Great experience overall. Pretty standard visit - height/weight/vitals, history download, scratch tests, results & recommendations, with nothing terribly severe identified. Still, she took a good amount of time to take a full historyand listened patiently while my 8yo son talked his head off and went on tangent after tangent. And she made it clear to me how she could help and how she couldn't. Waiting room was sufficient and had a few toys for young children. Exam room was also fine, with a few toys and magazines. I'd recommend her to friends and family for sure.

She made me feel like I should have gone to my pediatrician first and was questioning me as to why I didn’t. I was trying to explain my son and what works and she wasn’t very receptive. My son normally seesDr. Borts whom we love but he was fully booked so we got in with Josie. I left I tears feeling like I wasn’t being understood. Very disappointed! She said he could have hand foot and mouth but why tell me that if that’s not the case. I took my son to his pediatrician right after bc I felt her feedback was very unprofessional.

Allergy testing never fun but can be especially tricky for a two year old. Dr. Vitale was fantastic. She listened, she understood and she was extremely thorough. She was honest with what she thought would work and what she believed wouldbe a waste of time and energy which I was grateful for. The nurse that did the testing was so fast she made it as easy as possible. And all but one less-than-warm reception person was as friendly as could be.

Dr. Vitale was wonderful! I loved the fact that she was so personable. Dr. Vitale was the one that called us in from the waiting room and took us back to a room and starting talking to us right away. Dr.Vitale made my daughter feel very comfortable as well as myself. Dealing with a child with allergies can be a very scary thing and Dr. Vitale made both of us so at ease. My daughter is 13 so Dr. Vitale talked to her most of the time, I loved this because after all she is the patient. I have already recommended Dr. Vitale to several people.

I immediately felt comfortable with the doctor which is always a plus in my book for a very compassionate and willing to listen to me as I described my conditions and why I was there. She asked al the right questionsto my concerns and when I left I felt I had found the right doctor to help me with my long existing problems. I would recommend he Dr Vitale to anyone looking for a king and giving allergist.

It was good. Really could use a face cradle or something to rest head on the 15 minutes wait time for allergy testing on back! The nurse or assistant who administered the two PFT tests was excellent in explaining and givingthe test. Not sure how fast they will get me in for followup if I start wheezing, as Dr Vitale said she wanted me to call and get in for another PFT if I started wheezing. Of course I did on the weekend! :) Overall very good experience. Just curious to see what my actual costs will be after insurances.

Dr. Vitale is very thoughtful with her patients. She does not just default to giving a prescription to send me on my way, she shows such consideration in her work and her patients. She is very personable, stays up to datewith things, rather than just business-like manners and maintains her professional boundaries.
