He genuinely tries to help. He helped my mother through a difficult time and my family was so impressed. He went over her test results in detail and was so happy when she got better. My family was so grateful, and he truly made such a difference! Dr. Darlow is one of the best!

Excellent experience. He doesn't chop off every lesion in sight, diagnosing carefully and at times watching for a year if it changes.

He visited my father in the hospital everyday after he had a heart attack. Dr. Breiman went out of his way to help. Truly an exceptional individual.

Ithaca, NY Jul 15 2020

Review for Dr. Breiman

Yes, sometimes you may have to wait...never more than 30 min. for me, but it's because she takes time with each patient. Been seeing her for over 20 years and she's treated several of my serious illnesses. I can't say enough good things. Smart, competent, conservative in approach.

Did not understand physical conditions related to heart that can affect heart, and physical conditions that mimic cardiac. Then extremely disparaging towards patient that extent upin review of records was shocking.

does not understand body systems and how different health conditions can affect the heart, and other conditions mimic cardiac. Appears to be biased against women. Very condescending and disparaging in the medical records wbich he uses to cover for his lack of knowledge and competence

She refers to us (patients) as "you people" with disdain. Horrible attitude, unforgiving of 1 minute lateness no matter how far we have to travel. As soon as another female doctor was taking new patients I flew away from there!

came in with a referral told me the options I had and I decided on the one that suited my needs would recommend again excellent service all around even if the waiting room music was a little annoying

Review for Dr. Villagonzalo

He doesn’t seem to be managing my father-in-laws health at all. Just quickly prescribes a new medication to add to his already long list of medications he’s been on. Follow up isn’t good after falls, ER visits, or hospitalizations. I do not recommend him if you want good care for your loved one.

Dr. Wattoo is extremely knowledgeable, takes the time to review all of the test results, and will spend the time needed to get to the bottom of a problem. Good with follow-up to see how a treatment is working, as well. I could not recommend Dr. Wattoo more highly.
