Review for Dr. Rotoli

Dr Sattar is without a doubt the most incredible doctor I’ve met. He’s caring, he’s patient, he’s skilled, he’s compassionate. I am very fortunate to have him as my doctor!!!

Review for Dr. Sattar

This was my initial visit with Dr. Kaptain. He made me feel very at ease and explained while showing my CT scan. He took the time answering all my questions. He didn’t rush the appointment. Very pleased and would highly recommend him.
