Dr Nascimento is an excellent physician, but his office staff is RUDE, NASTY AND VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. My second visit to the office 2 of the staff members were arguing with each other and the office manager did nothing to diffuse the situation. This doctor needs staff that reflect his personality and his professionalism. He is an amazing doctor, but it's a bad reflection of the office to have to deal with his HORRIBLE office staff.

Dr. Nascimento is very thorough, he listens and puts a plan together to help you feel better.

Staff fit me in to his schedule after my PCP was concerned with recent blood test results. He spent a considerable amount of time in our consultation, reviewing my medical history and answering my questions before the exam. I can't say enough about the professional, courteous office team and the immediate comfort I felt in Dr. Nascimento's care.
