Dr. Gaetano is fantastic! I have already recommended him to multiple people. He takes so much time to make sure I am comfortable and understand what he is saying. He also allows me to ask as many questions as I need and is very knowledgeable, yet kind. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about him and feel fortunate to be in his care.

Dr. Gaetano is a top notch professional. He is thorough, deeply knowledgeable and compassionate. He is prepared for our visits and always patient with my questions and concerns. Six months ago I was diagnosed with a serious condition. He immediately developed a comprehensive care plan. His guidance and support has made a substantial contribution to my renewed health and well-being and has reduced the negative consequences of my diagnosis.
