Dr Dolce was great with explaining and taking his time with me so I was fully informed with my procedure. Due to my circumstances he was able to schedule my surgery in a very timely manner. Would highly recommend him. Can not say enough good things about him.

Dr. Charles Dolce new phone number is 623-584-4882. He is a great doctor. He was patient with me and took the time I needed to explain my care. I called him at the phone number listed after his office moved locations and was directed incorrectly. The number I listed above is his new office.
