in Williamsville, NY |
I would give Dr Gambacorta zero stars due to his extremely COCKY attitude during a phone conversation regarding my questioning of his treatment of a my teenager's injury in a track and field mishap. He is incompetent, because he did not see a fracture on an xray from a ER visit at Millard Suburban. It wasnt until I asked for an MRI, that he could see a fracture. All the while he gave my daughter incorrect treatment for 3 months. Please don't be fooled by this narcissistic!!!

Dr Gambacorta was very kind, professional and knowledgable. I got an appt within 24 hrs, got the MRIs sent to him in an hr. They have walkins at 4pm on Transit Rd. Other offices told me they didnt have anything for 2 weeks. His staff was very very kind and got me in. Turned out the fractured pelvis was not visible on the MASH xray. I am really thankful that Dr. Gambacorta's team made so much effort!
