During my first visit with him i went into his office and he stood up and shook my hand and introduced himself. Very few doctors do this today. He is a great listener and is not a fan of over prescribing medicine, which is so prevalent today within the industry. As a patient of Restifo, you can easily tell that he loves his work and excels at being a doctor, i never feel rushed and enjoy listening to his explanations.

Absolutely a pleasure to have a good doctor that is truly concerned and will take the time to hear you through and clearly explain to you before jumping to a conclusion writing a prescription as many do today. It is great being back to using a knowledgable, caring doctor like him in this area. Definitely noticed the difference using others for the past five years while out of this area.
