We were new to the desert 4 years ago and needed a new doctor. We were lucky enough to find Dr Caruso. He is the best! Dr Caruso is very thorough and spends as much time as necessary with you - no rush. We are very pleased with him as well as the entire staff.

Dr. Caruso is one of the most compassionate, knowledgeable doctors I have ever dealt with. He will spend as much time with you as needed to understand the situation and recommend best solutions possible. A somewhat rare bread in today's world of medicine.

Dr Caruso is a great doctor and care giver. Unfortunately his front office and reception staff, and his PA are substandard professionals, and rude to boot. Not even remotely helpful, will give wrong info to end call/ avoiding the effort to be helpful.

It is almost impossible to talk directly to Dr. Caruso. The office staff prevents direct contact with him or with his assistant. When leaving a message on the Assistant's phone, the call back is not made until very late in the day, if at all. Dr. Caruso NEVER calls back himself, even when...more

Dr. Caruso is the best Primary Care Physicians I have ever had. His office staff are on it. They get things done. And Dr. Caruso is kind, caring and doesn't rush you through. Also has a great sense of humor!
