Patient Comments (1)
After seeing him for 4 yrs I've moved on to someone else who has compassion, concern and excellent knowledge of my type of cancer. Wait time to see Tuscano can be up to 3 hrs from appt time. In 4 yrs I was seen twice within 30 min of my appt time. New doc I'm seen within 10 min. My time is valuable too!
