there was a miscommunication regarding the purpose of my visit (a new patient visit), so the doctor initially wasn't given the heads up and i was delayed a little. no big deal, more embarassment on their part.

I have rarely seen this level of professionalism, medical knowledge, and personal interest in my well being as is shown by Dr. Checchia-Romano. Dr Checcia-Romano focuses on the immediate issues and develops actions to address them, and she also looks to longer range issues and advises actions on that also.

I've been going to this office for several years and have always been satisfied with the level of care and treatment they provide. I've seen just about every doctor on staff here and each one of them will take the time to listen to what's bothering me and get me back to feeling better in no time. The office staff is very friendly and does their best to get me an appointment when needed, especially on short notice. I would recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for quality family medical care.
