This was my first time going to see Dr. Sforza. I have seen many doctors in my life and unfortunately a lot of them lack the basic qualities to be a good physician. Well, Dr Sforza doesnt lack any quality thatmakes a great physician. He was kind, understanding, knowledgeable and very patient. He had so many patients waiting for him but he never made me feel like he was rushing with me. All the staff there are also very friendly. I will definitely be going back to him.

This was my first time visiting his new office and he is still very close to my home. I was very happy to see his office manager was still with him in his new office. She was the reason I startedgoing to him a few years ago. When a doctors office staff is friendly and takes the time to talk to you it says a lot about the doctor. As for Dr. Sforza he is wonderful. He talks to you and does not rush the appointment. He makes sure and listens to all our concerns and questions. I plan on moving to another state but will continue seeing him on my trips back to NY every year. It is very hard for me to trust any doctors, but Dr Sforza & his staff makes it very easy for me to overcome it. I highly recommend him.

Short wait and very nice staff. I arrived early and everything was electronic (no extra paperwork) - just had to e-sign for privacy laws, etc. I was taken in for initial eval on time. From there, waited maybe 10 minutes tosee the doctor. He was friendly and answered all my questions. He's a fast talker but so am I so no issues there!

The office is really dated and there are a lot of old people there but it was ok. One thing I didn't like was that they moved me around to different rooms a lot. They had me in 3 different rooms They saw me on time though

Dr. SFORZA is very knowledgable, and takes his time to explain things to you. I never feel rushed when I ask him a question. He's always kind, compassionate and professional. I would recommend him to anyone. The wait time in hisoffice is pretty long but I think that's because, as I said, he takes time to explain things and answer all your questions.
