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.
