Dr. Pietro made my kidney surgery easy from diagnoses to surgery and recovery.
After calling and hearing it would be a 9 min wait I waited on the phone for 15 mins only to keep being told by the computer generated voice it will be a 9 min wait. After 15 mins it went to an 8 min wait. I gave up. I just wanted to find out if they excepted my insurance and if I could make an appointment. Guess I'll look else were.
