Patient Comments (1)
Staten Island, NY |
Dr. Fazio has been my gastroenterologist for about 6 yrs. now. He is very understanding when it comes to insurance companies & will try to work with you. He will also try to give you free samples with a new prescription to see if it helps before you have to pay for them. The only down side is the waiting time. On the other hand, I'd rather wait because I know when it's my turn I will get the same courtesy as the patients before me did, Quality time with his patients!!
