Ego interfered with empathy - Missed my Cancer

Went initially to establish a PCP relationship to investigate nipple discharge and breast mass that had been identified previously by Mammogram, ultrasound and MRI. They all came back "likely benign" although each test stated a high margin for error due to the complexity and density of my breast tissue. Dr. Sassano and his incompetent staff were rude as they told me they still could not explain the bloody discharge from my nipple. When I demanded some sort of answer for what was causing this, I was advised I was worrying over nothing; they'd given me "the Cadillac of workups". I demanded further testing so they ordered the ductogram at my request and sent me a certified letter in the mail dismissing me as a patient and giving me 30 days to find another physician. The ductogram suggested a biopsy and within 24 hours after the first appointment with the NEW PHYSICIAN, I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. If I could take Dr Joseph Sassano's license, I would spend my dying breath doing so! Awful, inexcusable, and he should choose another profession! Time was of the essence for me and this surgeon wasted my time and ultimately my life.

Top Notch

I was a walk-in patient twice in the last week. Both times a patient told me, unsolicited, what a wonderful doctor Dr. Sassano was. He is a family doctor who also accepts walk-ins. Dr has a wonderful manner, I never felt rushed. The office is bright and airy and the receptionist is very friendly. I felt immediately that I was actually a "person" and not just a number in a consult room!

Very Long Wait

I brought my daughter into Sarasota Immediate Care because she had a bad sore throat. We got to the office right when it opens at 7:00 am. She was brought back to the exam room at 7:50 and sat there until 9:00 (by this time I had to leave for work or we would walked out). I realize this was a walk in visit however there is no excuse for someone waiting in the exam room for an hour. If it is going to be that long of a wait the staff should really let you know. It is not ok to leave someone who is already feeling bad sitting there for that long.
