What People Say About Dr. Santo Difino, MD

I missed 2 appointments with Dr. Difino as my father was in ICU. After 9 years as a cancer patient, Difino had staff send a letter stating he will no longer treat me. Ethical? How much money is enough money?

I have been going to Dr. DiFino for approximately 20 years for a blood disorder for which there is no cure at this time. At his recommendation, I am getting a specific treatment that has been a great help to ne in my illness. He is the most dedicated and caring doctor I have ever met. He answers all my questions truthfully and thoroughly, without rushing through the appointment. I trust him completely and always recommend him to anyone who needs a blood or cancer specialist.
