I have been a patient with Dr. Faugno for more then 20 years When I first met him In 1990 I was assisting a lady in her 70’s who had a stroke There were times when even with my help she still refused to get into her wheelchair so I could drive her to Dr Faugno’s office. I would call his office and he always made a house call. I was so impressed with his total concern for his patient The day my own medical insurance had him finally listed as a primary physician I Immediately switched to this wonderful, caring doctor Dr Faugno always puts his patient care above all else and follows up. He expects his staff to do the same and they do. Over all these years I have recommended many people to him and they are always grateful and make a point to thank me Without a doubt I would rate Dr Faugno a 10 on only a 1-5 scale! Diane Jones

Dr. Faugno is very a wonderful doctor! He is very thorough and takes his time with each visit. He has excellent bedside manner and was very helpful when I was dealing with anxiety. Sometimes the wait is a little long but it’s well worth it.

Dr. Faugno is a highly knowledgeable doctor, very pragmatic, thorough and nice. His staff is attentive and courteous. Gives bloodwork painlessly (I used to be deathly afraid of needles). He's one of the few doctors I trust, and gives you time needed. Would highly recommend him. I am a senior citizen, yet his wall is filled with children's photos...all ages welcome!

Dr. Faugno is a very good Dr. He seems very concerned about my ailments and when I ask him about something specific, he always goes into great detail to tell me about it. We have recommended Dr. Faugno to friends of ours and following their visit with him, they say how thorough he is and are happy we recommended him.
