I think Dr Caruso was one of the best MDS I've had the privilege of having as my doctor. At first I thought he was a bit cold....... but after my second visit I thought he was great! Not to brag, but I've had the best of " the best"....... over 40 major surgeries. Dr Caruso is considered by me and many others to be a perfectionist when treating his patients. He also has a wonderful sense of humor. I can't stres enough how great he is!! You just have to get to know him, he truly is dedicated!!

I saw Dr. Caruso after a major accident. He conducted his exam and concluded there were no signs of injury. He wasn't willing to listen about the amount of pain I experienced and ignored all complaints. I returned to see the regular dr I normally see two days later who was shocked at the damage to my body. I had building discs, swelling, bone bruises and trauma. He walked into the room and was shocked and angered to see me back. He lacks bedside manner, compassion and I question his KSA's.

falsification of documentation noted in previous health grades report. Very nervous, does not listen!! was in pain management and did not respect privacy issues. Embarrassed in presence of several other patients in office about personal issues!
