Great gastroenterologist and good person

Long delays to obtain an appointment and long waits upon arrival; however these delays are likely due to the demand for Dr. Ottaviano's excellent services. He is up to date on medical developments in his field, spends high quality one-on-one communication with each patient and is a likable, competent physician. He is worth the wait! Also he performs almost painless endoscopies and colonoscopies and provides thorough feedback including photos. His main assistant, Robin, keeps the office running efficiently and with a sense of humor. Another appropriately- named assistant , Fun, is actually fun and she is competent.
