I went to be treated by Dr Cucchiara and he either could not make a proper diagnosis, or didn't believe me when I described my severe symptoms. After a year of seeing him and not getting answers to my problems, I switched to a different physician who, on the very first visit, diagnosed me and started treatment which relieved my excruciating pain. Don't go here for treatment. Go to Johns Hopkins Hospital where there are better doctors.
