Dr. Pandolfino is the best! I am so glad that I was referred to him almost 5 years ago for treatment of my achalasia. He is attentive and actively listens to me and my concerns. I feel that together we have a plan for treatment. Additionally, he is committed to caring for all my GI needs whenever they may arise.

Dr. Pandolfino is an excellent, caring physician. I never feel rushed when I see him. He takes ample time to review my record, answer my question, offer his diagnosis and course of treatment, explaining in detail why. I would definitely recommend him.

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Pandolfino. He spent a great deal of time reviewing my condition and background of treatments thus far. He looked at film of procedures that were taken, prior to his coming to the exam room. I have a great deal of confidence in his approach and treatment plan.
