    Saw him twice while in St.Joes North.Terrible bed side manners,no sense of communication and was clueless!I would not recommend him,ask for some one else if you get stuck with him!I don't know how he graduated high school much less medical school!

    Be warned of Dr. Pastore. He orders testing procedures performed in his office (and out- patient) that are not always needed. I have some very minor issues, and he recommended heart catheterization!! He wouldn't answer questions when asked and just kept saying the same evasive things it was like he was on the clock and ready to get to his next patient. He tries to push and scare you into agreeing to unneeded tests at even greater expense (to his benefit, of course) without any answers.

    I believe i would not be here today, had I not seen Dr. Pastore. I had seen 7 other cardiologist, the past 6 years, testing good on several stress tests. None of the other Drs would listen to me when i explained to them I do not have classic symptoms. I can not tolerate statins, and in fact the last cardiologist told me he couldn't do anything for me. Dr. Pastore was the first to listen to me and believed me when I stated how bad I felt. He found 5 arteries almost totally clogged. 6/29/16

    Wouldn't recommend this doctor. He was careless during outpatient procedure, ended up being admitted for complications. My questions were not answered, was actually told "don't worry about it". Terrible bedside manner, he was pretty much in the doorway ready to sprint out to a different patient while talking to me.

    Dr. Pastore provides an excellent environment and is clearly focused on figuring out the problem. He is a surgeon with typical surgeon bedside but there is no fooling when you go in for a procedure -- he has all the standing orders and efficiently and expertly does a great job. The only down side is the billing office needs to be more efficient -- I have had a billing issue for over 9 months since the original procedure they don't seem to get it is their issue to correct.
