Patient Reviews

  • “Dr. Gentile was very informative regarding the injury. He was genuinely caring and concerned about Mario's injury to his wrist. We did not feel rushed through the appointment, and Dr. Gentile explained in detail the injury, treatment, and recovery time. His staff called several times to make sure all was ok, and we were on the right path to recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Gentile and his team to others. It has been a pleasure and a relief to know we can count on Dr. Gentile in time of need.”
