Dr. Denise Letteriello has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Letteriello has been my PCP for a few years. When I had my daughter and found out that she would take her as a patient I was thrilled. I didn't have many interactions with Dr. Letteriello before having my daughter (as I am relatively healthy) I thought it would be fine to bring my daughter there. However, each time I brought my newborn and then infant daughter to see her for well visits she rushed me out the door not even really allowing me to ask questions. I did not feel like she took me seriously when my daughter was sick and subsequently changed doctors. My last visit there was when they told me to give my 10 month old daughter over the counter cough medicine because she had a cold. I found a new pediatrician who diagnosed her with a severe sinus infection, gave her amoxicillin and she was immediately better within days. I would never recommend her to anyone with children. That being said, Dr. Letteriello's nurse, Mary is phenomenal and it's unfortunate that the doctor's nurse gives better care and attention than she does.

Shes great

A dr, who remembers your name, your conditions, your family. Came to see me in hospital w/other physician, unrelated to her care. Amazing! Can't say enough good things about her. Have been going there for several years.

Amazing physician!

Dr. Letteriello has been my primary care physician, as well as my daughter's, for many years. What a wonderful, caring doctor! She has known what was wrong with me when several specialists didn't. Her diagnoses are always spot on. I love the way she will sit and listen for as long as needed when I share my medical concerns with me. Yes, it's true that one may wait for 6 months to get a physical. However I always book them for the following year the day I have my annual one. When sick, she sees me the same day. I highly recommend her.

Great doctor

Sometimes difficult in getting appointments but I have never had a long wait once I arrived for an appointment. Dr. Letteriello listens extremely well and has always diagnosed every problem correctly. She has a great bedside manner. Originally had her for my kids and after I witnessed how great she was I switched her to my primary doctor. My wife and kids all utilize her services now.

Room for improvement

I have rarely met a physician as caring as Dr. Letteriello (and I am crazy about Mary, the PA). It is wonderful to get follow-up phone calls from the office after a visit. I am very reluctant to say anything negative about Dr. L because I just LIKE her so much, but my daughter diagnosed two of her own chronic conditions, which blood tests affirmed. I was also steered down a wrong street, but that may have been a deliberate action on Dr. L's part to get me to take care of some business that needed taking care of.On the other hand, the office staff is marginal at best. It seems there is a bit of turnover, but whoever staffs the reception desk needs some SERIOUS re-training. The staff who takes the co-pay is fine. I hate to call, because I am ALWAYS put on hold for at least 10 minutes and the office NEVER seems to be open on time in the morning. They SAY 8:30, but it is really more like 9:15. Very frustrating.
