Dr. Pisaturo saw me at my first visit and afterwards, essentially never again. Not sure why he elected to be a pain doctor when he has no emphathy and won't even meet with patients about medication changes he demands. I've been dealing with a severe pain condition for over ten years that is documented and has required multiple surgeries. I don't even know if he realizes this since he never meets with me, but his nurses certainly don't seem to recognize it. I could not recommend enough that you avoid this "doctor" and his clinic.

The amount of time, level of interest, extent of his questions and the detail of his answers to my questions were all well beyond what I had experienced in my past. He remained involved at a primary level, meeting with me (in addition to his staff) during each appointment until the treatment plan was determined and he was able to confirm with me that it was working. Given the significant practice growth, I now see other clinic physicians, but could see him upon insistence. Highly recommended

Had my first appointment with Dr. P this week. He was excellent. Explained options, gave me information to research, was kind and caring. I wish all doctors, no matter their speciality, treated patients as he does. His nurse was also kind and sweet. She was great, as well as the office staff. I hope all of my visits go this well.
