Dr. Peluso put me at ease immediately. Professional, but warm and caring personality.

I absolutely love Peluso. She takes her time to listen. She kept on top of getting the authorization number for my CT. She's very easy fo understand with great bedside manners

great doctor would recommend to anyone needing these service

This was my first visit and I was put at ease immediately! The doctor had a sense of humor which made me feel very comfortable.

April 25, 2016

Very pleased with overall care from all staff, residents, med assist, and esp Dr Peluso. All very pleasant and attentive to all my concerns and needs, whether in the hospital or in the office. Arrived early for my appt and was taken in almost immediately to an exam room and taken care of. Very pleased with all the concern and attention from Dr Peluso and impressed to learn there were other options rather than just to rush off to surgery from the ER.

Service was very good and very prompt. The Doctor wasn't as personable as I would've liked but on the other hand as long as she knows what she's doing and going to do what she thinks is best for my well being and procedures to follow personality is over rated. Beside I only saw her the once for the first time so in some ways the survey is not relative. Overall I'm completely satisfied. As the saying goes, so far so good.
