Surgery was fine and she's a great doctor but, she's spread between 3 hospitals and follow-ups take a back-seat to her busy schedule. On top of that, the staff at the Bayshore Bariatric center can't get anything right. They had to correct my birth-date in the file prior to surgery. Dr. Fresco cancelled my follow-up appt, but the staff scheduling the appt. had entered an incorrect # in the system. Instead of checking my file, they kept calling the wrong #, so I showed up with no appt.

I've been seeing Dr. Fresco now for follow-ups on my yearly Mammograms for a complete Well Care Breast Control. It always makes you feel so good after you receive a good report and also know that you are in good hands with Dr. Fresco. She is the most compassionate, warm and caring Doctor. She listens to what you have to say and your concerns and you never feel rushed. She is the best!!! I recommend her to my family and friends.

If it wasn't for Dr.Fresco I would still be dealing with undiagnosed pain. All of my tests were coming back negative for 7 weeks. No one could figure out what was going on. Dr.Fresco got to the bottom of my pain and discovered an ovarian hernia. I am one week post op and pain free. She is awesome. I felt comfortable with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
