I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate Dr. Fusco. He exemplifies what a doctor should be. He spoke to me without talking down or making me feel stupid. He was kind and explained everything very clearly and what will happen next. Thank you!!

I was impressed! I had low expectations because most doctors I've seen don't listen, and rush me. *Fusco not only listened but also took the time to review & explain things that NONE of my other doctors did. He was also willing to work with me on treatment. I was very happy. He showed me good doctors DO EXIST!
