Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cusano "As a physician I believe I best unlock my patient's capacity to heal by listening carefully with empathy and care. My job is to make a diagnosis and design treatment, but my role is to teach my patients about their diagnosis and treatment so that together we can use the best science and technology while taking into account the limits of that science and risks of that technology to accommodate each individual's situation and preferences. My patients direct their own care under my expert guidance."

in Southington CT |
He is a compassionate physician who doesn't push pharmaceuticals down your throat. Both my wife and I are very comfortable with him.
in Waterbury, CT |
I have been with the good Doctor on and off (insurance depending) since 1994 and the man is the best PCP I ever had. A very thorough Md he takes the time to listen to my medical complaints and proceeds to examine me. He has never failed to refer me to an excellent specialist and for that I owe him my life
