If I could give him 10 stars then that would be a start. Dr. Pugliese is a kind, caring, and patient physician. He is always well informed and up to date on procedures/treatments/options and makes you feel like you are his only patient of the day. I (We) never felt rushed and his knowledge and skill instilled absolute trust. He answered all of our questions and concerns perfectly and gave us options which is so important. His communication and bedside manner is excellent. He's the best!!

Compassionate, gives you alternatives and options to help through out treatments. I would chose Dr Pugliese again.
Would give him 10 stars if possible. Although he was a little late, he apologized several times and did not rush through the appointment like so many providers do. He was very thorough and provided me with options. He went above and beyond by scheduling my biopsy to ensure that it was done in a timely manner.
