What People Say About Dr. Damian Pestana, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The wait time in his office was over 90 minutes. He was more than 2 hours late for my hospital procedure. I overheard nurses asking each other where he was, and apparently no one could contact him. He showed up late with no explanation. It was NOT another medical emergency. His office rescheduled my follow-up appointment for over 2 months, then I had to wait over an hour at the appointment. This is the worst possible care you could imagine. Do NOT use this doctor. See a true professional.
