      Dr. Caruso himself is excellent. He's a knowledge urologist who is thorough and dedicated. I would highly recommend him. However, his office staff is mostly incompetent and consistently fail to give him messages. There is no follow up or communication with the doctor on lab results and if you don't self advocate constantly you will fall through the cracks. Simple UTI results can take a week to 10 days to finally get a script because no one follows up with the Doctor.
