Dr. Pizzani is such a caring doctor. He is "old school" in the sense that he chats with you in his office rather than merely in a cold examination room. He is an excellent diagnostician - he accurately diagnosed serious illness in two of my family members. He sees the patient's health from all viewpoints and how one condition or medication can effect other parts of the body.

Dr. Pizzani is a great person, very kind, wonderful bedside manner. His staff is terrific. However, he is getting much too old and is forgetful. I am also suspicious of any doctor who does not use a computer in this day and time. His nurse brings him stacks of folders for each patient when they arrive. This is something I haven't seen since the 1980s! You would be advised to see a younger doctor who is abreast of the latest medical technologies, and who at least knows how to use a computer

He is a top notch doctor and surgeon. He is also my primary doctor. I have recommend him numerous times. He has an excellent bedside manner, he takes is time with his patients and he is very thorough. He has a true passion for his work, and you do don't see that much anymore. He has actually saved my life a couple of times. I would never go to another specialist or primary doctor, so my only prayer and wish is please Dr Pizzani DO NOT retire. I am sure all of your patients feel the same way.
