As a patient in this office for more than thirty years, I can only say that the care and concern from all of the staff has been excellent. This particular visit was a follow-up visit, and all of my questions/concerns were addressed. I was also given information to help me to manage what had been the reason for my visit. Dr. Defrancesco and his staff have always been caring and very efficient.

Dr. DeFrancesco is an excellent physician who makes his patient feel comfortable and takes time to address any concerns one may have. Visits are not rushed. The office and clinical staff are all pleasant and easy to work with. I give this practice 5 stars.
