    Our provider and the fellow working with her did an exceptional job. They both were thorough in my child's history. They were attentive to him and my husband and I. Very personable and kind. Overall a great experience when you are concerned about your child. We walked out happy and confident that we saw the best provider.

  • 7/30/2018

    Excellent first-time visit. Dr. Christiano reviewed my medical records (which were ordered by my pulmonologist/ENT MDs) including CTs, PFTs, labs and discussed these with me. She provided written information/handouts re: her diagnosis of my illness.

    extremely relieved because I had been going to appointments for 2 months and in completely misery itching constantly with nothing relieving. She was able to give diagnosis and also stated she had to follow protocol but would be able to solve problem and their were medicines available that would control problem.

  • 5/22/2018

    made me feel at ease, I was nervous about having my son tested for food allergies, let me talk first and just listened

    Dr. Cristiano takes her profession seriously. She is knowledgeable and compassionate.

  • 3/24/2018

    I would recommend her to anyone. One of the best experiences I've had with a doctor. Knowledgeable, personable, good listener, couldn't ask for any better!

  • 3/24/2018

    Would not recommend.

  • 11/2/2017

    I felt this doctor interrupted me before I was fully able explain the scope of my symptoms and based on the few symptoms she actually listened to me mention, made a hurried diagnosis and brushed off my concerns. I suppose i wouldn't have been so shocked had i not been told to see her in the first place because many of my other specialists felt there was something more going on. She, however, seemed not to care what the other doctors might think and appeared to have come to the conclusion about my diagnosis before even entering the room.

    Excellent Physician. Her compassion and concerns about my son's care were genuine. Her knowledge surpassed my expectations. She were not only concern about my chief complaint, but for his overall health. Thank you very much.
