Patient Comments (5)
in Brooklyn, NY |
He saw my 85 yo mother and diagnosed eczema. However, he sent a script to the pharmacy for scabies, a highly contagious skin condition. He never mentioned this at the appointment. I learned of the scabies only when I returned her to her home (an assisted living facility) and spoke to the nurse there.

Out of all of the doctors I have been to, or taken my children to, Dr. Dispaltro has got to be the worst! He is rude and doesn't know what he is talking about. After listening to him for 3 minutes last time I was ready to walk out and never go back again. I honestly have never been to a worst doctor. He doesn't listen,& makes the wrong diagnosis. If you question the ridiculous things that he says, he's very rude! If you ask questions about medication or treatment he doesn't know the answer!
Los Angeles, CA |
Told there was a limit on the number of issues I could bring up because there are patients waiting. I would have timed the visit if I knew there was a limit, but it must have been less than 5 minutes with the doctor. I did not learn anything new. It was a waste of time.
in Mastic, NY |
Dr Dispaltro was precise and very specific about diagnosis. I was very pleased with the visit and will return as a steady patient.
Deer Park, NY |
Found Doctor Dispaltro pleasant and professional. Answered questions and did a good exam. Will definitely recommend.
