    - in Clifton Park, NY |

    Dr. DiSantis stepped in and saw me as a fit in. I was anxiously awaiting my tests results when I received a phone call at 10:30 pm stating that the Dr. I was supposed to see for the 2nd time wasn't going to be there the next day. I was frantic-no explanation was given to me-I called at 8am the morning of my scheduled appointment and they gave me to Dr. DiSantis. What a blessing! He gave me the results of my tests and spoke to me at length. He was kind, compassionate and very professional.
