Patient Comments (5)

She was very professional and quickly diagnosed me with the correct issue (I thought I had extremely painful hemorrhoids which turned out to be a gland infection which turned into a painful abscess). She treated me then and there after explaining the procedure, sent me home with clear directions...more

I would not recommend her at all. In my opinion, she is abrupt, rude, + aloof. Seems to lack compassion + empathy.

I waited more than 30 minutes to discover Dr. Sgambati’s bedside manner is terrible. For the type of medicine she practices, compassion and gentleness are paramount. She did not talk me through what she was doing, she was abrupt and rushed, and she didn’t care when I indicated she was hurting me....more
