Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Romano "I am a board certified Urologist. Both my mother and father were doctors. My mother's practice was located in the first two rooms of our house. One room was the waiting room the other was the exam room. I choose to become a doctor because I wanted to help people as well. Also I liked the science behind medicine. My specialty is both surgical and medical consisting of a lot of high technology applied to Urology. I believe what sets my practice apart is that it is patient center. The patient is always right."

Patient Comments (1)

He is horrible. I had one visit with him. He did no exam and decided I needed surgery. After the surgery, he said i didn't need the surgery and called me a drug addict. A few days laterI went to Labcorp and paid out of my pocket for a drug screen. Clean across the board. He is evil. STAY AWAY...more
