Patient Comments (4)
Staten Island, NY |
Dr. Dimaso is a fantastic doctor. He is caring, compassionate, patient and kind especially to my elderly parents. Calls are returned promptly and he is a prominent presence in the hospital when my mom was recently admitted for two weeks. I would recommend him highly. The office is easy to get to, staff is friendly and he listens to my concerns and takes the time to explain everything to me. The staff goes out of their way to help make my caring for my parents easier.
Dr. DiMaso has the best "bedside manner" of any doctor I've seen. He is so caring, compassionate and takes time to explain everything. His level of care is exemplary!! I'm lucky to have him as my primary.

A good doctor but has too many patients to follow up on each one. You have to remind him of facts he should recall about your health history.

Dr Dimaso is courteous, has a warmth about him.. He does not sugarcoat - he is thorough... His mannerism is welcome - coming from a patient and friend. I am only too happy to have found a doctor like Dr. Dimaso considering the climate of the medical field today. His office staff is accommodating and smiling - which is what a patient wants, when walking into a medical office. Overall, I wouldn't trade Dr. Dimaso for any other. Thank you for being you.
