A very pleasant and good experience! I had to have a pulmonary function test, prior to my appointment. I was seen within 5 minutes of checking in, a full function test was done, and results ready for my consultation with Dr. Garofano. She was very pleasant, excellent bedside manner, and spent the time that was required to speak with me. Offices also very clean, and not crowded at all (at least when I went). Will be going back for sure!
Dr. Garofano was the third pulmonologist I've seen in 6 months and definitely the best. The past doctors I saw were only interested in treating the symptoms, not looking into the cause. Dr. G wanted to make sure I had the right diagnosis and figure out what the underlining issue is.
The staff were all friendly and professional. Dr. Garofano took time to listen and really understand my needs and concerns. I feel completely confident in her.
