      I had been to many doctors before finally finding Dr Bagnato. He immediately diagnosed and fixed my reflux. The procedure was easy and I was back to work in just a few days. I am so grateful to him I'm sleeping through the night for the first time in years. He is truly a lifesaver. A Happy Nanny

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
