Before Dr. Kristi Tough DeSapri came in to see me she was already well aware of my health history. That is so reassuring for a patient to know that the doctor actually cares about the patient's wellbeing. Also, I didn't feel rushed out and on to the next patient. Dr. DeSapri is very knowledgeable and patient with my questions. She explained everything and sometimes twice because of my questions. I would definitely recommend Dr.DeSapri. Thank you for this opportunity to express my views.

This was my first visit with Dr. DeSapri, but it was one of the most thorough and professional visits I have ever had. She was also patient, informatively, caring and left me feeling very comfortable and ready to proceed with the care that I need. My internist, Dr. Hiotis, is the same way and he chose well when he recommended Dr. DeSapri for consultation for my osteoporosis. I am extremely pleased.

Dr. DeSapri was very welcoming and warm. She told me that she spent an hour, the night before my visit, going over my history. I've worked for doctors my entire adult life, and I have never known any of them to take that kind of interest, especially on their own time. The doctor spent a very generous amount of time for our visit. She seemed extremely knowledgeable and truly concerned about me. She supplied me with a lot of helpful information regarding my condition. The next day, when my lab work was complete, Dr. DeSapri, herself, called me to discuss the results. I can tell you, from experience, that usually the doctor will have a nurse, or an assistant, call patients about their test results. .I was quite impressed with Dr. DeSapri, and look forward to working with her in the future.

I met with Dr. DeSapri for the first time. Dr. DeSapri was excellent in every way. She listened attentively to my history, reviewed my Dexa Scans and blood work from recent years, and ordered a scan of my vertebrae - which no doctor has ever done before. She was professional, knowledgeable, empathetic, and just plain incredibly nice, too. I'm delighted to have found her.
