Dr. William E Pullano has the following 2 specialties
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Pullano gets 5 stars for his intellect - he is certainly the best in his field that I have seen. I also applaud his interest in solving problems you may have and his bedside manner is so comforting you know you are in good hands. His associate, Dr. Gromisch is also receiving this mark for his wonderfully caring and intelligent contributions to my visit.
1st office visit after telling dr have burning from pelvic area to mouth and much more serious symptoms examined my stomach made lude comment about having hot stomach. Should have been red flag. Could not stay on computer for longer than a few minutes before having assistant finish inputting info. Sent me for radiology and stool testing. When returned for follow up was told by office staff member computer is down and was down all day which it was not Another staff member told me so which i believed. Asked if had my test results said no everything in computer. Asked why I was not called and had to leave work a few hours early. Was told when called prior to that day had results. What no back up system? What gives? Asked lazy staff member to have faxed. Could not think for themselves or care. Said would do. I came w one test result I acquired on my own from past experience w other drs. Was extremely frustrated at this point being I've been suffering for long time and looking for answers. When dr came into examining room w office member he told me computer was down. I had said I have one of the test results and that it was crazy that a patient had to bring copy of their own test result that dr sent me for. His reply was if you are going to call me crazy I suggest you see another GI then walked out. I was in total Shock. Could not believe what I heard. Did not call him crazy! Also staff member said did have other test faxed over and when I asked for it on my way out said do not have you call this a medical practice. Go elsewhere.
Scheduled a colonoscopy. No problems with his staff. I was asked to arrive half an hour early. Setup started a bit before the scheduled time and everything seemed prompt and efficient. No apparent issues. Dr. Pullano spent an adequate time describing the results and answering my questions. I'd use him again.
Diagnosed with diverticulitis in 2 areas of colon. Office staff not prompt with answering calls or follow up. Lenox Hill Radiology sent results over same day. Called Pullano's office 5 days later and was told they weren't in. Called Lenox Hill Radiology to resend the results. Pullano's staff (Jenny) said that Lenox Hill lied about sending the results AND I QUOTE "They always tell patients that the results were sent and they aren't". As if a BIG Radiology lab versus a private physician would lie. Think twice about Dr. Pullano's staff. He himself is great. It's the staff looking to point the finger for not following up on perhaps serious medical conditions. Shameful......
