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.

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.
