I would definitely recommend Dr. Gargano. Dr Gargano saved my life. My throat had been bothering me for a couple of months and my primary physician at that time dismissed my complaint. I was told it was my dentures. After a couple of weeks , I went back to the office and saw the physician asst. When she looked at my throat, she told me I should go see a specialist. That's when I saw Dr. Gargano and on that first visit, Dr.Gargano took a biopsy and called me in 2 days. I was told I had stage 4 - throat cancer. I couldn't believe the news! Dr. Gargano's staff then took the steps to schedule and to set up all the appointments for the the tests I needed. I was just told when and where I had to go. Thank goodness for the staff because with the shock of the news, my wife and I didn't even know where to begin. The immediate actions of the Dr. and his staff saved my life! I went through weeks of chemotherapy and radiation and I was just told that all my test came back showing no cancer! I thank God everyday and for the actions of Dr. Gargano and his staff because things could have turned out differently. Needless to say I also found a new primary physician!!!

My son was 2 yrs old when Dr Gargano found a cyst in his ear we were just there for his ear infection. He saw something he didnt like and sent us for futher tests.The cholesteatoma was the size of a golf ball growing into his brain. My son is ow 21 and still goes to him. He drives from college out of state to see only him what a wonderful and knowledgeable dr.
