Caring, provided several options and had a good understanding of me personally

June 12, 2019

I have had a complex, chronic condition that greatly reduced my quality of life. My family doctor, and sever other specialists were all having trouble diagnosing and helping me. Dr. Fasanella worked with my other specialists and spent a great deal of time and effort to figure out a course of treatment that is working for me. Every time I've seen him, He is prepared to talk about my rather uncommon condition and makes sure he takes enough time to address ALL of my issues. Dr. Fasanella is an excellent Doctor. I highly reccomend him.

Dr Fasanella always takes care to explain everything. He doesn't do everything out of the book. He looks at the whole picture, not just the symptoms. This makes him one of the top doctors I've ever seen. I wouldn't see anybody else.

I was very very pleased with Dr Fasanella and Jeff. I could tell that they had spent time looking at my records before my visit. They presented many new ideas and viewpoints that others had not brought to my attention. I look forward to continuing care with them. I have already recommended them to one friend.
