Specialties

Dr. Miguel A Culasso has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Awesome beside manners.

Dr. Culasso has always been very informative when it comes to the care he provides. His back office staff have always been courteous and I did see his Nurse Practitioner and she had great bedside manners. She referred to Dr. Culasso when needed. I will continue to see Dr. Culasso, has great bedside manners and took care of my medical needs. I will have to say that the young lady in the front can improve on her customer service. She has come across as non caring. I will continue to see him even though the front staff can come across rudely, because he is who I get the best care from. If I ever run into any issue I would be sure he knows or the manager so they can address the issue.

Loco anesthesia!

I have seen Dr. Culasso many times, but the visit I remember most was one when I had a very painful pilonidal cyst that I refused to let him touch. I was terrified and acting crazy and irrational and Dr. Culasso remained calm and understanding and referred me to a surgeon so that I could have general anesthesia (which was 10000x better than the alternative!). I appreciated his understanding in that difficult situation.
