Dr. DeStefano was my doctor during a recent stay in the hospital. I was impressed with her level of medical knowledge, professionalism & compassion. She went the extra mile to make sure my health care needs were met. Being in the hospital for the first time is very scary. Dr. Destefano took time to explain things to me so I could make changes in my life to prevent future hospital visits. Thank goodness for Doctor’s like Dr. D.

I was sent to the emergency room and admitted for breathing issues. Dr. DeStefano was my attending physician while in hospital. She was amazing. She was knowledgeable, showed genuine concern and bedside manner that alot of healthcare personnel just lack these days. She even gave me a recommendation for a Dr. for my follow up care.
