Dr. Passero is one of the most attentive, kindest, thoughtful and competent doctors I've met in my entire life. He understands my condition and is always working to improve my life. I enjoy visits with him because, despite the difficulties of my condition, he explains things carefully and discusses the details with me in a clear and interactive way. I feel like he goes above and beyond the norms and is really trying to have the best outcome possible for me. I'd give him a 12 out of 10 if I could!

Dr. Passero is the best. He knows his craft well!! And has never once treated me with any kind of disdain. I can say this about Dr. Passero he makes me feel as if he is a country doctor in small town and knows everyone personally.
