I waited almost an hour after my appointment time to be seen. Once I got in, she didn't even say hello. Her first words were "why are you here?" I explained in detail what I was in for and that I needed a note for my surgeon. The letter was unprofessionally typed with many errors and the note did not state what my surgeon asked for. Very unhappy with this appointment. Will not be coming back for sure.

Before I found Dr. Pantano I had not seen a doctor in 20 some years. Found it necessary to see a doctor and by the luck of the draw got Dr. Pantano. She has been wonderful getting me through some difficult times. I am very comfortable with her and feel she has my best interest in mind.

Was my first time meeting Doctor, she was friendly, professional and listened to my concerns. I felt relieved that she listened to my concerns, allowed me to explain what I was experiencing. I will return to her for future care. I left her office feeling she listened to me, trusted me as sincere.I will return to her for any future care.
