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.
