One Star

While employed as Interfaith Chaplain at St. Vincent Medical Centers, NY,I' had been treated by Dr. Salvatore Carauana from 1997-2004, Chief of then Head/Neck at St. Vincent Medical Center, West. 11th Street. In 2004, all chaplains except two priests, had to leave because the hospital had been almost bankrupt at that time. I had visited Dr. Carauana at NY Prespoterian Hospital for a short period after that. He had successfully treated my sinus condition. He concluded that my difficulties were being caused by a post-nasal drip. He directed me to begin doing daily sinus rinses. By doing so , I haven't needed to visit a medical person since.

Excellent bedside matters and puts you at ease.

He is one of the few doctors that actually takes the time to speak with you and answer all your questions. Excellent bedside matters and his staff is willing to fit you in if you have an emergency if you are one of his cancer patients.

It's impossible to get a call back. I have been waiting over two weeks for a call back on an Appt that they are making. Hard to get someone on the phone, everything is I will relay the message...HORRIBLE ATTENTION to their patients.

Overbooked.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Caruana and waited a month to meet with him. I had to leave his office after 1 hour of waiting. They are heavily overbooked. Make sure you have plenty of time or just find find another Dr.
