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.
