long wait, then wait again to schedule a followup after gathering information on the dr who referenced Dr Paterno, think the staff would already have this information... Plus Dr Dryer medical records were not on hand for my visit, very unprofessional, better organization is needed with office staff

Bedside manner
Dr. Paterno has an excellent bedside manner. Listens to your concerns, answers questions, and gives a thorough examination. Wait times, especially in a city as large as ours, are to be expected for any specialist. I do not mind waiting for a superb physician.
