Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gargollo "Contact me at pgargollo @ gmail. com (no spaces)! I believe in treating my patients as I would want my own children treated. I have been very blessed to have trained in some of the best institutions in the world and I believe in bringing that knowledge to my practice fo the benefit of my patients. I will never operate or perform a test on your child unless absolutely necessary. In fact I am a minimalist when it comes to invasive tests, antibiotics and surgery. I am always available to you and I promise that your experience will be thoughtful, pleasant, compassionate and (most importantly) knowledgable and skilled. I am so committed to you and your child that I am posting my personal email address here so that you can contact me 365 days a year. Please contact me with any questions or concerns or even if I can help with a second opinion or local referral. I look forward to helping you and your child."
