I saw Dr. Garofano after 8 weeks of lung and sinus congestion. She spent an hour with me to rule out all possible causes and said that she could find nothing seriously wrong. She took the time to find out about my work and home environment and concluded that my symptoms could be due to my being surrounded by books and papers. She suggested that I get an air purifier, which I did, and which I placed near my desk. It has helped immensely! Dr. Garofano quelled my anxiety and solved my problem.

I think that she does her best but still not be the best choice for people with chronic lung disease.

Amazing! One of the very best doctors you will ever encounter. Very thorough in history taking, work-up, perceptive, down-to-earth and truly cares about treating and helping patients. Also a special kudos to the young man (don't know his name unfortunately) who performs lung-function tests in her office. Dr. Garofano and her staff are all people for whom medicine is, indeed, a true calling; they love their profession!
