A patient patient will get first-class medical care show details A patient patient will get first-class medical care

I have been a patient of Dr. Caruso's for about 15 years and as long as he practices on this side of the equator I will probably stay with him. Medicine has changed dramatically since I first met Dr. Caruso in his East Meadow office. Physicians are under a great deal of stress and health care seems to change by the hour but Dr. Caruso has remainded a constant. I have never seen him in a huff, he seems to have all the time in the world to listen, and he respects a patient's right to make choices in his or her own enlightened self-interest. His lay back bedside manner does not mask an agile mind, a treasure trough of common sense, and consummate knowledge of medicine relative to many different specialties. He's the real deal. As a disclaimer, the relatively low grade I gave Dr. Caruso for ease of appointment is not a reflection on him; it is simply the result of being involved in a large succesful practice. Island Medical is like many other offices with a large patient load and doctors who should be wearing jogging suits and Reeboks to jog from examination room to examination room. The office is a bee-hive of activity and the staff does a remarkably good job moving things along given the number of people that come through the door each day. With respect to Dr. Caruso's "follow-up's, in my case there generally is no need for one after a visit since he addresses whatever issue brought me to him during a visit and answers all questions that I toss at him. For those who pine for the days of house calls and physicians who get you in and out in 15 minutes, I might remind them of Jack Nicholsen's remark in a crowded doctor's office "What if this is as good as it gets?" Dr. Caruso and Island Medical may very well be as good as its going to get given the likelihood of seismic changes in the way health care is and will be delivered.

Great Doctor!: I have been going to Dr. Caruso for a few years now and I don't have any complaints. He listens, pays attention and often corrects the mistakes other doctor's might have made. I highly reccomend him.
