My husband has been seeing Dr. Caruso for cancer treatment for several months now. Dr. Caruso and her staff are very professional but also very friendly and knowledgeable.
in Forney, TX |
During my first visit with Dr Caruso she was wonderful, explaining every aspect of my condition in great detail and with great kindness Every aspect of Dr Caruso's demeanor made it very clear that she cared about me as a person as well as her patient. I have complete and total confidence in her skills and attention to detail, making what would otherwise be a very scary situation so much easier to deal with. I recommend Dr Caruso to anyone who wants the best in medical care.

I saw Dr Caruso for a second opinion based on the recommendation of a friend, and boy were they were right regarding her very positive manner and interest in me as a person and patient. I've only seen her twice but it is clear that she has my best interests as her first priority, even calling other of my doctors to get information for me. She was on time for both visits but I probably put her a bit behind with all my questions but she didn't make me feel the least bit rushed. Fantastic Doctor!

Dr Caruso was 2 hours late to my appointment with her. She was cold, abrupt and rushed with me. I felt like she was trying to rush through my visit with her because she was late and behind schedule. She treated me like a number and didn't answer my questions. Because she rushed through my examination and didn't care enough to answer my questions I felt like I couldn't trust her and I got treated elsewhere. I couldn't recommend this cold uncaring doctor to any person.

Dr. Michela Caruso is the finest medical professional I have ever had the pleasure to know. She is kind, caring, attentive, thoughtful, patient and unquestionably competent. I was lucky to find her through the referral of a highly respected ENT and in my first visit I told her she reminded me of the good old days when doctors really cared. She even did a Skype consult with me while she was on vacation. I have the utmost respect for and confidence in Dr Caruso and highly recommend her!
