I waited one and one half hours in his overly crowded waiting room until my patience ran out and left. I had 3 very costly tests done and my heart is fine. according to one of his nurses, he doubles and triple books patients. In my opinion greed has taken over here. Look elsewhere, find a doctor that cares about you and not just the money that can be made from you. I will never go back.

Dr. Vitarello and his staff were nothing short of amazing. Coming from out of town, they pushed schedules around for testing and procedures to accommodate my compressed schedule. I was seen and tests and procedure at Johns Hopkins done within 3 days.. Everyone was so incredibly nice and helpful it was clear I made the right decision in coming up from Corpus Christi Texas for treatment and I feel lucky to have been seen in by Dr. Vitarello and helped by his staff. Thank YOU ALL!!!!

Met him once, thought he was phony, over-reassuring. Wanted me to do three very expensive tests, changed up my beta-blocker, & Rx'd a med I didn't need. All of this before seeing any of my bloodwork or previous records. I didn't trust him.
