What People Say About Dr. Alfred Petrocelli, MD
Reply
I was misdiagnosed with Lupus some years ago. Dr. Petrocelli did not agree and to make sure, had some special tests done. I had been so devastated by having lupus, but I did not have it. One test, ANA, was very high and it is a marker for Lupus together with a rash on my face. Well, the rash was rosacea and the ANA was high due to hormone therapy for years. I appreciate his intelligence and his persistence in helping me and his other patients. I know I will always have good care from Dr. P

My health history is complex. It can be frustrating for medical professionals when conditions resist diagnosis and response to treatment. Dr. Petrocelli has been unfailingly persistent, thorough, able to think outside the box, and good natured. In a matter totally unrelated to my reason for seeing him, he deduced I had a cardiac issue, referred me for an ECHO cardiogram, and I was in open-heart surgery asap. He literally saved my life. Dr. Petrocelli gives 150% both online and face-to-face.
