Dr. Lovato is excellent! I had a cyst on my thigh that increased in size very quickly, then became infected. I schedule an appointment with Dr. Lovato who said it needed to be removed immediately. He worked me into his already full schedule that week and removed the cyst. Everything went smoothly. Also, all the staff at St. Anthony's were excellent, too.
