What People Say About Dr. Rodolfo Pigalarga, MD
Reply
Dr Pigalarga needs to go back to school and take a super refresher class on customer service. He ignored my wishes for treatment (because his plan of treatment would make him more money?). Wasted my time and my money and still didn't get my issue resolved. My advice? Don't waste your time.
