Dr. DeSanto helped me delivered my first child and I plan on using him for my second child as well. He is very knowledgeable, professional, approachable and very thorough. He appears quite but he really is a kind Doctor and caring which you don't mind a lot.

I had a large ovarian cyst for a long time and was trying to ignore it, hoping it would go away. Dr. DeSanto was patiently persistent in getting me to go through with surgery, as leaving the cyst intact was dangerous. I had surgery yesterday and am relieved! I was in and out, only 3 small incisions, and the pain is minimal. I appreciate the fact that Dr. DeSanto is not only a highly skilled surgeon, he shows compassion and concern for his patients. I highly recommend him.

He is soft spoken and calming, which was a huge help to me as a first time mother. He thoroughly went over everything with me so I always was clear on what was going on. He never made me feel crazy for asking silly questions. I never felt rushed during visits. He was great when it was time to deliver my daughter, again talking me through everything and was very gentile. He called afterwards to check on me and later gave me advice during my 6 week post-delivery visit when my daughter had colic.
