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 his office is pretty long but I think that's because, as I said, he takes time to explain things and answer all your questions.

I was very satisfied with Dr. Sforza's expertise and medical care. He was thorough, explained everything to me in detail and provided solutions. He showed a level of concern that is genuine, which is rare among other medical professionals. If our family has any needs, I would not hesitate to recommend. Plus the office is very clean, receptionist pleasant, and plenty of street parking.
