De.Carl Restivo on Sherman Ave, JC,NJ is an excellent Rheumatologist. He cares for his patients and is very knowledgeable. The problem that I had was trying to get an appointment. The staff never pick up the phone, I had to call Christ Hospital to see if he was still in service. The operator in Christ hospital called the office for me, gave the staff my number and they never called. Finally when I got the appointment I told Dr. Restivo, the staff was rude, nasty and unprofessional. I get the feeling they run the show and he’s not aware. One of the staff told me off for complaining. Even though I know he can help me, still wondering if I should go back.

I've been a patient of Dr Restivo's for about years and he's changed my life. He's a very compassionate doctor and has helped me and my family feel so comfortable with my RA. He put me on medications that stopped my disease and I thank god for him everyday. He treats me like family. I'd never consider going to anyone else. I highly recommend him and his wonderful staff.
