Dr. Formica is the epitome of what a doctor should be. Attentiveness, knowledge, and a genuine interest in his patients care are just a few of the inherent qualities of Dr. Formica. He's a true advocate of his patients health and well being. It takes a lot to make an impression on me, especially when it comes to medical professionals... However, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Formica. Not only did he make an impression, but he exceeds my expectations continuously. World class doctor!
