I love Dr. Caruana! I have been seeing him for many years and he is the person That found my gastroparesis when everyone else thought I was just being anorexic or bulimic. He is also treating me for my primary biliary cirrhosis and I wouldn't have it any other way! He is truly a Doctor Who cares about his patients. That means the world to me!
Thank you for taking the time to write this kind review, Doreen!

I have been a patient of Dr.Caruana for almost 4 years after having a severe attack of Diverticulitis.At every office visit he was genuinely concerned about any questions that I may have had.I cant thank him enough for all that he's done to get me back to health.Moving to Florida soon and will miss the expert care Digestitive Diseases has provided.Thanks again.
