I very highly recommend Dr. Rampazzo. He Is both an expert and a doctor who really listens, very caring and very knowledgeable. He meets the patient where they are. He is not rushed but is calm and kind and works to problem solve issues in the patient's particular best interests. (He does not approach the patient with a cookie cutter formulaic response.)
