Dr. Usala is extremely thorough, friendly and professional. I am so glad that my primary referred me to him.

Going to Dr. Usala was one of the best experiences ever. His staff is very friendly and very caring. He is just incredible. His diagnoses were totally on point and his recommendations for a surgeon was totally on point and his follow up to my surgery has been problem free. His caring manner kept me totally at ease through what could have been a very stressful time. I totally recommend him to everyone.

I have been seeing Dr. Usala for 8 years, I recently was admitted into the hospital for having diabetic ketoacidosis. I was in the ICU for 2 days, I contacted his office to let him know & he calls me the next day while I am still in ICU to tell me that it was my fault that I was there! NEVER did he take the time to ask what might have contributed to my diagnosis. I was very disappointed because I had never had any problems like this before and this was the way he responded. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

The administrative staff is always rude to me. I could never understand why, but they made it uncomfortable to continue seeing the doctor. I have switched providers.
