Patient Comments (1)
in Staten Island, NY |
After my first visit with Dr.Larusso i was more than happy with her work. She took the time to explain every detail and every medication for what she thinks i have. Her nurse in training Alyson, was more than welcoming and friendly! I was extremely impressed when she used an ultrasound to take my blood and she to also explained what she was doing ! I will recommend Dr. Larusso to all my family and friends if they need a rheumatologist !
