What People Say About Dr. Joseph Gattuso Jr, MD
Reply
Dr. Gattuso has been my cardiologist for five years. From day one, this man has shown his exceptional knowledge and HEART. I never felt like "just another patient." When i finally walked into his office after 2 years of taking medication to exist, he examined my overall health and looked beyond standard treatments. I can now happily say that I am feeling more mobile and energetic than i have in years, and have reduced my medications from 17 to ONE MEDICATION.
