Never recommend a Doctor that doesn't care about his patients. Golf is a good sport but when you have patients you should take care of patients. Do not go.

Never. He has ignored my fathers complaints for over a year. It was t until we requested a referral for a pulmonologist did my fathers complaints get addressed. It was the Pulmonologist he ordered a realest chest X-ray echo and sleep apnea study. The echo should have been done 6 months ago. Dr Fs attitude. And bedside manners where awful as if he was writing my dad off for being 84. He would talk over my dad who he knew was hard of hearing. My father has been dx with R sided heart failure. This is something that should have been picked up before today. Dr Fotgione is not interested in his pt’s well being He is more concerned with his golfing handicap.
