Dr. Fasanella is truly the smartest, most competent, and caring physician I have ever visited. Every visit he educates me more about my condition than the rheumatologists have ever done. I never feel rushed, he answers all questions in depth, and is extremely nice. He is truly an exceptional physician.

This was an initial visit. I was very impressed with the knowledge shown regarding my case. I learned more in one hour about my condition with Dr. Fassenella and his associate that I had previously with post surgery conversations with Cleveland Clinic (where my surgery was conducted).

Dr. Fasanella and his entire staff have always been the utmost best provider and staff I have ever dealt with.
