Patient Comments (2)
We waited 6 months to get into the Yale MS Center to see Dr. DeStefano. We were so excited and hopeful because my husband suffers daily with MS. After a 3 hour visit, Dr. DeStefano didn't offer to treat any of his symptoms, and referred him to 5 (yes, five) different doctors for his different symptoms. She was cold, condescending to us and had no concern for my husband as a patient. He was a number to her. We left empty handed, with a laundry list of other doctors to see. Never went back.

I had a great experience with Dr. Destefano, the office staff, and the nurse. She was very thorough, and took the time to go through all my test results with me, explaining what she was looking for, etc. The office staff was also extremely helpful and accommodated all of my requests.
