What People Say About Dr. Alvin Sanico, MD
Reply
I visited Dr. Sanico for the first time last month. While he seemed knowledgeable, he did not listen to me and my concerns, and promptly went off to treat another issue that I did not come in to see him for. I've had a longstanding medical issue, that is causing me extreme discomfort, and he didn't want to address it at all, he merely shrugged it off and didn't listen to what I was telling him. Based on my experience, I did not return for any further appointments.

I was under the care of another Asthma specialist for several years. However, I felt that not only was I not improving to my satisfaction-- my former doctor did not communicate well and explain what was actually going on during my visits. I switched to Dr. Sanico after learning how he helped someone I know. I am extremely pleased with my results and he always explains and shows me what is actually happening.
