Kind, caring. Practices medicines for the benefit of the patient and not necessarily just based on what a patient asks for. Always sees his patients when he's in the office.

Get a different doctor, fast

Dispenza repeated identical tests 3x, unwilling to share test results, repeatedly told "take asprin and come back in 3 weeks", when asked for a referral to a specialist was told didn't need one, had to insist to get test results, wasted 3 months in pain , finally finding a spine doctor. Hard to believe he's still practicing.

Sucks

Was diagnosed with gynocomastia and that was it. Said that was all he could do. Told him my breast was very sore and it hurt to touch, his response "I don't know what else to tell you other than try not to touch it." Wanted to physically hurt him at this point. Anyways, I did my own research and called back asking him to research Nolvadex as a cure he refused to and the next day I got a letter in the mail discarging me as his patient and to find another physician. Nothing but an old washed up dr looking to make a quick buck off of you.
