    Dr Caruso and his team have gone well above and beyond to make my first pregnancy a joy and breeze. With many ultrasounds first trimester and returning phone calls even if it means from his personal number after hrs he has won over my boyfriend and I for best Dr. They called on a Saturday to give us our gender blood results because I shared I wanted to surprise my man with the results. Also, he will do check up calls after hrs even if you have questions or concerns or anything is wrong. Best OB!

    Best OBGYN and surgeon ever! Love Dr Curuso. Very kind and knowledgeable. Fantastic surgeon!! If you have a c section go to no one but Dr Curuso. I saw a different Dr for my first born and there was a world of difference in the healing, bleeding, scarring, and pain. Sooo much better and easier with Dr Curuso and he fixed the awful scar I had from before. Amazing. He takes time to answer questions and follow up with phone questions.

    I was prescribed medicine that was intended for me from Dr. Peter Caruso. He did not review my medical records that contained important test results before recommending surgery for me. I had a difficult time making any kind of progress at his office because they are not organized. I have been working with them for close to two months and tried my best to move the process forward, but was unable to. I will be pursuing care elsewhere and I recommend that you do the same.
