I feel very fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Piriano. She is a true professional, and I always have the feeling she is looking at all aspects of my health in order to help me maintain the best possible outcomes.

Everyone was great as always.

I would rate Dr. Pireano as one of the best doctors I have had the experience to work with. Ever. Her manner is very deliberate, no nonsense, and quite refreshing. When you talk with Dr. Pireano, she really talks to you and listens to every detail of what you say. I think she is a terrific Doctor. She sets a very high standard for all others to follow.

I always have an excellent experience with Dr. Piraino. She is very knowledgeable but also treats me with respect when she speaks to me. I have been under her care for 20 years and she has taken good care of my health.

June 29, 2017

I travel from Florida twice a year to continue my check ups with Dr Beth Piraino. She is a true Doctor ! I trust her with my life and my family's. (My Mother, sister, brother, and son have all been patients and absolutely love her.). Letitia Williams has been a Godsend as well. She always (100%) returns calls and follows through on every question or request - many times going beyond what many other providers are willing to do. Over these many years I have become accustomed to this VIP TREATMENT every time I call or visit. I know Dr. Piraino and Tish genuinely care about me and I am so thankful for them.
