I would and have recommended Patti to people I have infinite trust in her and feel deep in my heart that she is doing her best to keep me breathing. I listen to her like I listen to my wife and if I don't listen to my wife I don't eat. The best I can do is boil water so my wife is the boss and so is Patti. I think Patti could create a template for how doctors' should treat a patient. I am old enough to remember when the old time docs wanted you to kiss their ring. I never did it then and I won't do it now, but with Patti you feel like you are talking to a good buddy.

My experience with Dr. Vassallo exceeded my expectations. She spent a significant amount of time with me and explained so many things. I was a bit on edge going in because of the echo. I am excited about having Dr. Vassallo be my new cardiologist.

I have recommended Patti to about 5 people already. Patti is just tops. From the first moment I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. She spoke in a vernacular a lay person could comprehend. I always feel she has my best interest at heart and she is a pleasure to speak to. Great 'bedside manner' and iinordinate compassion. I feel like I've known her forever. Patti walked in the first time and introduced herself with her 1st name and smiled. Wow, just terrific. I liked her and trusted her from the get go.
