I would recommend this Dr. to anyone who has Myasthenia Gravis. Dr. Piacente is so knowledgeable with medications and over the last year I have improved under his care and recommendations. I am appreciative that he was recommended to me. He is sensitive, caring and kind. He also has an excellent nurse and when I have called the office my questions are answered...... 5 stars to Dr. Piacente and his staff. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
