Dr. Gargano has been my families ENT for 21 years. During that time myself and my family have received compassionate and outstanding medical care from this excellent doctor. Would highly recommend him to anyone with an ENT matter.

The first time I met Dr. Gargano I felt an instant concetion. He calmly & softly explained my condition to me & told me exactly what procedure he was going to perform. It's very hard to find doctors that you like & trust, I put my trust in Dr. Gargano Nancy Prianti

Always answers all of my questions and I never feel like he is trying to rush through appointment. Recently had surgery and he carefully explained procedure and alternatives.
