What People Say About Dr. Maria Gioia, DO

Very thorough and personable. It is a pleasure to have Dr. Gioia as my family physician. Both for my kids and me she listens well and shares her knowledge clearly and thoroughly. She also follows up quickly on referrals and looks at health issues holistically. She does not push medications like other doctors do.

You would be hard- pressed to find a doctor better than Dr. Gioia. She is extremely knowledgeable in multiple fields, listens to her patients, and involves them in their own health process.She personally has called me past 7 pm on her own time to follow up with tests that were heavy on my heart and mind.When I had two doctors that wouldn't even talk to each other when 30 weeks pregnant, Dr. Gioia took the reigns. They don't make many doctors like her.If you want a top doctor she is your choice.

After reading the tremendously positive reviews on Dr. Gioia I made my decision to set up an appointment in hopes of finding a new primary care doctor. All of the reviews were right on!! I was extremely impressed with everything about my visit from the moment I stepped into the door of the practice!!

Absolutely fantastic in every way (including all the staff members). Attentive, empathetic, dedicated to holistic treatment, and a great diagnostician. I have a chronic illness, and therefore see multiple doctors regularly, so I know I great doc when I meet one. Dr. Balestrino and her entire staff treated me like a person and not just a patient. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Dr. Balestrino took the time to talk with me and not with her hand on the door knob. She seemed genuinely interested in learning about my medical history and how I was feeling.

I will recommend Dr. Balestrino to family and friends. This is the first doctor that actually listens to you, and develops a medical plan of action based on your conversations.

I just switched to Dr. Balestrino. I had my first visit with her and I had a few questions. She was very easy to talk to. She really listened to my concerns and had great recommendations and ideas.

She talked to me about everything and she didnt care that my kids were being crazy. She also addressed all my problems and talked to me about when we would follow up and what we would follow up about.

I had an acute situation, and I was able to schedule an appointment the same day. All of my paperwork had been done at my last in network doctors' appointment, so even though it was the first time seeing Dr. Balestrino at this office, I had no paperwork to complete! It was a short wait in the waiting room and the exam room. Dr. Balestrino listened patiently to me, thoroughly explained my situation, and my options. She made sure I understood everything. I highly recommend Dr. Balestrino.
