I had been diagnosed with Ménière's disease. A friend of mine with that disease told me, based on my symptoms, that she thought i didn't have the disease and suggested I see her ENT doctor. So i went to see her and had almost a days worth of tests. At the end of this she told me my problems were most likely with migraine headaches. I had a history of migraines but hadn't had the symptoms i was now experiencing. A friend recommended D.r. Petito highly. We spoke first on the phone and he then set up an appointment. The most thorough appointment ever with a doctor in his field. He could not have been more friendly, humble, gracious or caring and at the end of two hours diagnosed me with a rare form of migraine called "vestibular migraine." He has been treating me ever since. He is so generous with his time, always available to me when I need him for an issue or discussion of an Rx and to me is as good a doctor as one could hope for & tops in his field. Simply the best.

One of those rare specialists who make ailments bearable! Dr. Petito has a unique gift for diagnosing neurological and secondary disorders, for thoroughly exploring every clinical possibility of treatment, and for having a wonderful, patient-friendly personality. He has been my doctor for many years, and I feel blessed to have had him recommended to me during a rare and difficult disease. I have always recommended him to those with neurological issues. He's the best!

A disaster. Doesn't return calls. Unreachable. Smug and entitled. Stay away from.

Over 16 years ago I first saw Dr Petito. I had been searching for a diagnosis to my neurological symtoms already for 4 years.. He asked tons of questions, did the battery of usual physical exams, yet he was kind, patient, and listeneed to everything I said. After week in the hospital with steroids and more tests, he give me my diagnoses... Since then I have seen him regularly as he monitors my life with my diseases. He cheers me on and allows me to co-manage my health. He is the BEST!
