Verified Patient Reviews
He was great! Told me everything I needed to know and answered all my questions. Highly recommend.
Dr. Vitolo, Steve and the whole office are tremendous. Dr. Vitolo and Steve thoroughly examined me and thoughtfully explained my condition. The ailment I saw them for had been nagging me for weeks and I feared the worst. They quickly allayed my fears and prescribed a treatment program that I'm comfortable with. This is a top-notch organization that I wholeheartedly recommend.
Dr Vitolo was very comprehensive in helping me understand my situation and very patient when answering all of my questions.
He was very personable, and I appreciated his open manner. He made the visit comfortable as well as quick and to the point.
Pleasantly surprised. Wait times were quite reasonable. Moved from initial consultation to x-ray back to final diagnosis very smoothly. Everyone worked in a professional manner and staff was quite pleasant, smiles were abundant. The doctor had an excellent bedside manner and I never felt rushed. He made me feel important and explained my problem in plain English.
