Dr. Hugo is kind, compassionate, a good listener and patiently explains condition and prognosis. He is an outstanding physician and I recommend him without reservation.

Review for Dr. Hugo

I was referred to Dr. Visco for an ultrasound to check for compressed nerves in my lower back and hip areas. His resident assistant Dr. Bartolo and Dr. Visco himself both used such pressure with the US device that the procedure was very painful, and the area has felt worse ever since.
