I brought my three children to Dr. Joe 30 years ago! I LOVED him then, and if I had any grandchildren, I would be thrilled if they went to Dr. Desiatos practice today. He was humble, very tuned in, listened intently and trusted my instincts as a mother. I looked forward to my kids' appointments...more

He's great! He takes time to see and know you baby from the moment he's born. He really knows what he's talking about, very straight foward and explicit, and lets you everything thats going on with your baby and whether you should worry or not.
