Dr Macaluso was rude to me during my appointment. Made no attempt of actually hearing what I had to say. He would tell me one thing and then when he read past results he flip flopped his stance. Was not impressed and that shocked me because I had heard rave reviews of him prior to my appointment.

I have been a patient of Dr. Macaluso for years, on and off. Just recently had to see him again for issues I've experienced since childhood. He is still simply the best!

**Scuba knowledge** I went to see Dr. Macaluso because I didn't equalize properly and was concerned about damage to my ear. Thankfully, Dr. Macaluso used to dive and he completely understood my situation. He was very helpful and gave me the a-ok to dive again!
