Not a complaint for this Doctor! He's the best! Very professional, thorough, personal and caring. Can't say enough good things about him.

I just cannot identify with any of the negative reviews of this fine man. I have been a patient for at least 15 years and have NEVER EVER been disappointed. He gives you his full attention and is very thorough. I feel very lucky to have him as my primary physician. Without exaggeration he has SAVED my life !

 |  1 BAD DOCTOR  |  show details
Nov 20th, 2013

He missed a major health issue even after many of my complaints. I left and found a new Dr. When I met Dr Cimato I thought he was nice. In time I heard the way he talked to people. I also heard him swearing and yelling at patients. He uses the F word often. He has a temper and flys off the handle. Hes just a bad Doctor. Its all about him and being right, money and his pride. I have seen it over and over through the years. I left and found a new Doctor. I know Buffalo Medical Group has many issues with him because of his attitude. One day he will mouth off to the wrong person and I hope they knock the chip off his shoulder.

when he's in a bad mood he yells and screams and says the F word at you. I thought it was only me and that maybe he didn't like me. It wasn't just me. I heard him do it to 2 other people in the 6 appointments I had with him. You know refuses to see me because I left his office after an hour and a half way. I had another doctors appointment and I had to go. Upon explaining this to haim he told me to go F myself and find a new doctor. Also he said if I bother with him again he will take me to court for harassment and press charges. This man is the most on professional Dr I have ever heard of in my life. His staff does not like him. Most of Buffalo Medical Group talks behind his back because he is such a jerk. I would find a new doctor and not see this guy if I were you.

 |  FIND ANOTHER DR!!!!!!!!  |  show details
by Disgruntled in Kenmore on May 24th, 2013

I would not recommend this Dr to my worst enemy. He is rude and ignorant and thinks he has the right to say whatever he wants. Very Unprofessional. No one needs to go to a Dr appt and be treated in such a manner that they leave the office upset not because of a diagnosis but because of the way they are talked to and treated behind closed doors. I read the reviews from people that are saying he is wonderful and kind, they cannot be talking about the same dr. If so, that is testimony to just how off kilter this dr is with his attitude and mood swings. Do yourself a favor and FIND A DIFFERENT DR!

Great doctor and not only is he attentive, but he never makes you feel rushed or insignificant. One of THE BEST doctors I have ever seen for any diagnosis or treatment.

Unfortunately, when I first began treating with Dr. Cimato, it was when he first began his practice. Now that he has more patients, the general response from his office is that there are no openings available for a few days from my call and they absolutely provide no assistance anymore. The level of caring, compassion, and concern has left his practice.

I wouldn't go to any other doctor if my life depended on it. Very sincere, honest, tells you like it is, compassionate,and besides Dr. Cimato is a RIOT.

He cares what I have to say and I never feel rushed. All my concerns are met and answered. I love him and always get return calls from him or his office when needed. He has never let me down or made me feel like I was taking up his time. He is our family doctor.

He has been my physician since about 2003 and I am very satisfied with his bedside manner,his caring attitude and even his slight sarcasm. One thing I have to say is he cares about his patients. My whole family goes to him now!

I was referred to Dr. Cimato after experiencing a slight stroke. (I was only 36 at the time) He got my blood pressure down with meds and at that time I didnt think he took me to seriously as he said I probably just had a migrine. (hospital cat scan verified had slight stroke) I then was in a bad accident 2 1/2 years ago when a lady rear ended me going full force talking away on her cell phone. This has left me in constant pain. NO MRI's have been ordered to this date and I am FINALLY going to go to a specialist who hopefully will get to the bottom of my pain. IT TOOK 2 1/2 YEARS to get this referral. Then to add insult to injury, my Lawyer has been trying to get him to sign an Affidavit (spelling?) for about 3 months now and he flatly refuses. All I need him to say is that his medical records are correct. My lawyer said that he never saw anything like this before. He will not call him back, I have let several messages for him to call me and he will not. I am going elsewhere!!
