Horrible!! Could barely schedule an appointment. The assistant said going over my insurance on the phone was too much work right now. Then spoke in Spanish to someone while I was on the phone and put me on hold for 15 mins! Stay away!

In the past I was told.. I'm lazy, don't apply myself, am clumsy etc... BUT THEN HOPE SUDDENLY FILLED MY HEART as God blessed me with Dr. Scarpa, who is very wise, and was compassionate and thorough in his assessment/eval as he told me CLEARLY it was NOT me going crazy..but something called Fibromyalgia. I'm VERY thankful for Dr. Scarpa, esp. for his catching this early on to start treatment sooner. I feel SO LIBERATED to finally know the cause of my cond. & I VERY HIGHLY recommend Dr. Scarpa.
