Dr. Valente is the best provider I have ever worked with. Her advocacy for the patient is unlike most, and it is so refreshing. She truly cares about her patients and has helped me time and time again with decisions or care that were actually outside of her lane (because I was having trouble getting ahold of my other doctors and was panicking). She is warm, kind and understanding. I am so blessed to have her looking out for me.
