Dr Runfola is probably the most caring doctor that I have ever had. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Aug 2011, he sat with me and explain everything that was going to happen. When I had surgery he was very kind to my family waiting for me. And as I continued my care over the next 5 years seeing him twice a year, he continued to have the same warm caring demeanor. You truly feel like an important and loved person with him. His staff is great too.

Dr. Runfola is a kind and compassionate man. He does his best to set you at ease but is honest as well. He communicates well with other doctors that are part of your care. I appreciate his kindness and trust him completely.
