in Uniontown, OH |
Dr. Ciuffo went out of his way to help me with a long-standing problem with a broken rib. He was willing to look at a CT scan and give advice over the phone. I couldn't believe that a very prominent surgeon was willing to look at a test result and give advice over the phone.
in Paso Robles, CA |
The valve replacement surgery I had was a failure. I had 2 valves replaced in 2012, and both started going bad after 3 years. The specialists here are puzzled as to why I used Ciuffo. Forget all the ease of appointment nonsense. If you end up with a bad job, everything is a 1 star performance.
