What People Say About Dr. Michael Privitera, MD
Reply
Dr. Privitera is exceptional. He is an excellent listener and is able to think outside of the box when needed. He explains everything with clarity and patience, and offers as much time as is needed to reach a thorough understanding and come up with a plan. Additionally, he is immediately responsive to needs that come up between appointment. Additionally, he is a research doctor so is able to brainstorm solutions to unconventional problems. I cannot rate him highly enough!
