Needham Heights, MA |
My wife visited Dr. Pettinato for chronic migraines and asked what to do before / during pregnancy. Pettinato was rude, arrogant, and made us feel stupid for asking questions. He did not provide any solutions for migraines, just said that she should suffer through them during pregnancy and "take tylenol". Every other question we had, he gave one-word answers, most of which were "no". For a "specialist" in migraines, this advice is not only disappointingly inadequate, it's also condescending

I drove 3 hours to get to this famous headache clinic. I get daily migraines. He suggested I take more B2 and told me to come back in 3 months. I said will that help, he said probably not. I said so I will have daily migraines until I see you again in 3 months. He said probably.

Refuses to see patients if 9 minutes late. His schedule is booked for months at a time.
in Northborough, MA |
If you are not interested in Botox, or simply interested in other options, avoid. He pushes Botox unlike any medical professional I have ever encountered. Refuses to consider other options (because they aren't as good as Botox).
in Boston, MA |
Limited ability to deal with co-morbid conditions. Also, he displayed little to no empathy for debilitating health conditions. While he made one new treatment recommendation he said I had pretty much exhausted all treatment options and needed to accept that I may not get any better.
