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...more

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.
