My Dr.JohnDesalvo is the best. He makes me feel so comfortable on all my visits I have been seeing him for over 20 years He delivered my first son. Has great knowledge and answers all my questions I have. Takes the time to make you feel like a person and takes his time explaining the problem and the solution to all my problems. He is very nice and does a great job at delivering babies and much more. The office staff are very helpful and friendly ready to check you in, or make an appointment, or schedule for an up coming event. Thank you ?? Very much Dr. Desalvo for your dedication .??????????

Dr. Desalvo treated me for my first pregnancy at 36. He kept me informed of all tests and conditions of my pregnancy and made sure I received all necessary tests and treatments. I ended up needing a cesarean due to a breached baby, which he performed quickly and efficiently. My recovery has been tremendously easy and my wound has healed exceptionally well.

I have recommended Dr. DeSalvo to all of my family and friends. He is amazing! I trust him more than any of my Doctors and I have many! He delivered my children the oldest of whom is now 23. He will soon be seeing my daughter, because I trust him that much. He is extremely knowledgeable.

He is very good at explaining things that need to be done and is friendly with my 3 year old (who he also delivered) since she comes to visits with me. I am currently 36 Weeks with my second baby. He and his staff have taken very good care of me and my babies.

My hubby& I told the dr that we are first time parents he asked if we had any questions, but as new parents we didn't know what to ask. He explained to us about tests that could be done but stated they did NOT care if we wanted to take the test for my baby or not. I felt like the doctor didn't care very much what happened to me or my baby especially when we found out that my amniotic sac was too small for my baby. He just shrugged it off and I felt like he didn't care as my dr. friendly staff

Very professional. The entire staff was friendly. I have NEVER had a male Gynecologist before. I was as comfortable as one can be when seeing a gynecologist.
