. I sing his accolades wherever I go and to whoever will listen. Where my recovery currently is, is due to Dr. Pannucci and his talents as my surgeon.UofU Patient November 15, 2016
Dr. Pannucci was extremely knowledgeable about my situation even tho I had never seen him before. He explained every aspect very thoroughly.UofU Patient October 25, 2016
There needs to be a higher number to rate the excellence in care Dr. Christopher Pannucci has provided me. I was admitted to the U hospital and taken to emergency surgery 2 days later. I had no idea who Dr. Pannucci, my surgeon, was but after meeting him and talking with him I knew I was in more than capable hands. Dr. Pannucci was precise in telling me the medical issue along with what he did during the surgery, and what the plan was for future surgeries to take care of the problem. I had some personal issues at home that only I could deal with and Dr. Pannucci listened to me and understood my needs. He was beyond in his understanding and worked with me so as I could take care of my personal needs as well as taking care of my health needs. I have only worked with one other surgeon that has taken the time to listen to me and to take into consideration what I was saying as they planned their medical care of my physical needs. At my office visit with Dr. Pannucci was exactly the same compassionate surgeon that I dealt with in the hospital. During my office visit after his examination of my open wound he outlined his plan for me very clearly what he expected from me for him to be successful in getting me healthy again. Dr. Pannucci needs to be held as an example to all other medical teams he deals with as an exemplary surgeon in his surgical skills, but more importantly how to deal with patients. His residents that work with him need to realize and understand how fortuUofU Patient October 07, 2016
I felt the doctor was trying to "sell" me on a procedure that is far more extensive than I want, and I was mortified by the photo book. The pictures of the reconstructions he has done looked so disfiguring to me. I was not impressed with the work I saw in the pictures, and would prefer no reconstruction at all if those photos represent the best the doctor has to offer.UofU Patient August 01, 2016
Pinnuchi makes me feel safe and secure and well taken care of.UofU Patient July 20, 2016
dr. Pannuchi is amazing!UofU Patient July 13, 2016
Cancer can be an awful diagnosis but everyone I see at Huntsman makes it so much easier. There is not enough time and space to say wonderful things about Dr Pannucci, his skill and his whole team. My surgery decisions were easy after the discovery of my BRCA 2 mutation. I have complete trust in my surgeon and he did everything he could to get me to where I am today. I couldn't be happier with my care. Thank you.UofU Patient July 07, 2016

Dr. Pannucci is great!UofU Patient May 10, 2016
Always great.UofU Patient April 24, 2016
This was a great pre op visit for both my husband and me. The Dr carefully explained all the options, different surgery choices, gave me the choice to cancel the scheduled surgery if we needed more time, etc. He made sure we understood this decision I had made. We both had full confidence in Dr Pannucci and his team. As a retired RN, I was fully aware of risks of surgery, etc. yet I was calm and ready for this surgery.UofU Patient April 03, 2016
I would highly recommend Dr Pannucci to anyone he is a very talented Doctor. I have met way to many Doctors over the years and he puts most of them to shame. Great Job DocUofU Patient March 27, 2016

Dr Panuchi? is the kindest doctor I have been around and so is his resident doc he has with him. I cannot remember his name, but he is equally as nice. These guys are smart and have good people skills. that is rare these days.UofU Patient June 17, 2015
I wasn't prepared for some of the results/recovery from surgery. I wish I had known what to ask prior to surgery. Maybe going over the procedure in more detail before surgery would have been helpful for me. I would have understood where some of the pain was coming from.UofU Patient May 26, 2015
Dr. Pannucci is outstanding. He always takes the time to fully explain everything. He is very easy to talk with and he inspires great confidence in his expertise and surgical recommendations. We are fortunate to have him in Salt Lake City.UofU Patient March 04, 2015
Dr. Pannucci represents the absolute gold standard in a physician/surgeon - outstanding surgical skills and the best demeanor. He is very easy to talk with and ask questions regarding past and upcoming surgeries. He inspires the greatest confidence in his ability to provide solutions and achieve the desired results, regardless of how difficult the challenge. Thank you!UofU Patient January 11, 2015
all goodUofU Patient January 02, 2015
Dr. Pannucci is exceptional in every way. His knowledge and expertise are outstanding. However, it is his demeanor, willingness to give whatever time I need, and his ability to communicate that he genuinely cares about me as a person and not just a unique procedure, where he really stands out. He has seen me through a very difficult time, and I have the highest confidence in him. I feel very fortunate to have a doctor of his incredible talent and kindness.
