      Dr Michael Favorito took over for Dr Whiteside a few years ago and handed me off with all my diabetic problems and Dr Fav has sure been a godsend with my Type 1 difficulties. I can't thank him enough for the time, patience, new technologies etc. I'm adult onset type 1 so

      First visit and he spent a long time explaining my diagnosis and recommending treatment. He also reviewed my complete history going back to 1998. He was very thorough and very patient. His office nurse Jen, replied to a concern I placed on the patient portal very quickly. This was before the first visit. I am extremely pleased with his caring and knowledge about my diagnosis. I was very impressed!

      I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE DR. FAVORITO!!!!! His nurses are less to be desired at times and it may be they have a lot on their plate and if that is the problem they need to hire more. I have been going to this practice for over 12 years and will go nowhere else unless I move so far away! ALL the doctors here are wonderful. If you need an endo pick one of many, I am sure you will be happy ??

      Dr Favorito is very personable, friendly and thorough. I never feel rushed during an appointment and he takes time to answer my questions and discuss options and treatments.

      Nice MD but awful nursing staff that call you back to provide information. Uneducated staff providing potentially deadly misinformation.

      Dr. Favorito is a nice doctor, but it takes you forever to get your lab results. Two or more weeks is to long to have to wait to hear back from the nurse. I don't think their patients are their number one concern like they should be or maybe they just have to many and can't keep up.

      I've been waiting for over two weeks for blood test results for a final diagnosis. I've left numerous messages and have never been able to speak to a live person. He was a nice guy, but the office is very poorly run!
