I have been a patient of Dr. Caruso for 15 years. His bedside manner has always been comforting and professional. I have always trusted his choices of treatment. He sees his patient as an integral part of the treatment team. His new team associated with NSHOA is exemplary. There is a young lady there, Shannon who was so kind and comforting when I was given the news that the breast cancer I had 14 years ago had now matastised. She helped me see the forest through the trees when I was so emotionally weakened. It's a great place for treatment when you have to rely on a doctor and his team for the rest of your life.
