Seen in timely manner as scheduled. Diagnosis was determined as a virus and not a bacteria infection. The child body was to take it course to heal. Strep test was negative. Other matters was determined. I highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. DeFeo is very professional and tentative to the needs and concerns of his patients and their parents. He makes the time to explain the circumstances and options available. We have four children and have been with Dr. DeFeo for over 12 years. We feel very secure in his care.
