medical assistants are usually unfriendly and show little compassion. I have been a patient at EMH for >20 years and can see a decline in the service that I receive. I keep going there because of convenience however could probably get better service elsewhere ...

Dr Pavone is a highly skilled reconstructive plastic surgeon. He has a great bedside manner. It's obvious he cares about his patients and wants the best for them. He's very knowledgeable and answers patients questions in a way that's easy to understand. I think very highly of Dr Pavone. I'm so glad he's my plastic surgeon.

I travel over an hour to EE to see Dr. Lucio Pavone, my oncology plastic & reconstruction surgeon. There are other doctors I can see much closer to home but I wouldn't see anyone but Dr. Lucio Pavone. He is a brilliant, talented, kind and caring doctor. I am thankful to have him on my team.

Overall the doctor was good. However, the supporting staff including the person to schedule the surgery didn't call me back even after i left several messages. Both times, she responded only when i would send email through mychart. that was frustrating. I lost out on a month for the surgery due to this hold up. Before that the person checking my insurance took a long time (4 months) to let me know of what happened with the insurance company. i left messages but only after sending the email did i get the call back. She explained what happened and i understand her situation. I still never got an explanation for why the surgery scheduler never called me back.
