Thank God for Dr. Passaro! Yes, if you read anything negative about the wait- it’s true. However, being in the room with him, while he answers and addresses every concern is not what you usually get with any doctor. He is compassionate and experienced. We travel from Sarasota to see him in St. Pete because we have faith in his knowledge of treating our newly diagnosed 19 yr old son with epilepsy. He truly cares about our son, and so far- the only doctor we are confident about. While my son is up at college, it was necessary for him to refer a neurologist in the same town, and he checked out this doctor personally, to make sure it was the right fit. Dr. Passaro will take his time with you and he listens. Running late because he gives all of his patients the time that you too will want, is just how it goes.

I'm sure that Dr. Passaro is excellent in his specialties. He does not, however, evoke customer satisfaction when his wait times are anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours+. I went for my 2nd appointment today and asked how long the wait would be because the wait for my first appointment was over 1 hour. The staff eventually told me the wait would be 1.5-2 hours. So, I asked if I could call ahead next time and they said "No, he wants his patients to show up on time and wait." Unacceptable!

I hate going here. My first appointment took 4 hours in the waiting room. Sitting that long is bad for my health. I left there discouraged and knew it would not do a thing to improve my hand only made my back worse. s a waste. The second time was just as bad. Than they billled me instead of Medicaid. sitting for 4 to 5 hours. no dr is worth that stupid wait. . he puts me on expensive vitamin d which my insurance did not cover and another dr told me not to take that much I did not need it

I've been seeing Dr. Passaro for 14 years and have been very happy with him. I've never felt rushed through his office. Instead, I feel like my concerns are truly heard and I'm given as much information as I need to make a decision that's in the best interest of my health. That being said, if short wait times are important, this is not the place for you. He spends as much time with you as you need but because of that, very often runs behind schedule. My positive experience has made it worth it.

The PA's are cold and stoic-appointments run late and you rarely see the doctor.
